Lady
Age: 2 - 3 yrs.
Sex: female
spayed

  !

Lady stopping in to say HI! This ~25 lb gal hound found herself a stray with no one looking. We can’t fathom why - Lady is sweet, leashed trained, has the body (bit “fluffy”) and demeanor of a dog used to a home. She is happy to see you and enjoys her walks. Around 3-5 years old she is awaiting a simple dental before she can go to her forever home.

She has done well with intro to other dogs, we don’t know about cats or kids but she is a pretty people loving pup. She might jump on small kids seeking attention.

Maxwell
Age: 2-3 yrs.
Sex: male
neutered

  !

>Meet Maxwell, a 2-3 year old beagle boy around 29 lbs. Currently in foster with Theresa and Terry. Maxwell is neutered, UTD all vetcare, microchipped and ready for his new family.
His fosters say this…
Maxwell will make a wonderful companion or addition to almost any home. He is very sweet, loving and pretty easy going. Maxwell is good with the 4 other dogs I have, not reactive unless they are getting in his face too much as that overwhelms him. I imagine he would be good with older dog experienced children as he loves to be pet and loved. Maxwell loves to fetch the ball. He is smart so learning commands would be pretty easy.
Maxwell is a slow eater, actually chews his food. At first he wanted you to be in the same room while he was eating, but that need stopped after a few days.
Maxwell is very agile, can jump from the ground to on top of pretty much anything so continued training of both you and he to keep desirable objects out of reach a must.
Maxwell is a digger, has dug two holes that he can get out under at the chain link fence in just a few days. He basically just wanted to go into the garden area next door as his fosters were working there. He does not like to he kenneled yet, he will require a sturdy kennel and comfort training to adjust to the newness of crate training. Maxwell did figure out how to open the latch initially. He is better if we put him in the bedroom with us, but even then he only wants to sleep a few hours in the kennel initially.
Maxwell did initially leave his mark on the furniture a few times the first day, but has been much better since then, learning and adjusting to house scents. Foster does have a doggie door that he has 24 hour access to and utilizes. No doggy door will require a bit more training on alert to go. Possibly reaching to pee on command or bell training.
Maxwell has that hunter instinct and does have the beagle bark. He will try to get out to chase the squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits and even the dog next door when it went onto the back portion of our property.
Maxwell has that common beagle stubbornness in the week here with us so far but is learning by direction and repetition plus other dog example.
Maxwell is very sweet, but needs someone that has a secure backyard, willing to keep up leash training and patience/direction a young beagle raised with little guidance needs. He must go to a home with another dog for company.

Garth
Age: 6-8 yrs.
Sex: male
neutered

  !

Garth is initially pretty skittish, but a very sweet boy that actually loves attention and petting. He may run away first and even bark at you, but he just wants to come up to you on his terms at first. His tail initially appeared to be permanently and tightly tucked, but he seems to be loosening up with time and even wags his tail now. If I want to get him to go somewhere or do something and he doesn’t do it by just calling him- He is very easily leashed or picked up (he usually hits the floor in fear, but let’s you easily leash him and pet him or pick him up)- and then when leashed he seems to do it without any problem. Examples would be coming in through the back door after going outside, getting into the crate when we leave the house, coming up stairs, etc. However, he is food motivated and sometimes treats do the trick. He loves soft stuffed squeaky toys. Sometimes he just likes to rip the stuffing out of them. He has done great with my senior male and female beagle crew, but does have a history of not getting along with some younger dogs and intact males. He needs to be fed separately, which I do with my dogs anyway. I have given treats out as a group on multiple occasions and not had any issues. He was a stray and is not yet house trained, but he keeps his crate clean overnight and when placed in there when I leave during the day. We have just started working with belly bands in the house, but are not successful yet. He rides well in the car and likes Starbucks pup cups. He also likes my wine (I'm not at all promoting giving dogs alcohol- his tongue could barely reach it). He needs a patient family willing to work with his initially skittish behavior and finish working on his house training. Please share and consider giving this sweet older man (guesstimate 8’ish) a home. You could also consider a foster to adopt option to see if he might fit in your home or with your other dogs.

BB
Age: 3 yrs.
Sex: female
spayed

  !

Meet BB. This ~ 21 lb tri color gal has had a hard adjustment from a hectic home, through shelter to a foster. At first she was scared and reactive to the dogs in the home. Her experienced and patient foster gave her time to decompress and heal (she was recently spayed and hadn’t had pups that long ago?). She now plays with the youngest in the home. Her foster says this.
“BB is a sweet little girl that likes to sit and cuddle with her person. She is good on a leash and rides well in a car. She is being leash walked as she is a door bolter so no small kids in the home. She is not a fan of the crate and will need time and patience to get her adjusted to a kennel for her safety. Her current foster has pee pads down for a senior in the home and she will use those or go when taken outside.”

We are looking for a second transition foster to see how she handles change before adoption. Knoxville area. Message Beth.

Becca
Age: 4-5 yrs.
Sex: female
spayed

  !

Looking to adopt an Envigo beagle? Becca was raised with the same lack of socialization and actually worse conditions spending the first two years literally wired shut in a beagle lot with bags of food tossed over the fence. We had to literally cut the rusty wiring and climb over to get her out. That was 2 years ago and she was almost 2 years old then. Immensely grateful for her committed foster Johnna. Search: Becca SOS Beagles Tennessee for her story.
