Photo: Beanny is a young adult female Beagle - Hound mix. She is a happy and friendly dog with some neurological issues that cause her to have an irregular and wobbly gait. This condition is worse when she is stressed, so we think she would so best in a quiet household. Beanny can be food aggressive, so she needs a home with no small children. She can walk on a leash at a slow pace. Beanny is looking for a nice quiet family willing to have patience with a special needs pet.
