Meet Chuckles, A Senior Beagle With A Sense Of Humor

Each week we feature pets available for adoption from C.A.R.E. at Evanston's Animal Shelter.

Chuckles is a fine example of the Beagle tribe—curious, independent and persistent. Despite his age, Chuckles is still active, agile and looking forward to  daily walks. "That way I can put my nose to work and exercise my heart and legs, too," Chuckles says (or would say if he could talk).

Since he's such a sociable dog, Chuckles really likes having a person around to keep him company. "Otherwise I tend to worry," Chuckles says. "Everyone who meets me says I’m friendly and affectionate, and ready to make you laugh with my bubbly personality. If you’re looking for a buddy with an optimistic attitude and a sense of adventure—it could well be me!"

Chuckles' Stats:

  • Beagle, 12 - 15 years old, Neutered male.
  • ASPCA Canine-ality™ Assessment rating: Orange / Busy Bee
  • Medium size/weighs 45 lbs. Needs to lose weight.
  • Children 10 and up so Chuckles isn’t overwhelmed.
  • Chuckles is okay with cats but he doesn’t like other dogs.
  • Attendance in D.O.G. Obedience class is required.
  • Housebreaking: Chuckles needs minimal housebreaking.
  • Chuckles is neutered, microchipped and has had a full veterinary checkup and vaccines. He is being monitored for thyroid issues, and would be a trial adoption until medically cleared.
