    you will have to as he will never remind you that you should not feel guilty and share!

    Just saw this thread. Glad the little dude is feeling better!

    FWIW, the beagle I have now is by far the smartest dog I've ever owned. I've had mutts and dobermans also. She definitely follows her nose, and was a terrible pup but is now pretty obedient and stays within our invisible fence. Had her grandpa too and he was the sweetest dog ever. He was more stubborn though. Also had one growing up and he was a sweet dog but wandered a LOT. I don't think they're for everyone, but they're fun, lovable, loyal dogs and get along great with other dogs. Mine have all been submissive in that regard. The one I have now is absolutely freaking hilarious, she has such a personality. She's my baby girl!

    Good luck with him!

    But when the beagle half comes out he is definitely "a nose with legs". DH and I joke that when the nose turns on, his brain falls out of his ear and he forgets what planet he's on, does not know his name, etc.
    2 high energy breeds mixed--sounds active, my dog I think is beagle/sheperd he really has a split personality lol. He wants to stay & protect the flock (kids) but he sees a rabbit & , so its kinda like manic & depresseve.

    Good luck with your beagle pup OP

    I have always wanted a beagle. Lovely dogs, but yes a little stubborn and prone to following their noses.

    Hope your guy pulls through.

    To anyone who thinks beagles can't be trained, do a search for Purin the Superbeagle.

    Default Beagles

    . I was owned by two beagles for 13 1/2 years. They were not dumb...they were beagles...all hound. I had to learn what that meant and when I did, I didn't try and change it. They are what they are.
    Both of mine went to obedience and did quite well. Yes, they ocassionally got loose and nose went to the ground. Peanut, my female would jog down the street, look at you and give you the doggie finger rather than come but neither ever got in trouble on their adventures. As they got older, they actually started minding better. They were sociable, happy, appropriately active for a house dog and perfect loves. When I lost Peanut and Turbo...10 weeks apart no less, I did not replace them as I am not home enough to be fair to a dog (or dogs). I will get another when I retire and am not gone as much as I am now.

    I hope your little guy comes out of his shell. Sounds like you are on the right track.

    How is Pupster today? I love the latest photo of him - he sure loves that bed.

    Tail broken at the base? I cannot imagine how much that has to hurt. Will it heal on its own?

    Just an item of interest: Beagles were the most popular US dogs in the 1950's

    Update today is that he is slowly coming out of his shell. And he's definitely not housebroken!

    As for his tail, I guess it needs to heal on its own or my friend would have done whatever needed to be done. She did call me yesterday and say that amazingly his fecal was negative. However he does have Lyme and Anaplasma so we'll be starting him on doxycycline in a couple of days. She doesn't want to wait too long to treat, but also wants to build him up a bit before starting the doxy.

    I'm sorry for less frequent updates (and no updates on the facebook page), one of my kids is pretty sick and I'm focussing almost entirely on that.

    Aw - I love your recent updates! Esp. the picture of him sharing the bed with your cat. ***Hint to CoTH people who might want a cat-friendly dog!
    So he's making barn visits (leashed of course) with you now, I see. Really rooting for him to beat the Lyme and anaplasmosis and find a happy Beagle-y home (that is, if you haven't decided to keep him).

    Has your son recovered from the appendectomy?

    I can't forget this adorable pup and keep checking the OP's facebook page for updates.

    He is REALLY looking so much better, out and about in the barn in his coat, greeting the horses (he seems quite unfazed by anything), and napping in the sun.

    Have you decided to keep him?

    I thought I'd update the thread. He's happy, healthy, and was too much Beagle for me so he is one lucky beagle and landed in the perfect home for him: my parents'. He never roamed, which is pretty remarkable, but I just did not have a ton of time to devote to him and I never got him housebroken. Plus, he was a hooligan, always trying to get into everything (especially of course food). (He has amazing jumping ability, able to spring 4' off the ground from a standstill.)

    My parents, who lost their Bichon Frise, a year ago, on the other hand are retired and LOVE having a creature to care for . . . and that beagle never once had an accident in my parents' house! It is win-win -- my parents are happy for his company and are more active, and he gets lots of attention. They appreciate just how sweet and gentle he is, and are very proud of him.

    He is a lucky beagle because I was not going to pass him on to just anyone as I felt he was terrible "pet" material and didn't want someone else to dump him when they got fed up.

    So -- alls well that ends well.

    Nope, my Mom renamed him "Rafiq" which means "friend" in Arabic, because he is so friendly to everyone he meets. :-)
