I adopted a 2 year old beagle from the county animal shelter, she was one of three beagles there at the time. That is a warning to all beagle owners or those interested in the breed. They are runners. Beyond that...what I found is the sweetest dog you could ever ask for. She's very good with my kids and is always two steps behind me. I highly recommend a beagle to anybody looking for a family dog. You'd be missing out if you looked else where. Just invest in a fence.

My son had a beagle and it cam from a poodle family, which was weird. So it would hurt a lot of people, so we sold it.

One should also check for hernia. My son had a beautiful little Beagle and the family loved her dearly. She began showing some indications of severe pain in her little belly and when the vet checked her, she had a hernia that was very aggressive. It had to be removed; then, it grew back. The poor little thing had to be put down as hers was the type of hernia that would come back over and over and wrap around her intestine. According to the people that sold the dog to my son, this was not something that was known to be on either side of her parents.
