Hi! I’m Ben! I’m a sweet little 10-12 year old male beagle. I’m a small guy – only about 20 lbs. I’m playful & I act quite young! I love to run around a fenced in yard! I love to go on leashed walks also! I’m used to walking about 3 miles a day! If I pick up a scent, then I slow way down! I have a great bay! I love to bay! I like to sleep with my person, although I don’t really snuggle. I also love to lounge on the couch. I LOVE to sleep on dirty shirts! I enjoy car rides too! I’m already housetrained, neutered & up-to-date on vaccines. I will destroy a crate though. I’ve lived with other dogs & I do fine with them. However, I won’t back down if another dog is being bossy with me. Won’t you think about making me part of your family! I’m such a wonderful little guy!

Nittany Beagle Rescue is a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving the lives of beagles and beagle mixes in Pennsylvania. We accept beagles from shelters and from owners who can no longer keep them, and we work to find them loving, permanent homes.
