Hi! My name is Red! I’m a super sweet senior male beagle who is looking for my forever family. I’ve lived all my life in a tiny pen – until September, when I arrived at Nittany Beagle Rescue. Food, people, and being snuggled are my favorite things in life! I’m very friendly towards all ages of people and I am learning how to be a good house dog in my new life thanks to my foster family. I’m good with other dogs (living with 2) and at times can be food and treat possessive due to my past, but my foster family is working with me. I am not a fan of cats as I was trained to hunt, and I have a great nose that still works, so I can never be off-leash or outside of a securely fenced yard.

I only weigh about 25 lbs. but I can pull on the leash if I catch a scent. When I get excited, I will do the beagle bay! Don’t be fooled by my senior age, I have a lot of spunk and I can be very active if you want me to be! I sometimes get so excited to give my humans love that I can be underfoot. I will be best in a home with older children who know how to properly treat a dog and people who can take me on walks daily – I love my walks! I am learning basic commands and am very food motivated! Please give me a chance & make me part of your family! I’m up-to-date on vaccines, neutered, crate and house trained & on heartworm/flea preventative.

Nittany Beagle Rescue is operated by a small group of dedicated volunteers who are always looking for additional help and support. Anyone wishing to volunteer (many different volunteer options are available), receive an adoption application, donate funds, or surrender a dog can contact us by email info@nittanybeaglerescue.org or visit our website at: www.nittanybeaglerescue.org.
