beagle owners?! eta

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Are they good pets? I've wanted a dog forever and I am going to look at beagle puppies tomorrow

Holy crap I got a lot of responses quick when I bumped that lol and thank you. The pups we are going to look at have been with young kids and 5 full grown dogs from day 0. They are already used to being on the leash. I hear dogs bark day and night aa both my neighbors dogs bark at every single thing. The running off part does concern me as we don't have a fenced in yard but I didn't intend to take him out without a leash as our leash laws are pretty strict.

You have to bathe beagles often. We had one when I was little, and my brother and I had to give her a bath every week because of the oil build-up on their skin makes them stink.

Honestly, I'd go to your local shelter, because mostly they can tell you what the dog's temprament is, and have put them through extensive tests to make sure they're family friendly.

Their rep for being good family dogs is what attracted me to them. Dd has some social and language delays and she is an only child, plus I've wanted a dog forever and finally moved where we could have one last year. I just wanted to make sure dd would be mature enough to not accidentally hurt a puppy. She's great with our cats so I'm hopeful

I am sure she will be fine. My youngest is pretty rough but our pup handled her well. We have had our pup since she was 9 weeks old and she never got hurt by any of the kids.
