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.

Abby

Hi! My name is Abby, & I'm a 12-year old female tricolor beagle. My owner recently passed away, & so I'm looking for a new forever home. I'm nervous in new situations. And strange dogs seem to make me nervous also. I would love a home where I'm the only dog, & where my person is home all the time so I can get lots of pets! I lived with 2 cats, & my sister Lizzie, who is also available for adoption. Lizzie & I are in the same foster home, but we don't really spend any time together, and so my foster mom thinks it would be fine if we went to different forever homes. I am housetrained. But I don't really tell you if I need to go outside, so you just have to put me outside every 3 or 4 hours. I'm a good size girl, & it would be good if I lost a little weight. My ideal home would be a calm home where my people were home all or most of the time & I got lots of attention, & I was the only dog. I have not been around children, and so I will not be placed in a home with children or one where children come often to visit. Also a home with no stairs, or just a few steps would be best. My photo is coming soon!

 

Girlie

Good things come in small packages: Girlie is no exception! Girlie is a petite & sweet 4-year old speckled beagle. She is very timid & needs reassurances that people will love her. With patience & consistency Girlie will learn about all the pleasures of being a beloved house dog. She has made tremendous progress since being in her foster home. She loves belly rubs! Girlie likes the security of her crate but enjoys the sofa too! She is very calm when she is with her people. Girlie gets along well with other dogs & cats. However, she is dominant & does not like to share her person with other dogs when sitting next to her person on the couch. Girlie originally came from a shelter in the South. We don’t know what type of life she had before being rescued, but it probably wasn’t good. We would love to place Girlie in a home that is experienced with shy or abused dogs, but it’s not required. Girlie will eventually adjust if her people are patient & provide her with the security she needs. She needs a home with a fenced yard. She likes to dig so the fence needs to be set up to stop her from digging underneath it. A home with children 8 & older who are experienced with dogs should be OK. But loud sounds startle Girlie, so a calmer home would be best. Girlie is already housetrained, crate trained & spayed. She is looking for a caring & compassionate home that will help build her confidence & understand she is a bit shy when meeting new people. Could she be the Girlie for you?

 

Lizzie

Hi! My name is Lizzie, & I'm a 12-year old female tricolor beagle. My owner recently passed away, & so I'm looking for a new forever home. I'm a little nervous in new situations. I would love a home where my person is home all the time so I can get lots of pets! I really like to be close to a person all the time. I lived with 2 cats, & my sister Abby, who is also available for adoption. Abby & I are in the same foster home, but we don't really spend any time together, and so my foster mom thinks it would be fine if we went to different forever homes. I am housetrained. But I don't really tell you if I need to go outside, so you just have to put me outside every 3 or 4 hours. My ideal home would be a calm home where my people were home all or most of the time & I got lots of attention. I'm fine with other dogs & cats. I have not been around children, and so I will not be placed in a home with children or one where children come often to visit. Also a home with no stairs, or just a few steps would be best. My photo is coming soon!

 

Shila

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!
