New Bedford Beagle Needs Help Coming Out of Her Shell [WET NOSE WEDNESDAY]
Wet Nose Wednesday is here again, and it's time to unite another loving animal with the perfect family.
There are hundreds of animals up for adoption on the SouthCoast, and each week, we shine a spotlight on one of them in hopes of finding a perfect match. With the help of local shelters, we share their stories, and this week we head to New Bedford where a 6-year-old Beagle is finally coming out of her shell.
Spirit resides at Lighthouse Animal Shelter in New Bedford, where the staff has worked hard to make her feel safe.
"Spirit came into the shelter very fearful and uncertain," the shelter said. "She really has blossomed out of her shell and is learning it's not so bad here."
Spirit is 30 pounds, but she is convinced that she is a lap dog, and will take any opportunity to slobber you with love and affection.
"We think Spirit would do best with people that will take things slow and give her time to decompress and show how confident she can be, once she trusts you," the shelter said.
Life has led Spirit to tread lightly, but with the love she has been receiving from the shelter, she is learning that there are good people in this world. Spirit is friendly with other dogs and looks forward to playing with her forever family.
