WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- Washington Animal Rescue League has a new pet of the week.

Cool Dude is a 3-year-old beagle mix. He is sweet, gentle, and a bit timid. But once he gets to know and trust you, he's not afraid to let his emotions show, and will happily snuggle and cuddle.

Cool Dude enjoys the company of other dogs and would probably like living with a friendly canine companion as a playmate and role model.

But most of all, he craves a loving, patient home where he can continue to blossom and build a lifetime of memories with his people.
