Benny is a handsome, young, active, and affectionate beagle boy. He is so typical that he has some common beagle puppy traits...being mouthy when he plays, chewing on the occasional inappropriate items, etc. Benny loves to play and he loves to snuggle. :) He is house- and crate-trained and will willingly spend quiet time in his crate, even when his human family is home. In addition to playing, Benny enjoys his snuggle time and will usually just melt for a belly- and or ear-rub, although if he is feeling playful he will try to turn it into a game. He will also bring a rope or other toy to initiate a game of tug when he is feeling playful, too. To date Benny has had little interest in the resident cats, and he has gotten along well with dogs of all ages and sizes. He would do well as an only dog as well provided his adopters insure that he gets enough exercise!

The biggest difference between Benny and a typical beagle (if there is such a thing) is that he MUST sleep crated. Benny has a sleep-disorder called RBD (REM-Sleep Behavior Disorder) that causes him to have episodes where he snaps, growls and lunges and anybody (or any dog) in the vicinity may be in his way at this time and end up being bitten. Benny is NOT AWAKE during these episodes (despite what it looks like) and THIS IS NOT A BEHAVIORAL OR TRAINING PROBLEM!! He is not awake and does not have conscious control during these episodes - he is truly asleep. If awoken during an incident, Benny will simply look around, curl back up and go right back to sleep. In his foster home he usually has one or two episodes a night, although he has had more some nights, usually following excessive stimulation. This is quite manageable in a vigilant household. You just need to make sure that Benny sleeps in a crate! :)

About Beagle Rescue League

About Our Rescue Group...

We are the co-founders and volunteers of Cascade Beagle Rescue-East who have branched off to better serve the needs of beagles here on the East Coast.

Beagle Rescue League, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation formed for the purpose of rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing unwanted beagles. Our beagles find their way into our program through many venues – from shelters, research facilities, and with the help of animal control officers. All of our dogs are brought up to date on vaccinations, and we make sure they are heartworm negative, neutered/spayed and micro-chipped before they go to their forever homes.

Every dog is fostered in a private home and we try our very best to match pets and new owners based on the the proper fit for both parties.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Since we do not have a physical kennel facility, and our dogs are in private foster homes, we are not able to accommodate visits. Please visit our website for upcoming events which may showcase some available beagles. In general, though, adopters need to go through the adoption process in order to have a meeting scheduled with an available beagle in its foster home.

Our Adoption Process...

We have a thorough adoption process requiring an online adoption application, personal, veterinary, and landlord reference checks, as well as a phone interview. Dogs are matched with adopters based on what the adopter indicates they are looking for, and based on what we feel would best suit our available dogs. An in person visit is required with all family members at the dog's foster home. (Dogs will not be shipped to adopters.)

Our adoption fee is $250 for adult beagles.
