  • DNA TESTED! Beech's DNA test revealed that he is a Rhodesian Ridgeback, St. Bernard, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Boxer, and Unknown Terrier (probably Jack Russell) mix. He exhibits many traits of the Jack Russell Terrier and the Boxer. Both breeds use their paws in a cat-like manner, as Beechnut does. Very cute to watch. :)  


Beechnut adores children. He will cuddle with them and watch over them, and he doeesn't mind if they share their snacks with him. :)


Beechnut's ideal adopter is any family looking for a loyal, cuddly couch buddy and playmate. His former home was with 3 very young children who he was great with. He lost his home recently due to divorce. Beech is the type of dog that a child who grew up with him would never forget. Your son or daughter will be telling their kids one day about the dream dog they had growing up! He would also make a great playmate for another dog or two. He just isn't friendly with cats or stranger dogs when he is on a leash.

Beech is super housetrained - he would rather explode than soil the house! He makes a great watch dog and will alert you to any strange activity going on outside the house. He enjoys playing with stuffed animals and basking outdoors in the sunshine. A fenced yard is required for Beech.    

If you think Beech could be The One for you, contact us today. This write-up describes his IDEAL home, but please contact us if you are interested, even if that doesn't describe you. It is impossible to fully describe a pet in a brief write-up, so a conversation is best! 

BONUS: One 6-week Basic Obedience Plus class with Woof University sponsored by CARE is provided with the adoption of this dog. Attendence is required within 4 months of adoption.

A completed adoption application and home visit are required for approval to adopt a CARE dog. We do adopt out of state if all vetting is complete. The most accurate and complete information about available dogs can be found on our official website at
