Fairbanks 

 

A lot can be said about Fairbanks.

 

He is a small, handsome Black & Tan hound-mix, 1 and a half years old, and approximately 30 pounds. Up to date on all vaccines, and heartworm negative. He has big, brown eyes that can melt your heart. But he can most accurately be described as a work-in-progress.

 

Little is known of his history; found as a stray, he has definitely suffered abuse in his past. This means he is not very trusting of new people. But, once he does warm up to you, he is very affectionate. He needs a special family, who will be patient with him, and allow him to gain the confidence he needs to be a wonderful addition to the household.

 

Pros: very smart, and learns routines. He has learned to go to his crate when his foster dad is getting ready for work in the morning. He is able to make it through the workday, without having accidents. Crating when he is home unattended is suggested, as he can be destructive when he gets bored. He is very motivated by both food and treats.

 

Cons: very timid, and not yet housebroken, but he does know to use puppy pads inside the house. He may resist learning routines at first, as he gets used to being in a new environment.

 

He has been labelled “aggressive” before, but he is not aggressive, he is “reactive.” He would bite out of fear, when handled. He has come a very long way in that regard over the last several months, and has even been evaluated by a professional trainer. He is now able to be gently handled, and leashed, and even walked.

 

Time and patience are musts.

 

Fairbanks is also a big fan of squeaky toys and bully sticks; they keep him and his chewing fixation occupied. He can be destructive, if not supervised, or contained. He loves other dogs, so a doggie friend already in the household who can show him the ropes would suit him just fine. He has been around cats, but a cat-free home would possibly be best. He has not been around children much.

 

If you think that Fairbanks is the right dog for you, give him a chance to fill your world with love.

Fairbanks is fostered in Springfield, Missouri. His adoption fee is $225

Senior Beagle looking for love!  Don't let the word senior scare you off, I have plenty of years left to live!  All being a senior means is that I'd make a great companion.  You don't have to worry about house training, chewing on your shoes and furniture,  or any distructive behaviors as I have out grown those things.  What I do love is to snuggle against you, sleep in bed under the covers with you, take walks with you, just being with you in general will make me happy!  Oh, and some food... I really love food, but what beagle doesn't?  I like other dogs but can be a little aggressive if they try to steal my food, I mean really, they have their own food!  I am curious about cats.  I have not tried to chase or bark at them, I just want to smell them.  I would probably even cuddle with them if they wanted to.  I am pretty easy going although I do not like to be in a kennel or feel caged up, but of course I shouldn't need to be either because I am not going to get into anything.  I am not noisy like some other beagles I know.  I will occasionally bark but that is just to warm you of something coming.  If I may be honest, I am really one of the best dogs out there!  I am healthy, soft as the come (I bet you have never felt ears as silky as mine), up to date on all my shots, and microchipped.  I am being fostered in the Kansas City area with an adoption fee of $200.  If you want the perfect dog to be by your side, please consider adopting me! show less

  Do you like super handsome men who are vertically challenged??  Do you like cute fluffy men who are super sweet??  Do you only want one of these super sweet guys in your life??  I have someone in mind for you...  ME!!  I am DaVito, a young basset/corgi mix who sauntered in from North Carolina.  My history is a bit sorted, but what i do know is I was not in a safe place.  The nice people at BBRH swooped in to save me.  Upon a vet visit it was found out that I have torn cartilage in one ear and a BB lodged in the other, but meh, that doesn't bother me. I do not appear to hold any grudges because I absolutely adores people of all ages.  I am however dog selective, so I do prefer to live my bestest life in a home with NO other doggies.  Walking nicely on a leash needs just a bit of work, I can pull a bit because I'm just so excited to be out walking with you and even though I'm not a big guy, I am fairly strong.  But i do love my walks!!  I don't do well with strange dogs in public, so it is best that you deliver my treats from the pet store while I wait patiently at home for your return.  I am smart, I mastered a dog door in a matter of hours and I love being able to go outside and run around, so a fenced in yard is a must.  I know sit, down, roll over and shake, I kennel on command and am ready to learn more stuff!  I have been trained without treats as I am so food motivated it became a distraction!  I use a slow feeder bowl too because I tend to scarf my food down. My favorite things include car rides, plush toys with squeakers, shredding tennis balls and spending time with humans.  I also love to snuggle on the couch all day if you would allow me to.  What movie are we going to watch first! DaVito is fully vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm negative, housebroken and ready for his new home!!    Davito is fostered in Omaha NE.  His adoption fee is $225.00 show less

The eyes are the window to the soul we have  been told.  This boys soul is one of the sweetest.  Dexter is a 10 year old Beagle who found himself coming into rescue from a previous owner who did not have time for him and his issue anymore. This loving boy is house broken and will cue to be let outside. He does not need crated and prefers not to be.  He loves children and does great with other dogs too! (Cats unknown). Dexter LOVES food, so much that he is willing to jump on a chair to help himself to your left overs!   His dog food and other human food does need to be safely kept out of reach or locked so that he does not find himself in a feast and end up at the vet again!! Poor Dexter does suffer from chronic severe allergies, so he needs a patient owner that is willing to provide consistent medication and occasional baths.  He has been receiving this attention and is much more comfortable than when we first got him. He would do best in a home where someone is present most of the time, as he suffers from severe separation anxiety. He is what we consider 'speechless' for a hound dog until you leave the house. He does not show destructive behavior but will howl, cry, bark, and excessively pace when you leave him.   While you are home you can find him curled up in a blanket, taking a snooze!  He is an extremely sweet and gentle boy who wants a loving home with a person to cuddle up next to for his retirement. Are you that person?     **The vet said he will probably be allergy ridden and on meds for life. Some may need to be switched in the future .  Dexter averages about $80 of meds every 15 days.... plus he is on prescription shampoo and foam but that lasts awhile. As part of Dexters adoption his foster mom, who is a groomer, will offer Dexter’s new owners an extremely heavily discounted grooming fee if they want to bring him for baths. (It would include bath, nails, and ear cleaning). ****   Dexter is current on vaccinations, HW negative, neutered, and micro chipped.  His adoption fee is $125.00.  Dexter is fostered in Omaha, NE. show less

  Have you ever met a beagle who has the silkiest and softest fur?  Well you have now!  My name is Emily and here are a few facts about me! I am about 5 years old and weigh around 30lbs.  I have the SOFTEST beagle ears ever, and a cute pink nose. My legs are a bit short so that I look tubby in pictures but when you look down at me, I have a decent waist.  I’m just “stocky.” I will sleep on your bed with you or I will sleep on a dog bed in the bedroom, as you wish.  During the day, I will hang out on your lap, or on a dog bed, or on a chair or the sofa near you.  I don’t care where, just somewhere you will send kisses to!   I love being outside and following scents.  If you take me on walks or to a dog park, I would entertain you incredibly with my enthusiasm.  However, I am an “escapist artist” when left unwatched.  I do not dig holes in the yard fun, but I will dig under a fence to follow a scent, so please ask for details. I would do well in an apartment with regular walks or in a home with a small back yard with monitored potty breaks.   I am OK with children and dogs.  I am not food aggressive. I am good at potty training.     I am Current on vaccinations, spayed, HW negative, and micro chipped. I am fostered in Omaha, NE. My adoption fee is $225.00 show less
