“For some strays, we can only assume how they come into our care... however lately Buttermilk has shown staff just how she probably ended up with us,” the shelter wrote alongside the clip that has already racked up more than 100,000 views in just a few days.

 

Naughty Beagle Buttermilk

For some strays, we can only assume how they come into our care... however lately Buttermilk has shown staff just how she probably ended up with us. Whoever adopts this cutie is going to need to keep a regular eye on her! She may be tiny but she is MIGHTY and has super climbing powers! **NO BEAGLES WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS VIDEO** Buttermilk was not harmed in any way from her climb and staff gave her a prompt exam afterwards. She also was moved into a different style kennel to prevent her from continuous climbs and escapes. Her stay won't be long in that kennel as she does in fact have an approved adopter who will be picking her up after her spay surgery this week!

After checking her over thoroughly, volunteers determined the amateur escape artist was unhurt, and moved her to a kennel that can contain her mighty super powers.

Luckily for Buttermilk, she won’t be caged in for much longer. Emily Glickman, a caretaker at the shelter told USA Today that the bold beagle was claimed by an adopter days before her viral feat. Her new owner plans to take her home after her spay surgery. We hope that wherever she’s going it has a big backyard with a very, very high fence!
