Additional info:
Loki is an approximately 4 year old beagle mix who was surrendered by his owners when they could no longer care for him. Loki is a sweet sweet dog. He loves attention, loves to be petted and hang out near the humans. He's always very curious to know where we are in the house and wants to sit with us if possible. He sleeps all night and takes lots of naps during the day, but he's very lively at other times, especially when outdoors or when we first come home. Loki is housetrained. He never actually asks to go outside, but he hasn't had any accidents indoors yet. He does not show any aggression at all, with humans or dogs. He and our beagle run around the yard, sleep near each other on the sofa, share chew-toys. He's a really nice little friend. Loki does like to chew on things a fair amount, so he definitely needs to be crated when left alone. He enjoys being outdoors but is not super high-energy and I think would do fine with someone who is committed to giving him several long walks/day if they don't have a yard. Loki can't wait to find his forever home!

Mission Statement: Forever true to The Underdog, Rural Dog Rescue is dedicated to saving the lives of dogs in shelters who are often overlooked for adoption or rescue. We save the dogs who are at most risk of being euthanized: the hounds, the black dogs, the seniors, the sick and the broken. We make a commitment to reserve a minimum of 50% of the dogs we save to The Underdog. Root For The Underdog!

Rural Dog Rescue's home base is in Washington, DC. We support several high kill shelters that euthanize in 72 hours and whose kill rate is 70% or higher in rural areas of Virginia, West Virginia, North and South Carolina. Rural Dog Rescue also helps dogs in need in Washington, DC and Maryland.

We are 100% volunteer and foster based and no salaries are paid. 100% of your donation and adoption fee goes to helping the dogs and cats of Rural Dog Rescue.

Although we try to be as accurate as possible, Rural Dog Rescue cannot guarantee the breed or full-grown adult size of any of the dogs or puppies in its care. Because many of these dogs were found as strays or are the result of irresponsible, unplanned breeding, we do not know the dog's exact background and can only list breed and size by our best educated guess. If exact breed and size are important to you, please consider adopting a dog from a specific breed rescue - We want our dogs to be adopted by people who will love and care for them forever for who they are - no matter what breed and size they turn out to be! All dogs go to their new homes spayed or neutered, up to date on all shots, wormed (although a 2nd worming may be required), started on heart worm and flea and tick preventative and sometimes microchipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Loki, a Washington Beagle dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Beagle for sale in Washington, or seeking a Beagle dog from a breeder in Washington.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Washington 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 Washington 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 breeders who help with Beagle rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Washington paves the way for another one to be saved.
