SO, YOU ARE READY TO ADOPT A BEAGLE!
Adopting a dog is a big commitment. You can expect to have your new companion for up to 10-15 years and even longer in some cases. A dog requires a lot of love, patience, understanding, and consistency and training. A dog is a big financial commitment, especially as they age and vet visits become more common. Your reward is a happy, fun-loving dog who is a joy to have as part of your family.
By adopting a dog through Beagle Paws you have the opportunity to SAVE A LIFE. Many of the dogs featured on our website would not have a second chance at life if it were not for kind people like you. Once you have adopted a Beagle Paws dog you become part of the Beagle Paws family. We keep in close contact with all our adoptive families and offer support and guidance whenever needed and offer plenty of opportunities to meet up with like-minded Beagle owners to trade stories.
SAVE A LIFE!
We do require that all Beagles listed on our website are to be adopted as family pets and live indoors in your home.
All applicants are very carefully screened to ensure we place the right dog with your family. Beagles are matched based on the general lifestyle of the family and care they can provide. To some it may seem rigorous, but we want to ensure adopters understand the commitment they are embarking on.
All adoptions require a completed application, an interview with a Beagle Paws representative, and a home visit.
ADULT DOGS $400
transportation fees may be required for some dogs
SENIOR DOGS $150
10 years old and over
All adoption fees are non-refundable and subject to change. All Beagles are spayed or neutered, vet examined, dewormed and come with a collar and identification tag. Discounts can be arranged if adopting more than one beagle at a time. Cost of air-transportation is extra. Air-transportation costs can range from $300 to $800. Out-of-province adopters will be required to purchase a crate for air transportation purposes.
If you are interested in adopting a beagle, please complete our ADOPTION APPLICATION. Your application will be reviewed and a volunteer will contact you within five days to start the process. Where possible we will perform a home visit and interview before an adoption is finalized. In some cases reference letters will be required and we will need to speak to your vet before an adoption is finalized.
FACTS & MYTHS
Beagles should be kept in outdoor enclosures or pens.
Beagles enjoy the fresh air and should receive plenty of exercise through routine walks on a leash or in a fenced area. It is inhumane to keep a dog confined to a small enclosure for long periods of time.
Beagles are dirty and have a distinctive smell.
Any dog that does not receive proper bathing and grooming will emit an unpleasant smell. Well cared for beagles are clean and smell no different than other house dogs.
Beagles aren’t meant to be pets and can’t be housetrained.
Beagles are one of the most affectionate and loyal of all dog breeds, making them great pets. Though beagles can be stubborn, they are eager to learn and only need a consistent routine and plenty of praise.
Beagles are only for hunting.
Beagles have a strong scent drive and have been used for hunting historically, however, they are wonderful family pets who thrive when living inside with a loving family. In fact, Beagles have become extremely popular show dogs and house pet in recent years.
