I've been adopted!

Gender: Male

Age: 2ish

Gilbert, Gilbert, Gilbert!!  Ladies and gentlemen, watch your hearts because he will steal them at first sight!!   This is such a sweet boy.  He loves just about everything except for cats.  Cats are his only flaw.  He is so well tempered and mannered.  He sits for you to give him breakfast, treats, and dinner and then thanks you by giving you kisses.  He is a runner so if you like to go for jogs and need a running partner he is for you.  He has been with us for 3 days and has not barked once.  He knows commands sit, stay, and down.  We are trying to work on shake, but he prefers to give you loving instead.  He is housetrained and is crate-trained.  He can stay in his crate for at least 8 hours without any issues.  He also loves to sleep in his crate so if you just leave the door open he will take his naps there and put himself to bed at night.  He is a young boy so he does love to play, but does not chew anything that he is not supposed to. Trust me you will fall in love with him as soon as you meet him.

Gilbert was a stray from a Maryland shelter so we don't know a lot about him yet. We do know that he likes people & dogs. He rides quietly in a car while keeping his crate clean.

He's a kisser!

Photos are coming soon.

    My husband and I think Gilbert is absolutely adorable! We’re curious about his health or any known defects. Also, he appears to be taller than your average beagle, is he a mix? And if so, do you know what he’s mixed with?

      Ms. Jefferis,

      Gilbert has received a clean bill of health from our veterinarian. He has no “defects” that we know of – although if you have specific issues you’d like to ask about, please email me at And we get many different sized beagles – and Gilbert is a tall beagle. We don’t think he’s a mix – but we cannot guarantee the parentage of any beagle. If you’d like to be considered for him – please submit an adoption application, also from this website. Thanks!

    How much is gilbert selling for?

    • Laura


      We don’t “sell” dogs. All of our beagles are available for adoption. You can submit an adoption application via our website and then go through the adoption process. The adoption fee is $200 which covers all shots, spay or neuter, microchip, etc. I recommend that you read our Standards for Adoption prior to applying.

      Thanks for visiting our site!
