Hagrid would love to meet you! He would do best in a quiet, experienced home with family members 15+ and continued training.

Hagrid is one of our adoptable dogs that is participating in the New Year New Home Adoption Event from January 19th through January 27th. The event will be held at the Pippen Fasseas Adoption Center at 1997 N. Clybourn Ave in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood. Hagrid is currently spending time in a foster home, please email to learn more about him. Adoption Fees will be waived for select animals such as Hagrid. The refundable $100 training fee will still be charged at the time of adoption.

Hagrid's Story

Hagrid is a six year old Dachshund mix looking for cuddles, peanut butter, and a home to call his own. The brown coat and smattering of grey whiskers are the only things this little fellow has in common with his Harry Potter namesake - he doesn’t need adventures or magical creatures to keep him happy; just a soft treat (who wants the crunch and work of a hard treat?) and a lap to sit on will make him swoon. Hagrid is a bit of a homebody and prefers nights in over trips to dog parks or other places his four-legged counterparts congregate.


Hagrid is looking for a quiet home with experienced owners, who should all be at least fifteen years old, and would enjoy continuing his training. Recently, Hagrid spent time in a foster home and let his foster know that he is a bit skeptical of strangers in his home. He values a slow, calm introduction when making new human friends. Not that he is ashamed of his table manners, but Hagrid would prefer not to be watched while he is enjoying his daily meals. If you think you can fulfill Hagrid’s wish of cuddles, quiet, and continued training, email us at to learn more about how you can bring him home!
