Hello out there- Big Buster here, but not so big anymore! I am 10 years old and I have recently lost a lot of my extra weight, and I look pretty good now, if I do say so myself. I am moving a lot faster and can take much longer walks now- and I really like to go on them. I do not sleep nearly as much as I used to, and I have started to want to snuggle a bit- and especially like to burrow under a blanket on the couch and get all comfy. And guess what- I managed to find room on the bed at night. Mom has to help me up there, but I really like to sleep there now, instead of on the floor. If my new home does not want me on the bed, I am sure I can readjust, as I sometimes just stay out in the living room on the couch.

I sometimes join in chasing around with my beagle and golden housemates, and really enjoy sun bathing in the yard. They like to go out in the yard and chase birds. I go along and watch and sometimes run around a little with them. They also like to bark at the cats that roam the neighborhood. Sometimes I join in, but the people who turned me in said I like cats but I definitely prefer dogs. But mostly, I just like to go wherever my foster Mom is and keep her company. I do not pester her for constant attention-I just like to be where she is. I like to stretch out on the floor and take a nap...Mom says I snore!

I am still very food motivated, but have learned it is not polite to bark at Mom when she is eating. My Mom jokes that food is the biggest motivator in my life and may not be great for a family with small children because of this. I am very good about letting someone know if I want to go out if the doggy door is closed. I have not had one single accident. I have been going to some of the adoption events and feel much more secure than I did at first. I even stayed in the pen with some of the other dogs at the last one I attended; when I first started going, I had to be right next to Mom.

Well, just want you folks to know that I am still out here looking for a new forever home. I still do not play with toys much- but sure enjoy a nice rawhide bone. I would make someone a nice companion, as I am not very demanding-except for breakfast and dinner; I will let you know when it is time to feed me!

About Arizona Beagle Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Arizona Beagle Rescue (AZBR) is a statewide 501(c)3 non-profit, all-volunteer animal welfare organization dedicated to saving homeless beagles through rescue efforts, adoption and education on the breed. AZBR works in cooperation with animal shelters and humane agencies throughout AZ to reduce the euthanasia of adoptable animals by providing foster homes, veterinary services and training for all the beagles in our care. AZBR offers breed specific resources and training referrals to promote lifelong relationships between beagles and their companions.

AZBR operates solely on donations and has no shelter of its own; instead a statewide network of volunteers open their homes and hearts to provide foster care for rescued dogs until qualified, loving forever homes are found.

Come Meet Our Pets...

AZBR is an all-volunteer organization. Dogs are fostered in volunteer homes. Beagles can be seen at more than a dozen adoption events throughout the year.
