My wife and I were hoping to find a beagle for adoption to love and share our home with. We found Safe Hounds Beagle Rescue when looking at the available beagles for adoption online at Petfinder. We looked at Safe Hounds Beagle Rescue's website and saw pictures of two beagle mix dogs, one named Emily and the other Francesca. We immediately filled out an application. We were contacted by Karen Philhower at Safe Hounds Beagle Rescue and set up a place to meet her with both dogs. We were introduced to Francesca and Emily separately and spent time with them. It was difficult to decide between the two dogs because they are both really lovable dogs, but we decided to adopt Emily. We came home with Emily (now named Maddie) along with a wonderful starter kit from Karen containing DVDs on dog training, her micro-chip, a heart worm pill, health records, vacination records, lots of literature, just to name a few things. Karen has always been available to us whenever we have a question, and we have kept in touch by phone and email. It is obvious to us that she really loves and gives wonderful care to the animals she rescues. We absolutely love Maddie (Emily). She is the sweetest and most loving dog you could ever meet. And she really makes us laugh. Thank you Karen Philhower and Safe Hounds Beagle Rescue for making our lives complete. Ian and Pat Goodman
