John Lemon: John waited 2 years for his forever home and the wait was worth it. He got a great home. Here's what his new dad has to say: Johnny is doing very well. We had our second vet visit over the weekend to make sure his system is handling his meds well. All good on that front. His dosage will be increased a bit within the next few days as he's still having occasional panic attacks. Aside from that he seems to be all settled in and is content with his routine and friends. His housebreaking is also going well and he is once again able to have the run of the apartment during the day. I'm certainly happy to have him here and he was totally spoiled by everyone over the holidays. His dog walker even made him a winter coat.

Chou Chou Floyd (now Elle): When we first laid eyes on the pictures of Chou Chou (now Eleanor/"Elle") in October 2014, we had that same special feeling that Lonnie Amelia (now Franklin) brought out in us in April 2013. After six long weeks of unexpected, but necessary, medical care, Elle came to us looking scared, exhausted, and unhealthy. Less than one month later, she has already far exceeded our expectations. Among other health improvements, her heart rate has increased from 60 to 80 beats per minute. Best of all, Franklin has welcomed her into our family and made it possible for us to adopt instead of foster.

Elle's resiliency in overcoming and learning to manage her ongoing medical issues is an inspiration to all of those around her - both canine and human. We relish the opportunity to continue to watch her grow and have already forgotten what life was like before she rescued us!

Champ Hughes (now Dexter): Dexter is such a sweet boy - so full of energy and fun. We are so thankful we were able to add him to our family. Oakley has learned to like his little brother. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and a blessed new year.

Valla Hughes (now Daisy): We met Valla/Daisy in October and knew right away she belonged with us. She is enjoying her new family and playing lots of games with her younger sister Piper. She also is happy to just sit and cuddle with anyone who asks. Daisy is a great addition to our family and we wish to thank Beagle Rescue of Southern Maryland for letting us adopt this wonderful little lady.

Licki Lu Hughes: Lulu has adjusted very well to our new home! She loves to follow us around the house, snuggle up at night, and go for walks around the neighborhood. She misses us while we aren't home and we miss her too! Lulu brings up much happiness and joy, and we forgot what it's like to live without her! We are excited to see how well she travels and gets along with our families' dogs as we travel for the holidays! We are very thankful for the opportunity to adopt Lulu!

Buzz Baldwin: "Little” Buzz was supposed to be our 2nd Foster dog. After a successful 1st try--we grabbed the “adorable goofball” as our next chance. He got a long so well with his new brother Hershey (12yr lab) and sister/grandma Roxy (16yr beagle mix). However, the human Garcias-- Dad and girls protested ever letting this handsome furball go. He just wants to be with you--in the bathroom, …”hey is that you in the shower? Just checking!” He knocks (scratches) on doors to let you know-he wants in! And his little trick also works to open the cabinet doors. The prized trash can was retrieved; however, resident bully Alpha crippled granny dog Roxy got all the old fajita meat and old cheese to herself--and all the messy poo too.? Buzz also likes to jump up high--like a circus dog onto my side table so he can see outside. I guess I can buy new picture frames! So, good Buzz has a little alter ego--we call “Kevin” when he is naughty. He has the body of Kevin Hart , Mall Cop-which unfortunately hasn’t been whittled down with all the love and treats since he joined us!

Mickey Hughes: Mickey arrived at my door as a foster on a cold and rainy January night. In addition to being heart worm positive with a difficult treatment ahead, he was incredibly anxious and fearful. During our early walks around the neighborhood, he would crawl with his tail tucked underneath him and hit the ground with every noise or passerby. His vet believed his behavior was consistent with being an abandoned hunting or kennel dog. While the early days required much patience as Mickey learned domestic life, he responded immediately to a kind voice and loving gestures giving us the encouragement to carry on. It was clear Mickey really wanted to trust people and be a family member. It didn't take long until he stole my heart and I knew he was here to stay. Through positive reinforcement, Mickey's confidence has grown exponentially. Mickey now bounces out of the house every morning for his walk, and exudes the joy of a puppy. He thrives in the company of a motley crew of canine friends and spends many days with an older lab who calms his separation anxiety and has taught him to play with toys and give kisses. He is still *all* beagle and as mischievous as they come, but we wouldn't have it any other way. Thank you, BRSM, for saving this little soul with a true heart of gold!

Bouncer George: Bouncer is doing very well. It turns out that he loves cats, which was really the only concern we had. We're making good progress with house training. Bouncer and our older beagle get along very well and spend most of their time chasing each other around the house and yard, or sleeping in a little pile. They're adorable together. Suffice to say, we love Bouncer. Thank you for letting Bouncer become a part our family!

Uno: Uno was found in early 2011 tied to a dumpster in Virginia. Thankfully, BRSM stepped in and saved him. He is is remarkably sweet and pleasant, but also remains quite skittish (especially around trash trucks - go figure). Somehow, despite his demure nature, however, he manages to be in complete control of our household. Unie enjoys smelling and snacking and sees no reason to wait for sunrise to get up and going on both. He has a very broad definition of food (mmm, crumbled drywall, anyone?) which has caused a bit of beagle bulge and his uncle to dub him Sir Cumference. His blonde eyelashes are a hit around the neighborhood, and passing cars have stopped more than once to get a better glimpse of his cute self and ask questions about him. He is truly a wonderful ambassador for his breed. We are so grateful to BSRM for saving our best friend and bringing him to us!

Lemon Henderson (now Sophie Blue): Thank you for all you do! I know some days are harder than others. I wanted to share this pic of Sophie formerly Lemon. She is a happy and fun pup who LOVES her kid! Soph dressed up and took her Kid to Petsmart for a photo. P.S. Thank you for rescuing our pup so we could choose her to be ours.

Gloria Henderson (now Bea): Gloria, now called Bea or Beagley, is super sweet and coming out of her shell more each day. She is happiest playing in the yard o r taking walks and her confidence is growing. Our lab mix, Benny, loves her so much and he's a good companion to her as well. We couldn't be more pleased!

Ace King George: We kept the name Ace and he has settled in really well. He and his step-brother, Jax (2yo black lab), have great fun chasing each other around the yard and selecting sticks for tug-of-war. He is a good snuggler and with a gentle touch of his paw he reminds you that he jumped on the couch and snuggled in for a 30 minute petting session and 10 minutes isn't enough.

Quinn Charles: This is Quinn Charles (in the pink harness) who we adopted last December! She is doing super well and loving life! It's a rough life lounging on mom's nice couch all morning with her brother!

Carley Henderson (now Atlas): We've seen an incredible transformation in Atlas since we brought her home. She has adjusted well to our lifestyle and is learning quickly in her training classes! She and our other beagle, Chapo, are like two peas in a pod. Atlas' demure, gentle demeanor and agile, slender build is a striking contrast to the large, boisterous and attention-loving Chapo. Chapo has already showed her the ropes. They spend their days napping and playing together, chewing up toys, hiding bones from one another behind pillows and in corners, chasing squirrels (well.... trying to), sniffing (and sometimes tasting) street trash, surfing counters for prospective snacks, and getting into general mischief. She's much more nimble than Chapo and seems to enjoy making Chapo look sluggish while she runs laps around him and clears couches 3 times her height. She's such a sweet pup and we couldn't be happier. She's one of us now!

Angel Charles: Here is a picture of my beagle rescue dog, ANGEL CHARLES (now known as Angel Charles Widows). She truly is a SUCCESS story. I only had Angel for 6 weeks when she bolted when I fell over on some uneven ground. She was gone for 28 hours and I was devastated, as you can imagine. BRSM volunteers were a tremendous help with putting up flyers, etc. and were about to bring in Dogs Finding Dogs when a miracle happened - Angel found her way home through the woods the next night and to put it mildly, she was ecstatic to finally be home where she belonged. I will forever be grateful for the volunteers who helped and gave me such wonderful support.

Lupe Hughes (now Maggie): Maggie is really loving life here with us. We took her for a visit to her new Vet for a check up to make sure all her infections are gone. She still needs one last dose for the hookworms and ringworms. Everything else is very good. Maggie is learning to take treats from our hands. Usually she wants us to put it down and she will eat it when she's ready. Which has to be pretty fast with Sadie lingering close by. LOL She can run in and out of the house as she pleases, so we haven't had any accidents. Sadie and Maggie love to cuddle together and they do sleep together. The picture of them in the truck was the ride home from Beagle Bash. They passed right out. LOL She will have her first spa treatment at the end of the month. I'm sure she'll do well. She sits and lets me clean her ears, massage her and brush her. :D We are so happy we had the chance to adopt her. One of the best decisions we've ever made. :D Thank you for all that you do.

Jack Ritter: We are so delighted with our BRSM boys, Jack and Morgan. They are so affectionate, calm, well-tempered, honest and really appreciate being in a caring home. We constantly comment that we don’t know who is luckier: them or us. But when you see them smile, play, or rest totally at ease, it’s just a wonderful feeling.

Cedar Hughes (now Darby): What a couple of happy beagle buddies we have. Eddie (formerly Edward Ridgely), and Darby (on the left) have worked there way deep into our hearts and home. They enjoy their cozy beds and belly rubs. Many an hour is spent in the yard, nose to the ground and baying at the wind. They are a right couple of beagles they are! We wouldn't trade them for the world. Thanks BRSM for being there for them and us.

Shyloh Charles: Sadly, Shyloh, a laid back beagle, passed away in late spring 2014. We adopted him with Morgan and they were like husband and wife. She was the spunky, barky one and he was the quiet gentleman. In the picture, Morgan on the left and Shyloh on the right. We still have a terrier we inherited but of all the dogs we ever had, Shy was one of a kind - the sweetest, most loyal beagle we ever had. We would have had him 10 years in Oct. The vet thought he was about 15. He had some kind of episode and was more or less paralyzed the day he died. Morgan passed away a couple years ago of cancer.. We appreciate the work you do to keep this wonderful breed happy and healthy.

Shadow Baldwin (now Sammy): Sammy is a dream! He is already a part of our family. He had lost some weight while in the shelter and he is a picky eater. So we have taken to making our own Sammy food; chicken, vegetables and sweet potatoes. Now he dances all over the kitchen while I mix up his dinner every night. He also loves to give kisses to everyone, but he shares little nibbles just for me! He was having some neurological problems with his hips and back legs when he arrived, but he is significantly better. The vet even rechecked him he was doing so well, and she agrees there is a marked improvement! He is also learning to use his new deaf doggie collar so we can "call" him when we need too. And has visited our wonderful groomer Walter twice and they are becoming fast friends. Thank you for rescuing the odd one, "the poodle." Our lives are enormously better with Sammy.

Beth Halifax: From the very beginning, we’ve had no problems with Beth and our other dog and two cats getting along. We’ve had no problems at mealtime and Beth eats all of her food at every meal. The two dogs don’t bother each other at all during meals. Abby knows where her bowl is and Beth knows where hers is. Our yard is huge so she loves exploring and she loves our evening walks. We have a bunny who keeps showing up in our backyard. I always make sure the bunny isn’t in the yard before I let them out. The funny thing is that Beth is oblivious to the scent of bunny, whereas Abby is sniffing all over.

John and I are so happy that we have Beth and are giving her all the love she deserves. She’s a great little girl and has adjusted very well.

Lucy Mills: Lucy is a total "love bug" and gets along really great with our other beagle, Sasha. She loves to cuddle on the bed and wakes me up 6:30 every morning snuggling my neck and wagging her tail, like "come on mom, it's breakfast time". She loves to take the basket of toys outside every evening after dinner and run around like a nut pulling all of the toys out of the basket. We are still working on coming through the back door, but seems to be improving since there is always a treat waiting for her. She definitely has made this her home and is opening up a little more each day. We just love her dearly and feel very blessed to have rescued such a sweet, loving little girl. Thank you for this opportunity.

Skipper Henderson : Skipper is doing great! He loves to eat fruits and vegetables, though he is not fond of lettuce. He is kind to his beagle sister Jane. I think he knows this is his forever home and he's at ease now.

Satchel Rock: Hello, my name is Satchel. I am about 6 ys old and I've been with my forever family for 4 of those years, and I am a beagle's beagle.

I live with my humans, Mike and Stacey and my beagle brother Barkley, who I quickly let know I was the alpha. Luckily he didn't mind, and we've been inseparable ever since.

Like I said, I am a beagle's beagle. Leave food out and I will get to it. Ever "misplace" a whole loaf of bread? It's like I can't help myself. I have to inhale the food as fast as possible. But my downfall is I can be coerced into doing most tasks with just a Milk Bone - even taking a bath. Ugh.

I love being outside and going on walks, sniffing everything. My favorite are scent walks, where I'm allowed to lead the way and follow any scent I find. I am high energy and very adept at finding gross items my humans wish I would leave alone, like that mouse my humans wouldn't let me keep. I think they were just jealous.

Like most beagles, I am very intelligent, and a little stubborn. I don't care for games like fetch or performing tricks. I like a challenge and this can put a bit of a strain on my human relationships. Put me in the back yard for a few minutes? Well I climb fences, dig under them, or just open the latch and strut out. It was advised that I should be kept in a crate until I settled into my new home, but I don't do small spaces. Mike bought me a 6'x6'x4' chain link fence enclosure. I wasn't a fan, and so began a game of chess, or at least chess moves for me, and checkers for my humans. The first day I pushed the chain link away from the frame and slid out. The humans cable tied the the chain link to the frame tight, the next day I broke the cable ties and slid out again. The humans doubled up the cable ties. I couldn't break that, so I climbed the 4' fence and was out. The humans responded by adding a roof to the fence. The next day I opened the gate door. The humans responded by bungee-cording it shut. I noticed the hinges of the door weren't tight so I pushed them out and was free. The next day the hinge was tightened. The humans thought they won, but I had them right where I wanted. I proceeded to manipulate the chain link and bend it so that I made a hole of twisted metal in the middle of the fence and got through. The next day the enclosure was disassembled and I had free reign of the house ever since.

BRSM said I have the "markings of a party beagle." It's completely true. Whenever we have guests I make sure to make my rounds and garner as much attention as possible. I love humans. Even more so if I can get them to rub my belly. I am especially fond of the ladies. Mike said I need to be a little more subtle, and that I tend to be a little to forward with my affections. I love kids too. I never mind when they poke, or prod, or pull me. I've even been known to fraternize with cats (just don't tell the fellas, if that got out it would ruin my reputation).
