A message from Lonnie -
Hi, my name is Lonnie, and I’m a two-year old, 30-pound beagle mix. My foster family says I’m fabulous. I came from a high-kill shelter in North Carolina and am very thankful to be out of there.
When I was first transported here, I was super scared. But after just a few hours, I felt so much better. My foster family has two kids (ages 10 and 12), whom I adore. They talk to me, pet me and walk me. Every time they even look at me, I can’t help wagging my tail. Actually, I wag my tail a lot.
My foster family also has other dogs. They each have very different personalities, but I love them all. The family says I’m super tolerant of their crazy, huge six-month old puppy, but the truth is, I really enjoy playing with him.
I’m curious and very smart. I care much more about TLC than treats. I’m not crazy about the crate, but the foster family says I have to sleep in it at night, so I do. It’s not that bad. I love pleasing people, am generally quiet and am happy to cuddle on a dog bed alone, with another pup or on the floor near your feet. If you call my name, no matter where I am, I will come running.
