Meet Scooter Joe! He’s a happy Beagle boy who found himself and his five Beagle friends in a rural Tennessee kill shelter with only a day or two left to live. Fortunately for Scooter Joe and his pals, Critter Cavalry came to the rescue and got all six Beagles into foster homes, vetted and ready for the next stage of their lives. Scooter Joe is a handsome, 2 year old boy, weighing in at about 20 lbs. He could stand to put on a few more pounds to reach his ideal weight. Scooter Joe has likely been an outside dog for most of his life and is very inquisitive about all the new things he is finding in his foster home. He is a careful boy when he is inside, but he loves to run and jump when he has the chance to be set free in a fenced yard. Scooter Joe is respectful of the dogs with seniority at his foster home, and he is just beginning to get comfortable enough to invite another pup to play with him by giving a playful pounce in front of it. Although he is a little shy at first, Scooter Joe enjoys attention from the humans in his family and is very good when they put ear medicine in his ears that were infected when he was picked up from the shelter. A few more days of cleaning and medicine and his hair on his ears will begin to grow in after having scratched them raw. Scooter Joe has been neutered, microchipped, vetted and is current on his shots and is waiting patiently to begin the next, much happier chapter in his young life with a kind human or family to help him along the way.
