I am vet student at NCSU and during our second year we have a surgery class in which we spay/neuter animals from local shelters. If we do not take the initiative to find a good adoptive home or rescue to take our dogs, they are sent back to the shelter, where they are typically euthanized (we take from a very high kill shelter). My surgery dog this week is a friendly Beagle puppy who is simply adorable!
The dog is about 5-7 months old and he has a superb personality!! I will be neutering him today and he will get all of his vaccinations after the surgery (he has also been de-wormed). He is heartworm negative and aside from the typically kennel sniffles, he is healthy. He walks nicely on the leash and interacts well with both people and other dogs. I have also tested him with a kitty and he acted sweetly towards her - no desire to bite or chase. He is too great of a dog to go back to the shelter and I would appreciate any help that you could give me!
The dogs go back to the shelter on Saturday morning. I can send you pictures by this evening if you would like - I would take him with me, but as a vet student I am gone from my apartment for 12+ every day and it would not be fair to him.
This friendly Beagle is located in Raleigh, NC and I could keep him for the weekend if someone wants to adopt/foster him and we need to organize transport. Feel free to e-mail me at [email protected]
