Yesterday, I had the pleasure of spending a few hours with Atlanta Beagle Rescue. I reached out to them when I moved back to Atlanta last summer. They welcomed me with open arms. I shot an event for them at Sweetwater Brewery several months back and it was a HUGE turnout. (Well, there was really good beer involved so... but, still! People did bring their dogs and they raised a lot of money!)
Since being back in Atlanta, I must admit, I haven't been as active as I should. (That is literal and metaphoric, BTW.) Some changes are happening in my life and, I think, grabbing my camera will be just what I need to get my creative juices flowing again.
Fast forward to yesterday. I saw that there was a meet and greet at a local Pet Supplies/Grooming place, so I thought I would get off my tush and offer to shoot some pictures. They happily let me and what a day it was! Three, THREE of the Beagles were adopted! Out of the 4 that were there! I feel like that is some sort of record but the ABR ladies seem total chill about it. (Although, I did spy a few high fives before I left.)
So, without further ado, here are the adopted pups. And the one still looking for her forever home. She's a total sweetheart!
Above is Munchkin. Beagle/Doxie mix. She is a lover. You could fit her in your pocket! And a lovely young family did just that.
Rosie, as you can see, is a tripod. Not that she knows that. After having her leg removed two months ago, she has been front wheel drive ever since. A pure Beagle with a hound dog nose to boot. Her new family was patient and kind and so happy to welcome her into their home. Her foster dad was sad to see her go so, Boone (seen below) tried to make him feel better.
He may have succeeded.
Boone (above) is one of the most beautiful Beagles I have seen. (Excluding my Zuzu, of course.) I did not get the chance to meet her new family but the images of them this morning on ABR's Facebook page looked like everyone was very happy.
Now let's get to the senior girl who wasn't adopted. Lottie (below). She has been with her foster dad for 9 months now. She came to ABR severely overweight but has lost a lot of it so far. She is such a sweet girl! If you need someone to lay with you on the couch, this is your Beagle.
Seriously, how can you resist that face?
I'll close with a few more pictures of Beagles that stopped by to say hello and just some fun random images of the 2 hours spent with them.
I look forward to spending more time here. Stay tuned!
