Tootie is available for adoption at the Fauquier SCPA.

This week’s Fauquier County Pet of the Week is Tootie, a gorgeous 16-pound female beagle.

Tootie’s got some sass on her, says Fauquier SCPA shelter manager Alex Vacek, but she’ll cool it for some belly rubs.

“Tootie gets along with other dogs but she has to be introduced properly,” Vacek told FauquierNow via email. “When she first meets a new dog friend she likes to show them that SHE is TOP DOG but once corrected she's fine. She's a medium energy gal that is probably going to do best in a home with a dog that will allow her to be the boss.”

Anyone interested in Tootie should visit the shelter at 9350 Rogues Road, Midland, and meet her to see if she's a good fit.

There is a pre-adoption application that has to be filled out, and the approval process can take up to 48 hours. The application is not available online -- it must be filled out in person at the shelter.


"Pet of the Week'' is a partnership between FauquierNow and the Fauquier County SPCA (
