Hi all,

I'm desperately seeking a permanent home for my two foster girls.

I took them from a small sanctuary through a friend of a friend, because they weren't coping at all with being there. Because the rescue group was so small (and located elsewhere) my partner and I took on the task of finding a new home ourselves. However, 6 months later we've really struggled to find contacts or places to advertise these little cuties. We've had a few people interested, but their working hours have meant they could not adopt them. They are smashing girls, and really deserve to find their family.

We are getting desperate because they are typical beagles - not good at being left home alone. Although this problem seems to actually stem from opportunism rather than anxiety (they don't hold back searching for food while you're gone!! often causing a big mess!), it still makes life very difficult. I need to get back to work, and at the moment I can't because of the dogs. I've had them 6 months, and they're totally attached and settled in when they should really be settling into their 'real' home. If it wasn't for my job, I would keep them myself. They could possibly be crate trained to help with the separation problems.

Basic facts:

- 5 and a half yrs old
- Beagle sisters, MUST go together
- Passports, vaccinated, microchipped, not spayed yet but money provided for this
- Good with other dogs, scared of some larger dogs at first, need more socialisation
- Housetrained, although occasional accidents occur (rarely)
- Good with cats, very scared of some cats, apparently used to chase other less dominant cats, so need to be with cats with a stable, non-aggressive but strong personality
- Good with children, recommended 8+ years and only calm children. No babies.
- Great on long and short car journeys
- Can run freely on beach and in forest. Not in areas with traffic, though. Always come back (unusual for beagles!)
- V. intelligent, learn quickly with food-based learning but of course can be stubborn sometimes
- Extremely calm in the house. Sleep all day, even with short walks.
- Total cuddle-monsters!!! Real sweethearts - they just love to love you!
- Can be anxious in new situations if left without their mummy/daddy around. They really value knowing and trusting the people they're with.
- Behaviour shows they have been abused, probably beaten. Sometimes they are very scared of new people if they move towards them too fast. In general they are very calm, however.
- Not good at being left alone, possible separation anxiety but mainly they go looking for food (even on the kitchen table), go toilet, and sometimes bark while left alone.
- NOT to be used for breeding under any circumstances.

Looking for a home with someone with a bit of doggie knowledge/experience or a willingness to learn positive training methods. Knowledge of beagles a big plus. Owner must be calm, positive, but also firm. People must be home large portion of the day, these girls shouldn't be left for more than 4 hours alone. Can go with other dogs, possibly cats depending heavily on the cats' personalities. There are some special things about these girls, so please get in contact for full info.

-Cost: 0
-Money will be provided for spaying both girls.
-Any other costs (transport) will be provided by us.
-The girls come with beds, leads, harnesses, raincoats, bowls, toys etc.

Contact me at xtofupixiex@riseup.net for full info, photos etc!

Any help with websites where i can advertise the girls is also much appreciated!

Have you considered spaying them before they leave? This would ensure that they are not used by some unscrupulous person for breeding. I would add photos to this thread as it will help with interest.

I know they are attached to each other but possibly 2 dogs with separation issues is a lot for most people to take on?

Just my opinion but I don't know the breed

Hiya,

I took them to be spayed but was told to wait 3 months after the season before it was possible. Unfortunately the date I planned to return to the vets was one week to late, as the next season started before I had a chance! I now have to wait another three months :/

Because these girls can be anxious I think that separating them would make them much worse to be left alone in the house. At least they keep each other company and give each other confidence.

I'll upload a photo now smile.gif
