Hi there, my name is Sage. I am a sweet & tiny girl looking for a special home to call my own. I was a "breeder release" dog which means I was used for breeding until they didn't want me anymore. I was not socialized or treated nicely during the first few years of my life which made me very scared and shy. My perfect family will understand that I won't be able to run right into their arms at our first meeting or even the second. Meeting new people is scary for me because I don't know yet that people will be nice. I do warm up, after a little over a week in my foster home I was coming up asking to for loves and pets. I now snuggle up next to my foster parents while they work or watch TV, and the day I licked my foster mom's cheek she had tears in her eyes. I tried to tell her it's not a big deal but she assured me it definitely was. She says it means I am coming out of my shell and becoming the happy dog I deserve to be. Having another dog or dogs in the home really helps me. If I see them getting love and attention then it shows me that I am safe to get love too. I absolutely love spending time sunbathing in the yard, so my perfect home would have a fenced in back yard for me to roam and spend as long as I like enjoying the sunshine. Loud noises and sudden movements still startle me. I need a home that is calm and quiet. If there are children they need to be over 10 years old and understand my needs. I am learning that toys are super fun! I like playing with stuffed animals and chewing on nylon bones. Since I have never had toys before, I am still learning what are toys and what isn't suppose to be played with or chewed on but I'm learning quickly! I have the cutest little beagle bark and howl that I like to use outside when cars drive by or squirrels are in the trees. I currently sleep in my kennel at night but it is not my favorite place to be and I will howl for a few minutes but calm down and sleep through the night. I would love to be able to sleep in the room with my humans on my favorite little doggy bed. I very rarely have any accidents in the house. I will make a great addition to my special forever family and getting to see me come out of my shell and be the dog I was always meant to be will make you just as happy as it will make me. I hope we are each others perfect match! Sage is a female Beagle, weighs 14 lbs and was born 5-20-18. She is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, given flea/tick preventative, dewormed, tested negative for heartworm disease & given a Proheart injection for 6 months of heartworm preventative.
