My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Part of a Bonded Pair with Luke Franklin

Meet Bo and Luke - the fabulous beagle brothers! These two are bonded and must be adopted together. They are estimated to be between 8 and 10, but foster mom thinks they could be a bit younger. Luke is slightly more reserved than Bo, but both are up for a good time. They are extremely affectionate to people and are perfect snugglers...both with their human(s) and with each other. Bo and Luke excel at all things beagle - eating, sniffing, baying, napping, and more eating. They need a home with a secure yard as they love to sniff and explore. A yard would not be needed with consistent walks, and given their creativity in escaping, they might be better without one. They absolutely LOVE their walks!! The boys have pleasant hound voices, but they WILL use them when on a scent, so townhome, apartment living, and neighbors who don't appreciate houndsong are not options for Bo and Luke. Bo has occasional mild seizures which are well controlled with medication. They are learning to walk on the leash and love going to the park for a good sniff and meander. They do wonderfully with other dogs, and are being fostered with Ben who is their constant playmate (in case anyone wants a ready-made beagle starter pack!) They are good in the crate and are fine being crated together when necessary. The lucky person or family who adopts Bo and Luke will never be bored, lonely, or lack entertainment ever again. They are true gems with a ton of love to give!

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."
