Jack Jack and his two beagle siblings, Ralphy and Missey, were abandoned in an empty house.
A kind neighbor realized that they had been abandoned and called Arizona Beagle Rescue in to help. All three dogs were immediately brought to the vet ,where they were each given a full check up because we did not know how long they had been on their own without adequate nutrition and water. Given the situation, they checked out okay, but all three dogs had some health concerns that needed to be addressed.
Jack Jack had two large masses on his belly, and due to their size and location, the vets felt it necessary to remove them. Jack Jack is such a sweet pup, completely bonded with his beagle siblings as well as a kid magnet. Jack Jack tries to stay within arm's reach of his foster family's young boy at all times, and they sleep together almost every night. When we asked their foster mom for a quick summary of Jack Jack and his pack, here's what she had to say:
"Missey, Ralphy, and Jack Jack are 100% bonded - they cannot be separated. They check on each other throughout the day, and they will bark excessively if they are separated. They are an absolute team yet they each have their own personalities. All of them love the car and look forward to their Saturday trips to Dutch Bros for a pup-a-chino each week. Jack Jack is the love bug of the bunch, and he wants, actually demands, constant rubs and kisses. He would love to go to a family that has kids, because he thinks it's his personal responsibility to keep an eye on them!"
Jack Jack's surgery to remove the masses was successful. We couldn't wait to remove them as they were already five pounds and continuing to grow, and he was very uncomfortable. After some forced crate rest (and extra cuddle time), Jack Jack is quickly getting back into his usual routines. He spent one night at the vet recovering, and his canine siblings were very unhappy, running to the garage door every time someone came in or out, waiting for their buddy to return.
