We just rescued a stray Beagle in our neighborhood. Turns out she was chipped through Houston Beagle Rescue and the owners have lost her several times and never follow up on her disappearances. The rescue center is full and my husband and kids fell in love with her, so we've added a new member to the family.
She seems to have been raped (sodomized actually) repeatedly and also has very dry skin and losing patches of hair. We have a vet appt on Friday, but I love this site so much, I figured I would ask some advice questions now. Any "must-knows" about this breed?

We had a beagle, and are in the process of trying to adopt another. They shed ALL year, but are the most loyal, lovable pet ever! The beagle we had only barked when he wanted to come back in, or a stranger was cutting through our yard, at the door, or any other animal cutting through our yard.
They have a howl too with the bark. They have different barks, and you will know what they mean. They are hounds, and will run off if they get a scent of something. Have a fenced yard, or a zip line. Not a dog to be left for hours. They will get into anything.
