Quick Bio:

Birthday:
April 18th 2003

Likes:
She likes to covet her toys, sit with my husband, snuggle between our legs in bed, sit in front of the electric heater and go outside alone to do her business (long story).

Pet-Peeves:
She dislikes being told NO, being woken up or moved, going potty outside in the rain and having her favorite toys taken away from her.

Favorite Toy:
She likes any soft, stuffed animal with a squeaky toy inside of it; once she finds a toy that she likes, she carries it around the house, licks it and does not share it with the other doggies.

Favorite Food:
She likes her doggie treats and carrots.

Favorite Walk:
She likes to walk around the block.

Best Tricks:
She knows how to fetch her toy and she also knows how to growl on command! (All we have to say is: Give me a hug!)

Arrival Story:
With 2 beagles in the house already, we felt that we still had room in our hearts and home for another doggie. One day in January 2004, we stopped at our local Petsmart to visit with the beagles of Penny Angels Beagle Rescue (PABR) that were available for adoption. We met this cute & tiny lemon beagle named Gracie who had just been surrendered to Beagle Rescue. She knew that we were looking to adopt, because she put on her charm and jumped right in my husband's lap. She was a spunky little thing and her bark reminded us of Dino the dinosaur. We knew about her family history, but still could not understand how this little girl could be such a big problem. After spending some time with her at the store, we decided to foster her and then adopted her. We have seen first hand why she could not live in a home with children; she does have aggressive tendencies, and will bite if pushed too far. Despite her issues, we love her anyway and are so happy that she became our 3rd adopted beagle!

Bio:
I used to live in a home with small children. I did not like it when the kids got too close to me, so I growled at them to try to get them to leave me alone. But they did not leave me alone and unfortunately, I bit them a few times. My owner did not like my attitude, so she sent me to a trainer for about 8 weeks. The methods that the trainer used to try to teach me to be nice to the kids did not work too well. He even put a choke collar on me to get me under control! When I went back home to my family, they saw that I still had many issues, so they felt that it would be best for me to find another home. My owner surrendered me to PABR, but that very same day, I found another family in a home without kids. I thought I was in heaven! I got along well with the 2 other beagles in the house, and was lucky to be adopted by the family on 1-24-04!
