Pet of the Week


When Beegee came to us, she was in need of help; she had a huge mammary tumor that had been left untreated and had grown to the size of a melon. Thanks to the doctors at the VCA Woodford Animal Hospital, she's now tumor-free, spayed, and on her way to her forever home! In spite of a lifetime of neglect, Beegee is the sweetest, gentlest dog you could ever ask for; she's eager for a little love and quick to make friends, and we're pretty sure she'll do just about anything if there's a treat in it for her. All it really takes to make her happy is a loyal friend or two who are willing to share their hearts with her...if you're that person, she'll be happy to return the favor. Come meet Beegee at our adoption center today or call us at 859 873 5491 to find out more about her!
