Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). NAME: Dave BREED: Beagle BIRTHDAY: 2010 WEIGHT: 25lbs ADOPTION FEE: $150 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 adjusted 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 but may be too much for cats who aren't dog-savvy. Dave loves getting 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 and dog brothers. Dave was recently diagnosed with a congenital defect to his trachea. He has a mild cough that is easily managed with medication every few days. Dave is a real chow hound so he takes his pills eagerly with canned food or pill pockets. Or a hot dog. Or cheese. Or mashed potatoes. Dave loves food. 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 always up for an adventure. This little fellow is going to make a sweet and fun addition to his new family! ​ For his safety and your sanity, Dave will require a fenced yard. Please research beagles before applying for Dave- his noise and energy levels are very typical of his breed!

More About Beagle Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, 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.

      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mastiff / Mixed (short coat). NAME: Fezzik BREED: Lab/Mastiff Mix BIRTHDAY: 2004 WEIGHT: 90lbs ADOPTION FEE: $75 ​ Fezzik came to the shelter with his eye protruding from its socket, and skin tags nearly a foot long hanging from his chest. Both were removed, and Fezzik began a new life with Good Old Tails where he will never be neglected again. This big old boy mostly just eats and sleeps- he has mobility issues and often needs help getting up after his nap. But he is a gentle giant who is great being handled. We know Fezzik may be a permanent resident with our rescue, but we happy to have him here where he will always be safe and loved.

      Norma Jean


      Breed: Boxador
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). NAME: Norma Jean BREED: Boxer Mix BIRTHDAY: 2003 WEIGHT: 50lbs ADOPTION FEE: $75 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. Proper nutrition and supplements, regular grooming, and lots of love have transformed Norma into a beautiful and overall healthy girl. Her only real issue is mobility- her age and size are working against her and she often needs help getting up, but she is completely fine being lifted and handled, and really seems to enjoy the attention. 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.
