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.

Private 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. 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.

Training: When she was a puppy she did have behaviour training

Temperament: Roxy is very attached. Wants to be with you and whines when she can’t. Barks for a bit when you first leave her and then settles. Roxy is cautious when meeting new people

Roxy loves affection. She would be well suited to a family with lots of kids who can play with her. Although, she also does like sleeping and sleeps alot during the day

Please contact SHANNON who is Roxy’s owner on 0414 197 372. Roxy will remain in her home until SHANNON has made a decision about her new family.

Please note that as a private rehoming, we know only what Roxy’s owner has told us. She is not in care with Beagle Rescue NSW and we have not assessed her. Roxy’s owner will field all enquiries and make all decisions regarding her new home. Once Roxy’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).




Adoption Fee: $200

Microchip #: 943 094 320 286 462

Location: East Kurrajong NSW 2758

Age/DOB: 10 years 5 months / 12-10-2013

Sex: Male (Desexed)

Colour: Lemon & White

Vaccinated: Yes, due again 2025

Heartworm/flea/tick/worming: Yes

Health: Milo was carrying quite a bit of extra weight when he arrived in care, which put pressure on his knees. While in care he has been brought back to a healthy weight and has been given vet clearance for no further treatment required on his knees. Milo will need to be kept at a healthy weight to keep additional pressure off his joints and avoid future surgery.

House Trained: Yes

Allowed Indoors: Yes

Usually Sleeps: Crate trained (indoors)

Used to cats: While there are also cats at Milo’s foster home, they are kept separately to the dogs. Milo has not directly interacted with cats in his foster home

Used to children: Has not lived with young children, has lived with teenagers/young adults

Other dogs: Gets along well with other dogs. Milo is being fostered with other beagles of varying ages

Training: Milo is a fast learner, enjoys routines and responds well to all training activities.

Milo is active and energetic, nothing like the dog that arrived in our care. He has been very loving since day 1 and has a wonderful gentle nature and open disposition. Company both human and beagle is enjoyed and he is open to new experiences. He will make sure another beagle knows he is the ‘senior’ dog to ensure they behave properly. He is ready for his own special person and family that he can love and who will love him.

As usual for any dog in foster care, anyone interested in adopting MILO is asked to submit an Application Form. An application is not binding, it helps us to assess each potential family to help us find MILO’s perfect match.
All applications will be assessed and we will arrange for those who we think may be a good fit to chat to MILO’s foster carer to find out more. Following this a meet and greet will be arranged with MILO’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.

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.
