Adopt Alex a Senior Beagle Dog in Missouri

This adorable guy is Alex.  He's a 9 year old Beagle dog mix at the Humane Society of Missouri's St Louis City animal shelter.

Alex loves people and exploring the world.  He appears to be housebroken and walks very nicely on a leash.

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.  Curious and comedic, they often follow their noses - which can lead to some mischief if they are not provided with daily activity.

You'll notice in his video that his tail has been cropped.  Why?  Who knows.  It is an odd look for a Beagle.  You'll also notice a lot of white on Alex's cute face.  At our house we call that sugar because as a dog ages it just gets sweeter.

Take a look at Alex's adoption video and then call the HSMO at 314-951-1562.  His animal ID number is A393644

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!
