Hi, I'm Venus. On hold.
Beagle | Baby | Female | Small
Due to the number of applications already received, we are no longer accepting new ones while we process the existing ones.
Venus and her siblings were surrendered to us from a hunter who, due to medical issues, could no longer care for them. They are all friendly, social puppies. Like all young puppies, they will need training, including housebreaking, to grow up to become well- mannered adults.
It is a good thing puppies are so cute, because they can be a lot of work at first! They will need someone who is home a good portion of the day. Due to their size and activity level, they will need a single family home or townhouse (no apartments) and would be best with kids over 10 years. Though we can’t predict size when they are full grown, their mother was approximately 20 lbs and father was around 30 lbs. So we expect they will be somewhere in between.
Venus is a little spitfire. She loves running around the yard and pouncing on her siblings. She also enjoys grabbing your shoes and pant legs as you try to walk! She is the smallest of the bunch.
If you are interested in meeting any of them, please fill out an application. Although Venus (and her sibs) will not attend adoption events, best-matched adopters will be invited to visit her in her foster home in Hyattsville, Maryland. The adoption fee for Venus is $400.
