An abandoned beagle named "Wynter" who loves other dogs and loves people needs a forever home. He's just under two years old.
Poor Wynter was dumped at a state park in Georgia. He was picked up by the Department of Natural Resources and taken to the shelter. He was then taken to a vet because of a leg injury and there was talk of putting him down the next day because the shelter did not have the financial resources to help him.
Tampa Bay Beagle Rescue was contacted by a local Georgia rescue for help. He arrived in rough shape for being such a young pup! He was evaluated by a stellar surgeon and determined to have a partially dislocated elbow. It had likely been like that for some time. However there was great hope of being able to save his leg so on December 16 he underwent surgery to fix it. He also had his cherry eyes repaired and has gone through heartworm treatment. Extreme Makeover, Beagle Edition!
Wynter is a real trooper. He never complained and he has done well with his foster family, loving the children and other beagles in his home during his recovery.
Wynter is great in his crate after all that practice after his surgery. He's got a little limp as he recovers but it's improving as his strength returns. He loves to be outside and loves to curl up for a nap in the sunshine.
Wynter is a smaller sized beagle. He melts in your arms if you give him the opportunity. He's looking for just the right family to adopt him. Some toys, affection, and a soft place to sleep are all he needs. He would do just fine as an only dog, but with proper introductions, he does well in a multi-dog setting as well.
