Our next adoption event will be held on March 25 from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. at Mutt Mart in Baltimore.  We're all very excited over this new rescue friendly shop in Hamilton (2904 Hamilton Ave, Baltimore, MD 21214).  They are earning for themselves a great reputation as the place to be for pet supplies and a good cup of joe!  We do hope you'll join us, whether you are looking to add to your family or you have a BRSM foster dog to show off.  (If you're bringing your foster dog, please let Betsy know by noon on March 22.)  This is a mom and pop shop, not a big box store and that's a concept we can get behind!  Put this event on your calendar!
 
 

 
The pictured dogs below are in desperate need of foster homes.  If you can help, please contact icanhelp@beaglemaryland.org.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
We were absolutely touched and delighted to have received an unsolicited donation from Pearls for Pups!  This is an organization that makes and sells jewelry and donates the proceeds to worthy rescues.  Their generous donation just showed up in our PayPal account one day!  We thought you might want to support this wonderful organization.  You can visit their website at http://www.pearlsforpups.com/ or their Facebook page at https://m.facebook.com/pearlsforpupss/
 
 

 
 
 
It is with deep sadness that we report the passing of the unofficial mascot of BRSM.  His best friend Alex wrote the obituary posted below.  Munchkin was found nearly frozen to death in a snowbank in 2010.  His rescuer took him in and nursed him back to health at which point she turned his care over to us.  Alex loved him at first sight. Unfortunately, he lived in an apartment with a "no pets allowed" policy and it took several months before rules could be bent and Alex received clearance from the powers-that-be to adopt this tiny beagle with the wayward tongue.  Until that time, he visited Munchkin at every single adoption event.  From the day he came home, Munchkin never wanted for a thing.  He had a wardrobe to envy and a Hollywood style social life.  Munchie attended movie openings, outdoor restaurant socials, and rescue adoption events and raised thousands of dollars over his lifetime for other dogs in need, but most particularly for BRSM dogs.  We mourn his passing with Alex and extend our gratitude to Alex's tireless efforts in promoting the rescue, but mostly for giving Munchkin the life that we wish all dogs - complete, unconditional love and acceptance. Munchkin's final accolade came on January 3, 2017.  He was named "Cutest Dog." by the Washingtonian. We knew it all along. 
 
 Alex asks that in lieu of Milk Bones, donations be made in Munchkin's name to Beagle Rscue of Southern Maryland.  Checks can be  made out to BRSM and mailed to PO Box 983, Waldorf, MD  or payment via PayPal from any Donate button on our webpage.  Please make sure you note on your donagion it's in memory of Munchkin so that we can send you thank you acknowledgement.  There is space for a message under the donation.  Condolences may be sent to munchkinandalex@aol.com or posted on Munchkin's Fan Page on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MunchkinsFanPage/
 
 
 
 
 
Don't forget shoppers!  If you're ordering from Amazon, this is a quick and easy way to donate without actually writing a check!
 
As a completely publicly funded rescue, we are always scraping the bottom of the barrel to come up with money for vetting.  we have an absolutely painless way for you to donate to the care and vetting of our dogs AND IT WON'T COST YOU A DIME!!!!!  While we'd PREFER for you to enter the Amazon site through the portal below (we earn WAY more money that way), Amazon has launched AmazonSmile:  (http://smile.amazon.com/)  It's easier to remember "Smile.Amazon" than it is to remember to enter their site via an icon on ours.  Secondly, you can select your preferred charity (which is Beagle Rescue of Southern Maryland, of course!) and it is SAVED.  Once you've selected BRSM as  your preferred charity, every time you go back to Amazon Smile (and we suggest that you bookmark it) you're already there.  Amazon will donate .05% of every purchase to BRSM.  (Although .05% is better than 0%, we'd still prefer you to use the portal below, as we then earn between 4 - 6 % AWESOME!!
 
Meanwhile, the iGive icon below will work to get you into such sites as Macy's, Target, Lowes,  etc.  Through this icon, those companies will also donate a portion of your purchase to us.  You're going to be shopping, anyway.  It couldn't be any easier to donate to a worthy cause!  Please remember us as you do your shopping!

Lately there has been a plethora of good information for pet owners circulating on Facebook. 
 
If you have questions concerning HOUSE TRAINING, the following link may prove helpful.  We are sometimes questioned on the feasibility of housetraining an older dog, the presumption being that they are just too set in their ways.  This just isn't so.  Please have a read: http://healthypets.mercola.com/sites/healthypets/archive/2010/05/12/four-proved-principles-of-housebreaking-a-dog-of-any-age.aspx?x_cid=20150524_ranart_four-proved-principles-of-housebreaking-a-dog-of-any-age_facebookpets 
 
 
One trait of beagledom that can be panic inducing to the uninitiated is the REVERSE SNEEZE.  We've had adopters take their snorting and gasping beagles straight to the vet after a particularly lengthy episode, only to have the vet laugh and explain that this is a completely normal phenomenon.  "That will be $75.00, thank you very much."  You can read about it here: http://healthypets.mercola.com/sites/healthypets/archive/2012/06/22/pets-seasonal-allergies.aspx?x_cid=20150526_ranart_pets-seasonal-allergies_facebookpets
 
Does your dog suffer withSEASONAL ALLERGIES?  If Snoopy's scratching and wheezing keeps you up night, the chances are pretty good.  You'll find this article helpful:  http://healthypets.mercola.com/sites/healthypets/archive/2012/06/22/pets-seasonal-allergies.aspx?x_cid=20150526_ranart_pets-seasonal-allergies_facebookpets
