Meet Beep

Meet Beep. She’s the reason I haven’t been super active on social media for the past few days. She’s my new baby girl.

She’s a rat terrier chihuahua mix (I think – she might be min pin). Beep has had a rough life but she has found her furever home with me!

My friend Carrie found Beep. Her owners took off her collar and encouraged her to run away last Friday. Carrie got her Sunday night. She had her microchip scanned and found the owners. They were disappointed that someone brought the dog back and signed her over to Carrie. She had been wandering around in the heat without food or water for 2.5 days. She was rescued from a puppy mill in Dane County last year. Her owners adopted her, but they neglected her over the past year. She needs a lot of love and training but I know we will make her life so awesome now.

Carrie has been calling her Beep and I think that name is hilarious so she’s keeping the name 😉

I’m really enjoying watching Beep’s personality emerge. She cracks me up every day. It’s hilarious to watch her realize what you do with a dog treat… or that it’s ok to play with toys.

If you’re interested in following Beep’s adventures, you can follow her on Twitter (like you didn’t think MY dog would be on Twitter):

  1. Congratulations, Amy! Beep is extremely cute. How LUCKY for her to have found you so quickly – that will be very helpful in the long run with rehab.

    You may have seen my dog, Hank – He’s an American Hairless Terrier which is actually just a hairless Rat Terrier! Anyway, he was a puppy mill dog who got dropped off at the shelter and then put in foster care for two months before we adopted him. He is extremely damaged, and it’s heartbreaking. However, he’s changed a lot since December when we brought him home. Then, he wouldn’t make eye contact and stayed in his crate with his back turned to us. Now he’s getting the hang of life. It’s really difficult but it sounds like she’s already in a much better place than Hank was, so you’re going to do well. Just keep exposing her to new things. That’s what works for us.

    I’m always here to talk about rescue dogs if you need it 😀

  2. It’s so great you were able to adopt Beep and give her the stability she’s been missing. She is incredibly lucky to have you, and I’m sure you feel the same way. Good luck to you all, as you enrich each others’ lives.
