I lay in the corner of my cage, curled up in a little ball breathing heavily from running so fast that day. My master was trying to train me to be a hunting dog but I’m afraid I wasn’t very good at it and that made my master very angry. I guess I just wasn’t cut out to be a hunter.
The next day, Master picked me up and tossed me in a cage and drove me to an animal shelter where he left me. I howled a little as the receptionist picked me up and took me into the back room where a bunch of scared, skinny dogs were lying in their cages. She put me into the cage and locked the door.
One day, a representative of City Dogs Rescue came and looked around the shelter. She said, “That’s the sweet girl we want to rescue.” Her kind looking eyes met mine and she walked over and fed me a treat. She put her fingers through the metal cage door and I licked them tentatively. A few weeks later, I was on my way to Washington, DC where my foster family came to pick me up. A nice lady named Megan and her daughter Hailey were both so excited to see me.
When we got to their home, my dad came out with another beagle, just my size, named Kiwi. She was so nice and welcoming. The happiest day of my entire life was when they named me Clover and signed the papers to adopt me. I love my sisters, Kiwi and Hailey, my mommy, and my daddy. I am now a very happy three-year-old beagle. I get to play with Kiwi and snuggle with mommy in bed at night. I’ve got the best forever home, ever!
Kiwi and Clover are lovingly owned by the Emerson family.
