UPDATE - 4 SEPTEMBER 2023: We were able to have Buttercup's heart situation evaluated. Here is an update on this beagle girl from our kennel manager, who is now fostering her:
Buttercup is a liver tri-color beagle girl who was born with a heart defect - Pulmonic Valve Stenosis. The right side of her heart did not form properly, so it doesn’t open fully. It is mild to very low moderate; however, her heart is functioning normally. She doesn’t need any medications but should have her heart monitored over time. She is able to be a puppy with no activity restrictions. She is used to a crate but does have pee accidents in the crate, so a pee pad is recommended. She has an occasional pee accident in the house but has never had any poop accidents. She’s a happy beagle girl who bounces around like a little bunny. She is super sweet and good with other dogs. She is currently fostered but could use a foster home where she is not crated for long hours to see if her crate training improves.
UPDATE - 9 MAY 2023: We discovered Buttercup has a heart murmur that needs further evaluation. She will be available once she has been cleared by a cardiologist.
NEW - 20 APRIL 2023: Buttercup is young liver-color beagle girl who was an owner surrender because they could not care for her. She was constantly attacked by the other residents dogs but still seems to be good with other dogs. She was originally a pet for the grandkids, so she has had some socializing. She was not kept in the house, so she will need house training. She will be available soon.
Q: Can you tell me more about a specific dog? Is s/he good with kids / housetrained / good with cats/ etc?
A: What we know is in the write up. Our knowledge about any dog that is not in a foster homes is limited. Once approved, our adoption coordinators will work with you to match you with the right dog.
Q: Can I meet a specific dog?
A: We’re sorry, but you must be an approved adopter to meet our dogs. Pre-pandemic, dogs could be met at adoption days, but you still had to be approved to adopt from an adoption day.
Q: How can I adopt a specific dog?
A: You must submit an adoption application and be approved to adopt. You can do that under Adopt – you can also learn about the adoption process there.. It will take about two weeks for an adoption coordinator to get in touch with you. Please keep in mind that dogs that are available now may be adopted in the meantime. But we are always getting new dogs. You can see them on our website.
Q: Can I add another dog to the list on my application?
A: We don’t hold you to the dogs you listed on your application. It gives us an idea of what you are looking for. Plus it will let us know if someone is interested in one of our special needs / hard to place dogs.
Q: I indicated that I was interested in a specific dog on my application, but I see that s/he has been adopted. What happened?
A: We do not hold dogs. Applicants in the queue before you are being approved and may adopt the dog you are interested in before you are approved. But we are always getting new dogs in and your adoption coordinator will help you find the perfect match.
