Hershey was adopted in 2007 from the Atlantic Veterinary College in Charlottetown PEI. She was used for 6 or 7 years by the students, helping them learn on a live animal. She had one major surgery done (Ovariohysterectomy), and a number of minor surgeries. From her time at the school, living in a kennel with other beagles, she comes as an older, fairly untrainable dog. But she's really sweet, and darn cute. And compared to a puppy that we've been looking after, she's actually really well mannered. She only rarely eats any of my clothes anymore!
