My story

Meet Max! Max is an "honorary" beagle, but we could not pass up those beautiful floppy ears. Our best guess is that Max is mainly Pointer with a little herding dog thrown in. He's 7-8 years old, about 45 lbs, and neutered. Max is an active dog with an active mind, so he will need an owner who appreciates these things about him. He loves toys, games and running, but will do ANYTHING for string cheese! He's got a fun personality, loves people, and takes treats oh so nicely. Max knows a few simple commands and with the magic cheese is learning more.

As a hunting dog, Max does have a strong prey drive, so we will not place him with cats, small dogs, small furry others, or reptiles. Max will do well in a home with a large, securely fenced yard. He didn't have the best life up until now, but thanks to the good folks at the shelter and Beagle Rescue he is on the way to finding his forever family.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

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 $400. 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.

Go meet their pets

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.

More about this rescue

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."
