Facts about Yankee

  • Breed: Beagle/Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Yankee is a very active playful fellow. He loves both people and dogs, and interacts well with both. Although he was born to a beagle mix mother in our rescue (Wrigley), his dad was obviously a black Labrador. He is very handsome with a soft, sleek black coat highlighted by white patches on his chest, toes and lips. He is energetic as only young dogs can be, and plays well with his foster brothers. He enjoys running around the backyard and then settling on his pillow in his foster's bedroom for the night. Yankee has great manners, is crate trained, walks well on a leash, sits on command and comes when called. He is patient at meal time and waits his turn when treats are being handed out. In general he is a well behaved dog with manners. He was raised in a loving home, but was returned to our rescue for medical reasons. Yankee does have a chronic condition that requires continued care, and for that reason Yankee is eligible for Beagle Maryland’s Friends of Winston Program. In general Yankee does not act like he is feeling badly. He races out the back door, talks to the dogs a couple of yards over, tells us when folks are passing the house with or without dogs, and plays wholeheartedly with his brothers. He is a sweet and loving guy that just needs a little extra helping hand to live a comfortable and active lifestyle as your best friend.

Adoptive Status: Neutered, UTD on shots, heartworm negative and micro-chipped.

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: Obviously, Yankee needs someone who will be attentive to his medical needs throughout the rest of his life.

Owner Aptitude Level: Nurturing, patient beginner

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.
