She’s a “nose-to-the-ground” kind of canine that holds a sweet disposition and a happy temperament for everyone she sees.
She’s definitely not a dog you can carry around in your satchel or purse. She doesn’t necessarily need weekly grooming appointments, but she probably wouldn’t mind getting her toenails painted.
She’s never considered herself a “foofoo” dog, yet she might insist on riding in the back seat of the car with her head out the window and her ears blowing in the wind so she can enjoy every smell she can pick up.
Who is this wonderful 6-year-old creature that’s good with other dogs and people? Her name is Lotte and she’s all Beagle!
Lotte was owner-surrendered due to a difficult situation at home, but nothing seems to have phased her. Greeting each visitor with a cock of her head and the always searching eyes, Lotte will make a wonderful new family member if for nothing else than she is so doggone cute.
Congratulations to Kyle, our goofy yellow retriever, for finding the perfect Labrador home with built-in Lab siblings. We wish you all the open fields, streams and love you can handle, Kyle
They weren’t up for adoption for very long before they found their forever families, but we wanted to give a big shout out of congratulations to both Layla, a little Yorkshire terrier, and Timmy, a tiny little Chihuahua.
The small dogs win the day!
