I had a male beagle from a pet store for 13 years until he died of cancer. I also saved a 5 month old beagle mix from a bad home a year later. She lived for 12 years (even though she had many problems such as hypothyroidism and then later in life she developed diabetes and blindness). They were wonderful dogs and were very close to each other. They were very good with my boys. The problems that I had were the peeing especially when I would go out. I had to crate them everytime I would go out. They also dig up your yard horribly! A fence is a necessity, though you must chip them because they will dig under the fence and get out. Beagles are very cute, affectionate, and funny. They can be mischievous, and they act like they are starving all of the time. They cannot get enough food, and will even dig in garbage to get some! I recently adopted a beagle/shepard mix from the shelter. She is almost a year old and she is incredible with my 15 year old Autistic son and especially with my almost 2 year old Down Syndrome son. At times, he has gone up and smacked her, and she just rolls on her back and lets him, then licks his face to say it's ok and she understands. People considering this breed should be patient people who love animals. Beagles can be trained, but they kindly resist for a while. Beagles want to be a big part of a family, so you should be home a lot and include them in outings. A chest leash is important because a neck leash will choke them as they pull with their nose to the ground. Remember to check and clean their ears often, and when their ears get wet, dry them inside and out thoroughly.
Overall, a beagle is a great choice with the right owner and family.

My 4 year old yellow lab is constantly itching herself is there any thing I can use to help her control or stop this? I don't want her to be scrathching all the time.

    Try the basics first.  Switch foods in case she is allergic.  Think about dog collars (do you have a pest control collar on her) and would she be allergic to that.  Do you spray her with anything - what do you bathe her with.  Think about anything that she can be around that is making her itch and change that.  Did you recently change her shampoo for instanse?  For some relief with itchy skin - for no reason I ever found out, I was told to use AVON Skin So Soft - I would bathe my dog and then use the AVON Skin So Soft and it did stop the itching - or at least she stopped scratching.

Adopted a 9 week old female Chion on Saturday.... she has quickly caught on to going to the bathroom outside. She takes a 2 hour nap after she eats and wakes up ready to go potty outside. She refuses to use the potty pads inside the house. I am teaching her to sit. She is doing good with it but she can't follow commands when there are a lot of people around due to her excitement.

    So cool that she's so well potty trained. I've never had a small dog, but from what I understand, some can be rather challenging to train for that. All in all, she sounds like a super pet and a lot of fun.

I grew up with two beagles and absolutely loved them. Of course I am biased, but I think they are the most adorable dogs. I found them to be great playmates and would recommend them as a family pet.

Thanks for this advice. It seems this advice is common. My only worry is can i feed my Visla Puppy oily fish as a family member has a German Pointer and swears by it.

I want to know if the Snow Shepherd and White German Shepherd is the same breed?

    Yes, they are the same breed and frequently called a white snow german shepherd.  It is a reference to the color - not the breed. Actually white was one of the orignal colors of the breed.  They are gorgeous.

Lilly is still a very active and smart chichi. I think that she thinks that we are her pets. LOL She loves people, but hates dogs. Her first pet cat has since passed away and her Lovebird, but she now plays with her Siamese Angora cat named Summer Sugar. Lilly barks at her when I scold the cat, and is like her older sister. She loves to try and catch Anoles and barks at squirrels and birds. Loves her toys, small and big. Even plays hide and go seek. Great little dog, big heart.

    A neighbour of mine had a collie also and she used to love to play fetch with sticks. You just had to pick up a stick for her to get ready to aim! She was a real peoples dog and never bothered with other dogs. She had blue eyes.

Is the puppy still available, and why are you looking for a new home?
