    Adopt Roadrunner: An Outgoing Beagle

    September 23, 2014 at 11:57 am

    Roadrunner was named because the funny crook in his tail makes him resemble a certain cartoon bird, but it might as well have been because of his unflagging energy. This not-quite-two-year-old beagle is very active and very friendly, and he takes to new people right away. That would make him an ideal fit for a […]

    Adopt Turtle: An Irrepressible Spirit

    August 26, 2014 at 11:36 am

    Turtle‘s had a hard life – she was mistreated and confined by her original owner. But that hasn’t dampened her spirit one bit. No, this dog is about the most loving companion you could hope for. She’s still only four years old, and though she has the adorably floppy ears of a coonhound, her short […]
