Our delightful dowager, Tallulah, has not had a single break in her entire life.  This lovely tri-color Beagle-Basset lady first came to us in 2016, and was quickly adopted by a very special gentleman who passed recently.  

We were thrilled when Richard adopted Tallulah, and he treated her like a Queen.  His passing left her in a lurch, and she wound up in a Cape Cod Boarding Kennel. Richard's granddaughter alerted us to Tallulah's predicament, and we quickly retrieved her.


Now 11 years old, Tallulah is in Rescue for the second time.  Her journey originated in New York, at the Brooklyn ACC.  She was the Grand Dam to a family of Beagles, that were surrendered by an owner, claiming that he found them as strays in the park. Sometimes, dicey owners tell tall tales to avoid paying owner surrender fees to shelters desperately in need of funds to make ends meet.  Let's just say it's highly unlikely that an entire family of Beagles would be on the stroll in the city park.

Tallulah had obviously been bred during every heat cycle before we had her spayed. Before her 2016 adoption, she underwent a vigorous weight loss and nutritional rehabilitation and left us in great shape. Now, our Vet has given her a senior work up, and has diagnosed her with Cushing's Disease, which we control with daily meds.  

Tallulah seems to be a dog whose happy expectations in life have been quashed by human greed.  Compelled to produce puppies for profit, Tallulah seemed to have given up the notion that she could have a life of her own. And, when she found her "forever" home, it wasn't meant to be. 

We are just optimistic enough to believe there is a blessed third act for Tallulah. The ideal situation for her would be a home in which she could shine as Superstar. We would like to see her lavished with attention and love. She could easily join the moderately active home of a single or couple, recent retiree or senior.  She's way past the puppy destructive years, and would be a good choice for apartment living. She's not overly reactive to sounds, and doesn't seem to bark much.  

Tallulah has a laid back activity level and requires at least one to two leisurely strolls a day, with plenty of time built in for her to stop and smell the roses! She is a medium sized dog at 35 pounds. She is an active girl, and is full of life and love, and is Scent Hound to the bone. 

Tallulah is great with other dogs and cats: she could easily join a multi-dog home and would make the ideal companion to another senior dog who recently lost their beloved housemate.  She could do well in a family with older children, but toddlers may not be the best fit, as their overzealous attentions can spook laid-back dogs.

Tallulah has good house manners, and is house trained and crate trained.  Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during her transition to a new home.  Talullah is in good health, and her Cushing's is well controlled with daily meds. Otherwise, she is in great senior health, up to date on routine vaccinations and health screenings.
