Beau's Story...
Meet Beau, an eight week old (21-04-15), male Beagle/Black Labrador mix who weighs in around 8 lbs at the moment. He tells us that he would like an active family who wants him to sit on the couch and cuddle after a busy day. He is delightful and becoming more and more accustomed to living with people in a house. Beau added that he would really like to attend obedience training because he wants to be the very best dog ever for his family.

A loving, happy dog, Beau has the most beautiful black, shiny coat, a gorgeous face, long ears, and inquisitive eyes. Beau is comfortable with everyone – young and old. He is active, agile, fast, and enjoys play fighting but he also loves cuddling and getting belly rubbed. He has a quiet temperament and is happy to lay and play on his bed and goes quietly goes to sleep in his night crate. He gets along with all dogs, but has never met a cat so we don’t know how he would be with one. Beau is not a barker, and would be comfortable in any setting but preferably an urban or rural house with a fenced in yard. He will need daily walks and exercise because of his breeds.

As with all puppies, Beau will need a firm hand until he is fully trained. He is young, neither housebroken nor leash trained, and still displays puppy behaviour, chews yummy forbidden objects, and sometimes forgets the rules but he seems to be learning quickly. We provide him with many chew toys and bones, and he is always carrying something with him. He’s received his first sets of puppy vaccines but is too young to be neutered yet. He will be vetted as needed until he is adopted. Beau’s adoption fee is $150 with $50 returned when we receive proof that he has been neutered.

Beau is neither housebroken nor leash trained but he is learning the rules of the household. Beau’s adoption fee is $175, with $75 returned once we receive proof that he is neutered.

For more information on Beau, please contact Louise Vande Wiele at, and we will respond as quickly as possible. Meanwhile, get to know our process by reading the following.

Anyone wanting to adopt a dog from the RARFS is expected to fill out an adoption application, provide references, sign an adoption contract, agree to a home visit, and finally to pay an adoption fee. Once the application is received, references checked, and a home visit completed, and everything is satisfactory, families can take their new family member home. Should a dog adopted from RARFS need to be rehomed, we ask that the dog be returned to us, or that we approve the new home. We have a no questions asked return policy, but fees will not be reimbursed.

Families who rent must provide a letter from their landlord stating that they are allowed to have a dog listing any size or breed restriction.

We prefer that families come and pick up their new family member, but a licensed pet transport is available. Should we need to transport dogs to their new homes, the adopter will need to pay $150 per animal.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Beau, a Cookeville Beagle/Labrador Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Beagle/Labrador Retriever for sale in Cookeville, or seeking a Beagle/Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Cookeville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cookeville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Cookeville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Beagle/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Beagle/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cookeville paves the way for another one to be saved.
