Our volunteer photographer pronounced him a "very sweet dog." He was interested in the toys she brought and it didn't matter if he was playing by himself or with her assistant. Toys RULE! Ranier loves to be petted and will remind you to keep it up, should you stop.

Most of the pictures of Rainier are of him sleeping, because that's the only time he sits still.

His foster parents are calling him Ralphie (and often "Wreck-It Ralph", as he likes to barrel through things!) because it's easier to say. He definitely looks to be a beagle/basset mix with those stumpy legs and wrinkled face. But don't let his looks and age deceive you - he can move really quickly and is always trying to fit his chunky behind under the fence! He gets along well with the resident dogs and enjoys sleeping close to at least one of them. He's learning his potty manners and walks pretty well on the leash. Overall he's a very sweet boy.

About Beagle Rescue of Southern Maryland. Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Beagle Rescue of Southern Maryland is dedicated to helping all beagles in need. Most of the dogs that come into the rescue are hunter rejects, either because they do not want to hunt, or because they are too old or simply ill. Our goal is to rehabilitate these wonderful companion dogs and place them in forever loving homes. We are a network of foster homes and rely solely on the dedication of volunteers. Our motto is: "Hug your hound, don't take him to the pound."

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a centralized location, but you can visit our website to find out when and where we hold our adoption events (usually twice a month). We also take part in special fairs and events. You can come and meet with some of our dogs then.
If you see a dog on our website that you are interested in, we request that you first fill out our Application and submit it electronically.

Our Adoption Process...

We require submission of an online application. If all requirements are met, we do a home visit and check the vet reference (when it applies). Please refer to our website to see the kinds of questions we ask. We ask for a tax-deductible adoption donation of $300. All dogs are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on their shots (rabies, distemper and parvo, bordetella), are heartworm negative and on heartworm preventative, micro-chipped and de-wormed.
