Looking to Adopt A New Beagle?
Donations/Foster/adopter needed for beagle pup with broken jaw
Charlie is a 4m old beagle that came to BTTR after being kicked in the jaw and surrendered to a shelter in NC. The vet he saw at the shelter stitched the gum over the bone to keep the pieces intact and reduce infection until he could have surgery. BTTR brought him to The Cove in Suffolk, VA to receive the specialty care he needed. Since the jaw bone was so badly broken and had begun healing the vets were unable to repair the jaw. A portion of his lower right side jaw bone and teeth were removed leaving his canine and far rear molars. His teeth on the left side and right top are intact. Since Charlie is so young he still has his baby teeth and his mouth may change as his adult teeth grow in. Charlie may need additional surgery/surgeries as his adult teeth grow in, BTTR is seeking donations for his medical bills.
Donations can be made online via Facebook, or through our website by clicking here. Donations can also be made by mail to 1847 Centerville TPKE S, Chesapeake, VA 23322.
Charlie is recovering very well but really, really, really wants to play with the other dogs at the rescue which he isn’t able to do yet. We are seeking a quiet home for temporary foster at least until 1/31/19 when his follow up at is. Please read ALL requirements below before calling us.
Charlies Fosters must:
Live within 30min of our facility in (1847 Centerville TPKE S. Chesapeake, VA 23322)
Be able to administer multiple medications every 8 hours
Have a quiet home without young children (other pets okay as long as they aren’t going to want to play with him during his recovery)
Ideally Charlie needs a place that doesn’t have anything (toys, pets, kids) that he can chew on, or could injure his jaw in playing
Be able to walk him daily and supervise him anytime he is not in a crate, he cannot be left alone for more than around 4 hours at a time until he recovers to monitor his recovery
Be willing to bring him by our facility or have a rescue member visit every few days until he is recovered
Fosters do not necessarily have priority in adopting him. We will seek out the best home for him once we see his personality after he recovers.
To talk with someone about fostering Charlie call us at 757-447-7773 from 9am to 8pm, if you miss us please leave a message, we aren’t able to return your call if you don’t.
Charlie will be looking for a new home once he is completely recovered. We are NOT currently accepting applications for him but we will be as soon as he is recovered. Please click here for more info about adopting a beagle from BTTR
