Ripley wound up in a Oregon shelter after being picked up as a stray. He has quite a history with this shelter, they discovered, when they scanned his microchip and it linked back to them from 2009! Since that time he has changed hands 6 times. We cannot understand why anybody would not want this dog. He is sweet, gentle, quiet, mellow. With years of experience with hundreds of beagles, we have never seen a beagle more depressed than Ripley was when he arrived. He never got out of bed for two weeks, except to go out to potty. He is a few pounds overweight, but this is probably due to the fact that he was recently diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. It’s a quick fix with just a little pill. He does suffer from a limp in the right rear leg and we’re not sure why yet. His xrays show some calcification of bone but he may have a prior injury. Since being started on the medication (Thyroxine) for hypothyroidism, he is becoming a new dog! He is much, much happier, watches squirrels out the window and wags his tail. Hooray!
