I've found my furever family!

Hi! My Name Is Birdie

We're happy to tell you that Birdie has a new furever home.
Please visit our Available Dogs Page to see the pups currently available.

Birdie joined Seattle Beagle Rescue from a New Mexico shelter without much information with the exception of her being timid initially and that she was a beagle mix. Upon arrival, it was clear Birdie wasn't a beagle or beagle mix and she wasn't just shy, but terrified of people. Her anxiety was so severe, she was prescribed Prozac and Trazadone to lessen her extreme anxiety. Birdie and her fosters were set her up with a trainer to help her with her anxiety about people and she is making wonderful progress, but at a slower pace.  She has progressed to do Zoomies by herself in the backyard, take a treat from a very still hand and roll on the carpet with the other dogs. She has long legs and will jump high to chase the squirrels, but people remained a fear. Birdie will need a securely fenced yard, a very quiet and calm household so no young children. She will require another dog in the home to continue to help her adjust and learn to trust her family. The ideal home needs to understand that Birdie is going to take longer than the average few days to come out of her shell. She will likely needs weeks to a few months so any adopter needs to be patience and understanding as well as commit to continuing her training to help build confidence and trust. Birdie needs to work on not being afraid of leash and harness, but if you are looking for a sweet girl that will become the sweetest dog with your help, please submit an application. While Birdie works on the few remaining tasks, your application can get started in the process.
