You guessed it! Chappy is no beagle! Chappy is a beautiful black and tan coonhound! The shelter worked so hard to find a rescue to take this nice boy that we just couldn't say no. For one so young, he is calm and gentle - very good with the rest of the dogs in his foster home, and has even cut the cats a break. Chappy LOVES being a house dog. He has a bit of a boarding house reach, but hey, he lives with a bunch of short beagles. This makes him somewhat of a hero amongst the gang. "Finally! Someone who can reach the Milkbones! Let's hear it for Chappy!" That said, he stops in mid-reach when told "Off!" (Although it's not the beagles who say it.) Chappy is a little bit shy in new situations, but he quickly adjusts when he realizes that he is safe.
Adoptive Status: Neutered, UTD on shots, heartworm negative and micro-chipped.

Rescue Group Info...
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."
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.
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.
