Lou. After our first beagle had passed away (the first day of my senior year of high school), my family said that we were never getting another dog. Well, that changed once we saw Lou. The reason we went to go look at him was because his name was originally Ben, a beagle, and two years old, which was our old dogs name, breed, and age when we had adopted him. We went to look at him at the Hinsdale Humane Society, and we fell in love. So we adopted him the next day. He was scared when we had adopted him. He had opened up to us and got comfortable with us. His favorite thing to do is go for walks and play squeaky ball. He has so much energy and loves to run. He is part beagle and Australian cattle dog. Lou spent my senior year at Whitewater living with me at my house. He acts like a therapy dog. He loved seeing me after class and comforted me after a rough day. Lou was the best thing that happened to me.
