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 5/25/2022 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. I'm currently being treated for heartworm; I will be placed in the State College area while I'm undergoing treatment. 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:



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:



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: ADOPTION PENDING.



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:



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:



Hi! My name is Sasha & I'm a full-fledged husky! So I'm an honorary beagle! I'll be 2-years old in September. I'm an active girl! I'm quite playful & sociable! I love to play tug-of-war, ball & to run around in a fenced yard! I'm also very attentive & affectionate! I'm a confident, independent girl. I was raised with a child in elementary school & I'm great with them! I'm used to being free in the house during the day - I've never been destructive. I'm housetrained & I go to the door when I need to go outside. I'm used to sleeping at the bottom of the stairs in my own bed at night. I walk well on a leash, but I'm extremely strong & will run if you drop the leash. Just like a beagle, I'll take off if I'm not in a securely fenced yard & off-leash. I'm up-to-date on vaccines & spayed. I've never been in a crate. Click on my page to see another photo of me! Please think about making me part of your family! ADOPTION PENDING.



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. Click on my page to see another photo of me! I'm already spayed & up-to-date on vaccines. ADOPTION PENDING.
