Home Found – Theo

Theo has been successfully re-homed. Thank you everyone who registered their interest in helping.  If you are still looking for a beagle to love, please keep in touch with Terry.

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

Theo is a 3 year old tricolour beagle. Theo came to live with us from the breeder in Waihi when he was 4 months old. While at the breeders he was there with his Dad.

We have recently had a new baby and we are finding that we do not have enough time to dedicate to Theo.

Theo has a lovely, friendly and gentle nature. He has been great around our young baby (5 months) and loves playing with older kids.

Theo’s ideal new home would be with a new owner who is home during the day. He would also love canine company. He needs a fully fenced/secure section to run around in. His new owner needs to be a strong leader.

Theo becomes upset when he is left at home alone for any period of time. He attempts to escape from his back yard and will whine/cry for the first period of time. When left alone he can become destructive.

He needs to be exercised regularly, he loves going for walks. Theo has been socialised with other dogs, and has been attending a doggie-day care on a weekly basis.

Theo sleeps inside the house, and has access to outside through a dog door. During the day Theo is quite happy to sleep in the sun or on his bed.

Theo was neutered when he was a young puppy and has been micro chipped.

Theo’s last vet visit was in February when he had his yearly check up. His vaccines, worming and flea treatment are all up to date.

Home Wanted – Ben

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

Ben was 6 last November (2013).  He is still entire but current owner is happy to get neutering performed if required.

He loves his walks and is very obedient on the lead.

If he does get out the gate because someone has let him out he comes back after piddling everywhere within a reasonable proximity.

Great with other dogs; could be a cat or rabbit killer – but this is unknown.

Absolutely great with any age group from baby through to more elderly.

Steals food left within his reach which is higher and wider than one would expect looking at his size.

Has never had any health issues except he is currently on a diet to lose the extra 8 kgs my daughter allowed him to put on.  He has lost about half of that.

Sleeps in a garage at night and is used to being on his own during the day for a few hours.

Absolutely loves going out in the car.

Registration will be transferred through the Kennel Club if the new owner wishes it and all his bits and pieces can be sent anywhere with him with freight costs covered by the current owner.

Home Wanted – Kale

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

Kale is a tan & white neutered male who is approximately 3 years old. He is registered and microchipped.

He is being re-homed because his current owner has a small daughter (3) and finds she has less and less time to give him the exercise he needs. She is also in a rental property with inadequate fencing and he often escapes. If he gets bored he digs holes.

Unfortunately in his first year he was mostly kept in a large cage by his first owner with infrequent exercise and attention. His current owner adopted him when he was around 1, and she has now had him for about 2 years.

Kale has done 6 months obedience training and has certificates. He just loved running and performing the exercises on the course laid out at dog obedience and would probably love to more of this.

He can shake hands, dance and do tricks.

He is socialised with other cats and dogs and is good with children.

His last vet appointment was in the last 6 months – vaccinations, flea treatment and worming all up to date.

Kale needs lots of attention and heaps of exercise and workouts.

Kale has a lovely, friendly nature and his ideal home would be one with fencing and supervision with an owner who preferably has beagle experience and time to spend with him.

Home Found – Coco

Coco has now been re-homed – thank you everyone who submitted applications.  If you are still keen to help some beagles find a new forever home, please consider Leo & Spud who are also looking for a home.

If you are interested in adopting Coco, please contact Terry Humphries on 021274 9145 or by email on adaptablesigns@xtra.co.nz.

Coco is our beautiful 3.5 year old female purebred tri-colour beagle (born 12 May 2010). She is spayed and comes with papers (I can’t find the papers at the moment, but the breeder is Maria Amon from Callisto Beagles – Thames.) She has been micro chipped, has recently had a vet check on 13/12/13 and had her vaccinations including kennel cough, has been wormed and de-flead.

Our reason for needing to rehome Coco is that since having our son 18 months ago, Coco has not been getting the attention she needs from us. Our toddler torments her and we can see this causes a lot of stress and anxiety for Coco (who is usually a very happy dog). To give Coco her own space away from our toddler we have been needing to put her in the backyard more often, thus causing behavioural issues and jealousy, including barking and howling when we’re inside without her, and jumping the fence when were home (we have very low fences but this is something she’s never done before!) 

Coco would be best suited to a house without cats or other furry animals (as she loves cats sooooo much she will chase them and smother them with licks which usually terrifies the cat) but would be really happy with another dog. She is very social, she loves other dogs and people, and everyone loves Her. She is very submissive when it comes to other dogs and has never been aggressive.

Coco can be let off the lead (within reason). We are able to let her off the lead at the local park and she will usually sniff around and stay nearby. But if she gets on a scent she will take off and usually won’t listen to you calling her back until she’s had enough of tracking.

Coco sleeps in a crate in the garage at night. She is really good at going to bed when she’s told, and usually stays quiet until we get her up in the morning.

She has had lots of training as a puppy, walks quite well on the lead but once again if she gets on a scent she will pull a bit and is quite strong.  She knows basic commands, sit, stay, wait, high five, roll over, get around. But only when she’s paying attention. And if food is involved she will do anything. Of course she is fully toilet trained. She has been trained not to jump onto the couch, but if you like snuggles of course she will oblige! Coco has always been an inside and outside dog. Spending her days outside when we’re working, spending the evenings inside with us.

Coco will come with her crate, kennel, all her bedding, food bowls and any food we have left. She has always been on a diet of Eukanuba light dry food, but loves left overs and treats every now and then.

 

Home Found – Geordie

Geordie has found his new home.  Thank you everyone who registered their interest in helping him.

Geordie needs a foster home urgently and long term needs a loving owner(s) who understands beagles and would be willing to put in the time and effort to train and nurture Geordie.

Please contact Terry Humphries on 021 274 9145

Here’s what Geordie’s current owners have told us: 

Dad passed away late last year so Geordie has been with my sister Lianna at the same property.

Geordie has been escaping daily as he receives no stimulation. I was able to receive some advice from animal trainer Mark Vette who suggested that he needs someone who is patient and understands beagles. He would be willing to talk to Geordie’s new owner over the phone to discuss approaches to training him.

The Ministry of Primary Industries trialed Geordie for their detector dog programme. Unfortunately, he wasn’t motivated by food enough!

  • He is around 3 & ½ years old.
  • Geordie is fine with other dogs.
  • Geordie is a very social dog and wants to be with his owner.
  • Geordie LOVES exercise such as walks but he is currently not exercised.
  • Geordie is registered, micro-chipped, neutered and up to date with all his vaccinations.

(Temp) Home Found- Jerry

Jerry has a temporary home.  If you are still looking to help a beagle, please check out our other lovelies who need a home.

If you can help look after Jerry until Feb next year, please get in touch with Terry Humphries on (021) 274 9145, or by email on adaptablesigns@xtra.co.nz.

From Jerry’s owners:

We are proud owners of a 7 and a half year old male Tricolor Beagle called Jerry.

We recently sold our house in Devonport and have bought property in Papamoa, Tauranga. Our plans are to move down there in February of next year.

We are looking for rental accommodation in Devonport for the next 4 months but cannot find somewhere that can take us and Jerry.

Unfortunately it is getting to the point where we are going to have to rehouse him, which we don’t want to do. What we also don’t want to do is to put him in a boarding kennel.

Does the Auckland Beagle Club know of anyone that can either have him for the four month period or permanently take him?  We prefer the temporary option as we want to take him with us to Papamoa.

Gorgeous Leo (almost 6) and Spud (8) are looking for a new home, their daughter Abby has been successfully re-homed, so just Mum & Dad needing a great new place to settle. Ideally we would like to find them a home together as they have always been together. They could go separately but would need canine company or someone who is around for a lot of the day.

  • All sit and wait for food
  • All good off leash in dog parks
  • Good with other animals (we have always had cats)
  • Good with children but have always been watchful as any owner would
  • Never had problem with biting but will give little growl when had enough
  • Mostly come when called
  • Always been inside dogs with dog door
  • All love cuddles. Spud and Abby like to hop on chair and cuddle at night with people
  • All like walks but also like to lay in sun, not hyperactive
  • All like company of people
  • Leo likes to be under a blanket at night
  • Spud loves belly rubs

Home Found – Kody

Kody has found a loving new home in Tauranga.  Thank you to everyone who was interested in adopting Kody.

If you are interested in adopting Kody, please contact our Adoption Coordinator Terry Humphries on 021 274 9145 or by email at adaptablesigns@xtra.co.nz

Here’s what Kody’s person has to say about him:
Kody will be 5 this September.  I have had him since he was a puppy, he’s a pedigree from Sarangrave Beagles.  He is the perfect, smoochiest most wonderful little guy and this is absolutely heart breaking for me.

He loves:

  • Stealing socks
  • Cuddles
  • Food
  • More cuddles
  • Drives in the car
  • Adventures in new places
  • Attempting to bury the socks he stole (even if its just to bury them in the couch)
  • Sleeping in the big bed
  • ‘Making’ the bed
  • Food
  • Cuddles
  • Blankets
  • Off leash runs at the beach and the park

He dislikes:

  • Running in the rain (he will walk annoyingly and shake often)
  • Baths
  • Not getting cuddles
  • Being woken up when it’s cold & getting made to go outside to go to the bathroom. (Can hardly blame him)
  • Getting his nails clipped. Actually, he doesn’t like it when you play with his paws

He is incredibly quiet. Has only howled a handful of times in play.  Only ever barks when playing or when the other dog we had would bark (she was very chatty and he would occasionally join in).

He’s sweet and gentle, but can get a little grouchy on rare occasions if you disrupt his comfort. We got our second dog (a large lab x) as a puppy when he was 3. He started getting a little protective over food after that, but only when she was around.

He loves kids (their faces are usually covered in food and they’re lower to the ground for him!).  He loved our cat.  He loves people at home, but if he’s out for a walk he’s not interested in them because there’s too many smells to be sniffed!

He is neutered, microchipped, registered, and all vaccinations are up to date.

No known health problems. The only issue we have is with his anal glands – they need expressing sometimes more than others.   (This is a beagle thing).

His weight is usually quite good.  The vet has always commented on his good health.

He’s really good off leash. We only do it at the beach & parks, but he doesn’t like to stray too far from me, and will almost always come when called… eventually. Still, pretty good for a beag.

He has had basic training. He will sit, stay, wait, lie down & ‘dance’ and certainly knows my tone if its a no. He’s very much a people dog, and a total Mumma’s boy.

He is really good at being alone. Incredibly low maintenance as long as he gets sufficient attention when you see him. But happily entertains himself all day long while you’re at work without barking at neighbours or destroying anything.

Totally house trained.

He’s always been an inside dog and will get whiny if you try to leave him outside for too long. He would be best suited in a house where he can be part of the family. I’ve always put a fence/pen around his bed at night to keep him in, otherwise he sneaks up to my bed. And he’s persistent!

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.
