A few days ago we considered adopting Tasha and I posted her picture for you guys. I asked for some more recent pictures and realized that she is much bigger than I had anticipated. We really wanted a dog about Squeegee's size so we wanted to keep looking.

We decided to go by the shelter tonight and see if any hound dogs needed a home. We saw a couple sweet, happy looking ones. Then we saw a shy, scared Beagle mix shaking and curled in a ball in her cell. Well, of course we went in to see her and she was so scared that she was huddling in the corner trying to hide her face. We just sat with her for a while giving her treats which she was too scared to eat from our hands. Poor little thing. We spent about an hour with her during which time she warmed up enough to stop shaking and take a few treats from our hand. She still wont come to you but made a little progress.

She is a pretty girl who was found on the side of the road and is about 6 months old. We really couldn't just leave her there so we put down our deposit on her tonight. They always spay/neuter their dogs before releasing them so she will be spayed tomorrow and we will pick her up on Saturday.

I know she has a long way to go and we may have some challenges. Hopefully a loving home with a playmate will help her come out of her shell. Can't wait to get her home! We havent decided on a name yet. I'll post pics soon.

Some little girl found a hero tonight!!! I cannot describe how emotional it is to walk out the door of a shelter with a dog and watch it realize that he/she IS GOING HOME!!! She may have some baggage, but it's nothing some love and patience won't fix. Please post some photos as soon as you can!!

It's amazing how fast they can make progress in the correct environment. You are right when you say that you will probably have some challenges ahead. I know with Sulli we sure do, but somehow she has wormed her way into our hearts and she is very well loved, issues and all. I'm sure your little one will too. Thanks for caring enough about animals to take the one that may have had a harder time finding a good home.

Can you tell I am excited for you?!!! That is so awesome that you picked this little girl!! It's so sad to hear a beagle be so shy since they are known for the opposite, but it will be so completely rewarding to see her become the beagle she was meant to be!! I know she doesn't know just yet that her Angel came to her yesterday, but I am so excited for her to figure that out!!!!

Can't wait to see pics!!

HURRAY!!!!


Congratulations, you've just become someone's angel. Poor thing! I'm sure that with plenty of TLC and time, she'll be a sweetheart. And shelter dogs always give you this look of gratitude...as if they knew what was going to happen to them.

Best wishes for you and your very special new addition!

Thank you for rescuing her, give her time once you get her home. We left Susi and Snoopy in peace when we collected them and they slept and slept.
