“We had a rescue beagle called Monty and he passed away about 3 years ago.
We decided it was time to get another rescue dog because my husband and I love dogs.
I asked for a rescue puppy for Christmas and my husband found Allie on Petfinder.
We were looking for a dog under twenty pounds and my husband probably put in beagle, because we like beagles.
Allie came up under Louie’s Legacy, a rescue shelter on Staten Island.
We filled out an application for her.
We passed the home interview and then got to meet her at a Petco on Staten Island where they were showing her and other dogs up for adoption.
Her litter mates had already been adopted.
She was the biggest of the litter.”
