In shelter Dog

Indianapolis, IN, 46220
Pet name:
Hi! People call me Tonka, and Im starting to get used to the name, especially if they have snacks. Snacks are pretty good. My foster mom says she knows I am a beagle because Im stubborn, bark a lot, and love food. Shes right, but theres a lot of other things I like too! I love ear rubs, back scratches, sniffing all of the yard, every day, all day long and baying at all the smells. Theres a lot of smells, and I dont like to miss any of them. My foster mom said my bay is really loud, but I think her and the neighbors are nuts. I love being close to my people and my foster brothers and sister. I love playing and hip-checking the other dogs when they least expect it. Nibbling their ears and tails is my favorite because then we zoomy, race around the yard and wrestling is the best! I sure enjoy my friends. 

My foster mom says Im built like a linebacker and my feet are big, but I think my feet are perfect for walking, running, hunting, and playing! Im a really good boy. Im always happy. I never have accidents in the house, I know how to use the doggy door, and I never dig. Im learning to cuddle with people, and I love sleeping in the bed with my brothers and sisters, but I dont mind the kennel or dog bed too.

The ideal home for Tonka would:
-have a doggy companion or two
-have a fenced in yard
-not have shared walls
-stay on top of nail trims (Tonka came in with embedded nails and he still has his rear dew claws)
-be patient and loving
-have beagle experience

Please contact the good folks at HoundSong to learn more about Tonka! 

Adoption Fee: $300
If you have questions about this dog, the adoption process, or are interested in meeting a dog, please visit and complete the adoption application. No meet and greets will be scheduled without the completion and approval of an adoption application. All our dogs live in foster homes, so a meet and greet will have to be scheduled with the foster family. 

HoundSong Rescue dogs are vaccinated, spayed/neutered, and microchipped. HoundSong Rescue also offers Fi Collars for an additional $100 fee. Fi Collars are GPS collars with many other features we find valuable when owning a hound. Our amazing adoption coordinators will happily answer any questions you have in regards to the Fi Collar and the dog you are interested in adopting.
