New Jersey Beagles at Breezy Point

 

 

My beautiful old beagle
As horrible as it is, we hear so many stories from families of how they lost their beagle at an early age. Perhaps sickness, or unexpected accidents or tragedies.  But, I wanted to dedicate a page on my website to those wonderful oldtimers.  The senior beagles who are still warming the hearts of their owners and putting smiles on the grandchildrens faces. 

If you have a senior beagle and would like to share him with our visitors, please  click on the link and fill out our senior profile.  New Jersey Beagle's would like to celebrate and honor the longevity of YOUR beagle and the happiness and love he's brought your family over the years!  

Please send us his/her photo to: NJBeagles@optonline.net

Thanks, Terry

name: Remington (Remy)
age: 10 DOB

Gender: Male
Remy is an angel! My stepbrother bought Remy in January, 1995 to be a hunting dog. He hunted until he was 5 when my stepbrother went into the navy. At that time, he became our house dog. He is definitely a "momma's boy" and rarely leaves my mom's side. I fell so in love with Remy that I now have a beagle and plan on getting a few more in the future. After Remy, there will never be another breed for me. He loves cuddles, love, kisses, and as his weight will show, cookies. :-) All who know him, love him very much!
 
 

On a sad note:  Remy, at age 12 passed away on 5/2/07

name: Rose
age: 10
Gender: Female

Here is a photo of my senior beagle Rose (on the left)and my younger beagle Murphy (on the right).   Although I have only had my Rose for a couple months, she has really become a big part of our family.  She sleeps beside my bed and when I open my eyes in the morning she greets me with a wag of a tail and comes up in bed for a morning snuggle.  From the little I understand from her past, it was not an easy one.  So, I hope I can make the rest of her years as happy and full of love as she deserves.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rich's beautiful 10 year old beagle Lucy loves wearing hats.

Unfortunately, adorable and stylish Lucy has passed away at 15 1/2 years old. 
Our condolences to her family.

I found  your website and had to share my senior beagle, Bastian with everyone.  He is my heart and soul, a best friend, great listener and loves to express himself...quite the barker!  Bastian has been with me for 14 years and brought so much love and joy into my life!  Although we are in Georgia, its good to know those Jersey beagles are loved just as much.  Thanks for allowing me to share a bit of Bastian with everyone!

 

 

 

 

 

Maggie the beagle
20 years old


Here is a photo of our 20 year old beagle, Maggie.  As you can see she is a very sweet soul! 


Also picturedis Scout our 11 1/2 year old Swiss Mt Dog.  (He looks better when he's awake)  2 weeks ago he had minor surgery and the vets were astonished at how healthy he is for his age.


The other dog in this photo is Tessa.  She is a 10 year old English Shepherd.  We refer to her as the "World's Greatest Guard Dog."  As you can see she's also quite a beauty.


Back to Maggie the beagle.  Her medical history is as follows.  At age 12 she suddenly started crying and we rushed off to the vet.  She was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease and referred to U of P for spinal surgery.  I was quite upset and kept saying an old dog like this could never undergo surgery.  The vet isisted that this was something that sometimes happens to little old dogs and we must.  The next day we took her to a chiropractor we know and truste and he fixed her in 3 seconds flat.  No more crying.

She had a lways had a problem with her anal glands.  Finally at age 14 they had to come out.  I was devastated thining I would lose her in the surgery.  She just wanted to get rid of them!  The surgery was a success but that was when she was diagnosed with terminal cancer and given two months to live.  The vet said nothing could be done and to just make her as comfortable as possible.

I was feeding her one of the best dog foods on the market - special ordering it in.  I made the switch to raw organtic meat.  1 1/2 years later I took Maggie to the vet for a bladder infection.  The vet kept insisting it was the cancer.  I kept insisting it was a bladder infection. (I had them myself)  I was right!  The vet asked me one question.  "What are you feeding this dog??"

Several months ago Maggie started crying again.  She was having a lot of difficulty making it up a single step.  I found a great chiropractor and she stopped crying.  She has again resumed her every other day walks.

I think there's several factors involved in her health and longevity.... Love, companionship, and spiriturality.  But that's just my opinion. 

I hope you have a wonderful Holiday!  Judy Szela

 

 

 

 

 



name: Oreo
age: 11
Gender: Male


Oreo loves people, food, as you can see from his belly, afternoon naps, and the occasional taste of mom's meatloaf..  He is the "king" of our house.   In his younger days he would run around the yard sniffing for rabbits and digging up beatles.  He gets really excited at christmas and after he gets a bath.  We love Oreo very much and could not imagine a better dog.


 

 

 

 

 

 

Your beagles name: Queenie and Sweetie
Your beagles age: 10 and 12 respectively
Gender: Female



Both of my babies are shelter beagles.  Queenie is a tempermental beagle that loves to climb into you lab, but will snarrel when you try and pet her.  Sweetie on the other hand does not like to cuddle but would betray everyone and everything for a belly rub.  Sweetie is the escape artist and master criminal of the two.  There is almost no place that is safe from her.  She has moved objects to make steps to reach a tray that was out of her reach.

 

So sorry..... At age 13, Sweetie passed away

 


 

 

 

Your beagles name: Shiloh Ears
Your beagles age: 8 (bday July 15, 1997)
Gender: Female
Shiloh is my best friend. She's the sweetest most loving beagle.  I showed her in 4-H dog obedience and two years she got Reserve Grand Champion. She's very smart and knows many tricks.  Just recently, I found out that Shiloh has dog cancer.  Although, she's doing okay right now, she does have bad days.  I love her very much and can't image not having her in my life.  She's my Best Friend!!

Your beagles name: Ozzie
Your beagles age: 14+
Gender: Male
Please tell us what you feed your beagle: Paul's petfood or Nutro senior
Ozzie is a very loving and sweet boy and we can't imagine why his other people dropped him off at animal control at age 14! Fortunately he was rescued and then adopted by us.  He has two beagle sisters (lucy and sally) also rescues who are 3 & 4. He's in great physical shape (although his eyes are getting cloudy)and loves to play beagle games with the girls.
 
 


The first photo is the one I saw on petfinders, complete with the sad poem.  The second is a happy boy at his foster mom's (we use a harness when our beagles are on a leash).  He's such a sweet boy, likes to cuddle up in his blanket when he goes to bed at night.  I need to get a picture of that.
 
Thanks for the great site.

At 15+ years old, sweet Ozzie peacefully passed away with his loved ones

Your beagles name: Parker
Your beagles age: 17
Gender: Male
Please tell us what you feed your beagle: Bonzo meats and nibbles
 We brought Parker from Calgary, Canada to Dordrecht in Holland in 1999. He loves the temperate climate, no more -40+ in the winter months. He is now 17 years old, so kind and loving, loves his walks, quite, in good health, a wonderful friend.  Thank you Parker

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Your beagles name: Homer
Your beagles age: 10
Gender: Male
Tell us what you feed your beagle: Beneful Healthy Weight Management
 
We adopted Homer when he was 7 years old from a local shelter. He'd been adopted and returned from that paricular shelter five times. His early days are a mystery, but its obvious that he had been abused and let outside for long periods of time. He was never housebroken, and that's the main reason he was returned to the shelter so many times. It took a little time, and still a few accidents happen, but he is the sweetest dog. He is very gentle and is still playful. He loves when we go on our family walks and sniffing around our backyard. Everytime I look at his sweet face I can't imagine how anyone could return him to a shelter just because he wasn't housebroken. He's been a wonderful addition to our family and I look forward to (hopefully) many more years with him.
 
 
 
 
 
 

Your beagles name: Lucy
Your beagles age: 15
Gender: Female
Please tell us what you feed your beagle:  Science Diet Senior
 

Lucy has been my best friend for a long time now. With the exception of a little arthritis she is as healthy as an ox. I recently started giving her glucosamine/condritin and asprin, which helps the arthritis imensely. She's never lost that beagle high energy zest for life and still goes crazy when she sees a rabbit. I'm glad to see so many beagles on her that are still healthy in their latter years.

Comet fit right into our family.  He is a very loving happy ol guy.  Our other three beagles love him.   We got him from the humane society first fostering him, but he stole our hearts.  We decided no other home was good enough for him.  He will want for nothing.  We are looking forward to many more years with comet.

Tell us what you feed your beagle: Dad's brand Dog Foods
Duke is a very special beagle. We got Duke as a puppy in 1999, saving him from a cruel owner who threatened to shoot him if he didn't get rid of him. At 7 years young, Duke is still very playful and energetic. However, age is starting to catch up with the Dukester and he's gotten a little bit slower in his step in recent years. Duke enjoys: Back rubs, playtime, going outside, begging for people food, and last but not least, attention.

 

 

 

 

Your beagles name: Freckles
Your beagles age: 70 years old - 10 human years old
Gender: Female
Please tell us what you feed your beagle: Kibbles & Bits

My baby is all around wonderful...She loves to hug. She will crawl up on your lap and take her legs and put them on your shoulders and lay her head down. Nothing beat a good hug from her! She is a diabetic & has many seizures, yet she acts like a puppy and wants to play all the time. She recently got a knee injury & has been limping. The Vet said to keep her calm & not running around. Like I said she acts like a puppy and loves to play so this has been hard for us. She climbs the fence like any child would; she can climb out, but cant figure out how to climb in. Go figure.Freckles is starting to turn gray, but I love her all the same... with all my heart!

 

 

 

Your beagles name: Bugsy
Your beagles age: 14
Gender: Male
Please tell us what you feed your beagle: purina one for years now alpo

Bugsy is our first beagle.  We also have a 7 yr. old female named Ruby.  Bugsy is the epitomy of a Beagle.  He's strong, courageous, smart, and a great hunter.  Bugsy has survived epilepsy, heat stroke, getting lost 2 different times most recently this year for 2.5 days.  {now retired from rabbitting}.  We have been thru thick and thin together and there will never be another like him.  In his prime he was 36 lbs. of solid rabbit chasing muscle, ballooned up to 60 and now back down in the 30's. He continues to amaze us everyday and we have been truly blessed by God to have this fine dog in our lives.  I'm thankful that both my boys have gotten a chance to hunt w/ the most relentless rabbit chaser ever.

 

Sadly, Bugsy lost his battle with time and passed away on 9/14/07

 

 

 

Your beagles name:  Natalie
Your beagles age:  12 Years Old
Gender: Female

What do your feed your beagle:  IVD Duck and Potato or Venison and Potato


 
 
I found her at a pet store when she was 5 months old.  We bonded right away and she's been right by my side ever since. It is so amazing how over the years she's learned to speak to me, my husband, and son with her eyes, paws, and bark.

When her ceramic bowls are empty, she will move them around the tile and make alot of noise until someone fills them up.  If no one comes, she'll bark until they do.  She has one bark for strangers at the door and another for when she needs something.  The best is when she just can't wait for food, water, or to go out.  She'll come over and paw one of us (she's a lefty like me) over and over until we guess the right thing...  pee pee, food...and then she'll look at us intensely and bark when we guess right as if to say, "Yes, that's it!"  Many times she'll come up to me wimpering, hook her paw around my wrist, and pull it toward her.  That's when I know she really wants a backrub.  She's brought so much comfort, joy, and laughter to our lives.  We love our Natalie girl!

Your beagles name: Katie
Your beagles age: 12
Gender: Female 
What do you feed your beagle: Bentiful Weight Mngt
 

 
 
 
 



We have been blessed having Katie in our family since a puppy. She has been a joy for all 12 years !! Having 2 yrs ago losing our 1st beagle Dexter at 14, she has had to become the older sibling to another, Elton , who just turned 2. Her major health issue has been her knee joints - Synflex seems to have helped. When it gets bad she gets a shot. She also was born with no tear ducts- hence the tear stains.
Katie is full of love and tenderness. She has a pure and kind soul - we love her dearly.

Thank you for having this page to share our baby girl.
aka name "baby cakes katie"

p.s. as she has gotten older she has become very camera shy. I think it's the flash.

Your beagles name: Jeppe
Your beagles age: 18 years (Born 1989 november 15)
Gender: Male

What do you feed your beagle: regular dogfood, he loves pancakes and meatballs!

Jeppe is not a pure beagle, somewhere in the family line he has dachshund in his blood. He has been a wonderfull family member through his years. He has done many funny things in his life. I remember once he hunted heifers on a field, suddenly all 10 heifers turned around and chased him off the field. He was realy ashamed and afraid that time. :-) He has 3 cat friends who loves him like a "big brother". They love to play and cuddle with him. Now a days since he is a senior he lives a quiet and peacefull life. He sleeps more now than before but when he is a awake he plays and eats almost like a puppy. Love and hugs from Leena and Jeppe, Sweden!                

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your beagles name: Taffy
Your beagles age: 14 years, 9 months
Gender: Female

 Purina chicken/lamb & rice (dry)
  



Taffy came to live with me almost 4 years ago, after my Mom, who had her for her 1st 11 years, could no longer care for her. My only regret now is that I didn't take her sooner. She still pulls me when "walking", with her non-stop sniffer scanning the ground in search of that elusive garbage bag she can't wait to rip open for goodies. Everybody loves her, & she loves being petted & continuously getting her belly rubbed. (She'll hit you with her paw if you have the audacity to stop!) Her bladder is unfortunately starting to leak more & more, & I burst into tears when I think no matter how much time has passed, it's still never long enough. I can't conceive her not being in our lives, & I dread the future without her. Early this year, I lost my job & have spent nearly every minute with her-which is the only good that came out of it. That I wouldn't change for anything, but spending all that time with her will make her loss all the more unbearable. She's snoring as I write this, a sound which has comforted me these past few years. I wish I could turn back the clock & she'd be a puppy again. We love you so, so very much, Taffy-please don't leave us so soon!!!

 

Taffy's family sadly informed us today that she peacefully passed away on 8/18/08

My wonderful Beagle just turned 15, he is joy to our heart and is just a bundle of love to be around.  Unfortunatley he has been battling weight problems his whole life and as his health has started to go his spirit is large as ever.  He has developed a large growth in his bladder and the outcome doesnt look too good.  I love my buddy to death it just kills me to see him go but i am glad i got to spend 15 great years with him.
 

      








 

 

Your beagles name: Beasley
Your beagles age: 15
Gender: Male
What do you feed your beagle: Nutro Natural Choice 

 



Beasley was adopted when he was 2. He has always been the canine Houdini. When I first got him, he somehow scratched or ate away the solder to remove a metal bar from the top of his locked crate, and he climbed out of the small space the missing bar left! He's old now, with an enlarged heart and collapsed trachea which causes a relentless cough, but he's still a tough little guy and the acknowledged alpha dog even though his brother is bigger, younger and stronger.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

             

Your beagles name: Barney
Your beagles age: 18 on April 11th, 2008
Gender: Male
What do you feed your beagle: IVD Venison and potato

Barney is the best Beagle ever.  After we got him at the age of 11 weeks, four other Beagles entered our lives.  Two of those beloved Beagles have since passed on.  Barney is a miracle; we love him with all of our hearts.  

Sadly, on June 10th, Barney passed away at 18 years and 2 months old.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Name: Harry
Age: 10 years old
Gender: Male

What do you feed your beagle: Trying several things right now...


Harry has been with me for about 4 months, he came from the pound. He's my first beagle, I have been wanting one forever and have been waiting for the "perfect" one. I'm glad I waited, because I got lucky & found him on the first try!  He's a great dog, housetrained, ignores the cats, loves food, loves the dog park, and doesn't bay (I'm a little sad about this!).  He has a heart murmur and high blood pressure, but he's on medication & doing great. The vet estimates he's about 10 years old.  We live in Texas.


Sad to report that Harry has passed away at age 13, very peacefully right here at home.
 

 

 

 

 

Your beagles name: Elmo
Your beagles age: 12 years old - d.o.b. 04/12/96
Gender: Male
What you feed your beagle: Purina ONE (healthy weight formula of course!) and Nature's Variety Raw.  He loves any form of poultry too!



 

My sweet baby boy is very loving and social and has a very active life - when he's not busy taking a nap!  He loves his job as a pet assisted therapy dog - he works 2 Sundays a month making people feel better by just being himself!  He has never turned down a chance to go for a long "sniffy" walk around the neighborhood and really loves an afternoon at the dog park which includes a ride in the car!   He's also very good at helping me with my job - pet sitting - and loves to go with me to visit the clients he knows - it's always very exciting to get to sniff someone else's yard!   He's a wonderful dog who warms my heart and always makes me smile!

So sorry to hear that Elmo, at 14 ½ years old, passed away on December 19, 2010

Ben is a very sweet boy who we adopted a year ago.

last Halloween.  We hope to have many more wonderful

years with Ben.


Sweet Ben went to the bridge on 5/23/12
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your beagles name: Tucker
Your beagles age: 13
Gender: Male
Please tell us what you feed your beagle: Blue Buffalo Chicken & Rice with a dollop of Old Mother Hubbards Grammys Pot Pie - YUMMY!

I rescued Tucker at 6 mos old and I was not his first owner - or second! Tucker was quite a handsome baby but also a handful.  Through the years he has earned the title "The Fun Police" because he doesn't like the young-uns having fun unless he says they can (which means he tends to corral them into place - oh wait, maybe I mean bully! LOL).

Tucker has a very special spot in my heart and although he has sorely tested me thru the years I seriously doubt there will ever be another dog that I love as much as I do him.  Probably because he was so needy from the start he has become my "baby" and clearly he is a mommas boy.


Tucker can be found in the sunny spot of my bay window during the day and on snowy winter mornings, he spends time chasing his little sister, Penny (as in this photo).

Your beagles name: Maggie
Your beagles age: 9+
Gender: Female

Please tell us what you feed your beagle: Iams weight control

My little girl is Maggie, she may be getting up in years now but no-one told her! We adopted our girl in 1998 when she was a year old.What a blessing that day was! My son says that I'm the only person he knows whos best friend is a dog. I talk to her all the time, and I swear she tries to talk back! She loves "belly rubs" and ice cream...yes i know its no good, so she only licks the bowl. She is an amazing girl, who I love more than I can say. I just can't imagine my life without her!
With sorrow, Maggie passed away on March 20, 2011

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Your beagles name: Daisy
Your beagles age: unknown, likely 13 or 14

Gender: Female

Please tell us what you feed your beagle: W/D wet from the vet, grilled chicken strips

Daisy was abandoned in upstate NY three years ago. She was rescued and brought to Hoboken, NJ. As a result she suffers from separation anxiety and occasional depression. In her early years she learned to track scents and now uses that skill to find food in the trash. Plus she is a champion begger. Also, she has a strong dislike for grey squirrels and enacts revenge on them as often as she can. Daisy is a sweet soul and a great dog.

Sadly, Daisy passed away 5/4/2010

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

Your beagles name: Daisy May
Your beagles age: 15

Gender: Female 

 

 

Please tell us what you feed your beagle: Lots of people food....everything! The better question would be, what does Daisy feed herself?
Daisy is the spunkiest old lady beagle ever!  She loves to sleep on her special spot on the family room carpet.  She also loves to smell around in the backyard and bark at all kinds of animals.  But most of all Daisy loves her food!  Daisy is a little devil and will do just about anything to get food, especially steak.  Daisy is a real character-- once she crashed a neighbor's backyard party and ate all their food!    Another time she ate a whole chicken, bones and all.  Despite the fact that she is a little menace, she is the cutest, sweetest, most lovable dog, with the softest longest ears! We just can't get enough of this sweet little Daisy, my little baby!  We call her crazy Daisy! 

 

  

  


  


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your beagles name: Freckles
Your beagles age: 11 on February 1, 2009
Gender: Male

Please tell us what you feed your beagle: Nature's Recipe Lamb and Rice

Although basically an independent soul early on, Freckles has grown into my velcro beagle in recent years. He needs to be in whatever room I am in. He is the most gentle soul you'd ever want to meet. Although he doesn't request belly rubs or petting very often, he loves to lean on you and just feel a gentle hand on his back. A year ago he was diagnosed with a nerve sheath sarcoma on his right hind leg. Although they were able to remove the entire tumor fairly easily, they know some cancer cells were left behind. So far, there have been no signs of recurrence and we are spending our days just enjoying our beagle boy and giving him the great life he deserves.

 Handsome Freckles passed away in May, 2012
You will be missed by all of us at NJ Beagles.  RIP

 

 

 

 

 Allie Age 13 Gender Female
Allie is our  baby and she loves to ride in the car truck or boat.  She eats every thing.  We can't control her diet because she sneaks over to all our neighbors for scraps and snacks.  We couldn't imagine not having her.

 

With heavy hearts we regret to inform you that Allie our 13 year old Beagle passed away on June 3 09.  We have lost a part of our lives that can never be replaced.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Forrest
Age 12-13

Male

My mom and I adopted Forrest 3 years ago from Pet Rescue of Mercer. He was so skinny and sad and had a huge tumor on his belly. We gave him a warm, loving him and he has brought complete joy to my life. His unconditional love helps me through my bad times and I look at him everyday and smile. I thought he saved my life but really he has saved mine. I will never buy another breed of dog again! Just recently we had to rush Forrest to an animal hospital where he was diagnosed with vestibular disease. The ordeal was very scary and I thought he had a stroke and we were going to lose him. Fortunately, 3 weeks later he is doing MUCH better. Although the hospital gave him chicken and he is on strike from eating dogfood at the moment. I hope he stays around for many more years to come. I cannot imagine my life without him. And in the future, should we lose him, I know that he would want us to continue adopting older beagles to show them that they can be loved until the very end.

Your beagles age: 13?
Gender: Male
Please tell us what you feed your beagle: Varieties of Senior Wet and Dry foods


Chauncey was a rescue dog found wandering in the streets of New Bedford and was brought to the Animal Rescue League on Cape Cod.  His age is somewhat indeterminate as he came with no ID.  He is lovable and devoted.  He is a great sailor and loves to go paddle boating everyday in the summer.  We live on a lake and he loves the water as long and there is a boat between it and him and never touches his paws.  He barks at the swans and they hiss back at him.  He also shares his time with his three cats also great buddies.  Now he is being treated for an enlarged heart and his days are probably numbered, but everyone will be treasured and we are certainly looking forward to another summer.

Your beagles age: 16 years+10 months

Please tell us what you feed your beagle: Anything that she wants...right now Iams Puppy


 

We got Nala at one year of age as a rescue.  Since then, she has been a therapy dog, earned two legs of her AKC Obedience title (just decided that she had enough of that stuff!), a therapy dog...and a good and faithful friend.  She is the last of three beagle girls that we have owned , and she certainly has been the most dear.  She has slowed down a bit...is blind, deaf, and is being treated for kidney failure and congestive heart disease...we thought about a year ago we were going to lose her, but she still enjoys going into the back yard for a good frolic and still gets excited when Poppy comes home...

 

 I am very sad to inform you that we lost our Nala on Saturday, Oct. 1, 2011 at 17 years   and 2 months. Here’s hoping that Daddy’s little girl has good hunting!

When out for a stroll in the neighborhood, passers by are suddenly alerted to what almost sounds like an old steam train... the distinct "Sound of the Hound". Looking up they spot the familiar form of Brewster the Beagle "perched" in his favorite place, our big Bay Window.The "Sweetest Guy in the Neighborhood" greets a legion of fans and friends who smile and wave as they stroll by. With a disposition as sweet as sugar he's always lobbying for a treat, a pat on the head or a snuggle. He loves meatballs and even though he's been fed his dinner, he'll wait patiently in the kitchen while we make "our" dinner and he won't leave till he gets one. We've had Brewster since he was a puppy and we all feel fortunate to be the primary recipients of his love, loyalty and trust. Although he has many admirers, we love him dearly and his biggest fans will always remain his family members, Myself, my wife Mia and our son Josh.

Gender: Female

Please tell us what you feed your beagle: Wellness Healthy Weight
 
 
Lucy was born on 11/11/2001 and we got her from a breeder when she was oldenough to leave her mother. She is my 2nd beagle. I had one as a child, andshe was such a wonderful memory, I wanted to share that experience with 3boys that my husband and I adopted.

Lucy is a wonderful family member,friend, and companion. She has degenerative disc disease and a partiallycollapsed trachea, as well as a slightly enlarged heart. I am retired, so Ican give her the medications she needs to control her pain throughout the
day. We camp, and she still goes along, but we have to make sure that shedoes not get overheated, because she has difficulty when exposed to heat andhumidity. She cannot exercise and only goes outside for her potty needs. Welove her dearly, and it's sad to see her slowing down so much, but we willtake care of her until her time here is over.


Lucy has a Chihuahua companion, Rosie, whom we also lovevery much!!

Where do I start?  Angel is a rescue dog and now has been my baby for 7 yrs.  She is a true joy to all... everyone loves her and she loves them back 10-fold! All the hurt and pain from her early years has been healed with love and she is the SWEETEST girl in the world.  At home she is busy spending her days snoozing on one of her many dog beds throughout the house sitting on the front porch monitoring the goings-on of the neighborhood and keeping me company all the day.  She is the BEST listener and is always EXCITED to be near!  In her spare time she loves to volunteer as a "Love On A Leash" therapy dog visiting nursing homes and letting children read to her in the libraries!!!  No one can believe she is 11yrs old... she looks, acts and thinks like she is a pup still!  She's got spunk and is sharp as a whip!  I have an intense spiritual and emotional bond with Angel and am thankful everyday that she was purposed into my life. 
 


Here's to all the healthy and happy senior Beagle dogs and the people who love them oh so much!!!!!

BEAGLES NAME: Jackie
BEAGLES AGE: 8+
GENDER: Female
PLEASE TELL US WHAT YOU FEED YOUR BEAGLE: Dog Chow
We never were interested in a dog as we were always a cat family. Our son was in the fifth grade and they had to read the story Shiloh for a grade. After he watched the movie he came home and begged us to get him a beagle for a few days. After finally agreeing on the terms of getting a dog we agreed. So we set out to look for a beagle. The first beagle we came in contact with just wasn't what we were looking for. After a little search we arrived at a shelter about 45 minutes from where we live. We went into the dog area of the shelter and instantly there was Jackie just sitting in the corner with the saddest look on her face. Our son instantly fell in love with her. My husband and I suggested we walk around and look at the other dogs but he just wasn't interested. We walked around to look at the other dogs and came back to the cage with Jackie where our son was still standing so no one would take Jackie before us. So we went to fill out the papers for the adoption. The woman told us that Jackie was picked up by the Sherriffs Department because some kids threw her in an icy pond. She is a perfect addition to our family and she just recently got a new kitty pal. We love Jackie!

Your beagles name: Winkle
Your beagles age: 8 years 7 months
Gender: Male
Nutro nature's choice lite mixed with grain free + wet

 
Winkle practically has every behavior pattern identified by the dog books. From the thinking with his nose, the endless appetite, to being a kind natured dog to any one who would rub his head. I'm sorry I did not socialize him to other dogs until last summer but instead of horse playing with other dogs at the dog park, he's just content with barking at or running behind the younger dogs dispite his arthritis. Winkle is not my baby, he has earned the right of being my companion, personal trainer, and watch dog.

Please tell us what you feed your beagle: Beniful

 Words truly can not express the love and joy I receive from my dog. She IS my soul mate. I got her as my first dog when I was in 5th grade and she is still with me at the age of 24. She helped me through many hard years filled with abuse,addiction,and mental issues. Whenever I would cry she would start to paw at me to let me know she was there for me. The fact that she could be so understanding and loving when the world can be so cruel showed me just how special she was and how blessed I was to have her in my life. I can not wait to celebrate her birthday on June 1st,2012! She has been considered obese since she was 8 yet she is still keeps on trucking, waddling her way by my side. Like I said the bond we have can not be spoken in words but can only be felt. Thank you God for giving me Cassie!

Your beagles age: 11 1/2  years
Gender: Female

What do you feed your beagle: Purina One (Healthy Weight Formula) & Tuna!
Betty Boo came into our pack after being rescued by my neighbor from a puppy mill, then to me. When I got her she was 9 years old. She is now leader of our pack! She is very sweet, squeezable, loves the sun, great digger...to find a nice cool spot in the dirt, stubborn as heck on walks- too many good smells (we do these twice a day) to keep her figure as best as possible. She loves tuna. When you open a can tuna she does the crazy dance- her eyes bug out and she goes in twirls around the room and loses her balance, until her entire head is in the bowl. She has such a personality and I love her a ton!

Your beagles name: Ted
Your beagles age: 13  1/2
Gender: Male
Please tell us what you feed your beagle: California Natural
family had decided it was time to add a puppy to our pack the question was what breed?  Brandon (14) wanted a border collie, Jared (13) wanted a bassett hound and Riley (8) was undecided.  We blended the traits of the two breeds and that is how we came to select an 8 week old beagle named Ted.  Ted was a very calm puppy and we knew instantly he was for us so we agreed to wait a few days and make certain.  Riley and I dropped the boys off at football practice and we couldn't wait soo.. we picked up Ted and when we all went back to pickup the boys they saw Riley with leash in hand  and I wish you could have seen the sight I saw and felt the excitement in the air!
Teds true personality emerged and what a rascal!  He was truly a perfect fit!  I can't even begin to tell you anything wonderful about Ted because everthing about Ted IS wonderful!!!  Every trait that depicts a beagle...well that is our boy.  When playing he would get so excited and start running so fast that he couldn't stop so he would crash into the walls!  The boys took every pillow we owned and lined the walls so when Ted hit he wouldn't get hurt.  He was forever burying his toys in the couch and packed the couch with socks. Ted  went blind around 7 but nothing stops his fun!  We're Blessed!!!

Sadly, on February 10, 2013, Ted passed away.

Your beagles name: Jumpstart
Your beagles age: 13yrs 10 months
Gender: Male
 
What do you feed your beagle: mostly pedigree little champions, or pretty much anything he wants
When Jumpstart was born, nov 14 1999. He was the last (6th) puppy. He wasnt breathing, and not much of a heartbeat, so we had to "jumpstart" him to life, hence his name. I started calling him "the jumpstarted puppy" and the name just stuck. He's the best dog I've ever had! Jumpy would go fishing with us and run rabbits all day, we tried to give him away once, and he ran almost 30 miles to come back to us! and we had just moved 3 weeks earlier. Recently he had gotten pretty sick, he,s doing alot better and hopefully we have him around for a long time.Jumpstart just became a father to 6 beautiful puppies.
