email us the story and picture of the
happy and successful adoption of your CBR-East Beagle!
Sam is doing just wonderful!! His tail is permanently up and
alert. That makes us so happy knowing that he is happy!
His eye contact is becoming so much more connected (esp w/some
exercises we play)! He came here very hesitant about our french
door that I take him out thru and now he literally LEAPS thru it with
a running start! He plays with his toys and more. He loves
his walks and noticing everything. He keeps up at a great clip
as I mentioned, which is good so he can keep up and have fun at the
same time. There was one accident (the first day...to be
expected of course) and that has been it. He really gets where
and when to go. He is adjusting fabulously and everyday is
making new strides...and his favorite...snuggling in our bed and
having sweet dreams! Man, is he hard to wake up!

you might like to see a few pics of Baci. She is a sweetheart
and just wants to be a lap dog. Sleeps all night in bed with
us and is not an early riser. We are so glad to have her &
she's a great companion for Precious.

is the sweetest dog I've ever met. He has become my shadow when
I'm home. He may cause injury to me because everytime I turn
around, I'm tripping over him!! But who could get upset when
they look at those soulful eyes.
night in our home went fine. I tried to get him to settle down
on his bed in my bedroom, but he was so wound up sniffing sniffing
sniffing all over the house. Even Jenny got sick of following
him around and went to bed! So I put his bed in a crate in my
room and he slept there. He was quiet as a mouse and did great.
He and Jenny are getting along quite fine. There was some
postering this morning and Jenny was nipping at his legs, but he let
her know when he didn't like it and she stopped. They're outside
now alternating playing and ignoring each other. When he's in he
just wonders around the house, and comes to find me every once in a
while for a little petting and then goes back on his merry way.
He certainly is a little piggles. If someone
is in the kitchen, he's there! He stole half of Jenny's meal this
morning before I could even pull him away! She's not one to
immediately wolf down her food so I'm going to have to figure out some
way to deal with that. But if that's my only problem with this,
I consider it to be a problem free transition!!

am so glad to report that my little Nina was not too disturbed about
the fireworks going off in celebration of the New Year! Nina is
doing very well and after a short while with me and I really do so
enjoy her. She sits on my knee and sleeps cuddles up next to me!
Enjoy these photos of her. I do really believe that she now
feels that this is her home.

just wanted to send you a picture of Ashley! She is doing great
and Max is adjusting as well. They are having a wonderful time
running around the yard together. We are happy to have her as a
part of our family now! We hope you have a wonderful holiday
season and healthy Hew Year!

"Blitz" now Peggy came to us (as our foster Beagle) with a
broken left hind leg, it never impeded her running, jumping or
playing. We've had to struggle to keep her quiet from the start
because she is an active little girl.
first day in our home, she settled in on the living room chair as if
she'd been here the whole time. Our older girl, Trixie (also a
Beagle) who is very shy just sat next to her, as if telling her it
would all be OK. Her other raucous big sister Stella showed her
how to get into trouble immediately. Peg learned very quickly,
Stella knocked the food off the table and Peggy was right there to
help her eat it. Together they formed the "trouble team."
Since her leg didn't quite heal right after 6 weeks,
the cast had to stay on for another 4 weeks. My husband Bill took
her every Friday to Dr. Werner (1 hour drive) to have her cast
changed. By Monday, Peg managed to get it filthy and I struggled
along with lots of tape to keep it on till Friday, even resorting to
duct tape. The Thursday before the cast was to be removed, she
took it off in the bushes and came trotting out proudly, as if to say
"Don't bother I did it myself." Although we have fostered many
dogs over the yeas, having worked at the ASPCA, we knew from say one
we couldn't give her back. Having lost 2 of our beloved dogs
last year, Trixie became sad too, and we didn't know how we were to
survive without them, then came Stella and Peggy, our lives are
enriched and fuller because of it.
Thank you Peggy and Cascade for this gift.

a quick note to let you know how Desperado is doing. He is just
remarkable. He mastered the stairs in about five days. He is the
sweetest little guy and him and Diamond get along so well. We still
have a way to go with the bathroom and leash issue, but I am sure that
we will get there. Carolyn thank you so much for bringing Desperado
into my life. He is such a joy to be around, I can't help but love

Desperado's new brother, Diamond (RIGHT), has a CBR
happy ending, too!
Marvin's such a wonderful, sweet dog, He is so loving, lovable
and willing to learn and to please. I do know that what was easy
for Buddy, is not for him. Marvin is held back by his fears, but
he overcomes each one slowly, but surely. When I look at his
pictures, he doesn't even look like the same dog. I find it so
sad that his life, and that of the other lab beagles, is considered
understand why you go through such an extensive application process.
Certainly adopting a lab beagle is not for everyone, maybe not even
most people. It does take time, patience and understanding.
But I'm so happy that we did. I know that I rescued Marvin, but
he has greatly enriched my life.

An update on Marvin: Hi! Marvin is officially a Beagle
- he captured a frog and tried to eat him! He's really improving
all around. He's getting better with his house training - still
a little ways to go, but he seems to be getting the hand of it.
He's learning to "play" games with me, and is more and more relaxed in
general. He's just the sweetest little dog!
He is doing great with us.
He loved my son right from the beginning. But since he nips
(just in playing not for real) my daughter was a little slow to come
around, but now my daughter even loves him. He gets along very
well with our Irish Jack Russell (our older dog had to be put to sleep
shortly after we got Jack, which we knew was most likely going to
happen). And he loves all the teenagers that come and go around here.
We go on walks to the local Marina and he
loves to go. The 2 dogs look like twins until you look a little
closer, and realize he has more of a beagle face then jack russell.
He won't go in the water at all. Won't even get his feet wet.
My other dog jumps right in, we can't keep her out.
He let my son pick him up almost
immediately. And then I could, but the rest of the family
couldn't because he would turn his head as if to bite you and growl.
Now we all can, if we talk with him as we are picking him up.
The only problems we are having is he still has some trouble with
housebreaking during the evening, so I have been leaving a pee-pad out
at night and he uses that. I know if we kept him in his crate
and walked him instead of just letting him out in the fenced in yard
we could probably fix that, but my other dogs were not in crates so he
didn't want to be in his either and kept barking and whining. My
kids thought it was too mean and kept letting him out. And the other
thing is he barks at "EVERYTHING". He has gotten a little better
with the barking but it is probably our biggest problem. But I
think that is the Beagle in him because he does have a Beagle bark.
Otherwise he looks like a Jack Russell.
All is well with us, I will attach a few pictures. I know
my kids must have pictures of him in their files. They are
always taking pictures. - The Zimmerman Family

My name is Helen and my family adopted a
beagle from your rescue June of 2006. Her name was Oakley and we
changed it to Maggie. We adopted her from your Beagle rescue on the
East Coast. The woman’s name was Pattie from your org; I have lost
contact with them due to my hectic life with work, family and Maggie.
wanted to share with you how great this dog is. I have had two dogs
in the past however Maggie surpasses them both. Maggie is so loving,
caring, and shows so much affection to all of us. At times it makes
my cry to see how she has changed from a scared animal, afraid to be
around any people, to an animal who runs to you at the door with many
kisses and that great tail wagging. She has such a wonderful
personality, at times I could swear by her expressions and eyes to
really know what she is thinking. We absolutely love her!!!!!! And
she loves us we can tell by the way she acts and plays with all of
recommend your rescue all the time. In the beginning I was so nervous
because she was a rescue dog. I thought how is she ever going to come
out of her shell. She must have had some traumatic things happen to
her, but with lots of love and patience she became a wonderful
addition to our family.
found out the trials of owning a beagle though, Maggie has gotten out
of the front door two times already. We are careful when opening the
door, however she has gotten through our legs and ran after a squirrel
and a rabbit. I was so terrified I would never get this beautiful
animal back. But after running down the street and pleading with her
we got her back both times and now use the garage door or the back
door for access to our home.
wanted to share with your organization how much joy she brings to our
home. Thanks a million.
