Dogs Needing Homes


Breed: Pug Beagle

Age: Senior
Sex: Male
Size: Small
Description: Abdul is a HIDDEN GEM in our rescue. He is often overlooked because of his age but he's an amazing dog.

Abdul is a quiet and reserved older gentleman of a dog. He made himself at home quickly when he came into his foster home and gets along with the four humans and the canine very well. He can no longer hear, so spends quite a bit of time patrolling the house so he knows what's going on with everyone, but settles nicely when there is nothing exciting happening that needs his attention. The preferred place to settle is on a lap or a couch next to someone with a free hand to scratch his back.

He is fully house trained and crates well. Abdul enjoys walks and likes to be in the lead. He even plays chase with his young (and much bigger) foster brother in the yard on occasion. Since he can't hear to avoid being run over by little feet, it would be best if his new family did not include young children. He will be a great companion and would love to find a forever home in which to settle. Abdul was found as a stray in Missouri. He loves to toodle around the back yard and he is a sweet boy. We are estimating that he is about ten years old, and he seems to be a little hard of hearing. He has been doing really well with house training, too!

Abdul is neutered, received a dental with health screening bloodwork, brought utd with shots, tested for heartworm and put on prevention, dewormed, frontlined, and micro-chipped. Abdul's adoption fee is only $230 even though this does not even begin to cover the cost of the vetting care he has received while in SDR care.

You must fill out an adoption application before you are allowed to meet the animal. Please complete the adoption application located on our website.

Small Dog Rescue of MN does not negotiate the adoption fee on our dogs and we must charge sales tax on all adoption fees in order to comply with Minnesota state law. Please note that SDR is philisophically opposed to the idea of buying and selling animals, and we support any future legislation that would remove sales tax from adoption fees. Until then, however, we must charge it.

We are offering a microchip placement for your resident dog for small donation to our rescue

Please note that we do not have a shelter, and all dogs are in foster homes. Since we strive to provide the best possible care for our animals, sometimes we cannot answer emails promptly. Please allow 48 hours for us to respond to you.

You must be 18 years of age to make an adoption request
