Cricket is a beautiful little 1-2 year-old Beagle who was one of 19 Beagles kept as hunting dogs on a farm in KY. The owner recently contacted a local rescue for help as he could no longer care for them. That rescue reached out to us along with several others and all the dogs were able to move off the property into better lives. Four of them, including Cricket, came to Canine Lifeline. In spite of living outdoors and having limited contact with people, this is one very friendly little dog. She loves everyone she meets including other dogs and is just as kind and gentle as can be. She has done well with crate-training in her foster home and will need to continue that in her adoptive home as she works on her housetraining skills. Cricket is embracing the comforts of indoor life and enjoys curling up on her cozy bed for a nap after playtime is over. She will need a home with a yard that has a secure aboveground fence to keep her safe at home. Walking on a leash is still a new experience for Cricket but she is eager to learn lots of new things in her new home and leash walking is one of them. Since she and her buddies lived in the country, surburban living will continue to be a learning curve for her as she gets comfortable with the sights and sounds of a more populated area. Cricket would love a home in a quiet neighborhood so she can really relax and enjoy her life. We can’t wait to see this little girl blossom in her new home as a treasured member of her new family. Cricket weighs about 14 pounds and her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Cricket. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under the age of 7 years. We correspond via email so please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
