This is the story of Cara


Cara, a Shepherd/Beagle, was approximately 11 weeks old. Her mom, Babe, was dumped in the country when she was pregnant and taken in by some animal lovers. The couple cared for the dogs until they surrendered them to BCHS. Cara was very sociable, playful and affectionate. Cara was also bossy and liked to have things her own way.

Following is a letter received from the family who adopted Cara (they've re-named her Evie):


I hope this e-mail finds you well. I just wanted to give you a little update on Evie, the German Shephard/Beagle mix, we adopted from you in March (2009). She is doing great. She has grown so much since we adopted her. We adopted her at 3 months of age and just shy of 20 lbs. She is almost 11 months and is 56 lbs. She is the sweetest dog, very mild-mannered, and always wants your affection. She is still a little afraid of people but warms up to them quickly. In May, we put up a fence for Evie. She loves being able to freely go outside and enjoy the backyard. In September of this year, we adopted a sister for her. We saw Josie's picture and could not pass her up. Josie and Evie look very similar. Josie is only 7 months, but she is a Rotweiller/Shephard mix. They get along great. I am attaching a few pictures of Evie when we first adopted her and some now with her sister.

Well Wishes,
Danielle and Dustin White
