Ruff Ruff! My name is Alex
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Alex is the perfect family pet! He is full of energy and loves to play; and really loves to run around the backyard. He is great with other dogs and older children. He is very playful. He gives lots of kisses and is doing really well learning how to sit and wait for his food to be served. He comes when called, and even faster when the treat jar is shaken! He is completely house broken and has done well in a crate. Alex was originally adopted at 2yo and now at 7yo he finds himself homeless again! Can you imagine?! Some of the photos on his page are from when he was 2yo. You can see how he has aged and how he was allowed to become overweight. He needs someone who will pay attention to his diet and make sure he gets his daily exercise. He is the ideal dog for children over the age of 8 or for a couple. Will you give Alex another chance?
Update on Alex - Alex has lost a good amount of weight and is looking great! He also started to suffer from mild seizures and has been put on phenobarbital to keep them under control. He has been doing well with his medication and has not had any seizures since he has started it. Alex is a happy boy who is waiting for his furever family to come along!

Steps to adopt a beagle from Tampa Bay Beagle Rescue:
Read about the beagle breed to be sure this dog matches your lifestyle and personality. While we think beagles are terrific dogs, we know that no one breed is perfect for every single family. Many people adopt or purchase beagles because they are small and friendly without ever finding out more about the breed. We encourage anyone who is considering adding a beagle to their family to learn all they can about these stubborn, playful hounds!
Submit an on-line application. Just fill out the application on-line and we will automatically be notified. If you need to, you can save your application and finish it later.
Choose to receive information from us. In your settings, you have the option to receive emails and regular mail from us. Click these options to receive updates about dogs available for adoption and upcoming events such as adoption days, special activities and fundraising events.
Approval of the application is based on phone interviews and a reference & Vet check. It usually takes us 7-10 days to approve an application, but when we are very busy, it can take a little longer. Thanks for your patience!
Visit with the beagles! After you are approved, you can visit with the dogs at adoption events, usually scheduled once or twice a month. Adoption events are open to the public, but only preapproved applicants will be able to adopt the same day. (We recommend submitting the application at least 10 days in advance to ensure it is approved in time.)
We serve the entire State of Florida.
