Beanie, a.k.a., Queen Baltimore, and sometimes affectionately called Jelly Bean by her foster mom, is a beautiful, sweet, playful, gentle, loving, and goofy girl who has made amazing progress since her rescue in June. We don’t know much about her past, but she was initially very fearful and chose to spend a lot of time in her crate during the first two months in her foster home.

Among other things, Beanie loves sniffing around the fenced yard, playing with the resident beagles, raiding the recycle bin, and the tasty treats that her mom doles out from the vegetable garden, especially fresh green beans! She craves affection and quickly warms up to strangers, especially if they sit on the floor and pet her a lot. Beanie has adjusted nicely to the daily routine, but she can still be startled by new things. In fact, she’d prefer that her foster mom not clutter the floor with anything that doesn’t normally belong there – grocery bags, step stools, laundry baskets – and she’s not too keen on the television.

Beanie’s a gem in the crate; leash training is going better than expected, especially when accompanied by another dog; she’s made excellent progress on housetraining; and she’s learning some basic commands (e.g., sit, come, crate). Beanie is vocal only when sights and sounds startle her while outdoors. As is the case with shy dogs, Beanie should initially be supervised while outside, especially in a new environment and even in a securely fenced yard.

Beanie’s ideal home would be on the quieter side and include patient people committed to helping her build her confidence; continued leash and possibly some obedience training; lots of love and affection; another confident, friendly, and playful dog; a securely fenced yard; and a crate. When playing in her foster home, Beanie initiates play and unaggressively holds her own with one of the resident dogs who sometimes turns into a jerk during doggie games! She loves to run zoomies in the yard, and when she’s really excited for meals, she’ll bounce around and gleefully jump into and out of her crate.

Adoption events are still a little scary for Beanie, so her personality and best qualities shine through in more comfortable environments. Interested approved adopters are invited – and encouraged – to meet Beanie at her foster home.

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.
