Baby Beagle isn’t a baby at all, but that was the name she came with, so we are leaving it! She is fostered in a home where another dog about her size adores her, and a cat who seeks her out and invites her to play. Sometimes you just never know what you’re going to get! In this case, we thought we were getting an older dilapidated beagle girl who was going to need slow recovery time in a foster home. Instead, after successful surgery to repair a pretty intense hernia, this gal has rebounded and turned into a spring chicken!

 

Baby has come SO far since she was brought to us by the family who said they rescued her from being a stray in their mobile home park! We have no clue about the validity of her origin, other than that she is well-socialized, loves children, is fine with cats, AND is gentle with other dogs! She is hanging out now in a home with another nice beagle mix, and pays little attention to him, as she seems infatuated with toys and her toy basket.  Now that medically she is healed, she is feeling pretty fantastic! It was not an easy fix for her, as she needed  surgery to correct a hernia that allowed her intestines, uterus, and her bladder to move around. She is now healed, and was declared to be ready for a new home!  Here is her own bio:

"I'm a chunky-monkey and I love treats, smelling everything I can get my sniffer close to, and running far away from the humans who want to walk me on a leash! I love putting my nose to the ground, and I can focus really well once I smell something enticing and yummy! I might want to go to work as a police dog or an enforcer at the airport screening the good things that come in through International gates! Yes, I'm that good! Although I'm an older lady, I am fine getting around and can give you a run for your money.  I lived on my own in a mobile home park for several weeks, according to one of the stories I heard going around, and I'm fine with other dogs. Mostly, I do love sniffing and eating!"   

 

Baby is positive for heartworms, and is being treated with the least-aggressive method we know, which is monthly medication to kill the new microfilaria and allow the mature heartworms to die off slowly. This method is the one we prefer for active dogs that would have a hard time limiting their activity level during the two-month course of treatment if we used the aggressive injectable immiticide to kill off adult heartworms.
