Bio: My name is Allie, and I just arrived at CBR-East! My foster mom says I am very special because I have helped out a lot of people. I am a retired research beagle (that just means I was used in biomedical research), and now I have been given the chance to be adopted as a pet and learn what life outside of a laboratory is really like! I actually was not supposed to survive my experiments, but guess what? I DID, and now I want to find a loving home! You can learn more about me as I begin to settle into my foster home.
The only thing I can tell you for sure right now is that I only have 1 kidney. (I was used to help in kidney transplant research! Wow!) Just like people, I am expected to live a normal and healthy life with just one kidney, so I hope this makes me even more special in your eyes! I also have what can be considered a "non-functional" left jugular vein. This just means that my new vet won't be able to draw blood from it, but other than that, I am ready to go! :) I don't need special medications or food or anything - just a loving home to show me what life as a loving housepet can be!
More will be posted as I settle into my foster home!
