Our Beagles!

Instructions on how to adopt a beagle from Nittany Beagle Rescue and the adoption application form can be found on the Adopt a Beagle page.


Hi! My name is Archer - but you can call me Archie! I'm a 3-year old male husky/doberman mix. I'm a big guy - over 80 lbs.! (Nittany Beagle Rescue took me because I was in a home with a beagle that needed rehomed). I'm a very handsome fellow! I'm really strong, & so I need a home where my people have some strength. I'm super friendly with people! I'm good with kids. But I would knock young children down, so it would be best if the children are older. I'm a very affectionate dog & love to sleep in bed with my people! I'm a playful fellow too! I'm already housetrained. (I don't really care for the crate). I need socialization training. I would do best as an only dog. I also chase cats, & so a home without a cat would be best. I'm already neutered & up-to-date on vaccines. If you think you are the right home for me, please think about making me part of your family! My photo is coming soon!



Hi! My name is Austin! But you can call me Auggie! AUSTIN is currently LOST. (He ran out the door of his home). He was lost in the general area of McDonald Rd. & Donnertown Rd. near Old US 220 & PA-164E outside of Duncansville, PA. If seen, please contact us at 814-883-6062. Austin is a very sweet 12-year old male beagle. His person passed away, & now he needs a new home. He just wants to be loved. He loves pets! He's a happy, sociable fellow! He's also easygoing. He likes to play ball! He's good with other dogs & cats. Austin is housetrained, crate trained & neutered. He just needs a new home who will love & take care of him in his golden years! He doesn't really respond well to commands - but that could be because he's a typical beagle or maybe he's hard of hearing. Please think about giving Austin a home! ADOPTION PENDING.


Bentley & Bella

UPDATED 05/15/2022 Hi! We're Bentley & Bella! We're available for adoption because our person didn't want us anymore. We need a foster home ASAP! We're very affectionate, loving & attentive dogs! We're both housetrained. We'll lay near the door or come to you & whine to let you know we need to go outside. We're used to being on the furniture, but we're ok sleeping on dog beds instead. At night, we sleep together on a dog bed next to our person's bed. We're very bonded! We like to kiss each other! We're fine with other dog & cat we lived with. We haven't been around young children, & so we need a home with children 10 or older, or no children. We'll follow our noses, so we need a home with a securely fenced yard, or to be on-leash when outside. We're used to going outside every 3-4 hours during the day, & we hold it fine all night. Bentley is Bella's dad, & he's about 9 years old. Bella is about 7 years old. Bentley loves to play with a ball (he'll let out a little growl if another dog tries to steal his ball). Bentley tore his ACL & needs a home without a lot of stairs - or his person carry him up & down. Bentley is about 25 lbs & Bella is about 35 lbs. They're already spayed & neutered! Please think about giving Bentley & Bella a loving forever home! They're such sweet things! You'll be happy you did! Bella has the blue collar in the photos. More photos:



UPDATED BIO! Hi! My name is Buddha & I'm a very friendly 8-year old male beagle. I love everyone - dogs, cats & children of all ages! I weigh about 30 lbs. & my hind legs are paralyzed due to a back injury. So people have to provide some extra help with things like going outside for potty. But I come with a great Help 'Em Up Harness to support me. I bark only when I need something. I also have wheels for when I go outside - so I can really travel! I haven't learned to potty while in my wheels yet - but I will learn eventually. I'm a very happy fellow! My favorite thing to do is to cuddle on the couch. I ride well in a car! I'm neutered & available for adoption! It would be nice if at least 2 people were home most of the time, just so you can take turns caring for me. But if only 1 person is home, that's OK also. Please help me find a home! You can see more photos of me on my PetFinder page:



Sorry! Applications for Buttercup are currently closed due to large number received. Please consider applying for one of our other wonderful dogs! H! My name is Buttercup & I'm a very sweet 1.5 year old beagle girl! I'm a very active & playful dog! I love to play with other dogs! I'm very attentive to my people, & I crave attention back! I'm fairly quiet for a beagle. I'm also quite loving! I love to play with toys & I will share my toys with others! (I love chew toys!) I lived with 3 other dogs & I'm great with all of them. I ride well in the car. I'm housetrained & crate trained, & I'm used to going outside 3-4 times a day. I will bark to let you know I need to go outside. I love to hang out on the furniture with my people! But mainly I want to run & play, so a home with a fenced yard would be best - or one where my person is very active & will take me for lots of walks & runs. I'm used to sleeping in a crate at night & can hold it fine for 7-8 hours. I've never been around children, but I'm a very friendly girl. So I could go to a home with children aged 7 or 8 years or older who know how to properly handle a dog. I'm already spayed & up-to-date on vaccines. Please think about making me part of your family! ADOPTION PENDING.



Hi! My name is Cubby & I'm a very friendly tricolor male beagle! I'm a young guy - only about 2 years old! I'm extremely energetic & active. I'm also a playful & friendly guy! I really like fetch, tug-of-war & ball. It's important my forever home make sure I get lots of exercise & play! I've been around other dogs when I stayed at a boarding kennel & I was good with them. I've been around children as young as 3. But I jump up on people, & I would knock smaller children down. I'm still in the chewing stage. Since I'm a beagle, if I get loose, I will take off. I was living outside in a fenced area during the day & a garage at night for the past year, & so I will need work on house manners (like counter surfing, jumping up on people & things) and housetraining. I was making good progress on housetraining before my prior family moved me outside. I was used to being crated before I was moved outside. I'm already neutered. Are you the right family for me? If so, please think about giving me my forever home! Click on my page to see another photo of me!



Hi! I'm Gallagher, a 6-year old male coonhound mix! I'm a big goofy guy! (I weigh about 85 lbs.!) I'm an affectionate fellow & love to be with my people! I'm also quite active & have a fair amount of energy, & so I really appreciate a fenced in yard. I like to chew on dog toys. I'm used to going outside every 4-6 hours during the day. If I need to go outside, I'll go to the door & wag my tail. I've never been crated since I'm good in the house when left alone. I don't really like traveling - it makes me car sick. I'll bark a little bit when you first leave the house, but then I'm fine. Sometimes I'll bark when I'm in a strange environment (like an RV camper). I've lived with a guinea pig & was fine with him. I'm not around other dogs much, but when the neighbor's dog approaches me, I want to play. I'm protective of my home & yard, but I'm OK if you let strangers come into the house. I'm already neutered & up-to-date on vaccines. I'm looking for my forever home! Are you it! I sure hope so! More photos:



Hi! I'm Gunner & I'm a 1-year old male beagle-basset mix! I'm adorable! I'm extremely energetic as young beagles mix are. I'm also very affectionate & sociable. I really like attention. I will cry when you leave me alone. But if you work with me gradually on that, I'm sure I will adjust to be being alone while you are away from me. I like to sleep in bed with my people, & to hang out on the couch with them. I have not been raised around children but I'm very friendly, and so I would probably be fine with children old enough to know how to treat an animal properly (7 or 8 years or older). I have lived with other dogs and a cat. I'm a bit much for elderly animals, but a home with younger animals would be fine. I love to be outside with my people! A fenced in yard or being on leash at all times when outside is required. If you exercise me with leashed walks, then you have to be able to make sure I get enough exercise. I'm housetrained, and I'm used to going outside every 3-4 hours. I'm not crate trained. I'm good in the car as long as I'm secured safely to the seat (I will cry off & on for about 20-30 minutes until I calm down). I will be neutered before I'm adopted. If you think you're right for me, please think about giving me my forever home! More photos:



Hi! My name is Puck & I'm a 9-year old male tricolor beagle. People who know me say I'm very likable & unforgettable! I'm quite smart! I know how to open lever doors & can get past safety gates. I can also open zippers on bags of dog food! I'm an affectionate, easygoing fellow. I like to cuddle with my people. I also enjoy playing fetch! I like to sleep in bed with my people at night. I love car rides! I'm housetrained. If I need to go outside, I go to the door & wait. If I'm waiting awhile, then I'll scratch at the door. My people work at home, so I go out about 4 times per day. If my people are out all day, I can hold it 8-9 hours. I'm a little growly if I'm in an uncomfortable situation. I can be possessive over food if I'm getting into something I shouldn't. Also, I can be possessive if I get something I shouldn't have. However, I do know the command "leave it." I live with another dog, & I'm fine with the dog. (I'll growl if the dog tries to take my toy, though). I will growl or snap if you step on me. Sometimes I'm possessive over my people & may growl if someone approaches. I currently live with a 17-month child, & I'm currently being crated when the child is walking around the house. Because I can be a little cranky sometimes, I need a new home without young children. I would probably be fine in a home with older children who know how to properly treat a dog. I'm neutered & up-to-date on vaccines. I'm anxious to find my new home where I can just relax & cuddle with my people, & hang out on the dog bed all the time! If you think you're right for me, please considering applying to make me part of your family! Click on my page to see a photo of me relaxing.



UPDATED 5/4/2022 Hi! My name is Roscoe! I'm a 2-year old tan & white beagle/boxer mix. I'm a great dog! I love to cuddle with my people on the couch! I also LOVE head scratches! (I'm getting a head scratch in my photo). I'm also active & affectionate! I love tug-of-war, ball & fetch! I'm good with other dogs. I will chase cats - but just in fun. I've lived with young children & I'm fine with them. I'm crate trained & housetrained. I like to go out 2-4 times per day. (I hate the cold & will hold it rather than go outside. But if it's not really cold, then I like to go out at least 4 times/day since I enjoy being outside.) I'll sit by the door when I need to go outside, then once one of my people see me, I'll jump at the door. During the day, I like to hang out on the dog bed or the couch. At night, I like to sleep in my crate. The best way to get me to do something is to praise me or give me a treat. When I meet a new person, I can be very timid & afraid of them. So I need a home where people will let me get to know them at my own pace, & where lots of strangers don't come to visit. If I'm in a corner, please leave me alone, otherwise I will nip. If strangers come to the house, you can put me in my crate. I ride well in a car. I'm afraid of loud sounds. I weight about 40 lbs. If you think you have the kind of home I need, please think about making me part of your family! More photos:



Hi! My name is Ruby & I'm a very affectionate & loving female beagle. I'm very playful - I love fetch, tug-of-war, & ball! I'm about 1 year old, so I'm a very high energy dog. I love to jump, & I can jump high - 5 feet or so! I'm also very fast, so you can't dare leave the door open or I might dash out. I'm at that stage where I chew everything! And I love to dig! I still need training in terms of jumping on people & puppy biting. I'm a true beagle - I love to sniff & will take off if not in a securely fenced yard. I'm not possessive over toys or food, but I will growl if you come near my bone. However, my foster family is working with me on that, & I'm getting better. I have not been around children. I live with a 9-year old golden retriever, but I'm a bit much for older dogs. I'm housetrained & crate trained. I go outside basically every hour, & I will go to the door & cry to be let out in my fenced yard. I like to sleep on the couch & I would love to sleep in bed with my people! I don't particularly enjoy car rides, & I'm quite rambunctious in the car. My foster family is working with me on that also. For some reason, I'm starting to become afraid of loud sounds on walks, like motorcycles, busses, & trucks. Bigger dogs scare me on walks too, although I live with a golden retriever. I know sit & lay down. I'm up-to-date on vaccines & am scheduled to be spayed the end of July. However, if Nittany Beagle Rescue finds a forever home for Ruby before that, we can work with the adopter's vet to have her spayed (assuming the wait time isn't too long). Are you right for Ruby? If so, please think about submitting an application! Ruby is small, about 20 lbs. To see more photos of Ruby, go to:
