Ol' Blue Eyes has stolen our hearts! Five years old, our Sinatra has come to the sad realization, that his loving owner is too ill to care for him. This beautiful boy is clearly a Beagle, but he may have a hint of something else in his DNA to explain those dreamy peepers.

When Sinatra first arrived, he had been staying with his owner's neighbor, and appeared a little bit confused, as his life went from one major shake-up to another. We agreed to take him on as a short-term border, while his owner was recovering, but soon it became clear that her illness had taken a dramatic turn for the worse. Sinatra was extremely shut down when we met him, and it took him a good while to open up to people. As he adjusted to life in our home, we observed that other dogs were key in helping Sinatra find his inner puppy joy, and make the human connection.

Sinatra loves to play, and has a very docile, good natured demeanor. He would be the ideal candidate for a multi-dog home, with one or two calm dogs that could help him feel his way in a new family environment. Sinatra will greet stangers with shy reticence, but he warms nicely as the bond builds with his people. Patient Adopters will be rewarded with great love and affection, as Sinatra learns to trust.

We think Sinatra would be best suited to an active single or couple with patience to let him warm at his own pace. He is the ideal choice for folks who enjoy helping a rescue dog bounce back from rough beginnings. Sinatra might be frightened by Toddler antics, but will blend in quickly with other dogs or cats.

Adopters can quicken the bonding process with frequent leash walks and ongoing obedience work. As a Scent Hound, Sinatra makes the most of his outdoors time, by savoring the aromas that nature offers. This simple activity challenges mind and body, and brings a shy dog like Sinatra into a state of restful balance. After a leisurely stroll, Sinatra is ready for his obedience workout. He now knows most commands, and is both treat and praise motivated.

Sinatra looks like a purebred Beagle, with the classic tricolor pattern. He is a lean, small, compact dog at ideal weight of 26 pounds, and is an appropriate size for home or apartment. Despite Beagle reputation, Sinatra is not much of a barker. He has good house manners, and is house trained and crate trained, although adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will occur during his transition to a new home.

Sinatra is in excellent health and has been recently neutered. He is vaccinated for Rabies, Parvo, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Distemper, Parainfluenza and Coronavirus. He has been dewormed, and has tested negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis.
