Lizzie's Story...
Lizzie, approximately 1 y/o Beagle/pointer/JRT mix, was found by a southern rescuer late one February evening when she and her friend, a 16 w/o Auzzie mix, were running along side a busy highway. The temperatures had been dipping into the single digits and were predicted to be 7 degrees that night. Lizzie was especially thin with ribs and pelvic bones exposed. She had obviously just had a litter of pups, although no sign of suckling. The rescuer looked for the pups, but they could not be found, and Lizzie did not lead the way to find them. With darkness approaching, the rescuer had to make the hard decision to save the two friendly buddies rather than leave them to face the single digit temperatures southerners and southern dogs are not accustomed to and hopefully return to her pups. Lizzie just did not have enough meat on her own bones to protect her from the bitter cold and icy rain.

The girls were so friendly and hungry that it was not difficult to coax both into the car. Off to the vet before closing time they went with their rescuer. Their vet thought Lizzies pups likely froze to death not long after birth, but that didnt stop their rescue angel from looking time and time again. Still no sign of pups.

Lizzies friend recently was adopted in Maine and is enjoying frolicking in the snow, but Lizzie had to stay behind to complete vetting. She is now UTD on all vaccinations, is spayed, microchipped and registered, heartworm NEGATIVE, and sooo ready for her furever home. She has been a foster of her rescue angel, who reports that Lizzie is housetrained and crate-trained. She sleeps soundly all night without soiling her crate. She is still learning not to pull on leash. Lizzie is a young, energetic girl, still a puppy herself in many ways. She loves her life now and wonders why she had to wait a year to experience human kindness and belly rubs. She is very affectionate and lives in harmony with a young foster brother, a lab/golden mix, and her rescuers personal rescue, a 7 y/o Rottie girl. Her favorite game is sock tug-of-war with her foster friends, all much larger than Lizzie, but she can hold her on in tug-of-war. She shows interest in the stray cats of the neighborhood, but we dont know if she just wants to play. The sad part is that her rescue angel must leave Lizzie crated for 10 hours each weekday while she teaches an hour away in Memphis to earn the money to care for Lizzie and soooo many others. Some days Lizzie can hold it while crated, but other days she just cant. She is very excited when her Auntie Di comes home in the afternoons, takes her for a walk, and plays with her.

Lizzie would love a home where someone is home most of the day to take her on long walks and hikes, so that she can sniff everything good life now offers her. Ideally, she would love a buddy too, large or small, but would be content to be an only dog with a human companion at home. She has the patience of Job with other dogs who may tend to be a bit too energetic. She was so motherly and patient with her 3 month old friend Macie, letting her snuggle for naps and sleeping at night. No small children just yet is probably best, since Lizzie is still a pup herself and loves to run and jump and could knock down a toddler. There is not a mean bone in her little 30-pound body though. She is not a nipper but will chew socks and shoes, so you may wish to hide those Donald Pliners! J. Shes just a very sweet, happy, fun-loving, cutie pie who enjoys being loved. Lizzie would be especially grateful if you could open your heart and home to her, while her Auntie Di will miss her terribly!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lizzie, a kennebunkport Beagle/Pointer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Beagle/Pointer for sale in kennebunkport, or seeking a Beagle/Pointer dog from a breeder in kennebunkport.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in kennebunkport 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 kennebunkport 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 Beagle/Pointer breeders who help with Beagle/Pointer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in kennebunkport paves the way for another one to be saved.
