Story
Hi. My name is Sadie Pickles and I need to find a person or family that will love me forever. I am a female beagle-mix. I am approx. 3 ½ yrs. old and weigh ~ 42 lbs. I was recently surrendered to Penny Angels Beagle Rescue because my previous owner said that I love attention and would do anything for it. During a petting session by my previous owner, I snapped at the other dog in the home when he tried to be a part of the ‘session’, and I also broke skin on my owner’s hand. I have also growled and snapped at the grandkids when I lived with them. I don’t know what happened to make me act that way. It would be best for me to find a home with an experienced dog owner with older children. Because of my history, no small or young kids (including grand-kids) should be left unsupervised around me. I have a lot of energy and would do well with someone who can give me one-on-one attention, though I am also an independent girl. I get along fine with the other dogs in Rescue but probably shouldn’t go to a home with another high energy dog. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to take me to training classes to see how you can better address potential issues that might arise. I am spayed and up-to-date with my vaccinations. I am using a doggie door in Rescue during the day and will need to learn new rules in your home. I am a sweet, playful, and loving girl. I am very smart and inquisitive, and I know some basic commands. I am a fast learner, too, and I love to please people. I walk well with a harness but would also be good in a home with a fenced-in yard. If you could take me for walks to work off some of my energy (or play with me inside or outside in the yard), that would be good for me. I am crate-trained and love my crate, though I haven’t needed to use it as much lately; I was given full run of the house in my previous home without problems. (My large crate, crate pads, and dog bed are included with my adoption.) I really hope that I can find someone willing to give me a second chance. If you are interested in adopting Sadie Pickles, please fill out an application and submit it to Penny Angels Beagle Rescue. Her adoption fee is $225, cash or check. The application is available at www.pennyangelsbeaglerescue.com. If your application is approved, you will be contacted by email or phone and then will complete the adoption process at PetSmart in Mays Landing, NJ on Saturday between 11-2 pm. If you have any questions, contact beagler534@comcast.net or emnase@aol.com, or call Penny Angels Beagle Rescue at 609-965-9476. Thank you!

Story
Hi there! My name is Perry and I am a handsome beagle boy in search of a new home. I am approx. 2 years old and weigh ~38 lbs. I was recently surrendered to Penny Angels because my previous owner had health issues and was not able to properly take care of me. I am neutered and up-to-date with vaccinations. I have a wonderful temperament. I am a happy & loving boy. I will snuggle with you and give you lots of doggie love. I am crate trained but will need some help with house-training. I mostly used wee-wee pads indoors in the past but have been using the doggie door during the day in Rescue. I will need to learn new rules in your home. I would also benefit from basic training so that I can be your very best boy. I am strong and tend to pull when being walked, so keep that in mind if you don’t have a fenced-in yard and need to walk me. I get along fine with other dogs and would be happy to have a doggie friend but I would probably be okay by myself, too. Can you make room for me in your heart and home? If you are interested in adopting Perry, please fill out an application and submit it to Penny Angels Beagle Rescue. His adoption fee is $225, cash or check. The application is available at www.pennyangelsbeaglerescue.com. If your application is approved, you will be contacted by email or phone and then will complete the adoption process at PetSmart in Mays Landing, NJ on Saturday between 11-2 pm. If you have any questions, contact beagler534@comcast.net or emnase@aol.com, or call Penny Angels Beagle Rescue at 609-965-9476. Thank you!

Story
We rescued Ash about a month and a half ago and she has been amazing. Training has gone very well, she's great with our 6 year old, has 0 aggresion to food or toys, and is very gentle. She goes on runs every morning and even let's our 6 year old walk her on a leash. If it wasn't for our daughters health Ash would stay with us forever, but sadly after adopting we found that our daughter is highly allergic and we must puck our daughters health over Ash. She did great at the groomer, does well in public areas, and is a huge cuddler. (Thinks she's a 10 lb dog sometimes). She also loves to play fetch with balls and other toys.

Story
Meet Stella, a loving playful cuddly almost 3 year old silver lab! Stella was raised in a loving home with one other Labrador retriever. She knows basic obedience very well (sit, stay, lay down, paw, down, place and cage) I can send videos of this as well. She is completely house trained and is good on a leash and wont run away when off leash. She absolutely loves car rides and cuddling on the couch with you. She will literally become your best friend especially if you spoil her with treats. Stella needs to be in a home with no other pets she is a people pleaser not an animal pleaser. Although she can be playful with other dogs we know Stella will thrive in a new home that has no other pets. She is currently in training, up to date on shots and neutered. Looking for a home with a big yard and someone to love and play with her. We hope you will love Stella as much as we have!

Story
Loki is about 5 years old. He is very sweet, super obedient and loyal. He knows basic commands, is well trained and very food motivated. I am looking to rehome him due to his overly protective nature. He has always been a little bit reactive but knew I was the alpha, as I also have another calmer male pitbull mix. As my girlfriend spends more time here, Loki has become very overprotective of her and has started to become a little more reactive towards my other dog. My girlfriend also has a terrier mix, and ideally we'd like to move in together but know that Loki will see her dog as a threat. There hasn't been a major situation, but we're looking to find him a hoome where he can thrive and be the only pet. He has never been agressive towards people. He is very sweet and would make an amazing pet to a family looking to have just one dog. He has a lot of good years left and we want to make sure he will be able to have the best life possible.

Story
Quinten is a very loveable boy who was abused in his very short life. so he does have a bite history. A familiy with no small children or other animals will be best for this boy..He's a loving loyal dog once he settles in Needs a single family home because he becomes protective of his owners He must have a leaded, someone that shows authority. He will need to adjust slowly as of his abused history please give Quinten a chance
