Potato the beagle goes to Comic-Con
SAN DIEGO, CA When a 2-year-old beagle named Potato arrived at Melissa Gudvangen’s home in Montrose, he wasn’t potty trained, couldn’t go up or down stairs, and couldn’t run. “He had never been outside on grass before; he hadn’t done anything,” Gudvangen said of the former laboratory test animal rescued by the Beagle Freedom Project. “It was like he was a newborn puppy.” Potato, also called Tater, has come a long way, and recently helped raise awareness about test animals at the “Peanuts” exhibit at Comic-Con International: San Diego.
