Millie is a gentle, laid back, ol' Beagle girl that weighs 25 pounds and we estimate her to be about 8 years old and very wise.   Though she isn't one to sit in your lap for long periods of time she will let you rub on her as long as you'd like to sit and pet her.  Obviously we can tell she was never pampered or loved on gently by her owner.  Seems that her owner moved out of town and left behind 6 beagles with no food or water.  They were in a very sad shelter that never has visitors and their days were down to the last two of life.   Critter Cavalry Rescue did just that…rescued them from death and a life lived in desperation and uncertainty.  Now we can promise them a loving future and Beagle loving home.  This girl named Millie, gets along well with all the other dogs but if she thinks there will only be one bowl of food put out she will be grumpy over that bowl. If several bowls of food are put out at one time she does fine. Of course we understand why she is that way too!  She doesn't seem to ever meet a stranger and even does very well around the foster’s grandchildren. She is not a barker. She does very well in the fenced yard and she will dig out a small cool spot so she can lay in it. Millie has never had a bathroom accident in the house. She does well in a kennel but she is so calm and relaxed we don't put her in one often. For example, we put her in a kennel when we leave the house because she is 'very curious' about what is on the counters. Millie is all Beagle so when she catches a scent she will follow it if she can. She is learning quickly what the word 'stay' means when we open the gate. She has slipped through the gate once or twice and gone 'rabbit hunting' but she did come back later. So care must be taken when a door is opened, etc., so she doesn't slip out. I try to keep her inside as much as possible where it is cool. She loves to go up under the computer table and nap. She is such an easy going girl sometimes she can get lost in the crowd of foster dogs but one on one time with her is always sweet and rewarding.

About Critter Companion Rescue- DC

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of dedicated rescue people who want to save as many dogs and cats from the local shelters before they are euthanized. On the average....there are only 1 out of 10 animals that get adopted from a shelter. We are dedicated to helping increase pet adoptions by offering a shelter animal a foster home to go to while awaiting an adoptive family to find them on our Petfinder website. Won't you please adopt a shelter animal? Or won't you please help us foster a shelter animal while we are looking for their perfect home? What a gift you can give a dog or cat by giving them a place to feel safe and secure....a forever home or a foster home. Won't you help us at Critter Companion Rescue give them a chance to have a life?
