Sophie came to our house as a foster dog. She was with
us just a little more than a week before we knew she
was meant to stay. Our then 10-year-old beagle, who we
had had since a puppy, likes other dogs but never
seemed to really bond with any of them. But he took to
Sophie almost immediately, letting her snuggle with
him on the couch. This is NOT something he does not do
with other dogs, and we were shocked to see it happen
not once, but several times over multiple days. Just
as Tobey seemed to accept Sophie as his companion, she
quickly made her way into the rest of our hearts.
Over the past six months, Sophie has gone from a dog
who was so nervous around new people that she spent
two days watching us from a safe distance, tail tucked
down, to loving family member. She greets us with a
toy and not just a tail wag, but an entire wagging
body, whether we’ve been gone for 5 minutes or 5
hours. She approaches strangers who come into her home
not with fear, but with hope that she’ll receive pets
and treats. When Sophie first came to our house, she
wouldn't go outside unless someone went with her and
stood outside with her. Now, she loves exploring her
yard for new and familiar scents and will ask to be
let out just to run around the yard, head down,
sniffing away. She gets VERY excited when it’s time to
head out for a morning run. And when it’s time to slow
down for the night, she loves to snuggle under the
covers with her people. Sophie has learned to play
with toys and with her beagle brother, to sit and wait
patiently for her meals, and comes in from the yard
when she’s called. She’s a smart girl who loves to be
rewarded with treats and kind words.
Sophie brings us so much joy and makes us smile every
day with her sweet, loving personality and her joyful
exuberance. It warms our hearts that she’s learned to
trust us and grown to love us. We’re so grateful that
we had an opportunity to bring this sweet girl into
our family. We love her so much. Thank you Seattle
Beagle Rescue for rescuing Sophie and helping her get
to us and her forever home.
I just wanted to thank you
all for providing the funds
for Sadie's second surgery.
She truly has a new lease on
life! I used to carry her home
from short walks and now, only
two and a half weeks post-op,
she runs home. I have to
hold her back to keep her to
the prescribed exercise
routine. She was certainly
suffering a lot before and had
more restricted movement than
I realized. Now, she
seems to have wings!
Thank you so much,
doing great he has grown into such a wonder dog.
His puppy years were eventful he was quite the
rascal but as time has gone by he has settled down and
is such a good boy. We enjoy him so much and he
just loves Roy and visa versa. I have had him in
training but decided to take the summer off from it so
we could just enjoy the summer. His last course was a
nose work class he loved it and is really good at it.
I tell him to go search for a specific toy and he is
so smart he does finds it and. Rings it right to me.
We will pick up again in the fall as it keeps he brain
working and we both enjoy it.
Thank you for enhancing our live with this beautiful boy.
