Would you like a Beagle in your family? Well if you do I am available. Sadly I lost my home when my owner had to move; he could not take me along and the care giver he found for me just couldn’t continue to provide care. I love kids and am friendly with dogs and cats. I am seven and I hate to say this out loud but I am a bit chubby. Okay I admit it so if I go home with you maybe we could take regular walks, wouldn’t that be nice. You know exercise is always more fun with a friend. I don’t think you realize how difficult it is to live at the shelter when you have experienced home and family life. Won’t someone open their home and heart, I need a family now. Hey, listen up everyone, I need a home right now because I have been at the shelter for seven months and that is a very long time. I don’t understand why I am never chosen because I have a lot to offer. I am six years old, litter trained, declawed and already neutered. I hope you are not passing me by because I am six years old, I still have many years ahead of me and I want to spend them with you. I would like to be the only cat in the home; I think I would do better that way. I am really hoping for a home for the holidays won’t you please stop by the shelter and ask to see Baby, I can’t wait to meet you!
