Meet Juice! This sweet loving boy has so much personality. True to the beagle ways he seems to love everyone. He lived outside with MANY other "hunting" dogs so he does well with other dogs. Although may do better with females. Juice has puppy like energy and will need all the training. We are currently working on teaching him "Sit" while he is here with us. If you love beagles as much as we do stop on by and ask to see him. :)

Story
Meet Moxie, There isn't much to tell about this young lady because she is just a darling with everyone she meets. She likes to match her energy level to her person and will stick to them like glue! She will be successful in almost any home, but we feel that she might be happier with someone who is home most of the time or who is willing to work on crate training with her to prevent separation anxiety. Moxie will need to be in a home where she is the only dog. She has done well living with kitties in her previous home!Moxie is will need to stay on medications to help with her skin allergies and anxiety so she will need a good relationship with the vet!If you would like to meet this little tail-wagger, just stop by!

Story
Meet Kirby!She might not be a pink round hero, nor fighting to save her home, but she's a hero to us! She's a big goofy, sweet, loveable girl who loves nothing more than food, walks, and socializing with her people! She can be a bit timid meeting new people at first, but warms up rather quickly when you offer butt scratches! Thing is, this almost 80lb girl doesn't know her size! She's working on four on the floor, and learning that not everyone may appreciate her hugs. Kirby is only a year old, and needs to work on some basic manners. She does get overstimulated easily and turns to puppy mouthy behaviors, nibbling on fingers. Due to this, a home without young children we think would be best.Now, "What about other animals?" You see, Kirby needs some help learning other dogs aren't scary. They can make her nervous, yes, even with how big she is; her motto is "I'm just a baby"! We are saying she would do best as an only dog, although with more training, she may enjoy calm dog friends! Kirby would love her home to be free of felines though; they are way too fun to chase!Interested in meeting this sweet girl? Swing on down to KVHS with the whole family!
