She is not all beagle - she has super long legs and runs gracefully. She is also lean, but it looks good on her. She is a joy to watch when she is running in circles in the backyard and is full of joy. She has shorter ears and a longer nose and has a super short tail. Our vet cannot tell if she was born this way or if it was removed surgically.
Sarah is going to need a super patient family with experience with fearful dogs. She seems more afraid of men and has a scary bark when she feels threatened. She is afraid of all new things so it takes time to get a harness on her to walk her or put her in the car, but once she is outside, she LOVES to walk and can walk for at least a mile. We double leash her with a harness just to be safe, but she doesn’t seem to mind. At her first adoption event, she spent most of her time in a corner or a crate, but she ventured out within a few hours and rapidly located the kind lady with treats. She is also spending more time in the dining room in a doggie bed where she can be near the humans.
Note from foster home: Sarah is a fantastic sweet dog, but she is going to need lots of patience and love to recover from her rough beginning. She will be worth it though!
