Just before Thanksgiving, 40 beagles were rescued from a research lab in Spain and flown by the Beagle Freedom Project (www.BeagleFreedomProject.org) to America. Alexandra and Ian are fostering one of these beautiful but traumatized dogs. We have named him Javi (after Javier Gomez, a Spanish triathlete) and he is slowly coming out of his shell. He can now roam free after 4 years in a cage, and in the last week he has met his first cat and played with other dogs for the first time. Watch video about the Beagle Freedom Project.
