Bandit is a beautiful little guy with red ticking and Cleopatra eyes. It's clear that his past has traumatized him a bit. He is newly arrived from the shelter (a terrifying place for a dog) and a bit nervous with the changes in his life. He is starting to warm up to his foster mom, but steers clear of the other dogs in his temporary foster home. It's usually the other way around. We would prefer to place Bandit in a home where he wouldn't have to share the love. We would also hesitate to place him in a home with young children who's boistrousness and sudden quick movements would stress him.
Bandit is diabetic. His diabetes is well controlled, and it is inexpensive to treat, but he needs to be in a home where his medical needs will not go untended.
Bandit is a very sweet little boy whom we think will be a wonderful pet once he realizes that he no longer has anything to fear and he relaxes. He is not an instant pet, though, and will need loving patience as he learns to be a housepet.

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.
