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 Buddha & I'm a very friendly 8-year old male beagle. I'm good with other dogs & cats! My hind legs are paralyzed due to a back injury. I also have a neck injury. I weigh about 30 lbs. My people have to carry me outside & support me while I potty. I bark when I need to go outside. Right now, I'm on "bed rest" until early/mid Feb. After that, I will be neutered. Nittany Beagle Rescue is looking into getting me a cart for after I'm off of bedrest. I can't wait! Also, Nittany Beagle Rescue will be consulting with a veterinarian who specializes in integrative methods to see whether I would benefit from some of their services like acupuncture & an underwater treadmill. I'm a very happy fellow & I'm in a great foster home who can take care of me as long as needed - so no worries there! I like to cuddle next to my person when sleeping on the couch! I need to be crated when I'm in a car - otherwise, I try to move around a lot. I am available for adoption once I'm a little better. You can see more photos of me on my PetFinder page:



Hi! My name is Jack! I need a home because my person passed away. I'm playful & I love to have my belly rubbed! I also love to cuddle with my people, & with the other dogs in the house! But I'm also ok hanging out by myself. I'm full of energy! I'm a very smart fellow & I learn quickly! I know how to sit & shake! I've been in a foster home for a month or so, & I'm doing great! Before that, I had lived all my life with other beagles outside as a hunting dog. But I LOVE being part of a family! I'm in a foster home with a 2.5 year old child, & I do great with him! I also get along great with the other dogs & cat in my foster home. I might chase a cat when I first meet them, but then I stop after a day or so. I would love a home with a securely fenced yard since I love to run & play outside. I especially loved the snow this winter! I'm good on a leash - but I am a beagle so I'll pull on the leash & I'm quite strong. I'm housetrained & crate trained. When no one is home, I go in a crate - just toss a treat in the crate & I'll go right in! Please think about making Jack part of your family! Jack is about 8 years old & weighs about 35 lbs.

Lucy Lu

Hi! I'm Lucy Lu, & I'm a very sweet female beagle mix. I'm about 4 years old. I originally came from a shelter in Virginia, but then I stayed with another rescue for bit before coming to Nittany Beagle Rescue. Lucy was in a foster home with the rescue that brought her from VA. Lucy seems to be a confident dog & doesn't seem to be timid. Lucy is crate trained, but still needs work on housetraining. Lucy likes to sleep in her crate, although she will whine/scratch before settling down. Lucy likes to climb furniture & puppy gates! So while NBR prefers a home with a fenced yard, the fencing cannot be chain link or anything she can climb out of. Lucy loves going for walks, but being a young dog she is also very energetic. Lucy is strong and pulls fairly hard on the leash. She is somewhat reactive to bigger vehicles on walks, but can be re-focused fairly easily. Lucy is very gentle for the most part. She will sometimes growl/nip if awoken/startled from sleeping. She doesn't like to be told 'no'. She can be possessive with high value treats, like bones or pig ears, but she doesn't show any food aggression with people with her meals. She will be placed in a home with no children or older children who know her boundaries. We prefer to place her in a home with no other dogs or cats. NBR recommends that Lucy's adopter work with a professional trainer to help her become a well-adjusted dog. Lucy is spayed & up-to-date on vaccines. Click on her page to see another photo of her.
