~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Finally Beagles get their due!
Now my concern is that many will view this dog as cute and adorable and will want one for their own. Don't get me wrong, I know they're cute and adorable but they are way more than that. If you seriously want to own a beagle, please educate yourself about the breed , Beagles. Abigail is my second Beagle and love the breed. The beagles are high energy dogs, and need constant guidance. There are many books out in the public to learn about this special breed or any other breeds for that matter. While considering od getting a beagle, please consider adopting on from many many "Beagle" rescue organzations. They are many beagles and other pure breds who already need a home. I have never regretted in adopting my beagles. I am doing my part one beagle at a time. I adopted our beagle named Quiggly from Seattle Beagle Rescue. Quiggly has gone onto Beagle Heaven. We got Abigail from Alcovy Pet Rescue. Both beagles are special in their own right!
All I ask is that, if you are thinking about getting a beagle, please consider the above and be honest... can you devote constant guidance and care to this dog, or any other kinds?
Here is a wonderful link to help you with somethings to consider about beagles.
