  Adam is a precious middle-aged beagle who came from a North Carolina in very rough shape.  He's been brought back to good health by his fosters in Virginia, and he's ready for adoption.  Adam is a low-key little guy, he loves to sleep under the covers, likes rides in the car, and enjoys his time wandering in the yard and sleeping in the sun.  He'll make a great addition to a Beagle-loving home.  Adam is about 8 yrs old and weighs about 20 lbs.

Toby is a cute little beagle mix, about 2 years old and 25 lbs.  He loves to play with other dogs, likes his crate, rides well in the car and loves his 'walkies' - he gets very excited when his foster gets ready for a walk.  Toby would do best with a  dog experienced owner and another dog for companionship. Toby has a scar on his back, possibly from a burn or injury.  He's a little nervous in new situations but warms up with some patience, and he's loving and affectionate with those he knows.  He can use a little confidence-building and exposure to new situations.  He's going to be a nice pet and deserves some TLC. Toby wlll arrive June 27.

Kipper is a local owner surrender.  He needs a new home where he'll have a canine companion, some good exercise and attention from his family.  Kipper loves to ride in the car; he walks well on a leash, and he did well with the 7 yr old and the cat at his previous home.  Kipper is housebroken, he tolerates a crate but is a little anxious when left alone.  Living with another dog will help this situation.  Kipper is an escape artist and needs to be supervised in a fenced area.  Kipper weighs about 45 lbs ( could take some weight off). and is 6 yrs old.  He is in foster care in Maine.

Mikey is a friendly, playful beagle mix from Virginia.  Mikey is about 2 yrs old and weighs about 25 lbs.  He's great with other dogs, love attention from his people, loves to run and play. Mikey is boarding at a doggie daycare in the Boston area Mikey - he's ready for visits and his forever home.

Chazzy is an 7-8 year old beagle boy.   Chaz would do best with a male owner.  He is definitely a "Man's dog".  In his foster home he seems to be drawn to his foster dad.  Chazz wants nothing more then to have a little daily exercise and a dog bed to nap on.
Chazzy loves to play ball and can be comical at times too. Chazz can be a little "quirky" as when he has had enough of something he will let you know he is ready for his own space.
Chaz is house trained, crate trained, walks well on a leash.  He does good with cats.  Chaz would need the company of another mellow female or male dog in his home.  We would recommend a beagle savvy home without any young children.  Chazzy is in Maine and ready for visits.

                                                 Marty  - Adopted
 Marty is a young beagle, about 2 yrs old and about 25 lbs.  Marty can be a little shy until he knows you - then he is all about petting and will roll over on his back for belly rubs.  He's submissive and gentle. He's a typical Virginia Beagle who has not lived as a pet, so some housebreaking and leash-training will be necessary, but he'll get it. Marty would do great with a dog-experienced owner and might enjoy another dog in the home for companionship. Marty has arrived and is ready for visits.

                                                    Jethro - Adopted
Jethro is a purebred bluetick coonhound from Virginia. He's about 2 yrs old and weighs about 67 lbs. He was apparently someone's pet as he appears to be housebroken. His  foster says he's a good all-around hound. Jethro has lots of enthusiasm - he loves to meet new people, loves to play with other dogs.  He's a good snuggler and likes to be petted or curl up with the hound girls at his foster home.   Jethro is not so good around cats - so no cats please.  Jethro has arrived and is ready for visits in the Boston area.

Major is a handsome and friendly foxhound from Virginia.  He's good with other dogs, seems okay with most cats, loves his walks and hanging out with his family.

 I'm Bonnie, cute as a button, blue tick through and through.. I'm a pretty laid back gal.. house and crate trained though I'd rather sleep in the middle of the bed every night as close to my humans as I can get.  I'm about 2 or so.. who really knows.. up to date on everything and even micro chipped and spayed.  I love to snuggle, I have a bit of puppy energy, and been known to get into a little mischief but no furniture or shoes involved.. !  I"m a really good girl.. 'I'm about 45 lb and working on my sit and down skills daily.   I was found with my buddy Clyde and love him though I'm fine without him near but would like a playmate if possible.  I'm also ok with birds and other dogs.  No clue on the cat thing.. no cats at my foster home to play with. 

 I'm Clyde -  a blue tick boy!  I love to play and tussle with my furmates in my foster home.. I'm 95% house trained and fully crate trained.. I love to sleep in bed with my humans, I snore.. sorry.  I would love a home with a playmate.. I'm an attention hound... and get a bit anxious if noone is around to play.  I am learning to sit.. and down... not real good with stay yet. I have a short attention span.  I get along with all my fur siblings big and small... plus that big bird who thinks he is a dog too.   I do bark.. I am a hound.. and at only 2 everything is new to me now that I have a place to hang out.  I'm neutered, up to date on shots, and microchipped. I would love a house where there is someone to play with an someone to pay attention to me.  I'm about 45 or so pounds.. mom says I need a few groceries and we are working on that... I was found with my pal Bonnie... I would love to be adopted with her.. but if there are suitable playmates I think I would be good with that.. ok and someone to rub my tummy and ears too all the time....

                            Bonnie and Clyde can also be adopted TOGETHER......



Karma is about 3 yrs old and weighs about 38 lbs.  She's like a little fawn, lightweight and elegant. She'll do well with someone who wants to help with the next stage of her rescue.  She needs some TLC, a quiet, understanding home, and a loving, patient owner.  She gets along great with other dogs and enjoys playing running and napping with the dogs at her foster home.  Some obedience work to help her gain confidence, and another dog to show her the way would also be helpful in her new home. Karma has an old injury or congenital defect with her right front 'wrist' area.  She gets around fine and puts weight on it.  Karma is available in Massachusetts.

 Sherriff is happy, friendly treeing walker coonhound from Virginia.  He's quiet and well-mannered and would make a good family dog.  He can be sweet and goofy and sometimes sounds like he's trying to talk - with all of his funny vocalizations.  Sherriff walks well on a leash; he's not a big barker; he likes to be with his people and would do well with the company of another dog when left alone.  Nothing not to like about this boy - all around great hound dog !   Sherriff is about 7 yrs old and weighs about 60 lbs.  Sherriff has arrived and is ready for visits.                     






Laverne and Shirley are a beautiful pair of redticks from South Carolina.  They are currently boarding at a doggie daycare in Massachusetts - a foster or adoptive home is urgently needed.  These girls are a bonded pair - they are good with other dogs but have been through a long rescue journey and enjoy hanging out with each other.  They are engaging with people that they know - and readily warm up to new people in a day or so.  Both are gentle, sweet souls, not high maintenance.  In their case - two is easier than one - they will have a companion to pay and rest with and will make an easy transition to their new home. C'mon - you know you'll want a second one sooner or later - take the plunge and start off with these two!
