Cotton home

UPDATE: We’re so happy to share that Cotton now Fern has found her loving forever home! Cotton is now enjoying her days romping around and playing with her 3 new human siblings who she loves and adores! Cotton is for sure living the good life now and we couldn’t be happier! Enjoy your life Cotton!

“Hi Melody! So sorry to just be getting back to you! Christmas was wonderful but busy and then we drove to visit family and just got back last night. Brought Cotton with us and she did wonderful! Loves the car and meeting all the family!

We just love her and she has a home to stay! We have renamed her Fern, she is such a sweet thing. The kids adore her, and the feeling is mutual. She’s been a wonderful addition to the Holiday season. Here are FINAL a bunch of pictures of Fern.  She has been such a sweet girl and the kids ADORE her.  And the best part is she adores them right back!  It’s so sweet to see how excited she gets when they are back from school.  She loves to go on walks and has lots of fun playing outside with them.  She quickly decided that the end of my daughters bed was the comfiest place to sleep…much better than the dog bed on the floor.  😉

As with all Beagles, she LOVES food and will do anything for a treat.  We’ve signed her up for a training class and took her to the first one on Saturday.  She really enjoys other dogs of all sizes and is a very friendly little thing.  Thanks so much!!  (Have a few more emails coming with more pictures.  If you don’t need them all, just choose your favorites.  🙂  Thanks! Chrissie”

Brief Bio: Hi my name is Cotton. I used to have a home where my human dad cherished me dearly. He named me Cotton because of my soft nature and good manners. Life was full of happiness until one day it took a tragic turn, when my dad was hospitalized for sickness. The next day, my mom took me for a ride. I happily jumped in the car, thinking we were about to embark on a fun trip. But she left me in a place where some strange people locked me with many other dogs in a small pit, with a very strong odor, all of us were forced to step on each other’s feces and urine because there was not a clean spot to stand or lie down. I screamed at the top of my lungs, wanting to get out, but no one noticed my cries.

At night, howling and barking rang out in the cell and filled the air with loneliness and fear. I knew then that I was in what they called dog-pound, where unwanted dogs stayed for a short period of time before they were destroyed. I cried, waited behind bars for my mom and dad to come take me home, but they never came. One after another, I watched my cellmates being dragged away and never came back. Just when I was about to give up all hope, a kind woman took me away from the horrible place. She brought me to her home where there were other dogs that were all happy, with toys to play, bed to sleep, fresh water and food all day long. She told me she would like to keep me, but she has many other dogs like me to take care of. She promised she’d find a good home for me where I’d be always loved.

I am looking for a loving home that will love me forever. I promise to return all the love with everything I have. Would you give me a forever home?
