Beagle911 Refuge and Rescue is a place where unwanted, unloved, old, sick, injured or `out of time' beagles might find a safe refuge, and with a bit of wonderful luck, a new forever home. Generally, we do not have puppies. What you can expect is a beagle who has been mistreated, neglected, injured, or with a health issue that is now under control and now is ready to find a family. All are spayed or neutered, unless there are extenuating circumstances. In those cases, a spay/neuter clause in the contract is enforced. All have their shots up to date. We are a small rescue - all of our funding comes from donations. Click here to learn more about us.

The Beagle is a gentle, sweet, lively, and curious dog that just loves everyone. A happy little tail-wagger. Social, brave, and intelligent. Calm and loving. They do have minds of their own and are determined. They require consistent, gentle training or you can break their spirit. Beagles have a distinctive bark/howl that is considered harmonious. If not left alone outdoors as the hunters did, they do not bark any more than any dog does. Energetic and possessing great stamina, the Beagle needs plenty of exercise but a reasonably sized fenced yard with a daily brisk walk should do. They will follow their nose so cannot be trusted off leash in an unsafe area. Being an average shedder an occasional brushing will suffice. Give proper attention to the ears because they are prone to infections. Keep their nails trimmed. Do not let them become overweight. The average lifespan is 15-18 years. Unfortunately, due to their small, uniform size and gentle disposition, Beagles are often used for medical experimentation.

Beagle911 recommends obedience training for your dog. Why is that? Most dogs available through rescue groups have not had the easiest life. Many have been ignored, abused, or just not treated kindly. They need a lot of love, but they also need training. Beagles are great pack animals, and as such are more comfortable in an environment where there are rules, and leaders. Obedience training can help establish you as the leader (instead of the dog), which can reduce some unwanted behaviors (such as toy guarding and aggression), and just make life easier by having a well-behaved dog. AND, the obedience classes also provide the attending humans with a much better understanding of their new family member, and how they need to relate to the situation. People training is an absolute good part of obedience training.

The Mt. Nittany Dog Training Club in State College offers various classes in obedience, including Rescue 101, one-on-one training sessions geared towards adopted dogs and any specific behavior issues that need to be addressed. These sessions are scheduled by request. Beginners classes and other, more advanced classes are offered periodically. Click here to check out their schedule.
