  • Beagles make warm, loyal pets for life

  • My friend Derek adopted a beagle a couple of years ago. Derek and his wife have two young girls, one of them severely autistic. When I ask Derek about his beagle, Domino, a huge smile comes on his face. Derek says that Domino is the best dog ever! His daughters love Domino and he has become an important member of the family.

    Beagles are great dogs and make great family pets! Their good dispositions make them children friendly. Their instinct to sniff and follow trails can get them into trouble. They should be supervised when out of doors and have a good fence to keep them safe.
    Animals Best Friends have several wonderful beagles that are looking for forever homes.
    Noel is a sweet, baby girl who will be one year old this month. She is very playful and loves her toys. Noel plays well with other dogs, is crate trained, and learning good house manners.
    Unfortunately, ABF does not want to place Noel in a home with very small children.
    Nova is a precious, 10-year-old girl who is currently living in a foster home. She would make a great companion for someone who likes leisure walks. Nova gets along well with other dogs and would love to be placed in a home where she can be content and enjoy life.
    Paige is a 3-year-old beagle/hound mix. She is a very sweet girl who is shy at first but loves humans of all ages. Paige’s foster parents have taught her to ring a bell when she needs to go outside. She is a great dog who plays well with other dogs and even shares her toys. Paige hasn’t been with cats, and ABF prefers her to be placed in a home with a tall fence around the backyard.
    If you are looking for a great dog and think that one of these kids might be a good fit for your family please go to our website at www.animalsbestfriends.org and complete an application.
