Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Mommy Desi-lu.  She is the sweetest, 3 1/2 year old Beagle mix, weighing 35lbs.  She has medium length fur.  She arrived in our Rescue already pregnant and had a beautiful litter who all have been adopted.

Desi came to us quite feral.  We have worked with her to get her to the appointment that she loves human touch and affection.  She loves her large crate, it's her safe haven.  She is not crated but the door is left open for her to come send go as she pleases.  This is important as Desi-lu, aka "The Hoarder" loves to take all the toys and keep them in her crate.  It's a hilarious site to see.  She carefully will watch when another dog leaves their toy, then tip toe over, literally, gently take it and bring it back to her crate!!!

She is very food motivated due to get breed mix.  Recently, she was placed on a weight management program.  She needs to lose 5lbs and is fed twice a day in her crate.  She is doing very well on it.  Her fur us very soft.  She loves to lay out in the sun.  We have started to take her for more car rides.  She is usually nervous on the way but very relaxed on the way back.  She does not get car sick.

Desi-lu is very afraid of a leash.  Her current foster home has a very large yard but she will need patience and work to learn it's okay to walk on a leash.  She was found as a stray.  She adores children so it is obvious that she had children in her life previously.  She is great with other dogs but cats are an unknown.  She is a quiet gal who is not a fan of the rain.  Desi-lu is both housebroken and paper trained.

The ideal home for our Desi, is one where the family is familiar with hounds.  It won't take long for Desi to bond with her new family, but patience will be important.  Another socialized dog would be a bonus.  She will learn to love going for walks once she sees how much the resident dog enjoys it!

Desi-lu is spayed, up to date with vaccines, and 4dx tested negative.

A fully fenced yard and a Veterinarian history of compliance is mandatory in order to apply for our Desi-lu.
