A Little About Sweetie

Sweetie is such a great little beagle girl who has had a very tough life. She was found as a stray in Ritchie County West Virginia and animal control there put her in the shelter. Even in the shelter, Sweetie was very quiet and calm and very gentle with the staff there. She especially loved when children came to the shelter and would love to cuddle in their laps. She even enjoyed cuddling up with the cats at the shelter!

Ritchie County Humane Society is a very high kill shelter with many beagles so Homeward Trails wanted to get Sweetie out right away. Many people wanted to adopt her in the DC area, but right before she was to be adopted, we found out she was going to have puppies! So Sweetie lived at the shelter until all of her pups were weaned and adopted. Finally, Sweetie was able to come to the DC area for a first-time dog owner. Sweetie loved to learn how to live in her new house and learned all her manners very quickly - including housebreaking! Unfortunately for Sweetie, her new family decided that they did not have time to even take Sweetie outside to go potty so they returned her to Homeward Trails. Sweetie is such a sweet and quiet girl and so well behaved that many people wanted to adopt her! Even after all that she has been through, Sweetie still does not have a mean bone in her body. She was named perfectly.

Sweetie is so close to finding her forever home - but being a beagle, she found an interesting scent and decided to check it out. Now poor Sweetie is lost! This poor little girl deserves her happy ending. Won't you help us find Sweetie?

  1. I really hope you're able to find her. We recently picked up a beagle on the side of the road and have decided to keep him (after searching for his rightful owner to no avail). He was in pretty bad shape, but he's made such progress. Still working on housebreaking, though!

    Best of luck. We'll keep Sweetie in our prayers and have posted the donation link on our site.
