Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). NAME: Dave BREED: Beagle APPROXIMATE AGE: 5 years WEIGHT: 20lbs ADOPTION FEE: $100 Dave came to us from a crowded shelter after being found as a stray. He is completely blind; his condition is called SARDS (sudden acquired retinal degeneration), which is not painful and does not affect other areas of his overall health. Dave is a brave boy who is already adjusting well to life in his foster home. He has a lot of energy and loves to explore inside and out. He is great with other dogs and after a brief period of barking in the general direction of the cats he encountered, he is now comfortable with them too. Dave loves attention from everyone he meets; despite being blind he is very confident and is friendly with all people. He even likes to rough-house and wrestles with his foster mom. All Dave needs to be happy and feel safe is a little time to adjust and patience while he navigates his surroundings. He is house and crate trained, walks well on a leash, rides well in the car, and is a quiet boy especially considering his breed. This little fellow is going to make a sweet and fun addition to his new family!

More About Beagle Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

She is an active dog, loves everyone she meets, though she may be a little too rough with very little ones, since she's never been around them. She is wary of other dogs at first, though generally warms up with time and help from her owners. She has never been around cats or other small pets, however she chases rabbits, squirrels, and birds in the yard. Anna is crate/house trained, walks well on a leash and although she is an active pup, she will also snuggle with you anytime you let her. She loves to give kisses and lick your hands, feet, and face.

      Breed: Boxador
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Seven Valleys, PA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Norma Jean might look sad, but these may just be the happiest days of her life. This poor girl was found as a stray, completely emaciated, covered in fleas, feces, and open sores, and in pain from overgrown nails and arthritic hips. The shelter put out a desperate plea to save her life, and Good Old Tails couldn't say no. She hasn't been with us for very long but has already put on weight, and with some proper nutrition and TLC has felt a dramatic improvement in her skin and coat. Sweet Norma is grateful for everything she is given- soft beds, good food and treats, and all the love she wants. She is gentle and tolerant of all her foster friends; dogs, cats, and kids. We know that she might spend the rest of her days in foster care, but we are so happy to make those last days as bright as we can for her. Please consider donating to Norma's ongoing care.

      rescue
      Breed: Beagle
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Seven Valleys, PA
      Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). Quiet, gentle Brucey has clearly led a hard life. He is one of the dogs for whom a trip to the shelter is truly a blessing. Finally Brucey had nutritious food, a soft bed, and kindness from people who cared about him. But a scroungy old beagle is not likely to last long in any shelter, especially an overcrowded building in rural North Carolina. Brucey was out of time, but the volunteers who loved him knew that he had more life to live: they arranged for him to be transported to PA and into the are of Good Old Tails. ​ In foster care Brucey has been a complete gentleman. He has had surprisingly few accidents considering he wasn't neutered until coming to our rescue, he is crate trained, and rides well in the car. He is happy to share his space with other dogs and even cats, and is gentle and polite with like-minded children. After a thorough teeth cleaning Brucey can now eat without struggle, and long-overdue medications are helping him to live pain free. This little guy just needs a quiet place to lay his head; will you give Brucey the love he's been missing?

      Breed: Boston Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Seven Valleys, PA
      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier. Beanie is about 12 years old and was most likely on his own for several months before being found. Cold and starving, he walked right into a local business and the kind folks there took him in until they found help. Now Beanie is recovering in foster care, waiting to get healthy so he can find his forever home. Despite being brand new to his foster home, Beanie has already settled in beautifully. He is good with dogs, cats, and kids, and is house trained despite not yet being neutered. He gets around very well and is even able to jump up on the couch by himself. Beanie has a lengthy recovery ahead of him but his spirits are high and he is a joy to his foster family. We are so happy to be able to help this wonderful boy!

      Breed: Poodle (Toy)
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Seven Valleys, PA
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Toy). Words cannot describe how adorable and sweet this little guy is! Fritzie loves everyone he meets: dogs, cats, and of course all people. He is quiet, playful, and very snuggly. He's just a tiny little man but luckily he doesn't mind being carried. Fritzie is very good friends with Trixie and he would love to go home with her, but they can be adopted separately. ​ Because of his age and size, we will not place Fritzie in a home with small children. He needs help with house training but is happy to wear a belly band when not in his crate (he is crate trained). Fritzie had very bad teeth when he was brought to rescue and many had to be removed; he is very happy to eat moistened kibble or canned food, and he absolutely loves treats!
