From the Foster:

Frannie is Fantastic! Frannie is a very Sweet girl, She is shy at first with meeting anyone new and will crouch to the ground, with some kind words and slow soft pets she will start to wag her tail. Frannie does well with my other dogs and would benefit from an easy going friendly canine in her new home. Since she is on the shy side and loud fast movements can scare her she would do best with no kids or older dog respectful kids. Also with her being on the shyer scared side right now she will need a secure fenced yard as she freezes on the leash, she relaxes more when she is in my fenced backyard with me. Since she is a Beagle no shared walls for her as she recently found her voice. Frannie is working on her housetraining and crate training.To see the trust that she is starting to build with me in her eyes just warms my heart , After spending her life only being valued for how many puppies she could produce Frannie is ready to continue to be the Loved Adorable Family Member she is meant to be!

Hello! I have a couple health considerations, but am still considered very much adoptable.  Through the course of my vet care at Secondhand Hounds it was discovered that I have high blood pressure (hypertension) and need to be on 2 medications lifelong for this. My adopter should expect to establish a relationship with a veterinarian promptly post-adoption to continue maintaining my high quality care. In addition to the medication, I should have my blood pressure checked every 3 months, have blood work checked every 6-12 months (more often as I age), and recheck my urine protein levels every 3-6 months. My urine protein levels need to be checked as it was discovered I have something called Proteinuria, so some excess protein in my urine. Luckily this is managed by one of the medications I am already on for my high blood pressure. I did arrive at SHH with a heart murmur, but an echocardiogram was done and it was determined that it is purely physiologic and doesn't require any special care beyond my future vet being aware and monitoring it through regular exams. I do need to continue to lose weight to help with my health and joint as I age and am currently on a prescription weight loss food. Adopters should continue this or another weight loss food as recommended by their veterinarian to get me to an ideal weight for my little beagle body (28-29#). Lastly, I do have a history of a skin / ear infection and may be susceptible to them in the future. However, high quality grooming, regular ear cleaning, medicated baths, and some "as needed" spray between my toes should keep me maintained very well.
