Hey mister, can you help a dog out?

img_0442Thinking about getting a puppy or dog for yourself, or the family? Consider getting a Beagle. There is a beagle rescue center in Bennett Valley called Rescue For Northbay Beagles. I know the founder, and she accepts beagles from around the country. Lots come from the south (Mississippi, Alabama etc).

She gets them in batches of 2-8 weekly. I have 2 beagles of my own so I volunteer to foster them at my house if Pam runs out of room. They range in age from puppy to senior. Seems the majority are 3yrs – 7 yrs.

Take my word that beagles are the sweetest, kindest dogs. They love to be held and touched. Generally, they are great walkers (on leash) and love socializing at the local dog park. In my opinion, the only downside is that they are ruled by their noses. That means it’s hard to keep them out of the trash, off the counter, and if they get out, frequently they won’t come when they are called. The cure… if you want a beagle, you need to have a secure place for your kitchen garbage can. You need a completely fenced yard at least 4’ high that a beagle can’t jump over, and you need to pay attention to them. They will want to put their heads in your lap as soon as you sit down. They are hounds so most bay when they are excited. Baying sounds like “Arrrrroooooooo” vs. “woof “or “bark”. It’s cute, and most people at the dog park laugh when mine start baying as they chase and play with other dogs.

If you are interested in adopting a beagle, or just fostering one like me, you should contact Pam at Rescue For Northbay Beagles at (707) 360-7539
