Tasha, the Dog of the Day
Name: Tasha
Age: Six years old
Gender: Female Breed: Beagle
Home: Clayton, North Carolina, USA
   This is Tasha, my Beagle, adopted four years ago from the NC Beagle Rescue. Tasha was about two then, had had two litters of puppies, been in three foster homes and was extremely fearful. When I saw her little face on the site and nursing her puppies, I knew the "little mama" was for me.

    This picture was taken the week she came home; that cautious expression is gone and although she can still be timid around strangers, she has come a long way. The day she walked into my house, she immediately walked over and curled up on a quilt I had placed for her, as if she belonged. One of the unique things about her is a little quirky bend in her tail from a past fracture; it keeps her from raising the tail up straight, but that doesn't stop her from wagging it away, cuddling with me and giving me plenty of kisses. Her favorite thing is to "go bye-bye"; she bounces around and practically steps into her harness herself when I tap the floor.
