Tessa's Story...
Hey y’all!!! I’m Tessa and I am from Tennessee. I came in to the shelter as a stray and no one came to look for me. BUT, now I am with a foster mom and we get along great! She has other dogs and they are great (she has a bunch of them and my math is not great but I think there are 4 – but others come visit so I get confused). I like them all and they don’t seem to mind me too much. I get excited because, well, I am a puppy and they get grumpy but I just walk away.
I am about 12 weeks old (again that math stuff throws me). I am working on something that my foster mom calls “peepee poop”. I don’t know what it is but she takes me outside and says “peepee poop” and I roam around until I feel better and she says “GOOD GIRL” and we go back inside. She’s kind of weird.
I sleep with my foster mom and my foster dad. I really like to sleep. I go to bed with my foster mom and then my foster dad wakes me up around 5:00 when he gets up for some place called “work” and he does the whole “peepee poop” scenario and I get back in bed.
I enjoy toys. I really love bones!!! Bones are the bomb! I try to grab a sock every now and then but they get taken away.
I’m a really good girl. I LOVE being loved and I love being near people or in a lap. I don’t know what “breed” I am. The vet says a mixed up one so I’ll go with that. Right now I weigh about 6 pounds now (I look bigger in pictures!). I don’t plan on getting too big because I want to always be a good lap sitting size.
Tessa has been Spayed and she is up to date on all of her vaccinations. She is heartworm negative and currently on a heart worm and flea preventative.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tessa, a Washington Collie/Beagle puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie/Beagle for sale in Washington, or seeking a Collie/Beagle puppy from a breeder in Washington.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Washington already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Washington breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Collie/Beagle breeders who help with Collie/Beagle rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Washington paves the way for another one to be saved.
