This little sad-sack is Drake, a 2.5 year-old Beagle boy, who sure knows how to tug at your heartstrings. This little guy found himself homeless at an overcrowded rural county dog shelter and made the trip to Canine Lifeline so he could relax in a foster home while searching for a permanent new home. We don’t know whether he was an owner surrender or a stray but this little guy is extremely shy with people at first. He acts like he’s surprised that humans want to be nice to him. There is truly not a mean bone in his body but it will take Drake some time to warm up to new people. He really comes to life and becomes more animated and comfortable when he’s around other dogs so he will definitely need a home where he’ll have a canine buddy to boost his confidence and show him the ropes in his new environment. Drake will walk on a leash but that’s been a new experience for him. With daily practice in his new home and walking with a canine pal, Drake will soon understand how much fun it is to explore all the scents in his new neighborhood at the end of a leash. He has done well with crate-training in his foster home and will need to continue that in his new home. Drake will need a home with a yard that has a secure aboveground fence to keep him safe at home. If you’ve got the love and time to spend giving a needy little guy a fabulous new life, Drake would love to meet you! Drake weighs about 20 pounds currently but is very thin and working on gaining about 5 pounds to be at his ideal weight. His adoption fee is $325. Drake is neutered, 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.
