Energetic Beagle Mix Finds Outlet Through Agility

MACH Gilly of Redwood MXB MJB OF owned by Marcy Jacobs of Godfrey, IL

Gilly, a six-year-old Beagle mix, was rescued by Hope Rescues in Godfrey, IL, where Marcy met her.

“She was full of energy, but knew very little in the way of house manners. So we practiced rally exercises at home and enrolled in agility classes to do something with that energy,” she said.

They both loved the sport of Agility, an obstacle course for dogs, and continued through classes and into competitions. Gilly earned the highest honor in AKC Agility – the Master Agility Championship – on Oct. 1, 2016, at their hometown club Greater St. Louis Agility Club’s event.

“Gilly has never met a stranger. She loves everyone. We have learned so much together.”
