I was having lots of fun running on the acreage of my former home. But my owners didn’t like me roaming far and wide, so they chained me to a dog house outside and it wasn’t fun at all. Lucky for me that some kind people took notice and convinced my owners to give me up so some new family could take me home and let me be a real pet instead of a farm animal.

I’ve come a long way since this giant change of scenery. I was so nervous about being kenneled and surrounded by other dogs, but I’ve gotten used to it and I barely take notice of them when it’s my turn to go out for a walk.

You should see how fast I’ll sit for treats and it only takes the gentlest touch to get me to melt into your lap and tempt you to give me a belly rub. I adore people and getting attention. I’ve been starved for it so I’m putty in almost anyone’s hands. Several calm kids have visited with me. The younger noisy ones scare me a little, so I prefer the older ones.
Visiting with the cats did not get me agitated or aggressive. I’m more curious about them than anything else. As far as other dogs go, I have a definite preference for the girls.

I know that it’s hard to believe, because I lived outdoors, but the volunteers believe I’m housebroken. I might have an initial “accident” in new surroundings, but I’m sure to learn to “take it outside” in no time. I just need someone to give me a chance.

I am a handsome, 6-year-old Lab mix with a sparkling personality and ready smile. A new home would certainly make me smile.

They say “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” That is so true when it comes to choosing a dog from a shelter. I can’t help it if I look formidable. I didn’t get to choose my color or coat, size or frame. To make matters worse, someone cut off my ears which makes me look even scarier to some people. But all that is visible on my exterior can’t hide the incredibly sweet, affable, calm and easy-to-walk dog that I am. Volunteers and visitors have been swooning over my pleasant, affectionate nature and spend lots of time with me because they know they need to step up for me since I’m not a little lapdog.

My background is unknown, but it’s obvious I had many litters before I got here. Now it’s my turn to be pampered and loved. It should be pretty easy to integrate me into a home as I am not desperate for tons of exercise and I will not pull your arm off when we walk together. I would love to meet you and show you who I am on the inside.

As one who has been abandoned, I have developed some trust issues. I was about 9 months old when I arrived at the shelter after my owner left me with a friend and never returned. My life, though short, has not been filled with the usual training, exercise, and love that most “dog people” think about and provide when they look for a new companion.

The volunteers were surprised by my outbursts at them when they stood at my kennel. They learned to take it slow and once I got to know each of them, I was the adorable angelic girl they all saw deep within me.
I have not been properly introduced to many new things and am easily spooked, but one by one I am learning all about the many things and people around and am getting better every day.

My bald little butt, due to flea dermatitis, is now covered with a velvety black coat. My petite square face is irresistible when I lock eyes with people and I sit at the speed of light when offered a treat. I may not be the perfect dog for everyone, but for people who are willing to take the time to get to know me, I’m as lovable and darling as you will find anywhere. I have played with some of the dogs here and have made many volunteers smile and laugh.

I shouldn’t be counted out for being a little older. Actually my age should work a bit more in my favor since I’m fit and active but can still chill during downtime with ease. Currently around 6 years old, I have plenty enough energy for the average person, but not so much that I would drive you nuts. I love walks in any weather, but am also very happy to just “hang” with people.

My life before was a mystery. As a coonhound mix there was probably some expectation of me hunting, but that is not what I’m all about. Sure I’ll put my nose to ground and check out the world through my nostrils like any self-respecting hound would, so it might surprise you to learn that I am a breeze to walk on leash.

Though I don’t have much training ... yet, I respond to treats which will make training easy. I’m so sweet and good-natured, I would easily integrate into any family with the youngest of kids to the oldest of seniors. I love to be handled, petted, brushed and engaged. When I hear the words, “Good girl,” when walking, my ears perk up and I turn my head. I like a lot of other dogs, but would need to be properly introduced to a cat to see if that would work.

When it’s time to “Buddy Up” I hope you think of me. Having the most popular name for a dog has gotten me nowhere so far. I was in a foster home for a few months but my foster mom worked long hours and I was alone too much. I’m very good company — social, outgoing and loyal to a fault. Some other great qualities I possess include being potty-trained and walking well on leash.

There are some dogs I like and others I tolerate but I won’t be pulling your arm out to lunge at them. I don’t care that much. I can even live peaceably with a cat if the situation calls for it. I’m very flexible! Specifically, I am your basic, mid-size, middle-age, beagle-boxer mix with a little extra padding that I’m hoping to walk off. Maybe we can do that together.
