Beau - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Paws for a Cause, Inc., New Brighton, MN.

This is Beau. He is a ten-year-old gorgeous blond labrador who committed his life to one family. At the age of ten, his family decided they were too busy to take care of him anymore - he had too much energy, demanded too much time.

Beau came in to our rescue in late September and a local senior facility contacted us about him. After performing a home visit for them, we brought Beau out to visit.

With forty residents, fifteen staff and even a resident cat to play with, Beau's tail started wagging from the moment he walked in the door. His first ride on an elevator was taken with grace and bashful aplomb. Now he waits at the elevator door when he hears the chime; he loves his rides.

Beau was adopted by this center and now has miles of corridors to walk, sixteen common rooms to "police" and more friends than he can wag a tail at.

He assigned himself a job on his very first night there and now accompanies the night med nurse on her rounds. He takes this very seriously.

Gorgeous Beau -- we wish you all the best in your new forever home. You're an amazing example of a companion pet.
