Beagles are one of the most family-friendly, congenial dog breeds around. Connor, our adoptable pet of the week, is a 9-year-old Beagle mix, and he certainly lives up to that happy-go-lucky reputation. He likes people, other dogs and even cats.

We wish that we could tell you that life for Connor has been easy until now, but, sadly, he's been moved from home to home. Most recently, he was with a family for 11 months, but they lived in an apartment and could not be home enough with Connor, so he barked and howled a bit for attention. The neighbors did not approve.

Connor is now at the Humane Society of Huron Valley hoping to finally find his forever home.

This sweet older dog does need someone who can be with him much of the time — he deserves that after all. He will be a constant companion and will be at your side when you are home. He likes to go for walk,s but if he smells something he likes, the direction of your walk may be based on what's in the air! This is true for many beagles.

The best home for Connor would be a family where someone in around to give him attention and love. Someone that has had a beagle and has a knowledge of the breed is also very important in Connor’s case as well. Connor epitomizes much of the beagle breed characteristics.

All of the pets at HSHV are spayed or neutered, up to date on all vaccinations and microchipped before leaving the shelter, a cost that is included in the low adoption fee. Please stop by HSHV between the hours of noon and 6 p.m., seven days a week, to visit our adoptable animals.
