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.
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.
Beagle X (other breed unknown)
Kody’s ideal home will:
- Have no other dogs or other pets
- Be an adult only household, no young children
- Be in a rural/regional setting – not in the inner city
- Have secure fencing – at least in part if on acreage
- Be experienced dog owners
Kody has been in care with BRN since Christmas 2020 and is being cared for in kennels as we have been unable to find an in-home carer with the right set up for him. Kody has been assessed by a qualified trainer and deemed suitable for rehoming.
Kody has previously been medicated for anxiety, however has recently been weaned off his medication and is doing well. We believe this demonstrates that in the right environment, where he can feel safe and secure, Kody is able to manage without medication on an ongoing basis.
Kody forms strong bonds with people and is best suited to a household where he doesn’t have to compete with others for his favourite humans’ attention. Kody is ‘dog social’ in terms of play sessions, but finds the full time company of other dogs overwhelming. Thus, he needs to be the only dog in the house.
Kody feels most at ease in an environment with predictability and routine, and would suit a quiet household in a quiet area.
As a young dog still, Kody has plenty of energy and he does like to play and run, so some room to move would be great for him.
Kody has been responding well to the training he has been receiving (our thanks to the staff at the boarding kennels for the work they have been doing with him). He walks well on his harness, but will still pull if walked on a collar only. Kody still has a tendency to jump up on people when he is excited and will need to keep working on that.
Kody needs someone he can bond with and attach to, who will give him boundaries and teach him what’s expected of him. Kody’s people need to have the time to hang out with him and be committed to spending time on his training.
Kody has ‘character’ and is ‘loved’ by the staff. Kody is a complicated dog, and having spent so much time in kennels (including through months of lockdown) he may find adjusting back to home life challenging. We do believe that he is, at heart, a good dog. As a rescue, we are committed to supporting Kody’s future family and will provide any and all support we can. We have been very specific about Kody’s requirements and these elements are not negotiable for him. We are more than happy to discuss Kody’s needs and background in further detail with potential applicants for him. Kody deserves his own home, the sooner the better, but it must also be the right home.
If you think you may be able to tick all the boxes for Kody’s ideal home, please complete an application form (see contact section) and we will be in touch.

Beagle X (other breed unknown)
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)
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.
As usual for any dog in foster care, anyone interested in adopting Archie must also submit an Application Form. An application is not binding it helps us to assess each potential family to help us find Archie’s perfect match.
All applications will be assessed, following which a meet and greet will be arranged with Archie’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.
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.
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.
