Barely Used Pets (dog)

This sweet, 4-year-old Beagle is named Beth. She came to us as a stray, so we have been trying to find the perfect forever home for her. If you are looking for a lap dog, then look no further! Beth is a typical beagle, very affectionate. Beth will steal your attention whenever she can. She does get jealous over her human and toys. She is wonderful with kids and would be a great family addition. One of her favorite activities is riding in the car. She is house trained and walks very politely on leash. She is up to date on all her shots and is scheduled to be spayed, which is all included in her adoption fee of $150. Please come on out to meet with her.
