ROCKY needs a new home – JHB




*NOTE:* beagles are high maintenance dogs. They need constant attention and lots of exercise and mental stimulation. Training is essential for puppies! They are easily bored, and WILL bark and howl and disturb your neighbours. They WILL dig up your garden and chew your plants/shoes/kreepy-krawly/clothes/sprinkler system/everything they see ESPECIALLY if they are bored. PLEASE remember these factors when purchasing a puppy!! Beagles are pack animals and NEED to be part of your family. A beagle living outside, alone is a recipe for disaster.*

Please so some reading and research into the breed if you have not had a beagle before.Dog Breed Info has some valuable info as well as Wikipedia. You may find some interesting info on Burke’s Backyard too. **


Beagle’s Name:  Rocky

Age/Date of Birth : 26 February 2010

SEX : Male

Is s/he registered? No

Is s/he sterilised? Yes

Is s/he microchipped? Yes


Is s/he friendly with:

Dogs: Yes

Cats: No

Children: Older children yes, not very young children


Area: Weltevreden Park

Reason for rehoming: Rocky is a nervous animal and is not adapting well to a toddler in the home.

Contact person (email & tel): Brian McLean

Any additional costs: None


Other: We have had him for over 2 years but he is very nervous and is unfortunately not adapting well to our toddler. He has already been re-homed twice and now really needs a home to settle down in. It would be better for him to have a home with other dogs and older children that are willing to give him generous TLC.

    Good morning, I would certainly be interested BUT would first need to get permission from my landlord & lady. As soon as you can let me know whether you would consider me, I can contact them with my request and should hopefully have an answer before the weekend.
    I am working from home & have a big yard.
    Have had the most amazing Beagle Josh whom I rescued years ago from a certain death at the age of 3.
    Please advise what would be required e.g. references, interview etc.
    Looking forward to hearing from you soonest.
    Kind Regards
