I am a shelter dog. I am a mixed breed puppy, abandoned because I was not wanted. Beagle mix puppies are a dime a dozen where I am from, and for many of my friends, things don't turn out very well. For many of my friends, the right people never walk through the shelter doors to bring them home. For many of my friends, months pass by and as their puppy breath goes away, so does their chance of getting a home.
My story could have ended differently. I am a shelter dog. Call it luck, call it fate, but one day, 10 months ago, some people came in and swooped me out of the bin that I, and my 7 siblings, was living in. I heard them say words like "awe" and "she's adorable" before being put back into my bin. I got a new collar with some funny writing on it and a couple of days later someone brought me to another place where I got a boo-boo on my belly. I thought I was at another shelter, but soon the same people I saw a few days before came and picked me up! They brought me home where I met my 6 new doggy siblings! I was intimidated at first, but soon we were best friends.
I am a shelter dog, but I am more than that. I am a fun and energetic dog. I am a water lover. A frisbee fetcher. A tennis ball chaser. A mud roller.
I am a shelter dog, but I found a home. I found a home where I never have to go hungry, never have to know about the harsh reality that many shelter dogs are forced to know.

I'll be 14 weeks old tomorrow and I've grown so much! I'm already as tall as my big brofurs and sisfurs and I weigh almost 15 lbs! Yesterday I was playing with Bailey and she made me mad. All of a sudden the hairs on my back stood up! It surprised me and I shook it away. Mommy says that I got hackled, whatever that means! I also learned how to howl... I guess that means I'm a hound dog. We still can't figure out what breeds I am! Some people say Beagle/Doberman others say Beagle/German Shepherd! Mommy doesn't know... she just says I'm a cute little mutt! My legs keep getting longer and longer and I can run so fast! There are lots of fun toys here and my brofurs and sisfurs are good at sharing with me. I think they've finally accepted me into their pack. Last weekend when Mommy taked me to Petsmart, they howled when I left. I gots to go fur my next check up next week so I'll let everypup know how much I weigh then!

I had such a fun day today! First, me and my humans went on a short trip to take my Daddy to a man's house so he could go on a business trip. Then we stopped by McDonald's and mommy ordered me a kids meal hamburger (nothing on it) and I got to each the WHOLE thing! It was so yummy! I slept all the way home and then I played outside with the big dogs while Mommy cleaned up the yard. After she finished, she put my pretty new bandanna on me and we got back in the car! We drove for a few minutes and then we went in this really cool place that Mommy calls "Petsmart"! There were so many nice people and doggies! I met a little puppy named Daisy and we played with each other! We didn't want to stop playing but our Mommies made us go! Mommy bought me some treats and squeaky sock monkey and I got petted by lots of people and even some puppy humans! We came home and I played with my big furblings some more. Then Mommy took me inside and gave me a bath (I LIKE baths) with my new puppy shampoo! After my bath, mommy wrapped me up in a towel and we cuddled for a long time. Now I am one pooped puppy and I'm asleep in my crate. It's been such a fun day!
