Adoptable Beagle

The neighbors who found George as a stray down at the Overlook earlier this winter are now fostering him for the city animal shelter. He is a neutered male beagle (and basset?) mix who is about a year old and 25-30 pounds. He is house trained and crate trained and is a quick learner and already knows a few tricks. George loves every person and dog he meets and is very social. He enjoys rides in the car, trips to the dog park, playing fetch and playing with his foster sister. He still has a lot of puppy energy so he’d love a fenced yard and/or a doggie sibling to play with. Not sure how he is with cats. For more information, contact Richmond Animal Care and Control.
