If you love Beagles, you’re going to be head over heels for Sugar, a sweet and affectionate 3 year-old girl. She had the double misfortune of being homeless at a county dog shelter AND testing positive for heartworms there making it almost impossible for her to find a new home. The shelter reached out to us for help with her and sweet little Sugar made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she could get the lifesaving treatment that she needed. Sugar has been through heartworm treatment and has done very well so is now ready to find herself a great new home. This girl loves everyone and everything including all dogs and people that she meets. She did extremely well during the two months of crate rest that go with recuperation from heartworm treatment. Sugar keeps her crate spotless so should be able to pick up the housetraining routine quickly in her new home. She’s a pretty quiet girl for a Beagle and loves to spend her time relaxing and snuggling with her human friends. Now that she was be a little more active, Sugar is going to love exploring her new neighborhood with regular daily walks with her new family. Sugar weighs about 20 pounds and her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, current on monthly heartworm preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea 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 Sugar. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
