ABANDONED BEAGLE WELCOMED INTO NEW FAMILY - “The elusive beagle who evaded would-be rescuers for days received her Valentine’s Day presents early this year — a name, a new home and a loving family.”
A Beagle, now named Sophia, was wandering around for days in the freezing temperatures of Jamestown, North Dakota, after having been abandoned by her former owners. Fortunately, she was rescued and brought to the James River Humane Society. Sophia has now been adopted and has a new home. Here’s more from The Jamestown Sun:
Concerned by the plummeting temperatures predicted to fall 20 degrees below zero, with wind chills forecast at minus 54, people from the Sheriff’s Office set out to catch and rescue the dog.
“(She) did not want to get caught,” said Detective Jason Falk of the Stutsman County Sheriff’s Office…Johnson, her Sheriff’s Office helpers and helpers from the Humane Society baited a trap with food and water and checked it every few hours, but the canny beagle simply strolled in, grabbed the goodies and left without springing the trap — for a whole day and a night.
She sprung the trap only after it had been readjusted, and was found in it and rescued at last on Feb. 2.
Now she’ll spend most of her days in the Schauer house, and when the weather allows she’ll have the run of the fenced-in back yard, too.
“She’s going to get lots of love,” Cindy said, before bringing the beagle home on Wednesday afternoon.
Johnson said that Sophia seemed ready to become attached to someone
After having a rough start to life, Sophia now has warm home with a family that will love her. Click here for the full story and here for more about James River Humane Society.
