If you are interested in adopting a dog that does not say it can be homed with a cat and wish us to cat test please let us know and we will be happy to do this.

Recently, we received a phone call about a group of Beagles who desperately needed to be saved as if no rescue could take them, they were due to be shot within a matter of days. Many Tears were asked to help but unfortunately we were full and couldn't see how we could create enough space to take them in. Hearing about their plight our amazing fosterers stepped up to help and took extra dogs into foster to create enough space at the rescue to bring them in. Beagle lovers on Facebook also heard of their story and we were blown away by how many people showed kindness and support and offered to help them.
They have now arrived with us and are settling in well. We hope that there are plenty of Beagle lovers out there who would like to offer them a home! We have named them all with names centred around the word "Hope", as for these lovely dogs their future is now full of Hope.
Beagles are a wonderful breed, but do best in homes with people who have Beagle experience and we find that ex-breeding Beagles are generally much happier with other dogs around too. These Beagles will be by donation.

13-02-24 UPDATE

Dove initially came in with a pack of ex hunting beagles, and although she doesn't necessarily have the drive of a hunting dog, she does have the brains and independence!
Dove has really come a long way in the time she has been waiting. Initially Dove was very scared of any humans. Now she comes up to me for fusses, gives me me little nose kisses, and even let's me touch all under her stomach and chest- this was Dove's biggest fear, but shes now made huge progress with this! She still isn't too keen on being handled- especially with strangers. But with me, who she trusts, she allows me to poke and prod, slowly and gently, letting me know that she's uncomfortable but not being too dramatic about it.
Dove's kennel friend is called Wish, and I've been teaching Wish to walk to heel; because of this, Dove now responds to "Wish, heel!" And will walk to heel for a treat! I know it isn't her name, but she doesn't need to know that, haha!
Dove has really got something special about her that I can't fully describe, she has got a spring in her step that I don't think I've really seen in a nervous dog before. She is independent and happy when pottering about doing her own thing. It's humans that she becomes nervous around. Given Dove's hunting background I think she mustn't have had much human interaction or handling, and just gotten used to being the independent lady that she is.
She has been in a home since initially arriving with us, and we are told that she didn't like to come in from the garden, and struggled to settle in the home. I think with a confident resident dog to copy, and a fairly structured routine, Dove will settle well. Here in kennels she knows her routine, and if it isn't near a time where she's due to go out to play, or dinner time, then she spends the rest of the day lying in bed with a chew toy.
Dove is super super playful with other dogs so she will need a confident, well rounded, playful but also cuddly resident dog to lean on. Ideally a dog who loves human interaction; as this is where she learns to copy and trust humans. As Dove's main caregiver, I know I see a different, trusting side to her that a lot of others don't, but please take my word for it- when you connect with her there really is something special there. I look after many many dogs every day, and I just can't put my finger on why I'm so so drawn and connected to Dove.
Dove needs an adult only, cat free home, with at least one resident dog, her size or bigger as she does love a rough and tumble play! She needs a secure garden, and someone who will show her love, patience, and what being a pet dog really is about. I'm sure once she is given the opportunity, she will love every second of someone doting on her. She just needs understanding and patience in the initial settling period.

Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.

PLEASE NOTE: We nearly always home dogs who have come from breeders where there is ALREADY A RESIDENT DOG living in the house. They have usually never lived in a house before and are only used to canine company. They usually get their confidence and learn faster with another dog to copy from. This also helps with house training and learning how to walk on a lead. They will make lovely pets but do need a lot of love, time and patience. If the ex breeding dog you are interested in can be an only dog it will say so in its write up. Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.
