Beetle: “In the grand scheme of the Universe, humans are the size of salt granuals. Yet humans accomplish and influence the world. - Same with beetles. Size is only perception. Beetles have just as much impact in this world as humans.” ~ Avia
Little guy was a stray. Picked up by animal control and brought to safety at local pound but never claimed. We dont think he had a very good life before so it might have been a good thing.

Healthy and ready for adoption!
Small and compact! Less than 45 Lbs. He's just a tiny little guy. Beautiful, shiny black coat.
Who's a shelter favorite? Little Beetle is! He is so easy and sweet, submissive and loving. He's perfect in his kennel; keeps it cleaned and tidy and doesn't make a peep. Beetle likes his little den and comfy blankets and is not destructive. He is not reactive to the dogs walking by his kennel and goes in and out easily without causing any problems. We wish all our dogs were as polite and well behaved as this one.
He's a doll! Even though he's a boy, lol. Seriously, so sweet and easy, loving and eager to please. Beetle as a sensitive personality and gets scared easily but he sooooo wants to be loved and pampered. He's quickly realizing that everyone he meets is nice and caring now, and you can tell he is thrilled to make friends. He's not shy at all; just a little unsure because he probably met some shady people before. This is all behind him now. The future is bright and happy!
Beetle's energy level is medium but he's coming out of his shell more and more. He has started to play and enjoy himself in the yard. He still likes cuddling more than playing right now but we believe he will become increasingly active and lively has he discovers the good life.
Behavior with people:
Super sweet! He loves people and you can tell how relieved he is to finally meet humans that love him too. He's definitely a people-dog but was dealt a bad hand. He sure is poring his whole little heart making up for it now. What a sweetheart!
Behavior with children:
Unknown but we think he would be great with kids because he is so sweet and loving. That said, we want to make sure kids would be great with him as well. The little guy is sensitive and wasn't always treated well. If placed with kids, we'd like reassurance they would treat him gently and with kindness. A home with older, mature and respectful kids is preferred.
Behavior with other dogs:
Beetle was introduced to other dogs before and did ok. He likes people way more though. He could probably share a home with a compatible female but would love to be an only pet, getting all the attention for himself.
Behavior with other animals:
Little training but he's very eager to please. He learned how to go through the doggy door quickly to potty in his outside kennel and keeps the inside clean.
A real sweetheart who's small size makes perfect for your lap. Beetle is no trouble and should enjoy just about any living situation; A big house with a fenced yard or a small apartment in town. He's not picky at all, as long as he is loved and pampered like he deserves. This little guy will make his loved-ones very happy, we guaranty it!
