Facts about Rusty

  • Breed: Beagle
  • Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)

All our dogs are spayed/neutered and fully vetted. Senior dogs receive extra bloodwork and we try to do dental cleanings on any dogs that need them. Most of the dogs in our care are crate-trained and cat tested. We test with kids when we can. Our process can seem involved and long - we appreciate your patience. Adopting a dog is not like buying a candy bar in the checkout lane; it should never be a last-minute decision or one that is not fully thought out.



ADOPT ME

Rusty and his sister, Faith, were surrendered to an overcrowded shelter by their owner. The owner indicated that Rusty and Faith were "outside" dogs and unwanted. Well, that's all changed! Once they stepped foot into their foster home, they have enjoyed every minute of their new life as "inside" dogs! Rusty is a 6-year-old beagle. He's a shy boy who takes his ques from Faith. He loves to snuggle and sunbathe. He would love a forever home that will give him and his sister the love, care, and security they deserve. Rusty and Faith are very attached. We suspect they may be litter mates. They lost everything when they were surrendered to the shelter, and we can't bear for them to lose each other. They MUST be adopted together!



Like what you see? Fill out our online application! We work on a first received, first approved, first adopted basis. We definitely encourage people who are interested in adopting, even if they haven't found the right dog yet, to fill out an application. Our process can take as long as two weeks (we work day jobs!) so having an already approved application speeds things up considerably when you see a dog that catches your eye.



About Atlanta Beagle Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Atlanta Beagle Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit Georgia corporation. We are a small group of dedicated beagle lovers doing our best to match fabulous dogs with fabulous homes. We like to think of ourselves as more of a match-making service than a rescue, because we like people too! We all have day jobs so this is a part-time labor of love. We never take in more dogs than we can handle so we are never in rescue "crisis" mode.

Our Adoption Process...

Please fill out our online adoption form (http://www.atlantabeaglerescue.org/adoptionform.php) if you are even remotely interested in a dog. We work full-time jobs that are not beagle rescue so our priority in responding to emails goes to completed applications. Note: there are several required fields on the form and if they are not filled in you may get an error on submittal.

Our non-refundable adoption fee is $250 for dogs over 6 months old and $300 for dogs under 6 months old. All dogs are spayed/neutered, dewormed, current on all vaccines, heartworm negative, have their teeth cleaned if they need it, and microchipped. We frequently spend the time and money to run bloodwork to check for thyroid issues if our vet feels it is warranted. All senior dogs (generally over 8-10 years) get a full senior blood panel work up as standard procedure. We generally foster all dogs for at least two weeks as well to make a solid assessment of behavior, personality and general health. We want our new beagle owners to have a dog that is ready to go "out of the box".

Our policy is "first approved, first adopted". Once you are approved we will set up a time for you to meet the dog. We do this to minimize stress on the dogs, and us. We all have full-time jobs and want to meet with people who are serious about adopting from us, not a "casual looker".

We will have some regular adoption events after the first of the year and will post them on our main website and also send out reminders in our email newsletter (http://news.atlantabeaglerescue.org).
