Then, what happened in the book Shiloh?

Shiloh is about an eleven-year-old boy who finds a dog near his house in West Virginia. The boy, Marty Preston, wants to keep the dog and names him Shiloh. Marty thinks that the dog has been abused. He finds out that the dog belongs to his neighbor, Judd Travers.

Beside above, why did Marty name the dog Shiloh? He names him Shiloh, after the place where he found him. Despite Marty's pleas, his parents make him turn the dog back over to Judd Travers, whom Marty doesn't like at all. Judd is cruel to his animals. He keeps them chained up outside and deliberately keeps them hungry so that they will be better hunters.

Similarly, how did Shiloh the dog die?

Phyllis replied: Shiloh does NOT die in my series. Perhaps the fact that the real dog back in West Virginia, which inspired the series, died in 2000, gets mixed up with the dog in the book.

How does Shiloh get hurt?

Marty's Dad agrees to let him keep Shiloh until Shiloh is well, and then Shiloh will have to go back to Judd. He feels it was his fault Shiloh was hurt because he didn't make the pen tall enough. He also feels relieved because his secret is out in the open and he has time to figure out how he can keep Shiloh.

Did Shiloh die?

So, Shiloh is not dead; she tweeted on January of 2019 about 2019 being an amazing year for everyone. The Twitter account is linked to her official SoundCloud page, so the account seems to be genuine but just because she is sending tweets doesn't really mean she is alive.

Do beagles shed?

Beagles shed, but because their hair is short, it isn't too noticeable. Their coats tend to get thicker in the winter, so they shed more in the spring. They are clean dogs (unless, of course, they've found something appealingly stinky to roll in) and generally don't require frequent baths.
