Bagel likes to socialize — she’ll get along great with cats, dogs and kids. She already has all of her shots, and she’s been spayed. Good news: she is already house trained.
From Bagel’s caretaker:
Bagel! We were called to rescue Bagel – she had walked into someone’s back yard. She was terrified and confused. Noone contacted us about her, and now she is ready for adoption. Bagel is a five month old Beagle-pit mix, and now she has a bubbly and curious personality! She has some good old dangly ears, and a lot of wag! Bagel would love to live with another dog – especially one who loves to play tug, or rough house. Bagel is used to leash walking and and is pretty potty trained already! She is not mouthy and loves some down time in a lap in between her play sessions!
