About Me

Meet Casper
Status: Fostered
Estimated Age: 3 Years

Estimated Weight:  28 Pounds

UPDATE – 27 FEBRUARY 2021 (from foster mom): Casper has been in his foster home for about a week and is doing well! He is super friendly and loves everyone he meets. He gets along with other dogs (and he is living with a bunch!). Casper tends to be on the submissive side and is eager to please. He’s starting to come out of his shell and show his super sweet personality. I believe he lived outside in a kennel, but he is doing well with housetraining using a doggie door. He does well in a crate, but it takes him 10 minutes to settle in because he wants to be with his humans. He has a soulful howl that is adorable and makes it difficult to resist the urge to give in to his wishes. Casper does well on a leash – gets mesmerized by the big amazing world outside.

UPDATE – 21 FEBRUARY 2021: Casper is now in a foster home, so let’s see how he does living in house (with lots of other beagles!).

UPDATE – 15 FEBRUARY 2021: Casper is now fully vetted and available for fostering or adoption.

NEW – 28 DECEMBER 2020: This beautiful boy is Casper. Check out the spots on his ears! He is a 2-3 year-old beagle mix who is slightly larger than your average beagle. He is friendly but submissive. He does well with other dogs. He and Taaliya were both given up by an owner to the Amelia County Animal Shelter in Virginia because the owner had “too many dogs.” We don’t know much else about him. Casper still needs to be seen by our vet, but he 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.
