Hi! My name is Sionn (Irish name pronounced shu-oon which means 'fox') but my hooman siblings call me Bagel the Beagle. I'm guessed to be about 1 .5 years old but my foster mom thinks I maybe older as I have such soulful eyes and a mild mannered demeanor.

I'm so happy to have been picked to come up to Northern Virginia where I can receive the care and attention I need. I'm a very sweet boy and what you would call the epitome of what you would want in a beagle: Ive got the soft floppy ears, big brown eyes, owner loyalty, dog and kid friendly. I'm affectionate and easygoing and would be the perfect companion for big families and new dog owners.
I'm about 24 lbs and love to eat - dog food, treats, human food, you name it, I'll eat it. I'll even sing for my food whether you like it or not - HA! I have 3 fur siblings to play with and we all get along great. I'm a pretty low key guy preferring to snuggle next to my foster mom, sleep on my bed during the day, or give everyone in the house the 'sad puppy eye' stare so they'll give me treats. I walk great on a leash and enjoy being on the trails behind the house and saying hi to other dogs and people (sometimes I insist on getting closer but foster mom says that we could only say hi from 6 ft). I'm pretty much house trained but have had a few accidents in the house due to the medication I'm taking that makes me drink A LOT of water.
Now that on my way to getting better, I am excited to find my forever home. I'm not too picky; I just want someone or a family to love and to love me back. I would love to have a fur sibling to show me how fun it is to be a dog like playing with toys, chewing on bones, and chasing balls. Foster mom says I can go to my forever home sometime in the middle of June after my HW treatment. Would you like to meet me because I would like to meet you! Fill out an application today!
This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito producing a positive test in six months. OPH will treat the dog and provide two weeks of recovery time prior to adoption. Potential adopters will receive detailed information on the disease and their role in completing the recovery process from OPH’s heartworm coordinator. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
