Meet Lulu Belle, a 2 ½ year old beagle mix who weighs in at 21 lbs. At first glance, you’ll see her pretty face but what you don’t see is the suffering she had in the past as part of a hoarding/abuse case and living in a shelter for a year without anyone showing interest in adopting her or her 2 siblings. LB is in a foster home now and is very comfortable with the fosters’ 4 dogs and cat. In less than a week, she started showing signs of trusting humans and allowed petting without getting direct eye contact. In one week, we found out that she loves snacks and has bonded with her foster dad who makes liver treats! In 10 days, she was on foster dad’s lap giving puppy kisses. There’s hope for her future but will have to be a family with a lot of patience as they introduce Lulu Belle to the world. She is now walking well on a leash and wears a harness. A fenced yard and a mature dog would be perfect to show her how to be a dog.
