Colorado Beagle Rescue has created the Shari Frausto Celebratory Memorial to honor Shari who died in 2013.  When Shari died, she remembered CBR in her will and named us as one of her beneficiaries.  We will be forever grateful to Shari for her generosity enabling us to continue our efforts to help unwanted beagles become healthy and whole and eventually find forever homes.  Rest in peace Shari--we are deeply saddened to lose your spirit and your loving heart.  We know that there is a very special place in Heaven for you.

If you wish to make a donation to Colorado Beagle Rescue in Shari's name, please know the money will go to help a beagle in need of medical attention.  Before rescue beagles go to their forever homes, vaccinations must be updated, spay/neuter surgeries must be done, dental evaluations, along with many surgical procedures and medicines the beagle must have.  By honoring Shari with your donation, you will also be making an impact on a beagle's life in giving it a second chance to have a good and happy life.

Thank You All Who Made The 2013 Picnic A Success!
Click here to see a gallery of pictures from this year's CBR Picnic!

Like most picnics it included good food, games for people and dogs, prizes for the games, a chance for people to socialize with other beagle lovers, a chance for beagles to socialize with other beagles, and opportunities to buy beagle items and toys.

It is possible to hold this picnic, because of all the organizations and people who donate supplies and their time.  Many thanks to all of the following organizations and people for their generous donations and help.  We can support these organizations in return by shopping at their store or eating at their restaurant. There are not enough ways to say thank you to those volunteers who always step up to help us with the picnic.  From setting up, taking care of the rescue trading post, doing the games, taking down, cleaning up and just always being there for CBR--we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

This is Twist, a rescue beagle adopted by the Bruse family in March of 2011. 

Here's what Jill Bruse has to say about her beagle boy! 
We took Twist to his first real agility competition a couple of weekends ago and here are the results:  Out of nine runs he won eight first place and one second place.  He earned a Games I title and a leg in Games II as well as two legs in Standard Beginner.

A bit of history on Twist--he came to Colorado Beagle Rescue on the CARE transport, a product of Missouri where he was left to fend for himself and picked up by a high kill shelter.  CBR was able to bring him to Colorado where Twist was in foster care with Kathy and Chris Pflazgraff until he was adopted by the Bruse family.  What a great dog that was adopted by a family who cared about him and gave him some positive training.  He now has such a wonderful life with his new family and CBR is so proud of him!

can you see his "angel spots"!?

2013 had some wonderful events in Freddie’s life!  His GREATEST Christmas present came three days after Christmas when he came home from the Animal Hospital with NO CAST OR BANDAGE!   All the fractures he received in his right, front leg have healed.  But alas, he had to remain in his cone for another week as he was chewing on the newly exposed limb.  The other great news we received is that to build up the muscles in the leg, he is allowed to have greater freedom and is not on one hundred percent crate rest due to the ever present pelvic fracture.  If you look closely at the pictures below, you can see how his right leg has atrophied, but YOU CAN SEE IT!   Fred is still restricted from major activities like long/steep stairs, energetic wrestling matches, or strenuous running, but he can now roam the house and yard at his leisure.  During the day Freddie now sleeps in dog beds outside his crate, on the couch, in foster dad’s lap.  He wanders the yard, off leash with supervision.  He still remains crated at bedtime for his night’s sleep.  He has endless access to the toy box, which he has learned to enjoy more and more.  He is doing great with the cat he lives with, choosing to walk after him slowly, snuffling all the way! 

His foster home is now also able to assess his behavioral strengths (and weaknesses!) in a more normalized environment.  Freddie needs a lot of socialization, re-direction from minor unacceptable behaviors and some basic training, but his greatest asset remains- His love for life and all people and animals around him with a wonderful joyful, energetic and playful disposition.

Look for more updates soon!  Very soon as at the end of January Freddie will receive an updated pelvic x-ray to assess the status of his pelvic fracture.

Freddie asleep on the couch!
