Beau means beautiful or handsome in French, and that's just what this Beau is! Approximately two years old and a Hound mix, he entered the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on December 15th. Beau was a shelter favorite. He was used to test other dogs' temperament because of his personality. We're not sure how or why he ended up in the shelter, but as both a Hound and heartworm positive, his life was at risk at this small rural shelter.
