We are a small 100% Volunteer run rescue located in Chesapeake, VA. We focus on small scale but quality adoptions. We generally only have 1 or 2 dogs at a time which allows our volunteers to get to know each dog. Our goal is to find the perfect match for each family. We offer a trial period to all of our adoptions. To get started check out our adoption process and policies by clicking here.

Adopt Meadows Puppies

BTTR is accepting open applications for Meadow’s puppies from Friday, October 30th until midnight on Friday, November 6th.

We are Meadow’s puppies! There are 7 of us, 5 girls and 2 boys. Our mom is a 20lb beagle but we don’t know our dad. Our mom gave birth under a lawnmower in Essex County and we were rescue by BTTR when we were about 10 days old. We are beagle mixes, some of us have short and some have long hair. We may grow to be between 20-55lbs it is hard to say at this age. We are young puppies! We are not housebroken or leash trained, we will chew, nip, jump up, scratch, pee on your carpet, and play with anything we can find. We will need to be taught house manners, how to walk on a leash, basic obedience classes, and receive puppy socialization.

Looking for Dogs List

Since BTTR only has a few dogs at a time you can join our Looking for Dogs list by filling out a Pet Match Form or our full Adoption Application. Many of our dogs get adopted off this list before making it to our website.
