TCAR Adult Pet of Week - Keelie and Ethyl

Tri-County Animal Rescue has two beautiful Beagle girls named Keelie and Ethyl as our Adult Pets of the Week. Keelie is 3 years old, weighs about 30 pounds and is a Beagle/Pug mix. She gets very protective of “HER” people so no small children. Ethyl is a senior lady and enjoys the laid back retired lifestyle. She is a sweet old girl that just wants a quiet home. Both have short hair so grooming is a bath and towel dry. Both are spayed, current on vaccines and micro-chipped. Please come meet our girls this Saturday at PetSmart.

Beagles are clowns at heart, but they carry themselves with dignity. They are playful dogs, ready and able for games, but they are also lovers, and must be close to their humans. Beagles love to be the center of attention, and are heartsick if ignored. Personality-wise, Beagles are happy and affectionate, loyal and charming, playful and mischievous. They are very intelligent, however, they can be willful, which makes training challenging.

If you are looking for an addition to your family, please come out and meet our pets this weekend. We have many available pets at the Gastonia PetSmart located at 3698 East Franklin Boulevard this Saturday noon to 6 pm. More...
