Also, [Application Pending] means the dog does have an application, but backups are welcome and [Adoption Pending] means the dog is in an adoptive home on the trial period, but has not yet been adopted so we will still accept applications until the adoption is finalized.

Foster or Adoptive Home Needed

Halas

Halas is a young, people-oriented beagle who loves to lay in the sun and spend time with his people. He is house broken, he knows sit, and to give you both his paws. He is gentle with everyone, including kids, and all of his back is ticklish. He will do best with a family that is around more than less, as he has some separation anxiety, although he has been doing better since he started crate training. Halas will benefit from a stable situation and consistency with crate training. He can be vocal, so is not a good candidate for an apartment situation.

TBone

TBone is a young energetic small beagle. He is looking for a family that likes a lot of walks, playing fetch, and teaching him new tricks. Tbone craves a lot of love and obviously likes to be with the family at all times. He has a strong personality and knows what he wants; if he rather not do something (ex. go outside) he may get snappy, so we recommend he does not live with small children. His foster family will be working with a trainer to help control this behavior.

He is a very social dog and enjoys other dogs and cats. He is working on his manners and tends to like to jump up on people and the counters, but he is learning quickly. He loves his crate at night and has figured out how to keep it clean. He occasionally has accidents indoors, but is working on the problem.

Tbone deserves a loving home with a lot of attention and love!

Raspberry

Raspberry aka Raz is a small 4 year old beagle who just loves to lay on the couch. He's sharing a home right now with a bullmastiff boy and Rhodesian ridgeback girl and gets along great with both. He is on meds to prevent seizures – alas seizures are very common in beagles and usually very well controlled with meds. He has been fine with the children in his foster home, but it is clear he'd prefer to be in a family with older, or very calm, younger children. Raz is a sweet little guy who has endeared himself to his foster family, but is ready for a home of his own.

Cleatus (Cleo)

Cleo is a very sweet beagle mix with a lot of love to give. He and his foster brother Max were rescued from a very high kill shelter with only one day left.

Cleo is a snuggler and would spend all day on your lap if you let him. He LOVES attention and will steal it if he has to! He adores people. He is a huge fan of belly rubs and will lie on his back in your lap just so your hand can rest on his tummy.

He gets along very well with other dogs and children. He does NOT like cats, so his perfect home will be cat-free.

Joey

Joey is a 10 years young beagle/cocker mix looking for his forever home! Don't let his age fool you; he's still an energetic dog who can chase a ball for hours. Joey's previous owner raised him since he was a puppy, but unfortunately had to go to a nursing home when she could no longer take care of him. Joey craves attention, loves to snuggle, and is an excellent lap dog. He's used to being the king of the castle and will need a patient and loving home willing to work with him and his strong sense of ownership over toys and treats. He is house trained, walks well on a leash, gets along well with dogs and cats, and would do best in a home with no children.


If you're looking for an energetic and lovable dog, Joey might be the guy for you!

Snoop

Snoop is a sweet guy that always wags his tail when you walk into the room. He has been having lots of fun playing chase and tug with his foster brother and sister. His favorite game to play is tug with his foster sister, and the winner gets the toy and gets chased through the house by the loser. He is well behaved and has not had any accidents in his foster home. He also responds well to a spray bottle if he needs to be corrected. He loves to be petted, and if he sees one of the other dogs being petted he will make sure to come over and get his turn. He sleeps soundly through the night, probably because he needs the energy for the next fun day with his siblings and people.


We haven't had him around cats or kids but think based on his personality that he would be fine. Snoop is heartworm-positive but will be treated and good as new after his recovery period. Snoop will make a great friend and companion for the right home!

Mandy

Mandy is a harrier mix, 2-3 years old. She stands taller than your typical beagle, long and lean, a beautiful body. When Mandy was first pulled from a shelter, she was unable to use her hind legs due to a probable spinal cord injury. After two days of receiving laser therapy and meds, she was able to walk and even run a little. It seemed miraculous! She continued on a laser therapy regimen and improved a great deal, though her gait is still a bit stilted. But that sure doesn’t stop her, as she rips around the yard chasing squirrels and playing with other dogs in the household! Mandy needs heartworm treatment, which is scheduled for mid-July, and she should be ready to resume normal activities after a 4-6 week recovery period. In general her quality of life is very good and vets believe she can have a good, long, healthy life.

Mandy is a very sweet girl, quite the cuddler, sometimes a little shy when first meeting people, but quite devoted to the people in her life. Mandy has a bit of a serious demeanor, which is somehow enchanting. She gets along fine with other dogs, though not trustworthy around cats. She is housebroken and great in the crate. She enjoys having a yard, but would probably also do fine in an apartment setting, since she is not much of a barker. We don’t know anything about Mandy’s life before she came to Hound Rescue, but she was a great save. Now she just needs that very special forever family!

Patriot

Patriot is your basic good, friendly beagle boy. His foster mom reports that he is very affectionate. Patriot loves being outside and has a great deal of fun romping around the yard with the two dogs in his foster home, then chilling out in front of the TV on his favorite dog bed. He is scheduled for heartworm treatment in late July, then should be good as new after a 4-6 week recovery period. Patriot will be happy to find his perfect home!

Please note, a high speed camera may be needed to capture Patriot's extremely happy tail wagging!

Referral Listing, Not a Hound Rescue Dog

Peppermint

This is Peppermint. He is a 5 month old beagle mix. He loves swimming (he was doing just that before his photo shoot!), playing with canine friends, and gets along well with all children (not a jumper!). He is also cat and chicken friendly, and would do best in a fenced yard as he is not very familiar with leashed walks (we're working on it though). He will be fully vetted and neutered, and a contract, interview and adoption fee will be required to make sure he goes to a good home. He will be a large dog when he is fully grown, and with a lot of love to give!

Peppermint is a courtesy listing and is NOT a Hound Rescue dog. If interested, please email alyssacarrington@yahoo.com for additional information.
