Facts about Rebel

  • Breed: Beagle/Basset Hound Mix
  • Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Rebel is a very special pup. He had a hard first year of his life, making it near impossible for him to trust people. He has spent the better part of this year learning there are good people out there and life is full of fun stuff and love. Rebel will never be the life of the party, but to his few people, he will remain loyal, true, and loving.
Rebel is a 1.5 year old beagle/basset hound mix. He has a stunning blue eye, leading to more of his ruggedly good looks. He is rather quiet for a hound, only making noises when he is happy. He is affectionately referred to as a seal, as he uses his stubby little legs to slide around on you and makes little barking noises for belly rubs. Rebel takes a few days to sufficiently warm up to new people, but will follow anyone around that holds his leash. After a steady day of treats and loving, he is yours forever, loyal and true. Rebel has to make the first contact, so patience and understanding is important on any future family’s part.
Rebel would be happiest with 1-2 adults, no kids, and no other pets. He needs room to shine! He does go to PetSmart and on outings with his foster, but relies on her to show him confidence and to let others know he doesn’t like to be patted, but rather he likes to observe. He is crate trained and at first, prefers to spend most of his time there. Over time, he comes into his own and flourishes. He is mostly house trained and getting into a routine helps his confidence and manners immensely. His favorite spot is the back of the couch during TV time and cuddling on the bed beside you in the wee hours of the morning.
If you have a single spot for Rebel and have patience to let him get to know you, email Amanda.lin@bigfluffydogs.com and submit an application today.


If you are interested in adopting this dog, please apply online, at http://www.bigfluffydogs.com/online-app.php. Our main website, www.bigfluffydogs.com has more information about us and the rescue process. NOTE TO EMAILERS FROM ADOPT-A-PET: WE DO NOT RESPOND TO EMAIL INQUIRIES WITHOUT AN APPLICATION. WE REGRET WE CANNOT RESPOND TO EVERY EMAIL, BUT UNLESS YOU FILL OUT AN APPLICATION, WE DO NOT KNOW YOU EXIST. All known information about an individual dog is provided in it's listing. We do our best to provide accurate information, but adopters must understand that each home is different and the dog may behave differently in a new home. Dogs are creatures of their environment and you help make the dog what it will be. Homes considering adopting a puppy must be prepared for:1.) Flexible schedules for potty training. Puppies can only "hold it" for one hour per month of age (ex. a 4 month old puppy can only go 4 hours without a potty break).2.) Crate training until the puppy is at least one year old, to prevent chewing on inappropriate things when you can't supervise.3.) Socialization: The more positive and varying experiences as a puppy the better, both in and out of your home.4.) Puppy behavior and life stages are equivalent to a human toddler. It takes at least a full year to have a calmer, well adjusted dog. Patience is required and when your dog's behavior is a positive experience for you and those around you, your patience will be rewarded tenfold, for years to come.Please do not consider adopting a puppy if you have not thoroughly thought through the pros and cons of having one. So many people end up returning them after 3-5 months because they didn't realize the amount of work involved in raising a puppy.Patience, appropriate toys, socialization, and obedience training are all musts. All are time consuming, and can be expensive.All Dogs Require:Supervision with children and obedience training. Adopters that want to have good dogs must be prepared to put the time and effort into training a dog. Any dog requires work and effort, but a well trained, well socialized dog is more than worth the effort put in to get them there.

About Big Fluffy Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Big Fluffy Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping giant breed mixed breed dogs in need. We value dogs of all breeds, but we specialize in what the name says: big, fluffy dogs. We have volunteers in several states in the South and New England who work to help homeless big fluffy dogs find a home to call their own. Big Fluffy Dog Rescue works to save Great Pyrenees, Saint Bernards, Newfoundlands and their mixes from euthanasia.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our dogs are in private foster homes. If a foster home is unavailable, our dogs are boarded. , Once your application to adopt is approved, we will have you go to the home or boarding facility to meet your dog.

Our Adoption Process...

Your first step to adopting with Big Fluffy Dog Rescue is to fill out an adoption application. You can find it here:
http://fs18.formsite.com/bigfluffydogs/form952673514/index.html

Once you have done that, an adoption coordinator will call you within 7 days. We have an interview process, vet check and home visit/property verification.

Adoptions are made on a best home basis. Our goal is to have the very best home for all our dogs. We carefully screen our dogs for temperament to ensure we are placing the right dog in the right home. Keeping our dogs in private foster homes allows us to tell you all about your dog. A dog in a kennel or shelter location does not have the benefit of family interaction and it is our goal to ensure that every dog is carefully screened.

Once you are approved to adopt your dog we will set up a meet and greet at the dogs foster home. All of our adoptable dogs are in the New England area, and we encourage meetings to ensure it is the right fit.

Before taking your dog home, we require you to sign an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee of $500 for dogs over 6 months old and $600 for puppies 6 months and younger. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, have had all shots (age appropriate in the case of puppies) including bordetella (kennel cough), rabies, and the distemper/parvo series. All of our dogs have been heartworm screened and are heartworm negative, have had a clear fecal exam and are up to date on frontline and heartgaurd. This adoption fee covers any other medical treatments the dog may have had while in our care. All vet records travel with the dog. This adoption fee also covers all transport and health certificate costs we incur. We pay $150 of our adoption fee to the transport company we use and we pay $50 for the health certificate process required by law
