Bungie the Beagle Puppy ~ Adopted!

Bungie the Beagle Puppy ~ Adopted!

Oh gosh, if you could see Bungie, you’d just fall in love. He is a very handsome 3-month-old Beagle, just about 10 pounds. He was among the puppies that we rescued from the shelter in Athens, Alabama.
That was a very hard day. We knew we could rescue six puppies, but there were probably thirty there to pick from. Talk about Sophie’s Choice!!! Stephanie went through the shelter for me with her camera phone, taking photos of all the puppies so that we could decide together. It was heart rendering. I was talking to her about them when suddenly she said, “Oh my gosh! I just saw the cutest puppy I’ve ever seen in my whole life! I’ll call you right back!” *click* 


I wasn’t the least bit surprised when, the next thing I knew, she was e-mailing me a photo of Bungie. I’d seen a photo of him on the Facebook page. It wasn’t a very good photo, but it really struck me. Maybe it was his story…. You see, Bungie got his name because when he was picked up by animal control he had a bungie cord wrapped around his neck and caught in his mouth! Poor pumpkin! What kind of person does that???
So Stephanie e-mails me this photo of Bungie and of course I say yes, we have to save him. The following Monday he and several other dogs made the long trek from Alabama to Central Florida, arriving Tuesday at noon. I took one look at this fellow and I just had to grin! He wasn’t tired or anything. Heck no! He was rearing to go!!! Did mention he is a beagle puppy? lol
Bungie is a great little guy, very energetic and full of beans. He likes to wrestle with the other dogs, both big and small. He loves attention from people too. When I’m walking around the yard he likes to run along side hanging onto the cuff of my carpis. I’m sure we’re quite the sight!
You can see lots of pictures of Bungie on his facebook photo album. He is a joy!

November 11 Update:

Today was the day! Today was the day that Bungie found his forever home. Laura and her daughters Bianca and Chiara found Bungie’s photo on a Petsmart search site and they fell in love with him. The wonderful thing is that he fell in love with them as well. It’s hard to believe that just a couple of weeks ago he was in danger of being euthanized at a kill shelter in Alabama but today he headed off to a loving forever home. I know that they are all going to have great adventures together. Thank you to everyone who helped make Bungie’s rescue and transport possible. And thank you, Laura, Bianca and Chiara for giving him a forever home!
