Buck

Hi! My name is Buck & I'm a very sweet 12-year old male beagle! I'm an affectionate & loving fellow! I'm also laid back & easygoing. I'm quite sociable! I love being next to a person & being petted! I have an independent streak to me - as most beagles do! I get along well with other dogs, & I seem to be submissive to other dogs. I've been an outdoor dog all my life, & I'm so happy to be in a foster home now! My foster family is working on housetraining & teaching me house manners. I'm doing great! I'm a very bright fellow & I'm adjusting to living in a home quickly! In fact, I love it! I really like cuddly toys & to bury my peanut butter-filled kongs in the sofa! I love sleeping on my dog bed! It's so soft! And I love all the attention I'm getting! Right now, I get overly excited when I'm around another dogs & I try to mount them - but as I get used to my new surroundings, Nittany Beagle Rescue expects that behavior to decrease. Please think about making me part of your family! I'm so worth it!

Buddha

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! I do need a foster home while I'm waiting for my forever home. 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: https://www.petfinder.com/dog/buddha-50179332/pa/west-decatur/nittany-beagle-rescue-pa98/

 

Lobo

Hi! My name is Lobo & I'm a super sweet 6-7 year old male beagle! I love to give kisses! I'm also very energetic. I lift my upper lips to "smile"! I've lived in an outdoor kennel all my life with Shakey (who is also available for adoption). But it's fine for us to be placed in different forever homes. I get along well with other dogs. I've never been around a cat, & I might chase one. I've never been around young children. Because of this, Nittany Beagle Rescue will place me in a home with older children or no children. I was trained to hunt rabbits, but I'm scared of loud sounds. So I'll probably be frightened during thunderstorms & fireworks. I'll take off hunting for bunnies if I get loose. It's extremely important that I either be in a securely fenced yard or on-leash when outside. Also, I need a home where the door to the outside is shut quickly so I can't run out. I'll need work on housetraining & house manners, but the folks at Nittany Beagle Rescue say it's easier to train an adult dog than a puppy. I can be nervous in new situations at first. I weigh about 24 lbs. I'm living in a boarding kennel right now & I'm anxious to find my forever home! Lobo is up-to-date on vaccines & will be neutered & have a dental before he is adopted. To see more photos of Loco, go to his PetFinder page: https://www.petfinder.com/dog/lobo-51688026/pa/west-decatur/nittany-beagle-rescue-pa98/ You can see a photo of Lobo smiling & showing all his teeth - just like people with big smiles!

 

Lucy Lu

UPDATED BIO! Hi! I'm Lucy Lu, & I'm a very sweet female beagle. I'm about 4 years old. Lucy is a confident & intelligent dog. She wants to learn & needs a job, like agility, obedience, rally or nose work. Lucy likes to sleep in her crate, although she will whine/scratch before settling down. Lucy likes to climb furniture & puppy gates! While NBR prefers a home with a fenced yard, the fencing can't be chain link or anything she can climb. 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 can be somewhat reactive to bigger vehicles on walks, but is easily re-focused. Lucy is very gentle for the most part. She will sometimes growl/nip if awoken/startled from sleeping. She can be possessive with high value treats, like bones or pig ears, but she doesn't show any food aggression with people. She is wonderful with her foster's mom young child. She loves small toys & is good about giving them back. Lucy's foster home has a structured environment & Lucy does very well with that. She requires a dog-savvy person who can meet her energy & drive needs. Lucy is good with the dogs in her foster home. She has a prey-drive & isn't good with cats. Lucy is crate trained & seems to be housetrained. Lucy is spayed & up-to-date on vaccines. Lucy Lu can't wait for the right family to give her her forever home!

Odie

UPDATED BIO! Hi! My name is Odie & I'm a very sweet 2-year old male beagle/chihuahua mix. I'm a little guy, but I'm solid. I weigh about 25 lbs. I have blue eyes! I want to be with my person all the time! I love to cuddle with them & I love to give kisses! I sleep in bed with my people at night, & that is very important to me. Just call me "Velcro dog!" I like to sit beside my person & have my little paw on them. I can be very timid in new situations, but my foster mom has been working with me on that. She's a school teacher & has taken me to school! I really loved the attention from the children. The children were very respectful of me & that is important. I need a calm home where there isn't a lot of goings on. I'm good with other dogs & cats, but I would not like to be with a young playful dog. I like it when the animals I'm around are calm & relaxed. I've made great progress on housetraining. I haven't had an accident since the first few days in my foster home. But it takes a long time for me to potty when I'm outside. Once I have my potty spot, it doesn't take as long. So my person has to be patient with me until I find my potty spot. I'd love to have a fenced in yard! I'm crate trained. I'll fuss in my crate when you 1st put me in, but then I calm down. I've always been crated when no one is home. If you are right for me, please think about making me part of your family! More photos: https://www.petfinder.com/dog/odie-51469991/pa/west-decatur/nittany-beagle-rescue-pa98/

 

Sally

Hi! My name is Sally & I'm an adorable female tricolor beagle. I was originally found as a stray & was taken to a shelter, but then the shelter transferred me to Nittany Beagle Rescue. The shelter thought I was about 9 years old, but the folks at Nittany Beagle Rescue think I might be younger, maybe 7 or 8 years. I'm not a big beagle, but I need to lose some weight. I'm the sweetest girl! I'm very affectionate! I'm also a very calm dog. I ride well in a car on highways & in town. But if you take me on curvey back roads, I might get sick. I'm in a foster home & I'm doing well with the other dogs & cat & small child in the home. Sally seems to be protective of her food with other dogs. But that is natural since she was on the streets for part of her life & had to fend for herself. Sally is doing well in terms of housetraining. Nittany Beagle Rescue prefers a relatively quiet home for Sally since she is on the older side. Sally is already spayed & up-to-date on vaccines! She is waiting for her forever home to come along!

Shakey

Hi! My name is Shakey & I'm a super sweet 8-year old male beagle! I'm adorable! I'm full of energy & I'm a very affectionate & loving guy! I've lived in an outdoor kennel all my life with Lobo (who is also available for adoption). But it's fine for us to be placed in different forever homes. I get along well with other dogs. I've never been around a cat, & I might chase one. I've never been around young children. Because of this, Nittany Beagle Rescue will place me in a home with older children or no children. I'm overweight, so I need a family who can work on helping me trim down. I was trained to hunt rabbits, but I'm scared of loud sounds. So I'll probably be frightened during thunderstorms & fireworks. I'll take off hunting for bunnies if I get loose. It's extremely important that I either be in a securely fenced yard or on-leash when outside. Also, I need a home where the door to the outside is shut quickly so I can't run out. I'll need work on housetraining & house manners, but the folks at Nittany beagle Rescue say it's easier to train an adult dog than a puppy. I really am a joy & a bit of a clown, & I will make who ever adopts me smile! I'm living in a boarding kennel right now, but I'm anxious to find my forever home! Shakey is up-to-date on vaccines & will be neutered & have a dental before he is adopted.

Zeus

Hi! I'm Zeus & I'm a 9 month-old male beagle. I'm very sweet! I've been around children & would be great in a family with children 8 years or older. I'm very loving & affectionate! I'm also playful & full of energy. Fetch & tug-of-war are my favorite games! I'm young & will be extremely energetic for the next couple of years. So I need a home where I can play & run! A home with a securely fenced yard is preferable. I dig, so it's important I can't dig under the fence. It's also important that I be socialized with other animals, so I would like a home where my people took me for walks. I ride great in a car! The folks at Nittany Beagle Rescue just tethered me safely to the back seat & I slept on the drive. I also will ride in a crate. I bark & I'll bark for awhile when everyone leaves the house. I'm making progress on housetraining. I'm crate trained, but have had accidents in the crate. I'm at that age where I will chew on everything (including electrical cords & furniture) & so I need to be crated or safely secured in a room like a kitchen when no one is home. I'm still learning manners, & I will jump on people. I also still puppy bite. I've slept in a crate at night, but I think I might like sleeping in bed with my people or on a dog bed. I would love to have a doggie-sibling to play with! I've never been around cats, & I might chase them. I'm neutered & up-to-date on vaccines. I'm can't wait for the right forever home to make me part of their family!
