Meet Beetle, a floppy-eared, adorable pup who loves to cuddle and be near his humans. He enjoys exploring in the yard, but is just as content chilling out and laying in the sun. He would make the perfect picnic partner! He doesn't know too many commands yet, but is quick to pick them up. An important command he does listen to is, 'Off'. He is super easy-going when left alone and is fully house-trained, so you don't have to worry about any accidents. Beetle also doesn't mind going into his crate when needed.

Sweet Beetle is shy and nervous with new people, but is very gentle and sweet. Once he remembers or recognizes someone, he gets very excited to see them again and is a tail-wagging welcome committee! Beetle is also timid around new dogs, and takes a bit of time to warm up, but could potentially be in a home with a well-matched doggie friend.

Beetle is missing part of his front paw, but you wouldn't know it by watching him walk! He is very capable on three legs most of the time and only occasionally uses his fourth. Beetle is pretty good on a leash, but is cautious on walks, and he prefers quiet strolls away from fast and loud cars. Beetle is the perfect companion for someone working from home and is perfectly happy to sit nearby and get the occasional pat. There's no better relief from a stressful work day than looking down and seeing Beetle's face by your side. Come meet this snuggly boy today!
