Hi everyone let me tell you a little about how Kennedy came to be with us. It all started when my fiance and I were channel surfing we came upon a dog show and saw the most beautiful and playful beagle.
He didn't care that he was in a show he just wanted to play, We fell in love! So off the the internet I go to do a little research well a little turned into a lot and we decided we had to get a beagle. We originally wanted to get one from a breeder at a very young age but fate had other plans. After making some phone calls talking with breeders and making some appointments to see some of the pups. We were out shopping and decided to go to one of the big pet stores in our area well we walk in and what do we see Our beautiful Kennedy she was an adorable 4 mo. old, a little older than we wanted and a little more than we wanted to spend (we were told that she was papered and chiped well yes she is chiped but the papered part we were taken on)but that's okay we don't care I think we were meant to save her. You see when we got her her legs were a little bowed so when we took her to the vet I asked about it. The vet said that it was probably because she had been in a kennel at the pet store for 2 mo!!! So I feel like we saved her and I would do it all over again she is worth every penny and more.
oh and her legs are getting better with exercise just as the vet had said.
Thank You for letting me share.
Nettie & Kennedy

Welcome to Beagle World. I love the name Kennedy. Poor baby. I am so glad you have her. My Maggie also came from a pet store. I didn't know about puppy mills and how she came to be there until after I got her. Maggie was 8 weeks when we got her and just turned a year. I look forward to hearing more stories about Kennedy.

Welcome to the BW pack!

Papers? We don't need no stinkin' papers! Here we accept all types of beagles, from 100% pure to beagle mixes all the way to honorary (they don't even look or sound like a beagle, but have family members that do!)

Good luck with your new pupper!

Welcome to BW, Nettie and Kennedy!

I love that name!!! So happy you rescued her from the pet store. Grrrr...I don't think pet stores should even sell puppies but that's another subject.

Like Joe says, who needs papers? My Henry came with alot of papers...all bills for vet care as he was a sick little guy when we rescued him. He's all better now.

Glad you found BW.

Yeah we don't need no stinkin' papers either but we sure paid for them. but I'd do it all over again just the same to have my Kennedy!

Pictures to come just as soon as I get my digital camera for my B-day next month.

Any papers from a pet store are not worth the paper they are written on anyways. Most pet stores that sell dogs get them from puppy mills through brokers. That is probably the most likely reason her legs were bowed. Poor baby. You really did rescue her. Give her extra love. Puppy mills are horrible places. I love the name too.
