Beagle911 Refuge and Rescue is a place where abandoned, unloved, old, sick, injured or `out of time’ beagles might find a safe refuge, and with a bit of wonderful luck, a new forever home. Generally, we do not have puppies. What you can expect is a beagle who has been abandoned, mistreated, neglected, injured, or with a health issue that is now under control and now is ready to find a family. All are spayed or neutered, unless there are extenuating circumstances. In those cases, a spay/neuter clause in the contract is enforced. All have their shots up to date.
About Beagles: The Beagle is a gentle, sweet, lively, and curious dog that just loves everyone. A happy little tail-wagger. Social, brave, and intelligent. Calm and loving. They do have minds of their own and are determined. They require consistent, gentle training or you can break their spirit. Beagles have a distinctive bark/howl that is considered harmonious. If not left alone outdoors as the hunters did, they do not bark any more than any dog does. Energetic and possessing great stamina, the Beagle needs plenty of exercise but a reasonably sized fenced yard with a daily brisk walk should do. They will follow their nose so cannot be trusted off leash in an unsafe area. Being an average shedder an occasional brushing will suffice. Give proper attention to the ears because they are prone to infections. Keep their nails trimmed. Do not let them become overweight. The average lifespan is 15-18 years. Unfortunately, due to their small, uniform size and gentle disposition, Beagles are often used for medical experimentation.
We Want to Help ALL Adoptable Companion Animals At Risk Beagle911 is a rescue and refuge that focuses on beagles, but we may also accept into our care umbrella animals that need to be relocated for reasons beyond the owner’s or sponsor’s control. The animals do not have to be beagles, let alone dogs, but for perhaps one of many reasons the owners/sponsors do not or cannot surrender them to any of the local shelters.
