Homer Arundel
~ 5-6 yrs old ~ 26 lbs ~
Homer has been with his foster mom since September. He was moved around a lot prior to his foster home so we felt it was best to let him settle and feel secure. We are not sure about his past, whether he was abused or told to go away, or simply a shy guy who enjoys his alone time. He will often flinch or cower if you make an a quick movement and will run to his safe place if a voice is raised even slightly. He greets guests and asks for attention but will then retreat to his place. He however loves the resident beagles, whether running in the yard or laying on his back to entice play with his foster brother. He would do best in a home with a friend similar in size as he is fearful of larger dogs, but overtime may be able to overcome his fear. Homer has not been exposed to cats.
Homer prefers to sleep in his doggy bed tucked away in our son’s room in the corner. He will sometimes venture on the couch, but mostly happy to stretch out on the floor laying in the sun or catching a nice breeze from the window. He is wonderful with children and will approach any child for attention. He currently resides with a 6 year old boy whom Homer adores.

I would recommend a fenced yard, or someone who has the time to take long walks with Homer in his harness as he loves the smells of outdoors. We have not had success with the crate, although he has been a good boy with run of the house.

Homer will need a patient adopter or a family who appreciates that sometimes he just wants to be by himself. We have grown very attached to Homer and it will be a bittersweet day to see him go, but I am so very proud of his progress.

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.
