Northern California Beagle Rescue
Beagles Available for Adoption

California - Santa Cruz June 23
Age: 13 yrs
Sex: female


We have a 13 year old Beagle mix here at the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter that is in need of placement. Her name is Mocha and she has a long history with us here at the shelter. In the past she was brought in multiple times as a stray, or protective custody after her owner was arrested. The last time she was here she was placed up for adoption and has been in that adoptive home since. Sadly, our Animal Control Officers were contacted today by Law Enforcement to assist after finding her owner deceased in her home. Mocha had been in the home with her deceased owner for 22 days, and was still bright eyed and bushy tailed to see some new people in her home. She has lost a significant amount of weight, and will need some slow refeeding to get back to a healthy weight.

We would like to find her placement for a few reasons. Her age and potential medical conditions as well her original owner, who we do not want to have any contact with. As I mentioned she is wonderful and loves every person she meets, but she is not fond of other dogs, and cant be in a home with any others. This has been her personality from the beginning.

I know that poses some challenges with placing her, but we are hoping for the best. Iíve included two photos below. The first one is when she was last here-where she was overweight. The second one is from yesterday ☹

Please meet Indy! We estimate that heís probably 8 years old and when he came into our care he was neutered and had a benign growth removed from his neck. Indy is doing very well in his foster home, and he is a very sweet guy who gets along with other dogs (unknown about cats), loves to explore outside and would do very well in a home with a doggy door for easy access to explore in a secure backyard. He also enjoys taking walks, loves to be petted, and enjoys playing with toys in his foster home.

Indy is a very gentle soul with soft expressive eyes and would love a home with people to love and spoil him! Heís pretty easy going but does have a beagle bark when he wants food or your attention. Indy would also do best in a single-story home as too many stairs up and down would tire him.

Please contact Eva if you would like to adopt sweet Indy!

Mr Potts - Pending Adoption
Age: 9 yrs
Sex: male

Meet Mr. Potts!

Mr. Potts came into our rescue as an owner surrender in April. He is about 9 years old and weighs about 30 pounds. He acclimated very easily into his foster home and gets along with his foster sister and with the cat that lives in the home.

He is very well behaved and likes to be near his foster mom all the time. He enjoys car rides and loves to go on walks. His reaction to other dogs on walks varies. Sometimes he is excited to see another dog and wants to play with them, other times he will bark and get agitated.

Every time mom returns from errands, Mr. Potts greets her by running to grab a stuffed toy to show her. He never really plays with the toys, but will always grab one before greeting someone or going outside for a sniff around. He uses the dog door and will explore a bit in the backyard, but prefers to be with people. He hasnít had any accidents in the home and does not get into things he shouldnít.
He has an old injury to his left hind leg and he will keep it pulled up when he wants to move quickly. It does not seem to cause him any pain and he can still be very active. He has been on Cosequin Glucosamine tablets since coming into the foster home and that has helped his leg movement improve.

He has had a recent dental and had two lower teeth removed as well as removal of a small benign growth from his muzzle.
He is frightened of loud noises and had to sleep very close with foster mom whenever fireworks were going off.

Mr. Potts would do well with an owner who is home most of the day, or another dog who would keep him company.

Elliot - Adoption Pending
Age: 18 mos
Sex: male

Elliot is an 18 month old beagle that is looking for his forever home. His previous owners bought him as a puppy and quickly realized that he had food and environmental, allergies.

The combination of them not speaking any English, complete lack of dog experience, and the dedication to see him through this caused them to take him into the shelter for euthanasia.

We were immediately contacted and asked if we would take him.
Elliot has been to our veterinarian; we put him on prescription food and medicated baths; his skin has almost cleared up and he looks absolutely amazing.

Please keep in mind he will need to stay on a prescription dog food for allergies. Elliot is a very kind, sweet natured dog that was well socialized with children. He is great with his foster siblings as you can tell by one of the photographs.

It would be great if he could go to a Home that either had another dog or a stay at home parent. He is more on the laid-back side and very easy-going. If you were interested in additional information on him, please contact Linea at 510-579-5850.

Age: 10mos

Dexter is a very playful 10-month-old beagle/Labrador mix. He is a youngster and he is going to need a family that has time to devote to a young dog so that he grows up to be a well-adjusted adult dog. He is a bigger boy that will need his exercise and having a playmate in his new home would be a bonus.

He does very well with other playful dogs and is always up for an adventure. Dexter is personable and loves being with people and playing with other dogs.. His new family should also be prepared for having a large puppy who is full of activity and can be mischievous at times. He is a great dog!!!

He would do best in a home that had a fenced in yard, being cooped up in an apartment, or condo would be a bit much for him.
If you would like additional information on this handsome boy, please contact Linea at 510-579-5850

Leo was purchased from a breeder in Hayward, he will be seven years old in October. He is looking for his new forever home, his family has gone through some changes within their household and he is spending a lot of downtime alone.

Heís a typical Beagle that needs the companionship of another dog or a stay at home parent. He is housebroken, loves to go for walks, and have his tummy scratched! Like all beagles, he is very food, and treat motivated!

He is a sweet dog and has never bitten anyone, however, he has a very aggressive bark at strangers and is very protective of his yard.

I don't think he would work well with a family with young children as he may snap if startled; he seems to be very anxious around children. An ideal home would have another dog for him to hang out with, a fenced in backyard, and no young children. If you are interested in him and you fit the criteria, feel free to reach out to Vanessa.
