Lyla Garrett
~ 4-5 yrs old - 25 lbs ~ Fostered in Woodbridge, VA

This little girl who so recently gave birth is a diamond in the rough. Owner surrendered to the shelter, she lived her life in an outdoor pen 24/7 with little socialization and only occasional food and water. Lyla is very scared right now and is therefore a flight risk. Fortunately, she has an experienced foster home who will help her relax and grow her confidence. We think she'll be a fast learner. Lyla cowered at the back of her crate when taken off the transport from the shelter, but very quickly warmed up to the idea of gentle arms and a soothing voice. She melted into our volunteers' embrace, hung on every soft word and adored having her ears rubbed. She was a cooperative subject at her photo shoot and slept all the way back to Baltimore. Inside the vet's office, though, she reverted to her wary, scared self and it was difficult to leave her there.

We are absolutely delighted that she's now in a foster home and learning how to be a house pet. Lyla may one day blossom into a kid-loving gal, but it's going to take her awhile to get there and she needs to do it at her own pace. Stay tuned while her foster mom gets to know her.

A progress report will be issued soon! A securely fenced yard or dedicated leash walking is a must! If Lyla sounds like the perfect girl for you, please e-mail icanhelp@beaglemaryland.org!

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.
