Toby

Quick Facts: Breed: Beagle mix Gender: Male, Neutered Age: 7 years old Size: 40 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? Yes! Kids? Yes! Hi, my name is Toby and I am incredibly affectionate, loving and sweet-tempered! History I landed in a high-kill shelter in Kentucky. The shelter didn’t note whether I was found stray or had been surrendered, but the rescue folks are guessing that I had been lucky to have had a nice owner, but that maybe I got lost or maybe he/she died or had to go into a nursing home and there was no one to care for me. I clearly have been treated very well by humans because I LOVE humans, and I show no fears or concerns about people, dogs, or cats. I just smile and wag-wag-wag at everyone! Personality I am silly and sweet and incredibly friendly and very affectionate! I wake up every…

My name is Willis and I am the cutest, sweetest beagle who just wants to hang out with you! History I was adopted from a Cornell research dog program when I was 9 months old. My new family had a young female dog who showed me the ropes of being a family dog since I had been housed full-time in a kennel when I was in the research program. It was so fun! I learned loads of things, but maybe my favorite was finding my Beagle bark! This took months and was so delightful (to everyone) when I found it! My doggie sibling was a bit food aggressive and bossy about her space, so sometimes she would yell or growl at me, but I’m an easy going…
