BCFS is happy to announce that exactly three months after we rescued 4-year-old beagle cross Trixie, she’s found her forever family!

Happy Tails for Trixie: her freedom ride to her new home, clearly glad to be adopted!
What a difference from Trixie’s fearful nature on her arrival at BCFS. Trixie came to us on a snowy January evening after being abandoned in a crate for three days with no food or water.
Though she was fearful, we saw hope for healing her spirit.
Trixie was especially afraid of men and new situations. But foster mom Tammy and her husband Chris patiently worked with Trixie to help her overcome her fears and socialize her. Trips to the dog park allowed Trixie to burn off energy and enjoy romping with other dogs.

BCFS’ foster care program allows rescued dogs the time and caring, relaxed home environments they need to find their forever homes. We work hard to match the right dog with the right family, and we think Trixie’s new family is perfect for her!
Trixie’s adoptive mom and dad have years of experience caring for rescued dogs and cats, and lots of room at their home for high-energy Trixie to run and play. They also have another rescued dog to give Trixie the dog companionship she enjoys.
Irene has the experience to help Trixie adjust to her new life, and the love Trixie needs and deserves.

Trixie’s new mom says Trixie made herself at home right away. She was comfortable with Irene’s husband and her mom and sister who popped in to meet her. Irene says Trixie was sleeping with her on the couch during the evening and is getting settled into her new home.
Congratulations and thank you to Irene and her husband on adopting Trixie! BCFS also thanks our dedicated fosters like Tammy and Chris who provide loving care, and help rescued dogs like Trixie become wonderful companion animals for their adoptive families. Fostering saves lives!
Happy Trails, Trixie!
