Christmas puppies

December 18, 2013 

Lisa Sweeten and her son Matt Sweeten, of Lee’s Summit, admire beagle-terrier mix puppies that Chris Hatfield, of Lee’s Summit was selling out of his van Dec. 17. Hatfield said a friend needed to find a home for the full-blooded beagle female, so he offered to take her as a companion for his mixed beagle-terrier. The two are inseparable and she got pregnant. “I need to get her fixed, but I didn’t have the money,” Hatfield said. Humane societies recommend adopting puppies from shelters and suggest giving thought about their care and if they’re a good fit for a home before deciding to get a pet.
