If you love gorgeous purebred beagles, this is your chance to adopt a really good one! (We have two actually, see Trapper John, also listed).
Hal is a total sweetheart per his local foster mom in Rhode Island! He’s not too barky (come on, if you’re a beagle lover, you know…). This guy is great with his foster dog siblings and is great with people but he’s not a super cuddler - most likely because he was a hunting dog down south and quite often they aren’t treated as “pets.” Given they were found abandoned in the woods after hunting season, this is most likely it. He loves pets and rubs but just not a cuddle on the couch and watch TV with you. Hal would do best in a quieter home with adults. He is fine with children and teens, but busy homes give him some stress and we’d like to see Hal thrive.
The boys were rescued by one of our fave people in Tennessee - while her husband was out walking the woods she came across these two beauties and they had been obviously dumped. This is a quite common occurrence after hunting season for older beagles to be just dumped if they lost their affinity to hunt properly. Just toss them on their own and hope. They were starving, injured, loaded with worms, you name it.
The boys struggled with house training for a long time but are crateable and foster mom says doing way better now. She worked on it consistently with them and they pretty much have it down.
Will you consider one of these angels? They’ve made it this far and deserve a home with a warm bed, food when they need it, and tons of love. Beagle lovers will tell you that there’s no more fun breed that this!!
