Gender: Female Age: 3 - 4 years Status: Adopted

Miss Sarah came to Midwest BREW from a hoarding situation in Iowa. She lived with 35 other dogs and rarely had human contact except from the man who fed her. This lack of socialization initially made her shy and afraid.   However, in the few months had her, we’ve seen her come out of her shell and make huge progress.   She is a sweet dog with a funny personality.—She so funny, that foster mom has started calling her Silly instead of Sarah. She LOVES to play. One of her favorite things to do is rearrange dog beds. She moves them all over the house and even puts them on the couch or at the top of the stairs so she can watch her world more comfortably. She’ll even turn the beds inside out just for fun. She loves to wrestle with a rope and run circles around our smaller dog and can rough house with him for hours.   She also loves bones and to perch on the back of the couch like a cat.   Long walks are one of her favorite things—though getting her harness on her has become a bit of a game. She runs away (though not very fast) and wiggles her tail in excitement. Then, you have to catch her again so she can get some snuggle time in before her adventure begins.   While walking she loves to smell everything and will often dig her nose in with her tiny bottom in the air-which always makes her humans laugh.   Beware—she is fast—and walking with her can be quite the workout!

Surprisingly, she is a bit of an alpha, so she may do better with a more submissive female or male. She is not all beagle-she has super long legs and runs gracefully. She is also lean, but it looks good on her. She’s the sort of dog who eats until she is full and then runs to play—definitely not like a beagle. She is a joy to watch when she is running in circles in the backyard. She has shorter ears and a longer nose and has a super short tail. Our vet cannot tell if she was born this way or if it was removed surgically.
 
Sarah is going to need a patient family with experience with fearful dogs. She seems more apprehensive around men, but is improving. And she likes to chew on things-especially soft things, so she’ll need some training or lots of toys.
