Rescue

Last year on August 20, I opened our front door to leave for work and found an older, sickly looking beagle standing on the porch.  Someone was walking by with their dog and she ran out to them.  This person didn't recognize her and we both thought she looked very ill.  I decided to take her to the vet.  It was very hot and I knew she wouldn't make it if left out in the heat for several more days.  They took her in at the vet and ran several tests on her.  She was heartworm positive, had a hernia, never been fixed, and at least 7 years old.  After MUCH discussion, Keith and I decided to try to get her back in good health.  Our vet said there was no guarantee she would make it.  Oh, she was 12 pounds that day.  We decided to call her Annie!  Mama and Daddy's anniversary is on the 21st, so I thought it was appropriate.
 




And now, one year later, she is doing GREAT!  We've had a tough year with her.  Trying to house break her, several incidents with her stomach resulting in a late night trip to the MSU vet clinic, teaching her not to jump, walking on leash, and not eating EVERYTHING that she sees.  It has been hard, but I have to admit she is a sweet, sweet dog.  She now weighs 25 pounds, has lots of energy, and does her best to keep up with Gracie.  I'm not sure Gracie loves her yet, but they manage.  It's a good feeling to know we saved her.  :)

Outstanding story! I am not necessarily a beagle person, but those pictures sure are adorable. Always heartwarming to read a tale and happy ending of a rescue (especially dogs!). (I just stumbled in here from hitting the [next Blog] button.) ;)

Also a stumbler here. I love your story. We have a beagle mix that we adopted from a rescue group. You did a wonderful thing and I am sure the love you get in return makes it all worth it.

It is always good to find a stray dog cat turning up at your doorstep. I had one dog which took shelter from the rain and stayed with us for some 12 years before dying. He was big and I miss him very much. Cats turn up like clockwork but they seem to stay only for a few months and then they disappear. But during the time they are there they are fun.

Thank you for rescuing an animal that needed love. All of mine have been rescues, and there is NOTHING better than the loving, trusting look you get after they've learned that no, people aren't all evil and that there can be love.
