ready for love?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.
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. It is the responsibility of prospective applicants to source as much information about the dog they are seeking to home as possible. BRN cannot be held responsible for the outcome of a private rehoming.
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.

Please contact ALICIA who is Bella’s owner on 0405 250 896. Bella will remain in her home until ALICIA has made a decision about her new family.
Please note that as a private rehoming, we know only what Bella’s owner has told us. She is not in care with Beagle Rescue NSW and we have not assessed her. Bella’s owner will field all enquiries and make all decisions regarding her new home. Once Bella’s new home is chosen, her current and new owners will need to complete and sign a Form C3A together, then lodge the completed form with council (no cost) to transfer her ownership details. Alternatively, ownership may be transferred online via the NSW Pet Registry (both current and new owners will need to register an account; current owner needs to ‘claim’ the dog, then transfer them to the new owner, new owner must ‘accept’ the dog to transfer ownership).
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.
