Hi! My name is Danielle and I am the proud slave to my two wonderful beagles, Bo and Katie. Both of them are rescues and are two of the loves of my life (along with their 4 rescued non-beagle doggy brothers and sisters). Bo is a 8 year old neutered male and Katie is a 3 year old spayed female. They are both spoiled rotten, sleep in the bed, and pretty much try to go with me anywhere I go. I work at a vet clinic, so they are with me quite a lot during the week and love going to work with me.

Glad I found this forum and other beagle lovers like myself!

Here's a picture of Katie:



And here's a picture of Bo:

Welcome to you, Katie & Bo. BW is a great group & you will love it here. Your 2 furkids are so great looking - you did a really great thing, rescuing them.

Just one question - how long did all those stuffed toys stay stuffed? My little Shasta LOVES to de-stuff her toys, my pillows, the dog bed, the arm of the sofa ..........and she's quik about it too.


Here is my boy, Shiloh-

He loves dressing up for the camera.

Welcome to you and Bo and Katie from Henry and Yodel and me (Denise).


Your babies are beautiful! 2 rescues...you're my kind of people. Both of mine are rescues, too.


Like Bob said, please introduce us to your 4 honorary beagles also. My resident honorary beagle is Kelsey who just had her second surgery for a fibrosarcoma on her head. She looks pretty bad but she doesn't know it.

Yodel would like a shot at those stuffed toys with Katie. He's a master de-stuffer. My Henry was a hurricane dog with alot of baggage and he is my special little boy. That's his picture in my Avatar.

Glad you found BW!

Welcome! I also have a Henry who is a rescue. My Henry is not full beagle, however, he's a mystery hound. He looks like a foxhound but is colored like a German shepherd. The shelter said shepherd/beagle mix, but mostly he acts like a beagle, lol.

Hi guys, thanks for the awesome welcome! Yep, my gang probably has about 100 stuffed animals or more. They LOVE toys, and don't take long to go through them! They also have tons of harder chew toys, so sometimes we have to take the stuffies away so they don't make a mess, LOL.

I'll give you guys a bit more history on Bo and Katie, then I'll introduce y'all to their brothers and sisters. I adopted Katie last year from a local animal rescue. She was turned into a very high kill shelter by a man that either found her tied to a tree, or hanging from a tree. No one ever got the story straight. She was pregnant, and heartowmr positive. She delivered her puppies at the rescue and they were soon adopted out.

I went to Petsmart that day to buy a dog toy and she was there for the rescue's adoption day. I was looking at the cute fluffy dogs they had for adoption and came across this very skinny, dirty little beagle in a cage at the end of the row. I fell in love, payed the adoption fee, and that was it!

Bo was adopted in January of this year. I was driving home from work and was doing 60 down a highway when I entered a curve and there was Bo in the middle of the highway, not planning on moving out the way! I turned around, grabbed him, and took him home. No one ever came foward to claim him and he was anemic, malnourished, unneutered, and filled with ticks and worms. We neutered him, fixed him up, and now he's just plain spoiled rotten. Everything he wants, he gets!
He's extremely handshy, and scared of loud noises, so we really think he was abused/mistreated. But never again!

Okay, now here's pics and some info on Bo and Katie's brothers and sisters.


Audubon is a 7 year english pointer/dalmation mix was adopted from a local animal rescue when she was 9 weeks old. She was one of a litter of puppies that had been found abandoned on a road.



Jake is a 10 year old Shih Tzu who, at 9 years old, was given up by his previous owner because he was no longer wanted. Jake took a long time to become adjusted to his new home here, he just couldn't seem to understand why after all those years, he had to live somewhere new, with a new family. But all the other rescue doggies here showed him the ropes, and with tons of love, compassion, and lots of treats, Jake is now one of the happiest dogs you could ever meet!



Blue is a 10 year old pit bull. When he was 6 weeks old, someone brought him into the clinic where I work with a crushed skull and other injuries. The person abandoned him and never came back for him, so the clinic adopted him as a resident dog. After I started working there, I felt so bad for Blue. He cannot open his mouth but about a 1/2 inch (he licks his food up and swallows whole) and as a result, his teeth were really bad, he drooled, and he was awfully smelly so no one at the clinic messed with him. He pretty much lived in a kennel for 10 years. I asked if I could adopt him and they said yes. I was thrilled! I had a dental done on him, and now his mouth smells fine. He is my special buddy and him and I do everything together! He's definitely a whole new dog since getting a home, he's so happy and rambunctious, no one believes he's really 10!



And last but not least, is Callie my 3 year old long haired dachshund. She's really petite, at only 7 pounds. Callie is my 'newbie', I just got her 2 weeks ago. She was a breeder female for a horrible breeder that was moving out of state and was taking Callie to the pound because Callie's last three litters were stillborns and she claims Callie was 'no use' to her. I took Callie instead and was $300 in debt the next day in vet bills! Callie was pregnant with stillborn pups, so we spayed her immediately. Her teeth were in extremely horrid condition and she ended up losing 10 more during the dental procedure. All that's the past now and Callie is quickly becoming very spoiled!



And that's my crew! Of dogs, at least. I have nothing short of a zoo at my house, LOL.

Welcome Bo and Katie and Audubon, Jake, Blue and Callie! They are all gorgeous! You are a saint for taking them all in. Jersey is also a rescue. Her mommy, Dixie, was found as a very pregnant stray. A few days later Dixie had 10 pups, one of them being my little Jersey girl. Dixie and her litter were turned over to the Tampa Bay Beagle Rescue. I adopted Jersey from them when she was around 8-9 weeks old. Again, welcome to our world here. I know I can't wait to hear all about your Beags, and honorary Beags as well.

Thank you for rescuing. My Li'l Girl is a rescue, too, as are 2 of her 3 non-beagle siblings. There's also Miss Priss, the calico cat, who's also a rescue.

Thanks about Henry's looks! He is a handsome guy. He's the sweetest thing in the world, loves people and other animals. I can't imagine anyone giving him away. As wonderful as he is, it must have broken his previous owner's heart to do so. Currently Henry is trying to win the love of a community stray that hangs out at all the fast food restraunts. She's feral and looks like she's had lots of babies. Henry always shares his nuggets with her, lol. I'm the only one she lets touch her, but she won't let me put a leash on her. Hopefully I'll catch her soon...
