How to Find a Baby Beagle for Adoption
Beagle puppies are available for adoption from various organisations and sometimes individuals. (little beagle image by Denveros from

Developed in the 16th century in England as game hounds, the beagle has a long history. Available in two sizes, with maximum heights of 13 and 15 inches, the dogs resemble small fox hounds. The breed was recognised in 1885 and commonly fits into the family as a pet or is used in rabbit hunting. Adopting a beagle puppy adds a lively addition to the family.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Contact local dog shelters and rescue organisations. Many local organisations are not breed specific but may have beagles available. The adoption process for shelters or rescue organisations commonly involves submitting an application including references. The organisation may do home inspections and contact references to confirm the puppy is going to a good home.

  2. 2

    Contact a beagle rescue organisation. Dedicated to only working with beagles, these organisations will have only beagles and beagle cross puppies. Because these organisations specialise in a single breed, they generally cover larger geographic areas than local rescue organisations. They usually have a similar adoption process as local organisations.

  3. 3

    Check local notice boards, veterinarian offices and pet supply stores for listings of beagle puppies. These listings are usually placed by individuals rather than rescue organisations. In some cases, the puppies are available for adoption and in others they are for sale. Puppies adopted from individuals often have not had the health checks performed by the rescue organisations.
