Arrival Story: All of our beagles have not had the greatest start to their lives...but little Dexter ended himself up in a shelter at just 3 months of age. He came into the shelter with a neck wound which, a little more than a month later, looks like this:
Let's not think about what it looked like at the time he was found. He was brought into the County veterinarian's office in Indiana where he was treated, and then ended up in the local shelter. The shelter contacted CBR-East and we were able to bring this little puppy OUT of the shelter and into a loving foster home where he belongs. Despite living with "people" who decided his place was to be outside tied up so that collars and leashes are so tight that they cut his neck, Dexter is a LOVING little puppy. He is learning what it is like to play with his beagle foster brothers and sisters, play with squeaky toys, have plenty of food and water, live in a warm home, and sleep in a bed cuddled up in loving arms. He is now wearing a harness to allow his neck to heal. Dexter is a typical pup - energetic, playful, and as cuddly as you can imagine. He is learning to be housetrained and cratetrained. He is still losing his puppy teeth and is a typical "nippy" puppy, so we would prefer he NOT go to a home with very young children whom he could accidentally hurt. We would like Dexter to go to a home where he can get a lot of attention, so he will not be adopted to a home where he will be home alone for 8-10 hours a day. He needs frequent socialization opportunities and to learn that his first negative encounters with people are not representative of us all. Do you have the time, patience and love to devote to a young beagle pup? If so, please submit an application and ask for Dexter.
