Nellie the beagle has a new name and needs a new owner
Well, the happy ending didn’t last long. Four days later, Nellie escaped again. Fortunately, she found her way into kind hands at North Oak Animal Hospital, where Susan Johnson is the practice manager.
Nellie showed up in our parking lot in January and ran up to one of our staff as they were taking the trash out. She was immediately brought inside and put in our isolation ward and given a good dinner. She was thin and looked older than we thought at the time. We let her rest a few days, then vaccinated her and ran all the other tests.
Because her original owners have not claimed her, Nellie, now known as Abigail, is available for adoption to a new family.
The North Oak staff has grown attached to sweet Abigail, who is estimated to be 6 or 7 years old and is friendly with all people and dogs and doesn’t bark much.
Mrs. Johnson says although the clinic is not equipped to handle strays consistently, Abigail will remain there until someone agrees to foster her in their home or adopt her forever.
She seems content to lay on her quilt in her run pen but quick to get up when we walk back to the kennel area. She is current with all vaccinations which is: Rabies, DHPP, ITT. She had a fecal done twice plus a negative HW check and is on Heartgard monthly. She is bathed as needed and loves her baths.
Abigail’s adoption fee will be the cost of her vaccinations. The clinic will provide six months of free heartworm preventative.
If you or someone you know is interested in meeting Abigail, contact North Oak Animal Hospital at 816-436-4400.
