Ruff Ruff! My name is Dexter
|Breed:||Beagle||Color:||Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)||Age:||Adult|
|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Male|
I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Dexter was one of four beagles pulled from a kill shelter in South Carolina. He told us (using his best Shelby Foote accent), "Aaahm real glad ya'll were able to get us outta thaya. It wuz fixin' ta git ugly on us!" You can see in the photo that his tail is wagging in appreciation.
Dexter is heartworm positive -- the scourge of the South. His treatment will take awhile, so he will not be available for adoption until the spring. In the meantime, we will gratefully accept any donations toward his veterinary bills.
When he has settled into his foster home, we'll give you a better idea of his personality. Right now, though, he hasn't even unpacked his banjo.

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.
