Soon after Kirk came to Tampa Bay Beagle Rescue, his foster family noticed that he was having accidents, even after a long walk. Lab tests showed nothing was wrong, but his fosters persisted and convinced the vet to take an x-ray. 

The results shocked us all. 

Kirk suffered a serious displacement fracture of his tail; perhaps the worst we have ever seen. Part of the reason this was slow to be detected is because Kirk is a happy, wiggly snuggle bug! We can only imagine the initial pain of this injury and it is most likely the reason he found himself in a kill shelter in central Florida.  Kirk is now in a foster home where he has access to a dog door and he is doing very well! We believe he still has the sensation of knowing when he has to defecate, but his sphincter muscle can't hold it for long. Having access to a dog door allows him to go out immediately and he is able to make it to the yard. We have noticed no issues with urination.


Kirk is a very friendly and affectionate young dog and will reward his family with love and snuggles. His stunning eyes and coloration aim straight for your heart. 

TBBR requires our adoptees to be inside dogs. If your yard is fenced with a dog door to allow Kirk the freedom he needs to be successful, please consider this handsome, loving dog. You won't regret it.
