This weekend, we finally found "the one." She is a sixteen-pound, two-year-old, funny, silly, beautiful little beagle. We adopted her from CARE, an animal shelter in Bayonne, New Jersey, after seeing her on www.adoptapet.com.
She is the friendliest, sweetest little thing -- she wants to meet everyone she sees on the street (this makes walking her a long process), and gets along with everyone. All of our concerns about adopting an older dog were quickly laid to rest when we met her -- she never barks, is completely non-aggressive and loving, is (mostly) house-trained, and totally social. She loves to explore and is curious about every single thing she sees (it gives me new understanding of the name of Charlie Brown's beagle, "Snoopy").
She likes stuffed toys, beef snacks, long walks in the park, and being as close to her human friends as she can possibly get.
