UPDATE - 8 JUNE 2016: Our fabulous kennel caretaker has moved Mercedes and sister, Porsche, to her house. They are quiet while in their crates and keep their crates clean all night. Mercedes will come in and out of the house just fine but is still a little unsure and will attempt to hide under the table if you try to catch her. She is inquisitive and has snatched a note pad off the table that was too close to the corner to chew on. Outside, she will come up to you, let you pet her, take treats and catch her. She's coming around well. Although both are still a little unsure, they seem to be happy and adjusting.
Original info: Mercedes is the sister of Ferrari and Porsche. They were left in an outside cage at the Amelia County Animal Shelter after someone had called and said that 6 beagles came to their home. Mercedes is 6-8 months old. She is shy but has made improvement in the last few days. Mercedes wags her tail when I pet her and will seek my hand when I am nearby and petting her siblings. She will be available soon.
