us the story and picture of the happy and successful adoption of your CBR
Dutch- Adopted 3/8/08!
Dutch came to us from a shelter. He was found by Animal
Control Officers racing through traffic in a busy
intersection, too frightened to stop moving. They were
able to coerce him to come over to them when they discovered
what a sweet dog he was! Who knows why his owners never
called or looked for him. Their loss! This is one
sweet guy who is great with dogs, kids, just everybody.
He waited and waited for his perfect family to come along and
adopt him...and as fate would have it, Jim and Judy S., of
Richland, WA saw his picture and bio on our site and fell in
love. They never looked back and on March 8th, Dutch
went to his new home. We will miss him but know he will
be forever happy now!

Farewell, sweet Milly...keep in touch, eh?
Ema/Milly- Adopted 3/21/08!
Ema came to us as a young girl running the streets in Oregon.
We know that a shock collar was used on her regularly, but
despite this, she kept her sweet and loving demeanor.
When her new family found her on our site, it was love at
first sight....they wanted her, and only her! So on
March 21, 2008, Ema, who has been renamed Milly by her family,
made her journey from Portland, OR to Victoria, BC Canada.
CBR Directors Susan O. and Michelle D. drove her from Portland
to the tip of Washington, where they met Milly's new mom, Mary
as she arrived on the ferry FROM Victoria. Paperwork was
signed, new leash and collar were given to Milly, and off they
went..back ON the ferry to her new land. She already has
met and loves her new beagle brother, Milo.
Milly and Milo meet for the first time.
Milly is CBR's 2nd international

Tuffy- Adopted 4/23/08!
A warm bed, a full belly, and
lots of loving--that’s all a beagle really needs, isn’t it?
Well, CBR’s Tuffy was found chained to a post in a yard
without shelter, food, or water. He had nothing but snow to
"drink" and nobody to love him. Neighbors took pity on Tuffy
and would throw him loaves of bread for food. This high-carb
diet had a detrimental effect on the poor boy’s figure, and
finally, the neighbors intervened, called the local animal
control, and Tuffy was brought to the local shelter. CBR was
subsequently contacted and Tuffy was brought into our program
where he lived at the Roberts’ foster home and learned what it
was like to be fed and cared for by wonderful people. Before
Oregon’s Spring Break, the Aust family was looking for another
little boy to love since they had recently lost their little
rescue beagle boy, Buddy, to cancer. They thought Tuffy would
fit right in to their family and CBR’s adoption coordinator
wholeheartedly agreed! Today, Tuffy has joined his new family
(where he is the “boy’ in a family of five females, including
two girl beagles, Avery & Gracie). His days of eating snow
for food are gone forever and he will live out his days being
well fed, well loved, and…well, allowed to be an indoor beagle
and even sleep on the couch sometimes!
Shiloh welcomes his new family
into his life!
Shiloh- Adopted 4/24/08!
What a journey this sweet boy has
been on. It started in Illinois in a dumpster where he
was left to die with 7 other beagles. All 8 of these
dogs were flown to CBR to safety. Shiloh's right ear was
chopped off by his former owner, to hide his hunting tattoo.
He was a broken spirit...but no more! He has a brand new
family who loves him.
picture coming soon!
Molly- Adopted 4/08!
Molly's story is a sad case of
neglect—until she found her way to CBR-West! Most of her 8-year
life she was forced to life in a small crate. She was only
allowed out when it was breeding time...over and over and over
again. When she could produce no more, she was destined to live
alone in the back yard where nobody paid any attention to her.
She had no water and was only fed when convenient. She was seen
often just eating the snow as a source of food/water. She merely
had a rug to call home out in the weather. Neighbors intervened
in an effort to save her. She was transported to CBR’s waiting
arms where she was spayed and a massive hernia repaired. Despite
her neglect, Molly is the most adorable, sweetest beagle who will
melt your heart. Russ &Cheri S from Poulsbo, WA, thought so too!
You see, Russ & Cheri adopted “Big” Bailey boy from CBR last June
and they were so touched by Molly’s story that they just had to
adopt her too! As Russ wrote to us in one of his emails, “Good
Golly, please may we have Miss Molly?” CBR’s three directors
replied, “Good Golly, OF COURSE, you can have Miss Molly!” …and
the rest, as they say, is history and a very happy ending for the
poor little beagle girl who used to eat snow and now races and
chases Bailey around the yard (oh, and helps him raid the
