Name: Cherry Best Guess for Breed: Beagle
Best Guess for Age: 2 years SEX: female
Approximate Weight: 26 lbs.

Currently Living with a foster, Cherry needs a forever home.
Special adoption considerations: Noise may be an issue due to breed.
When it comes to personality, Cherry has it all going on! She gets along well with other dogs, cats and kids. She is a little on the shy side but likes to give kisses once she gets to know you. Loud noises and sudden movements startle her just a bit but she's learning to accept all the activity that comes with city life. Her foster describes her as a super easy dog.
Cherry is a Beagle so expect her to be energetic, loyal, gentle, and a bit stubborn. Beagles are independent-minded dogs who experience the whole world through their nose. Trips to the dog park to hang out with other dogs and sniff all the scents they left behind will be great fun for Cherry. She will relish the opportunity to stretch her legs before she heads home to snooze the night away. Just make sure the dog park is fenced in or Cherry may be off on an adventure you didn't plan for.
Cherry had an eye condition known as cherry eye, which affects a tear gland of the third eyelid of some dogs. It usually occurs in young puppies and in Cherry's case it was bilateral, meaning it affects both eyes. Cherry eye is common in Beagles and several other breeds.
The good news is that Cherry was treated for her eye condition before she came to DC. Surgery for cherry eye is a common procedure and has a very positive prognosis. Cherry will however continue to have dry eyes and will need eye drops daily.
Obedience class is a great opportunity to help Cherry become the best dog that she can be. The faster she learns what you want her to do the happier both of you will be. Like most shelter dogs, Cherry may need a refresher on housetraining. She is likely crate trained.
The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Diane at firstname.lastname@example.org!
