Jerry – Adopted December 2020

About Me

Meet Jerry
Status: Fostered
Estimated Age: 8-10 Years
Estimated Weight: 45 Pounds (big boy!)

NOTE: No young children; no cats.

UPDATE – 5 NOVEMBER 2020: Jerry has become quite comfortable in his foster home and has settled into a routine. He loves to curl up on the couch with us and certainly knows how to get comfortable. He has claimed a spot in bed at night, mostly at the foot of the bed, but some nights we’ll find him right up in between us. He is very attached to my husband and follows him everywhere. He will snuggle up next to you and paw at you if he thinks you’ve stopped petting him or rubbing his belly too soon. He does great in the crate when we’re at work and is rarely marking anymore. He gets very excited when he sees his leash and loves to go on walks or lounge in the backyard. He does well with our older mellow dogs, but will bark if a dog comes up and startles him or if he sees larger dogs on our walks, so he would be best as an only dog or with an older low key dog. Jerry deserves a retirement home to call his own. He promises be your loyal companion!

UPDATE – 26 SEPTEMBER 2020 (from foster mom): Jerry is loving life in his new foster home and has been soaking up all the attention. He’s affectionate and is always game for a good belly rub. He will even nudge you to keep going if you stop too soon. He doesn’t care much about toys but loves bones. He’s a larger beagle mix but thinks he’s a lap dog and will often hop up on the couch into my husband’s lap. He’s definitely got a beagle nose, so we do have to watch what’s on the edge of the counter. He is working on his leash manners as he does pull when walking on a leash, but in his defense, he’s just so excited to go on a walk. He will frequently go to the door asking to go out and is happiest when exploring in the backyard or laying on the deck. He still has plenty of energy but is also a huge fan of a long afternoon nap. He’s crate trained and house trained, though he has marked a few times. Jerry has a few simple requests for his retirement home. He’d like a fenced yard where he can roam and no cats. He says older children and calm dogs would be ok. Jerry wonders if you’re the one who will provide him with a new home? He promises lots of love and loyalty in return!

UPDATE – 19 SEPTEMBER 2020: Jerry joined us at the adoption event today and did great! He is a big boy but seems like a nice boy. We can tell he has been in a home before – seems to know some commands. Jerry wasn’t adopted today, but he did head off to a foster home where we will be able to learn a lot more about him. Stay tuned!

NEW – 31 AUGUST 2020: Jerry is a 8-10-year-old beagle boy who is looking for a quiet place to retire and call home. He’s looking for a nice yard and porch where he can spend his days lounging. He would do best in a home with older children. He’s house trained and crate trained. He is available and eager to find his new home.


Q:  Can you tell me more about a specific dog?  Is s/he good with kids / housetrained / good with cats/ etc?

A:  What we know is in the write up.  Our knowledge about any dog that is not in a foster homes is limited.  Once approved, our adoption coordinators will work with you to match you with the right dog.

Q:  Can I meet a specific dog?

A:  We’re sorry, but you must be an approved adopter to meet our dogs.  Pre-pandemic, dogs could be met at adoption days, but you still had to be approved to adopt from an adoption day.

Q:  How can I adopt a specific dog?

A:  You must submit an adoption application and be approved to adopt.  You can do that under Adopt – you can also learn about the adoption process there..  It will take about two weeks for an adoption coordinator to get in touch with you.  Please keep in mind that dogs that are available now may be adopted in the meantime.  But we are always getting new dogs.   You can see them on our website.

Q:  Can I add another dog to the list on my application?

A:  We don’t hold you to the dogs you listed on your application.  It gives us an idea of what you are looking for.  Plus it will let us know if someone is interested in one of our special needs / hard to place dogs.

Q:  I indicated that I was interested in a specific dog on my application, but I see that s/he has been adopted.  What happened?

A:  We do not hold dogs.  Applicants in the queue before you are being approved and may adopt the dog you are interested in before you are approved.  But we are always getting new dogs in and your adoption coordinator will help you find the perfect match.
