Meet Karma
Status: Fostered
Estimated Age: 2-3 Years

Estimated Weight:  25 Pounds

UPDATE – 28 FEBRUARY 2021 (from foster mom): This sweet girl is all good karma. She is a leggy beagle mix who is all heart. Karma loves everyone: adults, kids, other dogs and pretty much everything; walks, playing with her toys, running in the dog park, and of course, meal time. The one thing she loves less than everything else is her crate. She goes right in at meal time but registers her discontent with being parted from her people at nighttime. Luckily, after a minute or two, she settles.

Karma has had a busy week. It took her a few days to settle into our home. As she has gotten used to our routine, she is learning the joys of chilling out. She learned how to: negotiate stairs, use the doggie door, stay off the furniture and what dogs toys are all about (joy!). She is making great strides in house breaking and doing her business on a leash. We continue to watch her carefully and take her out often. On a walk, Karma is eager to greet people and dogs, curious about new places and is making progress on not pulling. She has a sweet beagle temperament but is not generally as scent driven as most beagles. I even took her for a run, which she loved.

She gets along well with other dogs, is eager to play and takes it well when other dogs aren’t interested. She is not possessive of her toys when other dogs are around. She is very curious and likes to rearrange things she finds. She is not generally destructive.

Karma is a wonderful dog who would do well in any home setting. She is still youthful and will need regular exercise. But most of all, she just wants to love and be loved.

UPDATE – 20 FEBRUARY 2021: Karma is now in a foster home, so stay tuned as we see how this pretty girl does living in a house.

UPDATE – 6 FEBRUARY 2021: Karma is now fully vetted and available for fostering or adoption.

NEW – 25 JANUARY 2021: Karma is a 2-3-year-old beagle girl who weighs around 25 pounds. She’s a lanky girl who could use a couple more pounds. She is super sweet and friendly and good with other dogs. She was a stray at the Louisa County Animal Shelter in Virginia, so her history is unknown. 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.
