Home found – pure breed beagle – female – 4 months old

Lavender has now been rehomed. Thank you everyone who showed interest.

If you are interested in purchasing Lavender, or offering a home for her, please call Terry Humphries on 021 274 9145, or email him at adaptablesigns@xtra.co.nz.

We are looking for a new forever family for a beautiful tricolour female, currently called Lavender, who needs re-homing due to owner illness.  The price for Lavender is $750 (usual puppy price $1500) – as a new home is needed quickly.

Lavender was born on 4th January 2015 at Burnsdale Beagles. She is fully vaccinated, microchipped, wormed, flea treated and will be NZKC registered. She has had successful surgery to repair a small umbilical hernia.

She has an amazingly loving temperament and has received some basic training.

As with all beagles, Lavender will need to go to a home that understands the breed, has a fully fenced and beagle proof section, and has a family committed to providing a positive learning environment, with lots of love, interaction, exercise and training.

The price for Lavender is negotiable. Of most importance is finding a loving and suitable home for this cute little girl.

Home found – Leo

Leo has found a wonderful new home in the far north, with lots of company, lots of space to run around and plenty of cuddles and friends of all varieties, though he’s not yet sure about the donkeys.

If you are interested in re-homing Leo, please call Terry Humphries on 021 274 9145, or email at adaptablesigns@xtra.co.nz.

Leo is a lovely Beagle currently with a foster family in North Auckland. He was surrendered by his owner as she was unable to stop him from constantly escaping from the property, so he needs new owners who are used to Beagles and who are fully prepared for Beagle escape artistry and have a Beagle-proofed property.

Leo is around 4 years old and was with his previous owner for a year.

He is a sweet and gentle natured Beagle who loves lots of cuddles and is very people focused.

Leo is slightly overweight and the pound have put him onto a diet to help with that. This will be continuing in his foster home where he is staying with two other Beagles who are also on diets. It’s a Beagle thing.

The pound have received some interest from the general public but they didn’t want Leo to fall into the same situation he has just come from. He needs someone who knows and understands the breed who is willing to take him on as part of their family.

Home Found – Sofie

The lovely Sofie now has a new home. Thank you everyone who applied to adopt her.

If you are interested in re-homing Sofie, please call Terry Humphries on 021 274 9145, or email at adaptablesigns@xtra.co.nz.

Name, age, sex and colour of your beagle Sofie, 5 ½ years, spayed female, tri-colour.
Name of the breeder Jan & Alex Newton
Character of your beagle Sofie has lived with us from birth so is good with people. Diane has previously done home based childcare & Sofie loved having the children around. She continues to need further socialisation but loves playing with other animals. If they don’t play with her she will eventually leave them alone.She can get over excited when someone comes to the door & will bark & may pee however we make her lie down & stay before we let anyone in & ask them not to acknowledge her immediately.She has always enjoyed a large outdoor area & will find a warm sunny spot to sleep in during the day.We know of no allergies or sensitivities.

She has always slept indoors in someone’s bedroom. Our daughter did let her sleep with her but in our bedroom we always had her in her bed & she was tied in or she would sneak onto someone’s dressing gown or spare pillow during the night.

She is toilet trained but does occasionally pee when submitting. More work for us to ensure it doesn’t happen & she hasn’t done this for some time.

Any training your beagle has had We had puppy training & applied this to Sofie.When requesting something she will normally lie down rather than sit but does sit as well.Has to lie down & wait for her dinner until we give her her command to eat.Has had a lot of training to do tricks for food rewards & loves doing them.

We walk her strictly with no toilet breaks or stopping to sniff.

Always ongoing work.

Additional Information Council registered & microchipped.Vaccinations, worm treatment and flea treatment are up to date.Last date of vet visit was in September prior to going into kennels for Labour Weekend.

Home found – Lilly Beagle

The owners have decided to keep their beloved beagle, good news for Lilly and we hope it all works out well for Lilly and her family.

We have decided as a family that it will be in the best interest of our little Beagle, Lilly, to put her up for adoption.

We love Lilly, but we underestimated the amount of time and attention that is required to be provided to a beagle.  Lilly, is a beautiful tri-coloured beagle that is easily loved.

She has been taken through the basic obedience training, but will in typical beagle fashion get distracted by a nice scent that passes her way.

Lilly is 13 months old and loves her walks and to play with the kids. She also loves riding in the car with the family.

Lilly will need a home where she can run freely outside and ideally have a playmate during the day.  She is not allowed to roam freely inside the house, and has not been house trained specifically, but in the time that she has been with us she has been very good at indicating when she needs to go out.

Lilly comes from Napier and has received all required Vet visits. Her next check-up visit is planned for June 2013.  She has not been neutered, but she has been micro chipped.
