Big Sister Loosey came from the Norco shelter. She is what we call a Golden Beagle (labrador retriever x beagle).  Sporting a beautiful silky red coat, she is 6 years young, 45# and a great family companion.  She is very compatible with dogs of all sizes as well as people of all ages.  She's a dog that's going to be immediately at home and you'll feel like she's been with you a long time!

She is good with children and housetrained.  Loves her walks and you're gonna need to work a bit on her not pulling - we can tell you what to do!  Loves to be in the big house with her peeps - leave on music, animal planet or some activities for her to engage her mind and body when left alone.  She likes to be where the action is!  Would love another dog in her life.  Cut her food intake by half and substitute with green beans in any form...frozen, fresh, canned.....good way to slim a dog down.....

BTW - she now answers to Loosey!

Newest pics are the first three, taken this year:  Loosey has lost some of her weight though not all of it.  She is a sweet gal - we're sure plenty of walks, low-fat kibble n'some more green beans will help her out.  A dedicated foster home is welcomed!!!

Are you my furrever family?

For further info on the adoption process, please visit our home page and check out the "Adopt a Dog" section where very thorough instructions await.  All our dogs are spayed/neutered, micorchipped, and  fully vaccinated before adoption; they have been wormed, bathed, socialized, walked daily and much loved; each adoptee leaves with a leash, collar, and all medical records.  

The beauty of coming to our Apple Valley sanctuary is that you can see all 90+ dogs!   No more weekend mobiles—only special events. Maybe if there are enuff appointments, we could see you in  El Monte or Orange County or nearby. Email your application and ask for more details!

About Beagles and Buddies

About Our Rescue Group...

Please visit our website before emailing... most everything about the adoption process is answered!

We hope this material will help you decide if a Beagles & Buddies canine companion should be in your future. If you're considering a "rescued companion", you will need to know that all dogs that enter our rescue are screened before they are available for adoption. They are checked for temperament problems, given all required vaccines, spayed or neutered and are socialized. A donation is requested as well as a signed adoption contract.

Donations range from $150 - $750 depending on the age and breed. We support our non-profit and no-kill sanctuary from funds generated by these donations, therefore, puppy and pure-bred donations, which are higher, help keep the older, less adoptable dogs from harms way. Our older dogs often require dental care, blood work and other attention. We also have a great track record at finding our older canine companions great homes, as well!

We are looking for serious people and families who will be responsible canine companion adopters; which means making the dog part of your family, providing inside/outside homes, quality food, veterinary care, attending training classes and making a commitment to the dog for the rest of its' life, through good times and bad.

If you fit this description, we look forward to helping you find a canine companion suitable for your family - because that's what we do best!


Beagles & Buddies is a no-kill sanctuary for unwanted or abandoned dogs, established in 1992 as the official breed rescue for Beagles and other hound dogs.

We specialize in purebred and mixed Beagles, but we also rescue Basset, Blue and Red Tick, Plott, Black and Tans, Tree Walker Coon Hounds, Dachshunds, and (mostly small) dogs of other breeds.

The kennel is a member of H.A.R.T. a nonprofit animal welfare and social service agency serving Southern California.

Beagles & Buddies volunteers work tirelessly to find secure, happy new homes for as many of the resident dogs as possible.
