Adopt a Beagle

This page lists dogs currently looking for their new home, who are either in foster care with Beagle Rescue NSW, or who are offered for Private Rehoming by their current owner. Beagle Rescue NSW does not place time limits on the dogs in foster care with us.

Dogs for adoption

BRN facilitates the rehoming of dogs in one of two ways:

 

Dogs in foster care

These are beagles who have come into care with us and are currently living with one of our amazing volunteer foster carers. We spend some time getting to know them before embarking on the search for their new homes. All our foster dogs are vet checked for general health and, if needed, brought up to date with vaccinations, flea/tick and heartworm medications. We’ll also ensure we carry out any vet work for specific ailments if needed. We will also ensure any dogs not already spayed or neutered are desexed before they leave our care.
Beagles in foster care are adopted via an application process. Applications are collected and assessed to try and match the individual dog to the applicant we think they are best suited to. This gives our beagles the greatest chance of success in their new home. All beagles in foster care are adopted on a 30-day trial basis – this gives the beagle and their new adoptive family an opportunity to really get to know each other. If at any point during the trial period, the family feels it’s not going to work out, they just need to let us know and arrange for the beagle to be returned to their foster carer. It’s ok if that happens, sometimes, things just don’t work out the way everyone hoped. We know that each dog’s perfect match is out there, and we are committed to finding them.

Assisted Rehoming

These are beagles who will stay in the care of their current owners until they find their new home. The current owners field enquiries from potential new families and make all decisions regarding their Beagle’s new home. BRN advertises these beagles to our many followers to help connect the beagle in need with those looking to add a beagle to their family. As these dogs are not in our care and we haven’t assessed them, BRN is entirely reliant on the information provided by the dog’s current owner. BRN’s policy is that any dog listed for rehoming must be desexed before listing, and must be registered in the name of the person requesting the rehoming.

Reason for rehoming: Loki & Cali have grown bigger than we expected and we feel our house is too small to allow them the room they need. We are both shift workers and also feel we do not have enough time to devote to adequate training for them. 

About Loki & Cali: Loki and Cali are wonderful dogs. They are brother and sister from the same litter. We would like them to remain with each other as they are bonded. They are good with children but can be clumsy. They like to dig and chew everything as most puppies do. They currently spend the day outside and come inside to sleep at night.

Please contact Loki & Cali’s owner, TROY on thowell1@optusnet.com.au or on 0402 423 914. Loki & Cali will remain in their home until Troy has made a decision about their new family.

Please note that as a private rehoming, we know only what Loki & Cali’s owner has told us. They are not in care with Beagle Rescue NSW and we have not assessed them. Loki & Cali’s owner will field all enquiries and make all decisions regarding their new home. Once Loki & Cali’s new home is chosen, their current and new owners will need to complete and sign a Form C3A together (one for each dog), then lodge the completed forms with council (no cost) to transfer their ownership details.

Beagle – bonded pair

Baxter PR008-2021
Wilson PR009-2021

Health: No stated health issues

House Trained: Yes

Allowed Indoors: Yes

Usually sleeps: In a kennel together in the backyard

Temperament: No behavioural or temperament issues

Used to cats: No

Used to children: Yes – Regular contact with 5, 8 and 10 year-olds

Other dogs: Baxter: No behavioural issues with other dogs. When walking on-leash he will generally ignore other dogs going by. In an off-leash park or beach he is friendly and will play with other dogs. He is neither submissive nor dominant. He’s just a friendly little beagle

Wilson: No behavioural issues around other dogs. He will generally ignore other dogs when being walked on-lead

Training: Baxter: “Beginners” training when a puppy. He responds to “Sit” and “Wait” and will not eat his dinner until told “OK”. When off leash, he will generally come when called, but not always

Wilson: “Beginners” training when a puppy. He responds to commands such as “Sit” and “wait” and doesn’t eat his dinner until told “OK”. He will answer to his name but I will only allow him “off- leash” in a fenced off-leash park as he will otherwise wonder and not return on command. He and Baxter both walk on-lead very well (I use a split lead to avoid tangles)

Reason for rehoming: To give up Baxter and Wilson for re-homing is a heartbreaking decision but necessary due to changed circumstances after re-marrying. Unfortunately, they have not been accepted by our other large-breed dogs and I fear for their long-term welfare

About Baxter and Wilson: Both Baxter and Wilson are sweet natured, love a pat and a cuddle and, although they haven’t lived with children whilst owned by me, they love to be with my young grandchildren when they visit. They are never naughty, do not dig or chew or bark unnecessarily. In fact, Wilson rarely barks at all. They are not food-aggressive with humans but do not like to share food with each other. I do not over-feed them and never allow them to have “human” food such as scraps from the table. As a result, they are slim and in good health for their age. They have been together since they were puppies and are very good company for each other, so they never suffer loneliness whilst they are together. They are very good travellers in the car. They love to go for walks but are also content to lounge around in a sunny spot in the back yard. When they are allowed in the house in the evenings they are happy to sit and snooze together on their mat while we watch TV. They would be very good company for an older person or couple, or someone looking for low-maintenance pets

Please contact Baxter & Wilson’s owner, NEIL on 0459 812 483. Baxter & Wilson will remain in their home until Neil has made a decision about their new family.

Please note that as a private rehoming, we know only what Baxter & Wilson’s owner has told us. They are not in care with Beagle Rescue NSW and we have not assessed them. Baxter & Wilson’s owner will field all enquiries and make all decisions regarding their new home. Once Baxter & Wilson’s new home is chosen, their current and new owners will need to complete and sign a Form C3A together for each dog, then lodge the completed form with council (no cost) to transfer their ownership details.

Hi Future Owner!

Welcoming a new member of the family is an exciting time for everyone. Please remember though, that for the dogs, it can also be a scary and anxious time. They leave behind everything they’ve known so far to go to a new place with strange people, strange dogs, strange sights and smells. It may take them a little while to settle in.

While each dog is an individual, generally try to remember the ‘Rule of 3’ when welcoming a new dog into your home:

  • In the first 3 days your new dog may be feeling overwhelmed; may be scared and unsure of what’s going on; may not be comfortable enough to be ‘themselves’; may shut down and want to curl up in their crate or hide under a table; and may test some boundaries.

  • After 3 weeks your new dog should be starting to settle in; they are feeling more comfortable; they are realising this could possibly be their forever home; they have figured out their environment; they are getting into a routine; they let their guard down and may start showing their true personality; and any behaviour issues may start to emerge.

  • After 3 months your new dog should be completely comfortable in their new home; should be building trust and a new bond with their family; should have gained a complete sense of security with their new family; and should be set in a routine.

Give your new dog space and time to work at their own pace during this initial settling in period.
