Checker and his beagle buddy Charley came to us from Wilson County.  Unfortunately, poor care in his previous life resulted in Checker being heartworm positive and having to have 17 teeth pulled recently. But he’s a typical beagle, and hasn’t let that stop him from enjoying every meal and treat that comes his way! Checker is a handsome boy who arrived here a bit overweight.  But good nutrition and lots of play with his foster dog buddies have resulted in a more svelte silhouette for our Checker.  He’s a real love-bug, enjoying humans, little humans, and other dogs.  He plays with toys and gnaws on bones as best he can with his remaining teeth.  A bit of a low-rider, he needs a boost up to a sofa or bed, but loves to nap in those soft spots, where he entertains with his snoring.  At night, Checker is happy to sleep on a dog bed or in a crate with the door open.  He’s hoping to find a wonderful family of his own, to love and spoil him.  Does he sound like the boy for you?

Medical Note:  Checker is undergoing heartworm treatment, and will be available after that is completed.
