Meet FRANK!!!

His owners are people my DH knew at work, they're moving and were going to dump Frank at the pound! WTF???

Frank's awesome, he's fun and happy and very well behaved, and I'm having a blast walking him around. He seems to love us too!!!:carrot::carrot::carrot:

09-23-2009, 08:18 PM
Super cute!

09-23-2009, 08:23 PM
yay!! I'm a beagle owner as well. I was just talking to another rescue today (I board my dogs there) and they casually mentioned they had another beagle that needs a home. I was like "oh no!". I absolutely love the hounds.

Oh and that is absolutely horrible that someone could treat their pet as a 'thing' and just want to dump them. Although I know with the economy people have had various reasons for getting rid of their pets (like having to move into a no pet place). I would be damned if I'd give up my babies though.

Congratulations on the new member of your family! He is so darn cute! Lucky girl! :hug:

He is adorable! Years ago, I had a beagle named Penny. She was the best little dog ever. Congratulations!

09-23-2009, 09:13 PM
How cute! Can't imagine giving up my cats ever....

09-23-2009, 09:15 PM
What a cutie!!!

09-23-2009, 09:30 PM
Congratulations Trazey! He's absolutely adorable. Think of all the wonderful exercise you'll get walking him!

09-23-2009, 09:39 PM
Yay, I love beagles!!!!

09-23-2009, 10:09 PM
AWWWWW! He's so cute! Beagles are wonderful dogs! My little Maggie is part beagle!

09-23-2009, 10:10 PM
Aww, how cute! It sounds like he has a much better home now.

09-23-2009, 10:15 PM
He's adorable. Looks smart, too ;)

09-23-2009, 10:35 PM
He's just adorable. And so very lucky to have you to take care of him.

Enjoy him!!!!

09-23-2009, 10:38 PM
OH my gosh he is SUPER SUPER cute!!!!! Congratulations on Frank. What a great name for a beagle!

09-23-2009, 10:43 PM
My brother had a beagle named Sadie. Great dogs. Hes is a real cutie. Congrats on your new baby. I'm so glad Frank found a good home with you.

I'm sure he does love you, too! Rescue dogs have a knack for understanding that someone has given them a second chance. My Chewie is slightly schizophrenic (I'm pretty sure he hears voices) but I love him and I wouldn't trade him for anything! Congratulations!

He sure has a great smile:D

How cute!

I'm fostering a corgi right now, his owner had to move and couldn't find a house that would let him keep the dog.

Anyone need a 4 year old, neutered corgi?

09-24-2009, 01:00 AM
I have a pembroke welsh corgi. Is he a cardi or a pem? If you can't keep him you can contact corgi rescue and most of them are really good about taking them in and finding them homes :)

09-24-2009, 01:15 AM
Yay! What wonderful news both both Frank and you!

09-24-2009, 01:20 AM
He is a cutie pie, and looks like he's a ham, smiles for the camera!!

Enjoy your new buddy and walking partner!

How old is he?

What a sweetie!

We have a Beagle "exactly like Frank!"--at least that's what my daughter said as we ooohed and cooed. What a happy face he's got!

09-24-2009, 03:24 AM
Congratulations! That is one good lookin beagle! :)

09-24-2009, 03:50 AM
He's beautiful! and will obviously have a better life with you than with people who didn't care about him.

09-24-2009, 04:22 AM
In Germany adopting a dog is almost like adopting a child; and people are not allowed to throw them away like garbage. I do not understand why the U.S. and Canada are so backward in this area. I know I should be tolerant and that people have reasons, but since I was a kid I could never be friends with anyone who ever, ever mistreated any animal. So, thank you for taking Frank. You are his angel.

09-24-2009, 07:33 AM
Cutie! I'm so glad he found a home with people who will love him right. :)

09-24-2009, 08:22 AM
Welcome Frank! He does have the great Beagle smile. We have a Beagle mix, Lucy, that smiles just like him! Lucy is a Giant Beagle--she's 45 lbs. and loves to run w/DH. They are such sweet and happy dogs.

09-24-2009, 08:24 AM
I love Beagles! In college we had a neighborhood Beagle named Fido. No one knew where he lived - he was out running around, friendly, healthy. He would follow me to classes. Fond memories.

He was a street smart urban dog.

09-24-2009, 08:26 AM
I think it's just wonderful that you took Frank in. He looks incredibly happy and I'm sure you and your family are going to create tons of great memories with him in the years to come. :hug:

09-24-2009, 08:27 AM
Congrats on the new addition, and congrats to Frank for not having to go to the pound !!! :carrot:

I have a pembroke welsh corgi. Is he a cardi or a pem? If you can't keep him you can contact corgi rescue and most of them are really good about taking them in and finding them homes :)

He's a pem. I'd keep him, but I already have 3 and that's enough. I'm going to call a gal know and get him into a rescue somewhere. He has a bright, shiny, happy personality, but,,,,,he's been an only child and has no doggie social skills so a home with another dog isn't going to work well, and his previous owners, while they loved him, and took very good care of him, didn't teach him anything, he doesn't even know sit. So not having any rules or boundries ever, he doesn't know what to do if you tell him no, so he either curls his lip and growls or goes and hides. He also won't be good with small kids and as a Pem, he's of course a cat chaser.

All these issues are easily resolveable, because they aren't bad, but I don't have enough time to do justice to him. Plus I don't feel comfortable placing him right now, because unless the new owners are experienced, it probably won't work out. I don't want to see that, because he can be a real sweetie. He loves to cuddle on the couch and have his belly rubbed.

Frank is 3, and we've had him almost two weeks - i'm insanely in love with him already!!! His previous owners had a totally different philosophy from me when it comes to dogs/pets. They kept him for barking in case of an intruder, that's pretty much it. Caged most of the time. OK I'm going to start bawling LOL Dogs are people too and need to roam around and be cuddled!! he loves his new bed, and he looks all happy and stoked to be with people ~ don't worry, I'm not going to dress him up in outfits and push him around in a baby carriage ;) heheheh

AND I've been walking like crazy, he's so fun to take outside -- i think it's a match made in heaven!!!

Thanks for all the fun replies, Frank says thanks too!

09-24-2009, 10:47 PM
Dogs aren't people? I did not know that.

I must be nuts:?:

I am in the lucky position of being able to take my dog, Ruby to work with me every day, I talk to her all the time. I swear she knows what I'm saying.:carrot:

BTW, Kirby my foster dog is getting better.:carrot: He has a ways to go, but he's gonna be ok. Made some contacts today with a corgi rescue that is going to help me finding him an appropriate corgi home.

They are a bit of a temperamental herding breed, not for everyone. Great dogs, but aloof, stubborn and independent. Loyal to a fault, if you can understand them.

Some people just shouldn't own pets! I got my dog under similar circumstances, except the previous dog owners were moving into OUR rental property where we allow pets! The wife said that she didn't want the dog to "ruin the carpet" and I was like, "What??" Sometimes I think pet owners simply don't want the pet anymore and just look for an excuse. Congratulations to you and Frank for finding him a good home!
