This little 3-month-old beagle/spaniel mix is ready to become master of all he surveys.

His intelligence is apparent in his expression and he's waiting for a new owner to come get him so they can learn about the world together.

White with brown and black markings, he gives new meaning to "cute as a button."

Workers at Newton County Animal Control say he should make an ideal pet and will weigh approximately 45 pounds when fully grown.
