Tashie – Adopted March 2021

Tashie – Adopted March 2021

About Me

Meet Tashie
Status: Fostered
Estimated Age: 1-2 Years
Estimated Weight: 33 Pounds

NOTE: High energy and can be noisy (not good for an apartment); needs a fenced yard. May do best in a home with a second dog who will play with her.

UPDATE – 17 FEBRUARY 2021 (from foster mom):  Tashie is a super sweet young girl who is back up for adoption. She was originally adopted in January, but she was returned to her foster home because she was too high energy and too noisy for apartment life. Tashie probably needs to be in a home with a fenced yard and another dog.

Tashie loves to be outside! When the weather was warmer, I would leave the door to the deck open and she would sit outside for hours staring into the woods and smelling the smells. She loves to play outback in the yard with her foster brothers or by herself. If her foster brothers come back inside, she will toss a toy around to herself or just sit out there chewing on a chew toy. She can be a little bit of a challenge to try to get back inside (which can be a little annoying at 4:30 in the morning in the snow!) I need to keep tasty treats at the back door to try to coax her back inside.

She can be a little bit vocal. She didn’t work out in her first home because she would whine and cry a lot. She wines some here and will sometimes bark at delivery people, dogs walking by, mail carriers, etc. When she is not outside, she likes to sit on a bench in front of the windows and watch outside. She doesn’t seem to whine as much when she is occupied with a chew toy, playing with her foster brothers or napping.

She is not food aggressive. She sits and waits patiently while I get their meals together. She starts to dance around when she knows that she is getting her bowl. She is very gentle when she takes treats.

She is very sweet and has really soft fur. She can be very goofy. She does this silly thing where she will come up to me and press her head up against me and then flop over, whether she is flopping over onto another beagle or not.

We are still working on her house training. For liking to be outside so much, she sometimes forgets to potty outside. Fortunately, most of the time her accidents are confined to a room in the basement.

Overall, she is a really sweet, super cute, taller beagle mix that would make a great pet for the right adopter.

UPDATE – 31 DECEMBER 2020: Tashie is now fully vetted and in a foster home. Stay tuned as we learn more about this young gal!

NEW – 29 NOVEMBER 2020: Tashie is 1-year-old beagle/hound mix, so she’s slightly taller than your average beagle. She’s super sweet, fairly mellow, friendly and good with other dogs. She was a stray at the 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.
