  • Stretch is a handsome boy, with a name to match his body type. This sweet boy is a two-year-old Basset Hound-Beagle mix, a unique combination of breeds that has left him with a long body. He loves a good romp around the play yard and – once his energy runs out – snuggling up and taking a nap.


    Alaqua is excited to announce we are running our “Homes for the Holidays” special where we have sponsored adoption fees for all of our dogs over six months of age. Our goal is to find a home for every dog that is currently at the Refuge by Christmas. All of the dogs will receive their spay/neuter, microchip and be current on vaccines.


    If you are interested in Stretch, please fill out an application online at We will then schedule a time for you to meet him.
