DANBURY, Conn. -- Looking to add a new "best friend" to your home?

Wags Doggie Daycamp & Boarding in Danbury, which occasionally has dogs up for adoption, is presently looking for a home for Thor, a year and a half-year-old beagle who retired from biomedical research in November 2016.

The BeFreegle Foundation takes in dogs, mostly beagles, from research facilities around the country and finds them forever homes.

Beagles are used in research because of their sweet dispositions and docile natures. Thor, said a spokesperson for The Foundation, is one lucky boy to be released so young and is quickly adjusting to life outside the lab.

As for his personality, he loves to play with his doggie friends, snuggle with the human staff, and amuse himself with toys. Everyone who works with him has said, "Oh, I wish I could take him home!" at least once. He's also been known to give hugs, as well as more than a few wet kisses on numerous occasions.

Thor is a dog and child-friendly dog. Go to for an adoption application.

Wags Doggie Daycamp and Boarding, in business since 2004, prides itself on its dog daycare and cage-free boarding. Located near Exit Two in Danbury, its facility includes two separate buildings with spacious indoor and outdoor play areas. The facility fosters two to three dogs a year from local shelters and encourages residents to call for updates.
