Of course we're not really selling bagels! The short story that relates to this title is as such: one of the alumni (and original hounds) at Homewoods is actually a beagle/basset mix, who was affectionately dubbed "a bagel" -- not quite a beagle, not quite a basset. These guys and dolls are for the most part purebreds with their being a couple comical mixes and certain members of the Homewoods crew took to referring to all beagles as bagels. And since a bagel shop stirs senses of warmth and satisfaction - mmmmmm, coffee and muffins! - we thought it appropriate to name this page accordingly, as beagles do the same!
The second half of this story is that there are an unbelievable number of homeless beagles who are simply discarded roadside after hunting season, especially in this region, because they won't hunt or are gun-shy, and the number of them at this rescue is just more sad evidence of this. Won't you consider adopting one of these furry bagels? They'll warm your heart!

Introducing (drumroll, please. . . .)
BARNIE and BEA are cute, little bagel bites. They are on the smaller side, weighing about 22 pounds. Both appear to be house trained, but will require a refresher course as they are currently kenneled outside.This would be easily accomplished as their preference is to do "it" outside.They both love to chew on all sorts of dog toys including Nylabones, Kongs,and stuffed toys. When we go for walks, they are well-mannered and do not strain on the leash.They appear to be brother and sister and are around 4-5 years of age.They are calm, loving siblings.
