Benji is a love. He is sweet, quirky and adorable.
Benji was surrendered along with his sister when his owner became ill and could no longer care for her dogs. Even though his sister has been adopted, Benji still is happy to play with all of the toys and run (slowly) outside with the other dogs.
Benji has that beagle appetite so he is fed in the crate. He has been known to be able to sniff out unopened bags of dog food and knock them off of the shelf to rip them open. He has been found twice in his foster home with his head in a bag of food that was left unopened on the pantry shelf. It is a good thing he loves vegetables because he tends to be fed more veggies like green beans in his food than kibble since he does antics that causes weight gain.
Benji absolutely loves his dog beds. He usually will pull one out of the crate to lie on it while watching TV. He has even pulled dog beds out of the bedroom and dragged them down the hall to the family room. But if he finds a place on the couch next to a person who will pet him, he will stay there forever reveling in the experience.
At night he has a special bed on the floor next to his foster's bed. He sometimes rolls around on it making funny sounds of happiness before he drifts off to sleep.
Benji can see, but we think his vision is not the best. His hearing also is not what it use to be when he was younger. He does like to howl. He has a quieter howl than most beagles though.
Benji is very endearing. You will find Benji will steal your heart if you take him home.

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.)
