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.

Kody

PR002-2021 Loki Jan 2021
PR003-2021 Cali Jan 2021

KODY HAS GONE ON TRIAL! 

Microchip #: 953 010 004 174 389

Adoption fee: $350

Current location: Orange NSW 2800

Age/DOB: 1 year 6 mo / 14-10-2019

Sex: Male (desexed)

Colour: Tri-colour

Last Vaccinated: October 2020

Heartworm/flea/tick/worming: Yes

Health: No known issues

House Trained: Yes

Allowed Indoors: Yes

Usually sleeps: Crate trained

Background: Kody was surrendered to us at the end of 2020 due to a sudden change in circumstances for his owner. While he was initially placed in in-home foster care, it became apparent that we did not have an available carer with the capability to manage his behaviour and as a result he is currently being cared for in kennels. We do not know what other breed(s) Kody is crossed with, but he is a larger dog (c.20-25kg).

Temperament: Kody has a number of positive qualities – he is personable and well-liked by both the humans and other dogs he interacts with. He learns easily and wants to please, so should take to further training well. 

There are also some elements of Kody’s personality that make him a more challenging dog – he suffers from some separation anxiety for which he is currently on medication. He becomes excited easily and takes some time to settle down (this includes jumping on people when he meets them). Kody can also become over-excited in situations where there is a larger number of dogs.

 Kody will need further training in basic manners, lead walking, resource guarding and manners around food. His new owners will need to devote considerable time to his training. Kody will need help to learn healthy ways in which to expend his energy and may do well in sports such as NoseWork or Rally Obedience. 

Given Kody’s tendencies towards anxiety and over-stimulation, he is best suited to a rural home – this gives him a quiet and relaxed environment in which to learn, but also the space to use his considerable bursts of energy.

Kody’s new home will need to be an all adult household – he is not suited to a house with children. Kody finds confidence in routine, so his new home needs to be stable and quiet, with routines he can predict.

Kody has not been tested with cats, however we feel it is best if his new home does not have feline or other pocket pet residents.

Kody is a relatively large boy and has a tendency to ‘zoom’ at random. Kody’s owner will need to be able to manage his size in situations where he becomes over-excited – being handled, walking on lead, around other dogs and in new situations, for example.

Kody would be best suited as an only dog so that he can focus on his training without the distraction of other dogs. A household with an older, stable and confident dog may be considered. It would also be ok if there were working dogs on the property that Kody could interact with at times, but where he is the only ‘house dog’.

Kody requires an experienced owner – with extensive experience handling challenging dogs. Ideally, Kody’s new owner will be experienced with the breed and/or have a deeper level of comprehension of canine behaviour.

Kody may need ongoing support from a vet with a special interest in behaviour, a veterinary behaviourist and a qualified dog behavioural trainer.

Further Information: Kody is not the dog for everyone, but we believe he has great potential in the hands of the right person. We have been very specific about the requirements for his new home, because  he is still a young dog with a lot of promise and in the right home we feel he will do very well. He needs someone who is experienced and has the time and patience to help him grow and develop into the best dog he can be. BRN will be available to support his new owner as much as possible.

If after reading all of this, you believe yours fits the mould for Kody’s ideal new home, please first submit an Application Form – the more detail you provide us in the form, the better. We will assess all applications submitted and contact those we feel may be a good fit for Kody to discuss his needs and your home further. 

Meet and greets for Kody will take place in Orange and will need to include as many household members as possible. If there is another house dog in the family, they must also attend the meet and greet. Kody will not be sent on trial to home with a dog he has not met before.

Kody will also have an extended trial period, to ensure everyone is comfortable with the suitability of his new home.

Beagle

Jefferson

Archie F004-2021
Maxie PR022-2021 #2

Microchip #: 900 164 001 720 666

Adoption Fee: $300

Current location: North Ryde NSW 2113

Age/DOB: 2 year 9 mo / 13-08-2018

Sex: Male (desexed)

Colour: Tri-colour

Background: Jefferson (also known as Mr. Jefferson of Jeff) was surrendered in April 2021 due to a sudden change in circumstances for his owner. His owner moved to a large property that was too big to fence securely. Jefferson ended up going on daily adventures to find out who his doggie neighbours were and getting himself in trouble sometimes. 

Mr. Jefferson has a normal build and weighs around 17kg.  

Last Vaccinated: March 2021

Heartworm/flea/tick/worming: Yes

Health: Skin Irritation (Atopic dermatitis). Due to his dermatitis, he is fed a raw diet and needs 2 weekly baths/showers.

House Trained: Yes. Before coming into care, Jeffie has been an outdoor dog and wasn’t house trained. During his time with his foster parents, he became an indoor dog and is still learning to go outside to do his business. He still has an accident once in a while but it has improved  heaps 

Allowed Indoors: Yes

Usually sleeps: Crate trained

Used to cats: No. But he is used to chickens and ignores them

Used to children: Yes – 7 years old. He is incredibly good with children

Other dogs: Good with other dogs – boisterous and playful but no aggression

Training: Weekly dog training at a dog training club

Mr. Jefferson is quite an energetic dog and loves playing tug of war, chasing birds or talking to his imaginary friends. But he is equally as sweet and loves to crawl on the couch with you and cuddle up.  He loves humans and sometimes gets upset when he isn’t allowed to come in with them, but he gets over that very quickly when he starts playing with his Beagle sisters. 

He loves playing with other dogs but can be intimidated by bigger dogs. Once he realises they are no threat, he’ll happily engage in some chasing. Mr. Jefferson isn’t used to walking on lead, but he is learning fast and is already pulling less than when he first came into care. He does get extremely excited when seeing other dogs on his walks and tends to talk to them from afar. 

Jefferson has been going to doggie training and is a fast learner as long as he gets rewarded with yummy treats. He mastered sit, stand, drop (still learning), stay and leave it. He also does a really good “look”! We do encourage Jeffie’s new owner to keep taking him to training as there is still so much to learn

Mr. Jefferson’s ideal home is where there is another dog of a similar age he can play with and show him how to behave like a “good” doggie. A garden would be lovely, but it is best to walk him daily to get rid of his energy. He currently walks for about 2 hours per day. 

Jefferson would be best suited with another dog so that he can play to his hearts content. 

Jefferson may need ongoing support from a vet because of his dermatitis but it is under control and currently only needs an injection once every 6 months and bi-weekly baths/showers

To learn more about Jefferson and to introduce yourself, please contact his foster carer DORIEN on 0410 844 077. Please bear in mind that our carers are also volunteers – they have jobs, families, households and pets to manage – you may need to leave a message for them to call you back. Please be patient.

As usual for any dog in foster care, anyone interested in adopting Jefferson must also submit an Application Form. An application is not binding it helps us to assess each potential family to help us find Jefferson’s perfect match.

All applications will be assessed, following which a meet and greet will be arranged with Jefferson’s potential new family. Please note it’s important as many members of the household attend the meeting as possible. It is essential that our foster dogs meet any other dogs in the family at the meet and greet.

We do not operate on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. All our beagles are individually matched to their new families to try and achieve the best chance of success in their new home. All our foster beagles go to their new homes on a 30 day trial basis to allow everyone to get to know each other better. If, for any reason, during that period it looks like it won’t work out (hey, it happens, and that’s ok), BRN must be notified and the beagle returned to their foster carer.

If your application is not successful, please don’t feel that means we don’t think yours is a great home for one of our foster beagles. It merely means that in this instance, we felt there was a stronger ‘match’ in another applicant.

Beagle X (other breed unknown)

Archie

Archie F004-2021
Maxie PR022-2021 #2

Microchip #: 900 164 001 939 344

Adoption Fee: $350

Current location: North Rocks NSW 2151

Age/DOB: 1 yr 1 mo / 10-04-2020

Sex: Male (desexed)

Colour: Tri-colour

Last Vaccinated: July 2020

Heartworm/flea/tick/worming: Yes – Elanco

Health: No known issues

House Trained: No

Allowed Indoors: Supervised – highly active

Usually sleeps: Laundry / indoors – with nothing available in reach to chew. Previously slept outside in a kennel.

Temperament: No known issues

Used to cats: No

Used to children: Yes – given his size, strength and energy level, he is best suited to a family with older children/teens

Other dogs: He likes other dogs, but can be too exuberant when interacting with smaller dogs, therefore would suit a home with either no other dogs, or another larger breed

Training: He has learnt some basic obedience commands but requires a family that can devote time to provide further training

.

We do not know what other breed Archie is crossed with, but it is definitely something tall. He is quite a bit larger than an average purebred beagle. 

Archie is not your typical cuddly puppy. Rather, he loves to chase balls and keep active. He likes to dig and chew everything as most puppies do. Archie becomes excited easily and can jump on people when he meets them. He travels well in the car.

Archie would suit an active family who do not leave him alone for extended periods. He would not suit a household with absent workers, as he tends to bark when left alone for long periods. Due to his size, strength and energy level, he would suit a family with older children/teens, as he is very strong on a lead. He has not been tested with cats. He currently spends most of the day outdoors and comes inside to sleep.

To learn more about Archie and to introduce yourself, please contact his foster carer ANNA on 0423 271 808. Please bear in mind that our carers are also volunteers – they have jobs, families, households and pets to manage – you may need to leave a message for them to call you back. Please be patient.

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.
