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’s ideal home will:

  • Have no other dogs or other pets 
  • Be an adult only household (preferably female only), 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 been weaned off his medication once comfortable in the setting he’s in. 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 loves to swim in the dam. Please bear in mind that Kody does not recall well and will need to be an on-lead dog if in unsecured areas.

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 and confidence building. 

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 will find adjusting back to home life stressful at the outset. 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.

Microchip #: 953 010 004 174 389

Adoption fee: $350

Current location: NSW mid South Coast

Size: Kody is a large dog. We do not know what he crossed with, but he weighs over 25kg and is not overweight. Kody displays many Beagley traits (he loves to follow his nose!).

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. 

Kody will also have an extended trial period to ensure everyone is comfortable with the suitability of his new home. Please note that having spent so long in a very structured environment, Kody is going to find the initial period in a new home scary. We expect him to take at least a couple of weeks to settle in and become comfortable with where he is. These first weeks won’t be easy for anyone. We firmly believe that with perseverance and patience, Kody will form strong bonds and feel comfortable with the right people in the right environment.

Barklee

Archie F004-2021
Maxie PR022-2021 #2

Microchip #: 943 094 320 136 302

Rehoming Fee: $200

Current location: Denistone NSW 2114

Age/DOB: 10 yr 2 mo / 26-03-2012

Sex: Male (desexed)

Colour: Tri-colour

Last Vaccinated: November 2021

Heartworm/flea/tick/worming: Yes – proheart

Health: No known issues

House Trained: No

Allowed Indoors: No. We have had him as an outside dog more because of the children’s allergies.

Usually sleeps: In the garage

Temperament: Barklee doesn’t howl but does bark when bored sometimes. He sometimes whimpers when trying to get a message across (eg bowl is empty of water or blanket fell off his airbed). He is not destructive at all but he does love to dig earth up (more of a summer observation), so he has his area of digging. We do wall up our veges and plants. 

Used to cats: No

Used to children: Yes – the kids were 8 and 3 years old when Barklee arrived, he has grown up with them.

Other dogs: He loves all types of dog but seems frightened by larger dark coloured dogs. He loves beagles. He is a very submissive dog and when he meets other dogs that are of his size or bigger, he is the submissive one. He has not lived with other dogs.

Training: He had puppy training as a youngster

He is a super fit beagle for his age as I’m a road runner and even despite his age he still maintains a weight of 17-18kg. So he is quite lean for his age. He would be happy with either a retired couple or a family with young children or where people work at home. He loves kids and we have brought him all over the eastern seaboard in Australia on our family road trips.

Please contact Barklee’s owner, KEVIN, on 0423 888 028. Barklee will remain in his home until Kevin has made a decision about his new family.

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.
