Beagle (short coat) : : Female : : Senior : : Medium
Bunny now has an adoption pending. Thank you!
Bunny came to us on Easter morning from a local shelter who was anxious to get her into a home as quickly as possible because she was full-term pregnant, and a pound is no place for a dog to have puppies. She had other health concerns besides the large litter she was carrying - she tested positive for Lyme disease and her teeth were in horrible condition and one tooth became infected. She’s had a dental, so all that nasty tooth business has been taken care of. She whelped ten healthy puppies and was a wonderful mother to them all. They’ve all gone on to their forever homes and now it’s Bunny’s turn!
She’s scheduled to be spayed in late June, and at that time we will also begin her month-long course of antibiotics to treat the Lyme disease. She should be ready to be adopted around the beginning of July, but her adopter must be committed to continuing her antibiotics until her treatment is complete. She’s an easy pill-taker if you hide it in a tasty treat, so that shouldn’t present any difficulty.
Our vet has guesstimated her age to be about nine, though it’s really hard to know for sure. She’s a dog who loves, if not craves, attention, and will paw at you to make sure you know she’s right there. Bunny was most likely a hunting dog in her previous life She may not have been an indoor dog before coming here, but if so, she’s acclimated well. She’s come a long way with her housebreaking and does pretty good overall, and is completely reliable if crated. Potential adopters should know that she’s a beagle through and through, including her typical hound vocalization “Awrooo!” Of course she’d love a fenced yard, as she’s enjoyed that in her foster home and has even taught herself how to come and go as she pleases through the doggie door.
