The Rescue Dog’s Adoption Story

The abandoned beagle, after being discovered wandering in woods in 2015, was placed in an animal shelter in Mt. Sterling, Kentucky. He was transferred to A Dog’s Dream Rescue centre in Ontario. Caring rescuers drove him over 500 miles there, taking turns to drive the vehicle. Consequently, he was to be placed up for adoption. Certainly, he was just days from being put down, when Megan Markle discovered this lucky pup on a Pet finder website.

Thinking that a beagle, known for being a gentle and energetic breed would be well suited to her, she emailed the rescue centre.  At their request, she filled in an application form online.  As a result, Megan was allowed to adopt Guy, and they formed an adoring bond with each other.

Due to his “pawper to proper” life changes, the lucky dog is having a light-hearted children’s book written about him.
