Grandpaw (also known as Bentley) is a white and tan shih tzu, 13 lbs and at least 10 years old. The last two pics on the page are the most recent ones (April 2017). He's been here since March 2016 and is one of the staff favorites. His family turned him in because of a child's allergies. He is now blind- his left eye was removed early this year because of a painful ulcer, and he can't see out of the other one. His foster mom is taking him to a canine eye specialist to see if he can get some sight back. But he is in otherwise good health and enjoys hanging with his favorite people and walking around the yard. A volunteer has been teaching him to recognize direction commands so that he knows where to walk- he's very good with 'left' and is learning the others.

He would be a great companion dog. He's very calm and quiet (never barks) and is just happy to hang out with you, whether you're sitting or walking around the yard or going on a car trip. He doesn't like walking on a leash- he'd rather be carried or walk along by himself. Very good about his house training. He'd be great for an apartment. 

Great with kids, cats, and big and small dogs. He's never snapped at anyone and is always good mannered. He's one of our best tempered dogs. Loves being scratched.

Because of past health issues, such as anemia, he's on a high quality diet.

In addition, he has a high maintenance coat. He will need frequent brushing, grooming, and bathing (especially if he's outside often- he likes to roll around in the dirt!).

His foster home has adopted him!

For further info on the adoption process, please visit our home page and check out the "Adopt a Dog" section where very thorough instructions await.  All our dogs are spayed/neutered, micorchipped, and  fully vaccinated before adoption; they have been wormed, bathed, socialized, walked daily and much loved; each adoptee leaves with a leash, collar, and all medical records.  

The beauty of coming to our Apple Valley sanctuary is that you can see all 90+ dogs!   No more weekend mobiles—only special events. Maybe if there are enuff appointments, we could see you in  El Monte or Orange County or nearby. Email your application and ask for more details!

About Beagles and Buddies

About Our Rescue Group...

www.beaglesandbuddies.com

Please visit our website before emailing... most everything about the adoption process is answered!

We hope this material will help you decide if a Beagles & Buddies canine companion should be in your future. If you're considering a "rescued companion", you will need to know that all dogs that enter our rescue are screened before they are available for adoption. They are checked for temperament problems, given all required vaccines, spayed or neutered and are socialized. A donation is requested as well as a signed adoption contract.

Donations range from $150 - $750 depending on the age and breed. We support our non-profit and no-kill sanctuary from funds generated by these donations, therefore, puppy and pure-bred donations, which are higher, help keep the older, less adoptable dogs from harms way. Our older dogs often require dental care, blood work and other attention. We also have a great track record at finding our older canine companions great homes, as well!

We are looking for serious people and families who will be responsible canine companion adopters; which means making the dog part of your family, providing inside/outside homes, quality food, veterinary care, attending training classes and making a commitment to the dog for the rest of its' life, through good times and bad.

If you fit this description, we look forward to helping you find a canine companion suitable for your family - because that's what we do best!

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION:

Beagles & Buddies is a no-kill sanctuary for unwanted or abandoned dogs, established in 1992 as the official breed rescue for Beagles and other hound dogs.

We specialize in purebred and mixed Beagles, but we also rescue Basset, Blue and Red Tick, Plott, Black and Tans, Tree Walker Coon Hounds, Dachshunds, and (mostly small) dogs of other breeds.

The kennel is a member of H.A.R.T. a nonprofit animal welfare and social service agency serving Southern California.

Beagles & Buddies volunteers work tirelessly to find secure, happy new homes for as many of the resident dogs as possible.
