This is Wag ‘N Woof’s first time participating in the Tuesday’s Tails Blog Hop, hosted by Dogs N Pawz. This blog hop features shelter animals. Find a cat, dog, rabbit or other animal at a local shelter or rescue and feature them on this blog hop! Come join the fun and help a furry friend find a forever home. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to visit the other blogs and share their animals that need forever homes on your social media sites. Please spread the word!
**UPDATE – HESTER HAS BEEN ADOPTED!!**
Sweet and friendly Hester is a 9 year old Beagle/Dachshund mix. She is 24 pounds, spayed, and heartworm negative. She gets along great with cats and other dogs. She came to NH from Ohio, where the shelter she was at lost power due to flooding.
The rescue says that they are “happy to have met this cuddly girl, and she would not mind sleeping on the bed with you (at all).” She just had her teeth cleaned as well!
More details about Hester:
- Up to Date with routine shots
- house trained
- Black, Red, Chestnut or Orange
- Coat length: short
Here is the link to her Petfinder page: Petfinder/Hester
Hester is in foster care through Libby’s Haven for Senior Canines in Canterbury, NH. Libby’s Haven is an all-volunteer group dedicated to re-homing and caring for senior dogs in need. Their email is firstname.lastname@example.org, where you can request an adoption application.
I chose a senior for my first Tuesday’s Tails, because I think they make great pets. Nine may sound old for a dog, but our Beagle Cricket is almost 9 and she is still just as healthy and active as ever!

She is precious. Hope she finds a forever home real soon. Thanks for joining the blog hop. It’s great to have you! Sharing:)
Thank you, I was so glad to join up, and I hope to do so more often!
Pamela | Something Wagging This Way Comes says
Hester is a great dog to highlight. She demonstrates how some rescue dogs are very nearly perfect for many families (house trained, mature, petite).
As for being senior–I know some beagle mixes that are approaching 18 years old. She might only be middle aged.
That’s a great point, Pamela. I’d certainly like to think of my younger Beagle as only being middle aged.
Ann Paws says
Hester looks like a very wise pup 🙂 I hope she finds a great home! I always forget to add my adoptable pet to this blog hop ><
Don’t forget, Ann, this seems like a great hop to join up with, especially since you’re already doing adoptable pets.
I know, too sweet, isn’t she?
I completely agree…seniors make the best pets. They know that they’ve been rescued and love you all the more for it. Everyone deserves a new beginning! Sure hope this little sweetie finds her furever home soon.
Nice to meet you, fellow New Englander 🙂
And I hope they all find their forever homes soon too!

Thank you, Sheba. Me too.

You know I’m a sucker for a beagle mix… What a sweet pea! I hope she finds her furever home soon!
Yes, I thought you might like this one, Jackie! If only we could take them all, huh?
Oh how I love beagles. My little Roxanne was a beagle, dachshund, shepherd mix. Hubby says no more beagles though. 🙁
I hope Hester finds her forever home. Welcome to Tuesday’s Tails!
Oh no, no more Beagles? Now that we have had two, I can’t imagine ever being without at least one Beagle.
