Hikers Rescue Abandoned Beagle They Heard Crying In Shed

Brian May and Chase McKinnon were hiking in the woods near Bridgewater, Massachusetts, when they heard a dog whimpering. They followed the cries for help and found an abandoned beagle locked in a shed.

Apparently, there used to be a beagle club located near the shed. However, that does not explain how the dog got there or how long she was left alone. The men broke into the shed and rescued the sweet girl. The only thing in the shed with her was a bowl of rabbit food.

The beagle was taken to Bridgewater & East Bridgewater Animal Control. They posted on Facebook, “This sweet beagle was found in an abandoned shed in the woods off of Lakeside Drive. The shed was located where the beagle club used to be. She is a good weight and seems healthy.”

Animal control officials believe she was left alone for at least a few days with only rabbit food to eat. Thankfully, Brian and Chase heard her cries and rescued her. Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Bridgewater Animal Control at 508-659-1290.

The sweet dog was named “Grace” by Brian, who also offered to help find her a home. Animal control posted, “Brian May thanks again to you and Chace! To me you guys are heroes. Do you want to name her?”

To which he responded, “my pleasure I was thinking grace ? And if no one claims her I might have someone looking to adopt her.”

She will be held for a few days to see if anyone comes to claim her. Otherwise, she will be put up for adoption.

Thank you to everyone involved in rescuing her. We hope she finds a loving home soon.
