TailWaggers of the week: Beau & Joplin

Meet a couple of the many great companions available at our local animal rescue groups: Beau and Joplin.


Beau is a truly gorgeous boy who ended up at risk for euthanasia at the Pinal County shelter in August because of he was fearful. Beau has come a long way with the help of his foster, and now enjoys human interaction, but he is still a little shy with new people. Once he gets to know you he is an absolute sweetheart.

Beau needs a quiet home and patient person who will take it slow and continue to help him gain confidence. He has already gained a lot of self-assurance from his daily walks. He has lived with polite, older children and done well. Beau plays and interacts well with other dogs and would benefit from living and playing with a confident, easy-going dog. Beau is crate trained, housebroken and learned his "sit " and "down" commands very quickly. He very smart and treat-motivated so he is easy to train. He is now ready to become a part of his forever family.

Beau is neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on his shots. Interested in meeting Beau? Please contact Hard Luck Hounds Az at info@hardluckhoundsaz.org or call 520-261-7677.


Joplin is just one of the prettiest, fluffiest girls you could hope to meet. She is also a real sweetheart. It's hard to believe she waited alone for several months at the shelter.

Joplin is a calm girl with an average energy level who loves humans and will spend lots of time cuddling with you and being pet. She is great on a leash and really enjoys going for walks and car rides. She also gets along with other dogs! She had five different kennel-mates at the shelter and got along with all of them.

Joplin has very nice manners and has done well visiting pet stores and other public places. She has been around cats and older kids in her foster's neighborhood with no issues. She will make a great addition to her new family.

Joplin is two years old and in good health. She is house-trained, crate-trained, spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on shots. She is looking for a home where she will live inside as part of the family. Interested in meeting her? Please contact Hard Luck Hounds Az at info@hardluckhoundsaz.org or call 520-261-7677.

Save a life

Most Tucson animal rescue groups are small, volunteer-based nonprofit organizations that rely on the community to fulfill their mission to save animals' lives. Not only do they count on donations from the public to cover costs, they depend on people who are willing to open their hearts and homes to needy animals until they are ready for adoption. If you are interested in saving a life by becoming a foster, please contact a local rescue group today.
