Hello, hello! My name is Jimmy Dean and I am a 6 yr. old beagle boy that was surrendered to a shelter in South Carolina. I don’t know why my previous owner didn’t want me anymore, but that is his/her loss! Penny Angels agreed to rescue me and help me find another place to live. I spent 2 weeks in a foster home and traveled up to NJ and PABR on June 24. I will be at Petsmart on Saturday from 11-3 pm so that I can try to sniff out my new owner!

There is probably a certain image that you visualize when you hear the words, ‘Jimmy Dean’, and you wouldn’t be too far off in your thinking; at my last vet visit, I weighed 49 lbs.! I have already lost a pound or two in my foster home, so I am definitely making progress! The vet did some lab work and checked my thyroid, just to make sure it wasn’t contributing to my extra weight. The test turned out fine, so it looks like a healthy diet and some exercise will become a part of my new life! I am a bit of a couch potato, so an active home with someone who is willing to take me outside for walks would be ideal. For now, there is just more of me to love!

Here are some things that my foster mom wanted you to know about me: “Jimmy Dean is a sweet boy that prefers people; he is my shadow. He is ok with the smaller dogs, but is not comfortable with those larger than him. He has ignored the cats and we have not had any kids for him to meet. He is house trained and has not been crated while here. (He is not fond of the crate and will only go in it when being fed.) He has not shown any destructive behavior when left alone in the house. He does not like to be picked up OR have his nails trimmed. (These 2 areas will be a challenge for some people, but the right beagle owner will figure out how best to work with him.) He is easy to walk and likes to play ‘chase’ with the smaller dogs. He will run after a ball, but will not bring it back. (That is YOUR job!) He likes to ride in the car without being crated. He is easy to bathe and prefers to sleep in my bed.”

In Rescue, Jimmy Dean is a great boy! He is house trained and likes to 'chill' with the other beagles. Could he be the right doggie for you? Come to Petsmart on Saturday and meet sweet Jimmy Dean!

About Penny Angels Beagle Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Penny Angels Beagle Rescue is a non-profit organization whose mission is to safely rehome unwanted, abandoned, injured, senior, or stray beagles. We are dedicated to taking in unwanted beagles from shelters or private homes. The dogs that come into our Rescue are examined by a veterinarian, tested for heartworms, brought up-to-date with vaccinations, and spayed or neutered. If they need special care, it is provided. All dogs are microchipped before being adopted.

If you are interested in adopting one of our beagles, please contact us directly so we can start the adoption process. We require both personal and vet references. We need to be able to verify that you are a homeowner or that you rent a property that allows you to have pets. Having a fenced yard is a plus, but not a requirement. Any adoptions that do not work out must be brought back to our rescue as per the signed contract.
