Caramel is a sweet 11-year-old Beagle girl whose owner moved away and left her behind. She is so easygoing and very obedient. She likes to just hang out, take naps and sniff around the yard. Caramel gets along well with other dogs and children. Since she is a bit overweight she would benefit from more exercise and less food. Dieting is hard and Caramel is hungry so if there is more than one dog in the home it would be best to feed her separately.
Paisley is a sweet 2-year-old female Beagle. She loves to be around people, but other dogs just terrify her. She was attacked by another dog so it will take patience, love and some professional training for her to feel comfortable around other dogs. Until then, Paisley will do great being an only dog in the household. She is housebroken and rarely barks. She does need to be kept on a leash because, like most Beagles, she will take off to follow a scent. Her coat is very soft and she lets everyone hold and pet her.

Buddy D’Elf is an 11-year-old Beagle, who acts and plays like he’s 7. He came down from a land northeast of Phoenix to look for his new forever home. He can go from being a very active Beagle to being a couch potato who likes to snuggle. He loves to go for walks, but has to take his time so he can check out the great smells out in the world. He likes to ride like a person in the backseat of the car and occasionally likes to get up and take a look out the window. He gets along great with other dogs, too.

Jenny is a female Labrador retriever, about 5 years old. She was found on Interstate 10 out and about on her own. Thankfully a volunteer of Friends for Life Animal Rescue saw her and was able to rescue her. The rescue group had no luck finding her family so now she is up for adoption. She is an energetic girl and would do great with an active family. Volunteers are learning more about Jenny every day. Jenny resides at the adoption center in downtown Gilbert. She’s been spayed, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped.
Perkins is an 8-year-old Beagle who was lost and taken in by the Arizona Beagle Rescue last summer. He is much taller than a typical Beagle and will play ball with you, but prefers tug-of-war. He likes walks as well, but pulls quite a bit because he gets so excited to go out, but he settles down after walking a bit. Car rides are one of Perkins’ favorite things.

He would love to cuddle up with you for a nap on the couch or sleep in your bed with you at night, but he also is really good about sleeping in his own bed. Maverick loves to play with toys and will even play fetch. He likes to go for walks and for rides in the car. He would prefer a quieter home with either no children or older kids. Maverick is so well-behaved that his foster mom gives him free-roam of the house when she goes to work. He knows how to use a doggie door and never has accidents in the house.
