Sunshine Acres Beagles
Occasionaly we have available adult beagles looking for good pet homes! After a few litters we like to find good pet homes for our adult dogs so they can be the center of someone's world. We would love to see our retiring adults in a great pet home for some one-on-one attention and companionship.
We also sometimes have beagles that we have rescued that are looking for recoop with someone special.. as well as beagle pets we are placing for a customer who could not keep a dog (moving ect.) and needs to find a nice new home for their pet to move into!
Past Retiring Sunshine Acres Beagle.
Sometimes folks ask us if we think a beagle who wasn't raised with cats would be able to get along with their family cat. Our sweetheart went to a family with 5 of them and they're all equally spoiled!
"Hello Sunshine Acres Beagles!! Just a little note to let you know what a great love my Sally is also puppy Ruth known as Morgan at Sunshine Acres. Such sweethearts!! I adopted Sally in May 2008. What a blessing she was to me. Exactly 1 week later I broke my ankle & Leg fell down by front brick steps!!! Sally was with me thru out it she keep me alert so I would not pass out.Believe me I wanted to!!!! So.. we bonded very quickly even though she was an adult dog. I was amazed at her. How careful she was around me and the crutches, also I had to stay downstairs due to my bedroom is upstairs,she was right by my side or leg constantly!! Talk about a therapy dog she certainly earned her DEGREE!!! I let Christina know what a good thing I adopted an adult instead of a puppy! 4 months in a cast and new dog ,but not any dog A SUNSHINE BEAGLE!!!!!Now that little Ruth (Morgan) is in our family ,Sally is happy playing Mom & getting ALOT of exercise!!

Currently Available Adults
Maisy is retiring after raising this litter for us
we have had two families with her pups ask to adopt her in years past so we plan to check with them about if now would work to add her to their home before new
inquiries are considered.
There are also some Re-homing beagle pets in other areas that their owners aren't able to keep looking for new homes
If you or you and your family have a good home life to offer a retired dog please email us and say that in the subject line so we go right to your email !
One thing that families like about older puppies and adults is
that they have gotten past the teething and biting stages that
must be dealt with in puppyhood.
"older dogs have had more fun ", someone told me, "and smile more ..."
see for yourself a wagging tail smiles and smiles at you, when you get home from work...
a dog who already loves to get under the covers with you is priceless !
please dont just write to ask if we still have a dog..... please don't make us ask for the homelife details- send those with your inquiry please ! Emails that don't include any home details for us to identify with are often skipped over in favor of emails that have shown us they are serious about finding a match.
we look to see if folks are responsible to follow our directions when considering quality homes for an adult dog to fit in to, so we know they will be taken care of and in a good situation for the rest of their life with you.. thanks !
If you feel you may have a good home to offer an adult dog, please tell us about your home, we like to see adults go to homes with a fenced yard, as they were not trained since puppy hood to live only in your house the way adopting your very own young puppy would of course be trained by you in your home, and learning your routines from day one.
Any new dog should be taken out often in order to learn your routine, what door to go to, and where you want them to go. We have acreage wooded property and accessible by doggy door, so we prefer homes with fenced yards over other options for our spoiled beagles to enjoy.
Please let us know Where a dog will be sleeping there, and if you have fencing or will be walking them on a leash etc. thanks !!
|Recently Adopted Adults!|
We've decided to retire several dogs so that the kids can keep some favorites we've fallen for from our current litters that we feel will enhance our bloodline.
We just want to see good pet matches for each of these adoptable adults.
Shelly Khaki Mini Female is spoken for by Nancy !!
Hello Sunshine Acres,
I have been looking at your website, page by page for a couple of weeks now, I happened upon your adult dogs today and would be interested in learning more.
I would prefer a mini or a nano-mini adult. I have hip and lower back issues and need to be able to carry my new baby if needed. Color doesn't really concern me and neither does gender.
I am single, 60 year old nurse working in a business office enviornment. I have 10 grandchildren that I am around frequently and consider my pet part of the family who would spend time with not just me and Stella (my 9 year old cat). but the family, as well, on the weekends and vacations. Stella runs the house as she pleases, is very laid back, she likes to snuggle for short times then is off to do her own thing. She sleeps in bed with me (when she is so inclined) and Iwould plan that our new addition would do the same. Two short walks is what I could do right now, but play time in the house for exercise is mandatory when mom gets home from work. It's a great stress reliever for all ! There is a hotel in Ocean City, MD that I frequent year round and they do accept small pets and would want my little one to be able to go with me and frequent the beach for some playing with the waves on the shore or just hanging out reading on a cool fall day on the beach. I had a puggle in the past but the beagle part of him could not resist doing whatever it took to get off the leash and chase whatever little animals he saw. Otherwise, he was the perfect buddy, so I was able to rehome him with a good friend and I see him regularly.
I have a small yard (thus I would prefer a laid back friend, who is happy to go out do his buiness and come back in to be with Stella and me. I also have a covered porch and would consider potty training to a "potty patch"
I am retiring in 2 years and would look forward to growing old with a new member of my family. I have no time frame and would probably drive down if we were able to work something out.
If you would consider me, I would be honored to adopt a retired dog. We would be in the same stage of life and could enjoy our golden years takiing long rides, cuddlying, visiting the ocean and spending time with family.
Your time is much appreciated !
She is very sweet and loves loving! She is a khaki mini female and is already fixed and is $390
we have promissed darling Shelly to a lady who already plans to spoil her and enjoy having her join her home for lots of cuddling and nice walks on the beach !!
Wow, Miss C you are a wonder. So glad Shelly and baby are doing well ! Thanks for the update ! I was thinking that perhaps I could get Shelly a toy or blanket to keep around my house for awhile before she moves in and send it to her a few weeks before her move so she at least has an idea of who we are. What do you think?
I was also wondering about her height, weight and eye color. You know a girl has to have properly fitted and coordinated accesories :) Can we all spell P-A-M-P-E-R !
Peace and Blessings,
Shelly flew home to Nancy!
" I was finally able to meet Shelly at about 1 am. She was, of course, a bit timid and not sure of herself at all. When we got home and I was able to hold her and walk her for a bit, her tail started wagging and all has been well since. She is sleeping in my room in her crate for security. After Stella introduced herself and walked away uncareingly Shelly and I snuggled up on the couch to wind down. I massaged her shoulders, we watched TV and soon she was snoring !!
Thank you so very much for my darlin' little girl, I know we are going to be the best of friends.
Peace and Blessings,
Marley has been adopted!
" Marley" $95.
after a few small litters we have decided to let her find a great pet home now !
Marley's last litter had only two pups ..
Mia on the side above is from her last litter.. and has just been adopted and is flying home to her new family in Texas soon !
So now we've decided to let Marley find her forever family too , ask for her in your subject line if you have a place for this sweet girl.
she has an adorable sleve up her leg... with one white paw !
she also has a neat marking on her back ..
she's a nice smaller sized tri color female beagle as you can compare her height to the couch in the above picture ..
After adjusting to her new home and family, Marley is fitting in as the friendly calm dog they had hoped to find!
Tootsie is a mini chocolate female who has been fixed and is looking for a good home to go to . $95.
she found a perfect fit , her new family has a jack russell terrier , the two are getting along well they tell us , and that mini Tootsie is actually smaller than the jack russell !! Thanks to all of those folks who have written to ask about adoption of tootsie... keep watching for other retiring and rescued beagles as we look for good homes for them as well !
she was so sweet ... another mom didnt have experience or milk so she took her babies to raise and did a wonderful job with them for us before we retired her !
"Bailey" , a small tricolor Female was adopted!
Bailey is a happy go lucky girl who is sweet and curious and would make a good buddy !
adopted now :)
" Abbey " found a perfect homelife !
her favorite thing was coming in with the family, $175
she would run loose in the yard here on our acreage property , WITHOUT RUNNING into the woods .
Here she is with
MINI SIZED KHAKI MINI MOM KIKI IN FRONT, SUNNY A MEDIUM SIZED STANDARD ORANGE AND WHITE GAL , AND available adult ,
" Abbey " a STANDARD SIZED TRI COLOR FEMALE .
she was housebroken and loved being indoors hanging out , she was also crate trained too !!
she was one of the beagles we raise here who was allowed to be loose in our driveway and front yard area to show that our dogs arent driven to hunt like most beagle lines in the South are, Her dad and his bloodline started our beagle lines from the Seattle Washington area we began with. She has nice longer legs so she will keep up with your walks if someone wants to go out for exercise ... I heard the other day single people like adult trained pets they can adopt since they can go walk and meet other folks outdoors right away ! It gives them an excuse for venturing outside and they become more fit and find a friend or two this way so its a win win situation the dog likes it too !
she was adopted recently !
Abbey in her new home with friends :) !!
( we hope folks realize we sometimes wake up to crank up the computer and cant get online ...
there are days when its rough here in the country getting service, so when we can, there can be lots and lots of emails to go thru....
which ones would you open first ??
the ones with a subject line that catches your eye since its something youd love to see happen !!
so please put a name of a dog, or puppy, or "ready to adopt ...... ", etc. emails we get with no subject can sometimes be skipped over
I fear they may be spam or junk mail i dont want to open so I dont !
there are tons of other folks who have written us asking to become preapproved and sending the details upfront we look for to do it !
those diligent folks who did their homework and now ask to be prospective parents of one of our babies will hear back that day! )
"Daisy" found a great home !!
she hangs out on our deck, and out loose in the front yard at times...or is invisible fence trained so she could easily be taught a new boundary in someones yard to stay in..
she loves toys more than any of our doggies !! very playful and sweet she would be a great family pet . ( big standard size female)
her main goal is to be inside the home with the gang ... she can be let loose in our big yard without wandering off to the wooded acreage all around us .
Daisy has gone home with the Grant family! They were looking for a new friend for the fam and for "Charlie" their tricolor Sunshine Acres Beagle son of "Bonnie"!
( Punkin has found a great family life now )
she loved laying out in the moveable pen with her babies as they weaned off her milk
Punkin was already Invisible fence trained for someone with that system
she was also one of our most playful moms but not quite as busy finding toys and treats as Daisy doggie above. !!
she is a nice dog who has had some great litters for us ... we like to see our moms retire into wonderful pet homes that appropriately fit them ... each is different, and so are the homes being offered for an adult dog, so we consider all the details and try to match them to the best fit for that beagle.
she also loved rawhides like daisy does....
they could entertain themselves on end with a rawhide or chew toy...
much more than say Grace... who never chews them... ? ( true of some khaki's ) Grace does adore Greenies though... and freeze dried chicken and meat snacks that are good for you...LOL .. well all she cares about is the "Chicken" ... in them...
dogs can be as different as people are , some are playful and higher energy level , others are able to run out and go hurry up and come right back inside .. the more we know about the home you have for a beagle the better we can work on finding a great companion to enjoy who can fit in well.
woo hoo- you guys look what one of the families adopting my puppies sent me in their care package !!! check this bad boy out !! YUM !!!!!
she went to a family who wanted an adult dog but didnt want to go to the pound where you just dont know what your getting.. she fit right in and they took her home to enjoy !
