Update - 7 November 2017: Little Mercy is a special girl with special needs. Mercy would do best in a home with a single person or a couple that can give her the patience and attention that she needs. She's fearful of strangers but is fine with the people she knows and trusts. She's quiet, fairly low key and does well with other dogs (at least we know beagle size and smaller) and loves to play with puppies. She has a scar over her left eye and has had prior hip surgery; she has been through a lot and obviously had a home at one time. She has the potential of becoming a wonderful companion for someone but she may not be as social with strangers. Her new home must be mindful enough to keep her and everyone out of harms way.
Mercy is a 5-year-old spayed female beagle mix who is fully vetted and looking for a foster home. She weighs around 15 pounds. She is very sweet and friendly once she gets to know you. She was pretty frightened when we first got her, but now she is very friendly and comes to our kennel manager with her tail wagging. She also did well at the vet's office. She is sweet, low key and would probably do best in a quiet, low key home. Mercy was a stray at the Madison County Animal Shelter in Virginia, so her history is unknown.
