Once you have had a wonderful dog, a life without one, is a life diminished.

Miss Maribelle,


Hello all! I would like to introduce myself.  My name is Maribelle and I am 5-7 years old and I am on the tinier side like 20lbs.  I have just recently had my last litter of puppies and now I am wanting to enjoy the rest of my life the way a beagle should….With a nice loving home and family!   I am very calm and gentle!  I am housebroken, and the good news is I do not need to be kenneled!!  I am so good my foster family let me roam around the house while they are at work!  I usually just lay in the same spot they left me in!  I do get along well with the fur foster siblings in my foster home, but in all honesty, I would prefer to live in a more quiet home where I can be the center of attention!  After all, I am deserving!!


Maribelle is current on vaccinations,  HW negative, and micro chipped.
