This pup is an 8 week old Dachshund mix who weighs in at 2.5 pounds.  Here is what this pup has to say:

Hey there, I'm Bagel, a pint-sized pup with a heart full of courage and a personality that's larger than life! I've had quite the journey, rescued from a hoarding situation in Alabama, and I'm here to tell you why I'd make an incredible addition to your family.

First things first, my size may be small, but my spirit is boundless. I'm the runt of my litter, about a third the size of my bigger brothers, but that doesn't slow me down one bit. I've got unique spots that I inherited from my loving mom, who's been by my side, nursing me even at 8 weeks old. I take after the Chihuahua side of my Chiweenie mother, and let me tell you, I've got quite the hilarious personality to match!

I've been trained to use a puppy pad, and most of the time, I prefer to do my business outside. I've also had some crate training, which helps me feel safe and secure in my own space.

Now, the leash may be a bit of a mystery to me, but I'm a quick learner and eager to explore the world by your side when the time comes. I may be small, but I've got a big heart, and I'm not one to back down from a good adventure.

Here's a fun little secret about me – I love cozying up on a cold morning. If you let me, I'll happily snuggle inside your shirt to warm up, bringing a smile to your face as I share my warmth and affection.

I'm quite adaptable when it comes to family life. Whether you're looking for a solo dog or want to add to your existing fur family, I'm up for the challenge. I get along well with other dogs and love playtime, so I'll be the life of the party in any pack.

So, if you're searching for a furry friend with a big personality, a tiny body, and an even bigger heart, look no further. I'm Bagel, and I'm ready to bring endless joy and love to your home. Let's make unforgettable memories together!

This pup is micro-chipped and up to date on all vaccinations, and  spayed/neutered. The new family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing.  The pup's adoption fee is $475. Please note ARF does not approve applications for any puppy under 6 months of age to families that live outside of Illinois and/or beyond 100 miles of Wheaton or Glen Ellyn, IL.  A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application, so if you're interested in adopting this pup fill out an online application today!  Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting.  ARF is an all volunteer organization.  Due to a high volume of applications, we are often unable to respond to questions until your application has been approved.  Thank you for your patience!

No Longer Available for Adoption

Please see our other dogs or cats available for adoption.

All pets adopted from A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation include the following as part of their adoption fee:

  • Spay/neuter or a certificate for a low-cost spay/neuter when medically recommended
  • Microchip and registration, a permanent identification to reunite lost pets with their owners
  • Initial de-worming and flea and tick treatment
  • Age-appropriate testing for heartworm/FIV-FELV
  • Age-appropriate vaccines
  • Pre-adoption medical exam
  • A certificate for a free healthy pet exam at one of A.R.F.’s participating veterinarians within 7 days of adoption
  • Offer for a no-risk 30 day free trial with Trupanion pet medical insurance

If a cat or dog is on our website, it is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. If you find yourself interested in one of our animals, submit a no-commitment application immediately. Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process. Due to a high volume of applications, we are often unable to respond to questions until your application has been approved in approximately 3-5 business days.

We do not schedule meetings until you have an approved application.

A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals.  The majority of our dogs and cats are brought to adoption events by our volunteers. We invite everyone to come to our events, but we give priority to pre-approved applicants.

If you’re invited to meet an animal:

  • Plan to arrive on time (or early), as we cannot hold animals for any reason.
  • All human household members and dogs (if adopting another dog), must be present in order to be considered as a potential adopter.

Thank you for your interest and cooperation!
