Sweetie and her mother were found roaming the neighborhood of her rescuers in October, 2008. They were dirty, very hungry and had collars with no tags that were so tight ulcers had formed under them. They cowered whenever they were approached. After some kind words Sweetie’s rescuers finally coaxed them into the house, bathed and fed them, and took them to the vet. They were heartworm positive, Sweetie in the severe infestation range. They were both treated and given their shots. They have been on heartworm maintenance medication since. Sweetie’s foster home already has other animals in the house and outside, so the best thing to do is to find a loving, forever home for these two little beagle girls. They would make wonderful pets for a loving family.
Sweetie needs a home with loving people to care for her. She loves to cuddle and gives sweet kisses. She loves to turn over to get her tummy rubbed. She likes to go outside to play and inside to nap and sleep. She likes meat once daily and dry food out all the time. Treats are a highlight.
Sweetie loves to play with stuffed toys. She also loves to play with a male Miniature Schnauzer who lives in her foster home. They romp and wrestle for long periods of time. She is a little bigger than he is, but she is careful not to hurt him.
Sweetie has been treated for severe heartworm infestation and is now negative. She has been on maintenance meds since treatment. She has allergies and gets an antihistamine once or twice a day in a piece of cheese. Otherwise, she is in excellent health. She is a beautiful beagle.
Sweetie and her mother would like to be adopted together if possible.
Sweetie is an independent rescue supported by DogsOnly, so she will not be available to meet every Saturday except for holiday weekends at the DogsOnly adoption showing at Petco on Chenal Parkway across from Target and Home Depot (click here for directions). However you can contact Sweetie ’s rescuer and foster directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or send an email to DogsOnly at email@example.com. You are also encouraged to submit an online adoption application by clicking the orange colored links at the top or bottom of this page. Your adoption application will be forwarded to Sweetie ’s foster family.
We always try and answer all emails within 24 hours. All of our young and adult dogs require a 2 week home visit before finalizing the adoption process. This is to help ensure it is a good match for all involved without making a final commitment. All of our rescues are in private homes and not available to be visited outside of showing times.
All DogsOnly foster homes work with our rescues to ensure they are crate trained and most are also housetrained. None of the DogsOnly fosters have cats in their homes so we can only make our best guess as to how our rescues would do with cats. We rescue from high kill shelters and once accepted into our program, none of our rescues are euthanized. We provide for all their vet care, socialization and training until an appropriate home can be found.
DogsOnly relies solely on donations and is a 501(c)3 Humane Society. Our mission is to rescue dogs that most other groups are not interested in due to their size, breed, age, health or other various reasons, and to provide education resources for dog owners and those with an interest in the wellbeing of dogs. DogsOnly believes that no dog should be left behind.
