Hi! as my name suggests, our latest addition is Sadie, an 8 month old shelter adopted beagle. She joins our other 5 canine family members, none of which are beagles! We have Daisy, a 11 yr old Basset Hound, rescue, Chloe, an 8 year old Blood Hound, also a rescue, Maggie, a 7 year old great dane, (the dumbest dog on the planet, but we love her anyway!) Rogue, a 2 year old Kelpie I believe is a permanent foster (my sons dog) and Moose, a 3 year old St. Bernard, also a rescue. I adore my big dogs, but my heart belongs to the scent hounds, and Sadie is my third beagle, so I am well acquainted with all of thier wiles! I live on a couple of acres in rural eastern iowa with my DH, and a 14 yo stepson still at home. The others have all flown the coop, scattered all over the country, and one currently serving with the USMC in Iraq. I work as a vet assistant for a mixed large/small animal practice and I hope I can add some useful info. I have previously done transport for great danes in rescue and worked with BH rescue as well. I look forward to posting some pics and getting to know all of you better. Thanks for welcoming me in!
