Posted Breed: Beagle. Doobie came into the rescue as a stray. We were told that his owner died and other relatives didn't want him. Doobie co-exists peacefully with the other dogs in his foster household, but he really loves his humans and seems to attach to one person and wants to be with that one person all the time. He is completely housetrained and has been left alone for 4-5 hours with no incident. He doesn't like to be picked up but will jump up on the couch or chair and sit across your lap so you can stroke him. Doobie would do best as an only dog with a single person or a couple who isn't gone for too many hours.

More About Beagle Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Location: Tampa, FL
      Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). Archie is a very relaxed guy. He loves to go for walks and run with the big dogs. He enjoys snuggling on the bed but he does need a little help getting up there. Archie does exhibit one bad beagle quality--trash surfing! Any experienced beagle owners will know all about that! Archie loves to travel and rides in the car like an angel. He is getting along beautifully with the other pups in the house.

      Breed: Beagle
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Tampa, FL
      Posted Breed: Beagle. Olive found herself at animal control with her buddy, Rufus and we aren't sure why. Olive is a little pistol. She is quite active and loves to go for walks. She actually runs. She is an escape artist and will seek out an adventure outside the confines of your yard, so it will have to be fortified. Luckily, in her current foster home, there are no escape routes. She gets along well with the other dogs in her foster homes, although she likes to be the boss of them. :-) She settles down pretty quickly.

      rescue
      Breed: Beagle
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Tampa, FL
      Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). Rose Marie seems to be very sweet. She likes to snuggle and give kisses. She crates well and is housetrained. Rose Marie (affectionately deemed Rosie in her foster home) is quite frightened of men and older boys. She runs and tries to hide from them. She is scared if people raise their voices and will try to run from them. She can be timid when the husband in the home tries to crate her before leaving. She doesn't have a mean bone in her body we just feel she hasn't always been treated well and it is still too fresh in her mind. She will do submissive peeing if frightened or cornered. Rose Marie loves other dogs and very much wants to play. She walks better when she has a canine friend with her. Again, loud noises startle her but overall she does OK on the leash. Rose Marie will need a calmer house with a family willing to give her some patience to adjust. We do feel over time she will make a magnificent canine member of a family.

      Posted Breed: Hound / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed. Koba is a young energetic dog. He has some beagle traits, loves his food, but he is bigger than a beagle. He walks well on a leash and is good with a crate. Koba has started training and his manners are improving quickly. He is house trained and loves stuffed animals with squeakers! He would be best in an active home thats wants to share adventures with him.

      rescue
      Breed: Beagle
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Tampa, FL
      Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). Marshall is a gentle soul looking for love. He came to us with a bit of hair loss on his back and tail, but that just adds to his charm. Marshall loves to go for walks and walks well on a leash. Marshall has a great appetite and will work for his dinner, if he thinks you didn’t feed him enough dinner he will push his bowl all over the kitchen telling you he wants more! He knows sit, sit-up, will give you his paw and roll over. He has his foster mom trained and lets you know when he wants out, and knows there is a treat waiting for him when he comes in. Marshall loves to cuddle but isn’t demanding about it, he is content to lie in his bed or play with his toys. Marshall is listed as a senior but he has a lot of spunk and is quite playful at times. Marshall is looking for a forever home and hopes that person doesn’t have to leave him by himself all day!

      Location: Tampa, FL
      Posted Breed: Beagle. Hi! My name is Dash and I am a handsome, loving, quirky guy. I will need a very specific type of home but I am worth it - I will love you forever! - No kids - No other dogs - Fenced yard My likes: - Snuggling. Right in your face. I may weigh 27 pounds but I have the soul of a lap dog. Most of the time I will take the hint and snuggle beside you if you need your lap for other things. I also like to tunnel under the blankets on your bed but my foster home doesn't allow that. - Playing fetch/catch. I am really good at this game and will play it as long as you will. I love to chase the ball and bring it back. I'll even drop it close enough so you don't have to get out of your chair. - Eating. I'm a beagle. 'Nuff said. I had some extra weight on me when I came to the rescue but have lost it and will need you to help me stay at a healthy weight. - Approval. I am smart and really want to please my family. I bet you could teach me lots of things! I have shown perfect potty habits in my foster home. My dislikes: - Dogs that are bigger than me. They make me very nervous and I may react by barking and even lunging at them. Lucky for me, most big dogs don't react the same way. I often get along just fine with dogs smaller than me, and my foster home has a guinea pig that I pretty much ignore. - The dog park. I will need a home with a fenced yard so I can play fetch but not have to worry about other dogs. - Vacuum cleaners. Brooms. Treadmills. Lawnmowers. I get a bit stressed and will protect you from them by doing my best to destroy them. *** If you read all the way to the end of this narrative and are interested in meeting Dash, please contact us for a private meet up to see what a great dog he is! If you have any questions we'd be happy to talk with you.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Tampa, FL
      Posted Breed: Beagle / Treeing Walker Coonhound / Mixed. Frankie was found in a retention pond in Tampa in early July. The people who found him believe he was hit by a car and knocked into the pond. He was taken to Hillsborough County Pet Resource Center, who then contacted us about taking him in. He has recovered from surgery to repair a broken femur and is now available for adoption. Frankie is very sweet and quiet. He gets along with the people and other dogs in his foster home. As you can imagine, Frankie's medical bills were quite high. If you'd like to donate to help cover the cost, please click the Paypal link on the home page of this website.

      Breed: Beagle

      Age: Adult

      Posted Breed: Beagle. Jeri is a smart, adorable, tiny beagle. She will need some extra patience, but she will love you for it! She will do best in a quiet home. Because she is timid, we suggest only teenagers as the youngest children. Jeri gets along with the other dogs her size but is scared of bigger dogs. She is housetrained and has learned how to use the doggie door. A busy street or area can be overwhelming for her, and she will need your patience and reassurance to help her overcome her timidity. She prefers women over men, but with patience, she will learn to trust.

      Posted Breed: Beagle. Rufus found himself at animal control with his buddy, Olive and we aren't sure why. He is a great little beagle guy with a lot of love to give! Rufus is very timid but very lovable. He's also very vocal, not just howling (only outside) but he also "moos" and whines a lot to show his love! Rufus is loving our Florida winter and spends hours in the back yard of his foster home, soaking up the sun. He came to TBBR underweight and we are trying to fatten him up. Rufus does not have a mean bone in his body, and he is always looking for love.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Tampa, FL
      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed. Poor Scooby...we don't know much of anything about his life before TBBR, but we know it was lacking in proper care. Scooby's rescue plea listed many medical maladies including flea dermatitis (hair loss), an old embedded collar scar, multiple lumps and bumps, ear infections, and an ear hematoma that needed to be drained. He also needed to be neutered and is heartworm positive. Goodness. But he is on his way to healing now under the wonderful care of our rescue. Scooby IV isn't exactly a beagle, either. We are just calling him a hound. And while our mission is absolutely beagles and beagle mixes, sometimes we step in where others will not, and Scooby is one of those cases. He has shown himself to walk nicely on a leash, is quiet in his crate, and gets along with the other dogs in the house. He met the resident kitty through the baby gate, and neither one of them seemed to care less. In his first weekend in a home in some time, Scooby can be found casually exploring his house and yard but also just soaking up some sunshine while he takes a nap. Scooby is a special dog that will need a special home that understands his needs and pace. We would like to get his health further improved before sending him on, but don't let that stop you from meeting him or putting in your application. On behalf of Scooby, we would like to thank all of our wonderful volunteers and supporters who help make stories like his possible.
