I was going to wait until I had more info to share, such as a name and other important items, but I am too happy to wait. So this is the pre-announcement announcing the arrival of a new beagley family member, who will be announced in more detail in an upcoming announcement.
This little girl was in a catch and kill pound which allows someone in to photograph dogs. The photographer then sends out an e-mail with the pictures and that e-mail gets forwarded by various pet advocates. Someone forwarded me the e-mail containing the beagle pic one week ago and with the help of some people I’ve never met, the dog was pulled, fostered and transported to within 90 minutes of me. I picked her up yesterday.
Her bones are sticking out, half her tail got left somewhere at some point and she looks generally like she’s been through the wringer. But she is as gentle and sweet as can be. She’s been sleeping in one of the beagle beds like she has never slept before in her life. She’s only gotten up when it’s time to eat or to go out and potty. We have a vet appointment today for a tune-up and an all points inspection. You can count on seeing an update on this gal very soon.
Thank you so kindly to everyone who sent me beagles in need. And of course to those who helped me get this sweet dog home.
