ADOPTING AN EX-LAB ANIMAL
The purpose of Beagle Freedom Australia is to find the perfect forever home for all the animals in our care. To achieve this, it is necessary to have a set of procedures and policies in place to ensure that the dogs welfare is always the number one priority. Every individual is different and so every case has to be individually assessed. Beagles are not for everyone, so we encourage anyone who is considering adopting a beagle to read up on the breed first and to be sure that a beagle is the right fit for what they are looking for in a family pet.
A Beagle Freedom representative will assess and reply to your application via email, a phone interview and meeting will be arranged if all goes well.
We bring the beagle to your home to meet your family and pets and to check the suitability of the fencing.
If all goes well, we leave the beagle with you on a trial period. If the trial goes well and everyone is happy – in particular, the animals, then we process the paperwork and transfer ownership to you.
Each case is individual, variations may need to be made, but the process must be followed and the heath and well being of the dogs should always be the number one priority. Beagle Freedom Australia should be contacted immediately if there is any issues, BFA remain the legal guardian of all animals until the adoption is finalised. BFA will answer any questions or concerns that the applicant may have and if at any time during the trial period the arrangement is not working, a mutually agreeable time and place will be arrange to return him/her back into foster care. Follow up contact is maintained with each family after the adoption is finalised, support and professional trainers are also available if needed. We encourage our families to stay in touch via email and social networks, we LOVE hearing all the happy ever after stories, its why we do what we do.
Below are the beagles or other animals in our care that are ready to take the next step in their journey and join a forever family, or a foster family. Those listed are all ex-lab animals, we do have many other beagles and hounds for adoption as well, just as deserving as these ones, some form puppy farms or abusive backgrounds, some from private surrenders or dumped at pounds and shelters.

Please note that the majority of our animals available for foster and adoption are not posted here, so please apply to foster or adopt in general.
DOB: Approx 13/03/2008
Coconut was born into medical testing and then rehomed by the same organisation at an early age. The family that took her were unprepared and unable to care for her and meet her basic needs. They eventually did the right thing surrendered her to us. By then she was 9 years old and had been kept mainly in the backyard and garage. She had an awful skin condition which we have since gotten under control, but she will still need ongoing management for life. She was covered in lumps and bumps which we have now removed, they have all been checked and cleared of anything nasty. Coconut was shy but desperate for attention and human interaction at first, she has now settled into her new life and loves to go for walks, cuddle on the couch and loves her food! She would suit a home where she was the only dog so that she can catch up on all the attention she missed out on over the years she was ignored. She also gets long with other beagles well, could live happily with a male, but not a female. And as for other breeds, she doesn’t quite speak their language! Coconut is house trained and crate trained, she MUST be an inside dog and sleep and spend her time with her family. If you think that you could meet all of coconut’s needs please fill out our form and we will be in touch.
