“Phat Andy - adopted

More articles by »
Written by: Erin

This mature Beagle Boy is good old Andy, or “Phat Andy”, as we like to call him. I’ve never met and Andy I didn’t like: Andy Blaco aka “Big 5′er” was one of my best friends and “body guards” as a kid and Andy Skow is my Pop, number one fan and greatest supporter. The point is that all Andy’s seem to be awesome and our new Andy is no exception. We were hoping that we’d find Andy’s family by now but it appears as though he was dumped. Its been two weeks now and no sign of a distraught family. Surprising too, because he is an absolutely sweet dog that is as lovable as they get. His family may have duped him but he’s with us now and is sure to find a spectacular forever home! He’s about 7 years old and over weight, but he’s on the Marley’s Mutts weight plan now which is sure to get him slimming down quickly and in bathing suit form before the summer. Not much more to Andy that I haven’t alluded to: he’s great with other dogs, loves people and , for a beagle, is very quite. If you are interested in adopting Phat Andy, please head over to or email me directly at
