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:



Hi! My name is Bonnie! I'm a very sweet senior hound mix! I adore people & I love to be petted. I'll even sit for attention & will give you my paw. I know 'sit', 'come', & 'go potty'. I'm so goofy when I'm happy! I'm a joy to be around! I love to hang out inside the house with my people. I like to roam around outside in fenced in yard - but I especially love to be inside & just lay around. I would appreciate a calm home at this point in my life. I've lived with other dogs, & I'm nervous at first, but then I get used to them. I sleep very soundly, & so I need a home where people or animals won't bump into me or jump on me when I'm sleeping. I'm housetrained & I'm used to being free to roam in the house when left alone. I can't do a full set of stairs, but I can climb 3 or 4 steps. I came from a shelter in the south (my people had to surrender me because they had health issues). I tested positive for heartworm, & Nittany Beagle Rescue will treat me for that. Please think about making me part of your family. I'm soooo sweet, you'll fall in love with me. I'm a loving companion & I'm anxious to find my forever home! Bonnie weighs about 41 lbs. & is about 12 years old. More photos:



Hi! My name is Bruno & I'm a 2.5 year old coonhound/lab/great dane/pointer mix. I'm a big boy! I weight over 60 lbs. & I'm too thin. I walk well on a leash except when I get excited, & then I pull. I'm extremely strong. I need a person with good dog handling skills. I'm the sweetest fellow! I love people! I want to make my people happy. I'm very energetic & playful! Afterall, I'm still a puppy. (I will tear things up - just like a puppy!) I love to play fetch, ball & tug-of-war! I love to run up & down stairs! I get excited around other dogs - sometimes I want to play, but other times I bark assertively at them. I have a big bark! I lived with a cat, but I wanted to chase him. I have a crate & I like to sleep in it. If you close the crate door & you get too close, I'll bark at you. But I'm OK if the crate door stays open. I bark at strangers if they come on my property. I have growled over a bone if you try to take it from me - so it's best not to give me one. I've never bitten anyone. I really am a great dog! Due to my size & strength, I need more obedience training before being around children. I'm basically housetrained. I'm used to going outside every few hours. I will stand near the door & look at you & whine when I need to go out. I ride well in a car if I'm in my crate. I know lots of commands! Please think about giving me a home if you are the right person for me! I'm neutered & up-to-date on vaccines. Click on my page to see another photo.



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:



UPDATED 5/4/2022 Hi! My name is Cooper & I'm a 16-month old male beagle. I'm an adorable little guy! I only weigh about 20 lbs., & so I need a very secure fenced yard (in case I decide to go under the fence). I'm really high energy, & so I need a home who can provide me with the exercise I need. I love to play tug of war, ball & fetch. I love lots of attention & I really want to be with people. When we're sitting together, I want to be right next to you or on you. I have a tendency to jump at people & demand your attention. So, I need a person who can help me develop better manners & build my self-confidence through proper training. I'll bark when left alone. Once I'm comfortable in my home, I'll only bark about 10 minutes when left. But before I'm comfortable, I might bark for hours. So I need a home where my barking won't disturb the neighbors. I love other dogs, & really want to run & play with them. I'm great with the cat & children in my foster home too! I'm housetrained & crate trained. I love to chew on my chew toys & nylabone/benabone! It's probably best to crate Cooper when he's home alone since he's a young guy & might get into things. Cooper is neutered & up-to-date on vaccines. Are you right for Cooper? If so, please think about giving him a forever home! More photos: ADOPTION PENDING.



Hi! My name is Daisy, & I'm an adorable 5.5 year old beagle! I'm very affectionate & loving! I love attention! I'm quite playful & very energetic! I love fetch & tug-of-war. I love having a fenced in yard, but it should be secure, or I'll dig underneath & get out. I will run out the door if I know it's open, so please make sure I'm secure before opening the door. I'm a typical beagle & so I don't come when called when outside. I've been around a cat & I just bark at her. I haven't lived with other dogs, but when I meet them on walks, I'm fine with them. I OK when left alone. (My prior family would leave me alone for 3-4 hours a few times a week). I'm very food driven & so I need a home with older children (10 years or older) or no children. In my prior family, if an adult dropped high value floor on the floor (like a chicken bone or a hamburger), all they had to say was "No! Daisy stop!" in a firm voice & I would stop moving towards it. I'm also fine with dry dog food. The 5-year old child in my prior home would give me my dog food & I was fine. I'm housetrained & crate trained. I'm used to being in a crate at night & when no one is home. If it's raining, I don't like to go outside. Sometimes I tinkle from excitement. I'm used to being crated in a car, & I ride well. I weight about 30 lbs. Are you the right person for me? If so, please send in an application! More photos:



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:



This beautiful 8-month old black & white beagle mix is the sweetest dog! Maverick is a very energetic dog - as young beagles are! So he needs a home who can keep up with him. He loves to play ball. He's also very affectionate & loving. He's been raised with children as young as 3 years of age & another dog. Maverick is housetrained & crate trained. He usually goes outside every 2 or 3 hours during the day, & he will go to the door when he needs to go outside. At night, he sleeps in a crate with a puppy pad. He's at that age where he chews whatever he can get hold of! So his new family needs to puppy proof their home & have constructive ways of dealing with the chewing. He also needs work on house manners (he'll get up on the table). Maverick rides well in a car. A family that has experience training young dogs is best for Maverick! Maverick weighs about 27 lbs. Are you the right home for Maverick? If you think you are, please send in an application! Click on Maverick's page to see a different photo!



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 Scout! I'm a 7-month male beagle. I'm a puppy so I'm super energetic! I'm a young guy, so I really want to run & play & jump! I also like tug-of-war, ball & fetch. I'm an affectionate guy & super sweet! I've been raised with children who are 1 year old, & 4 & 5 year olds. While I'm a super sweet guy, I'm too rough for children that young. I'm at that age where I need a lot of very consistent training. I like to be outside, but I really want my people to be with me. I'll talk at you when I need to go outside to potty. I'm also crate trained! When my people leave the house, I should be crated since I'm a puppy (I'll destroy things if I'm not). I will bark in the crate for awhile, but then I stop. At night, I sleep in my crate, & I do very well! I love having a fenced yard, but I'm a digger. So I need a home where there are barriers that keep me from digging out under the fenced yard. I don't have to go to a home with a fenced yard, as long as my people are really active & take me for lots of walks & runs every day (on-leash, of course!) I'm very good with the other dog in my foster home. I'm a vocal guy & I have a good loud beagle howl! I get car sick, so I'd rather stay at home than go on errands with you. I'm already up-to-date on vaccines & will be neutered before I'm adopted. Are you the right for me! I'm anxiously waiting for my forever home to make me part of the family!

AVAILABLE 4/18/22! Hi! I'm Sky, a beautiful 8-year old female tricolor beagle. I'm an easygoing & loving girl! I love to chew on stuffed animals! I also like to play fetch & tug-of-war. Once I get used to my new home, I'm OK if you're away all day from the home (8-9 hours). But it can take a few weeks for me to get used to it. I'm housetrained & crate trained. Once I'm used to my new home, you can let me be free in the house when no one is home. When my people are home, I like to go outside every few hours. I will pace when I need to go outside. I like to sleep in bed with my people at night. But sometimes I prefer to sleep on the dog bed next to my people's bed. I will tree & track animals - so it's critical that I always be on leash or in a securely fenced in yard when outside. I'm good with older children who are calm (say, 8 years & older). However, I don't like to be around small children - especially active ones who get in my space. I'm good with cats. I was living with another beagle for awhile, & there were some problems. So I might be best as an only dog. (Big dogs scare me.) I'll growl if you mess with my food. I'll also growl over toys but I'm being playful when I do that. I would love a calm home where my people love & adore me! I'll adore you right back! I weigh about 32 lbs. If you think you're right for me, please consider making me part of your family.
