Adopt Oscar a Beagle Dog in Missouri

This adorable fellow is Oscar.  He's a tricolor Beagle and about 1 1/2 years old.  As you can see from his adoption video, Oscar knows how to sit for treats and he loves toys.

According to the American Kennel Club:
Beagles are happy-go-lucky and friendly, making them a wonderful family pet.  They are also favored for their compact size and short easy to care for coat.  Since they lived in packs for hundreds of years, they naturally enjoy the company of other dogs and humans.  Curous and comedic, they often follow their noses - which can lead to some mischief if they are not provided with daily activity.

Oscar loves people and is waiting for an active forever home.  He's adoptable from the Humane Society of Missouri in St Louis.  Find out more about Oscar by calling 314-951-1562.  Oscar's animal ID number is A575648

Since 1870, the Humane Society of Missouri has been dedicated to second chances.  They provide a safe and caring haven to animals - large and small - that have been abused, neglected or abandoned.  Their mission is to end the cycle of abuse and overpopulation, assist in creating lasting relations hips between people and animals, offer world-class veterinary care, plus offer pet obedience and behavior programs.  HSMO operates three animal shelters in the St Louis, Missouri, area, plus Longmeadow Rescue Ranch in Union, Missouri, for abused and neglected horses, cows, goats, chickens and other farm animals.

We are participating in the Tuesday's Tails blog hop hosted by Dogs N Pawz and Talking Dogs.  This is the blog hop that features shelter pets.  Find a pet at your local animal shelter or rescue and join us!  Please help spread the word about these beautiful animals via social media and let's find them forever homes!

New York Times Magazine writer Benoit Denizet-Lewis worried that his dog, Casey, didn't like him very much.  So Benoit rented an RV, lured Casey inside with treats, and embarked on a 13,000 mile road trip designed to help them bond.  

Along the way they spent time with wolf-dogs in Appalachia, dedicated stray dog rescuer Randy Grim, got pulled over by a K9 cop in Missouri,  visited Cesar Millan and so much more.  The result is Travels with Casey: My Journey Through Our Dog-Crazy Country.
Benoit spent a full week with Randy Grim, founder of Stray Rescue of St Louis, his staff and volunteers, rescuing stray and feral dogs in East St Louis, one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in our country.  Randy has devoted his life to the dogs society has forgotten.

Benoit has set up a Dream at DreamFund to benefit Stray Rescue of St Louis.  All monies raised will go directly to rescuing, feeding, and rehabilitating dogs helped by Stray Rescue.  Benoit hopes to raise $5,000 by August 20, 2014.
