Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    This sweet elderly beagle needs a home. She was surviving by eating out of garbage cans. She was very clearly neglected by whoever was responsible for her at one point. She has had multiple severe ear infections, which can be seen by the curling of her ears. She looks to have had several litters. She was flea bitten and hungry when we found her. She also had a growth on her mammary glands, which is very common when dogs are not spayed. We had the growth removed, had her spayed, and got her a rabies shot and Bravecta. Despite her horrible treatment by people, this dog is incredibly sweet. She wags her tail when you speak with her. ... (Read More)She will get up from a sleep and walk to come say hello to you when she becomes aware of your presence. She is nice to other dogs and to cats. This girl deserves a loving home in her last few years. She is available to be flown anywhere in the U.S. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Puerto Rico
    Dogs can make good pets in Puerto Rico if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Puerto Rico Fact Sheet
    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. There are hundreds of dog breeds with extremely varied characteristics and sizes, from the tiniest teacup Chihuahua to the hugest Mastiff, but all of these breeds make up just one species Canis lupus familiaris and can theoretically breed with one another (although there can be practical and health related constraints.) The dog was the earliest domesticated animal. Dogs can hear much lower frequencies than humans, over twice as high as humans, and about four times as far as humans.
