Hi! My name is J.J. I'm a 3-4 year old male beagle. I'm a happy & lovable guy! I love to be held & kissed. (I like to be held like a baby!). I'll give you lots of love back! I also like to play tug-of-war. I'm fine with older children (say 10-12 and older). I love lots of attention, and I would be happy in a home where the older children (and adults!) are able to give me lots of love! However, I'm not good with very young children. I seem to be possessive of my food with other animals. And so, I would prefer a home with no other dogs. I like to sleep in bed with my person & to hang out with them on the couch. I can be nervous at first in new situations. But if you give me lots of love & attention, I'll get over it quickly! I'm housetrained and neutered. I will stare at you when I need to go outside. I used to being home alone for 8 or 9 hours, and I'm fine. I've never been crated. If you are sleeping & I need to go out, I will put my paw on your arm. I do get carsick, and so I need a person who will leave me home when they do errands. Please think about making me part of your family! Click on my page to see me smiling!



Hi! My name is Murphy & I'm a 3-4 year old male beagle mix! I'm a very handsome fellow! I LOVE people! I'm good with children of all ages. I'm super affectionate! I also love toys, & I love to chew! I'm already housetrained and neutered, although it's not unusual for a dog to have a few accidents when he goes into a new home. I'm in a foster home, & I seem to be protective of my food and toys around other animals. And so I would do best as the only pet in a home. At this point, we think Murphy would do best in a home where someone is around most of the time. He becomes anxious if left alone. But once he adjusts to his forever home, he might do better being left alone. He is working on crate training in his foster home. Murphy will steal food (typical beagle!), and so if you have a young child who walks around with food, he might eat it! Murphy is great in a car! He just sleeps in the backseat. Murphy is available for adoption now. Please think about making him part of your family! He is in desperate need of a loving home who can give him the attention he deserves!

UPDATED DESCRIPTION! Shila has been with Nittany Beagle Rescue for a few months. During that time, she has lost a lot of her excess weight, and is a much healthier dog! She is an active 9-year old tricolor beagle. She loves to play with the medium & large dogs in her foster home! She doesn't really care to play with the small dogs. She is fine with the cats as well! Shila loves to be outside playing in the yard with the other dogs or just sitting in the sun! A home with 1 or 2 other dogs that like to play, & a fenced yard would be best for Shila! She is affectionate & loving. Shila loves to be close to her person! She will sleep in bed with her person, & sit next to them on the couch. She does snore loud though! Shila will get into the garbage, but she leaves the food on the counter alone. Shila does have some separation issues when her people leave. However, if she is with another dog, it seems to help. Shila's prior owners reported that she was possessive with her food around other animals. However, the foster home hasn't observed any food possessiveness. When someone is home, Shila usually goes outside every few hours. But she can hold it for up to 7 hours. Shila does suffer from chronic ear infections, and so her new people must be prepared for the additional cost to care for them. Shila is spayed & up-to-date on vaccines. Are you the right family for Shila? If so, please think about making her part of your family! Click on Shila's page to see a different photo of her!
