Zack the Beagle Looking To Mend His Broken Heart

Dog's owners lost their home to foreclosure and had to give up their beloved dog.

Zack, a 6-year-old purebred beagle, just had his whole world turned upside down when his owners brought him to a local shelter. They lost their home due to hard times and had to move to an apartment that didn't accept dogs. When his owners walked out, Zack kept lunging at the door where they left and barked and barked. 

Zack spent two weeks in the shelter curled in a ball, barely lifting his head or eating, heartbroken at losing his family. Hearing his story decided to take him in, and he was moved to the director's home where he has lived for the past month.

Zack is a beagle through and through. He follows his foster mom around the house, sleeps beside her bed and is both affectionate and at times independent. He loves to sniff outside, and on walks, his nose is to the ground. 

He is good with dogs, cats and gentle kids. He is housebroken and is not destructive. He does have mild anxiety when left alone and will bark for a few minutes when you leave and arrive back home. But who could blame him after all he's been through? 

If you love beagles and want to help a dog that needs his heart mended please consider Zack.

So Heartbreaking. Another sad outcome from this current economic crisis. This family loses their home and their dog. So sad. All of my pets have been rescued pets. Many years ago we rescued a beagle. She was my best buddy for 9 years. Wish we could rescue Zach. Unfortunately, my husband works full time and while I only work part time and our 8 year old lab sleeps most of the time that we are gone, I think Zach needs a home with a person who is around for him 24/7. Beagles do require a lot of attention. I will pass the word around to my friends about Zach. I hope he finds another home with a family that will love and care for him for the rest of his life. I also hope that the family who had to give him up will have good things happen for them and they will always have their memories of Zach....

Keeping paws crossed that Zach finds a good home soon. The only dogs I've ever owned were beagles. They are the best...beagles rule!
