I miss her a lot, but Paws Place said that another family is going to come and take me home. I sure hope they’re right. I’m a little nervous at the kennel, but I’m really a very sweet and loving dog. I like people a lot, and I love to get visitors. Sometimes they even take me on a walk! I like to get my beagle nose sniffing, you know? Anyway, I hope someone will come take a chance on a sweet boy like me.

If you’re in the market for a big, goofy, loveable girl to share your life with, look no further. I just can’t wait to find myself a forever home. I love cuddling and I love to be around people.
