Home found – Gimli

Gimli has found a lovely new family and is now settled. Thank you everyone who has shown an interest.

If you are interested in re-homing the gorgeous Gimli, please call Sandra Linton-Brown on 09 256 1268, or email raysandy@vodafone.co.nz

Beautiful 8 year old male beagle.

Gimli is currently in Birkdale, North Shore Auckland and can be fostered locally whilst searching for the right new home.

He has a gentle placid nature, brought up with 2 girls since a puppy, and is great with kids, and was also raised with 2 cats.

He has been well socialised with other dogs throughout his life.

He is a tricolor, and we got him as a 8 week old puppy from someone in Hastings who bred and I believe was prosecuted about a year after we got him for breading beagles for testing purposes.

No papers of course.

He does have a thyroid imbalance and is on medication the level, which he has morning and night.
