I had a Beagle mix growing up. She was a wonderful mellow dog. Very willing to please. Not every Beagle is wild. My dog was mixed with Cocker Spaniel so she didn't bay. I have a 3/4 Bloodhound now. I would never let him off leash, but he listens very well for a Bloodhound. We invested a lot of time training him. Spend time with the dog, if you can, before you make up your mind.

A dog wags his tail with his heart.

May I always be the kind of person that my dog thinks I am.

I haven't had a beagle myself, but I had a hound mix and she loved nothing more than to try and find new scents to track no matter where they went. It can be dangerous for them and possible traffic as well.

Thank you very much. I heard that indeed they should be kept on a leash. It would be hard for me to find a fenced area where they can run (outside of my garden but that doesn't offer them much space to really run). I live near the woods... I would love to walk a dog in the woods but it would pain me to have to keep my dog on a leash at all times... so that is one thing that concerns me....

They are scent dogs and as such, if they find a scent they want to fallow there is little to get them to stop or come back to you. Then can be good dogs and cuddlers, but I would recommend a good fence and never just let them off leash especially in strange areas to them.

they are hunting dogs. they are active and they bay. i'm betting the lab ones may be calmer...lovely dogs, but they will need exercise. I love beagles but dont have one due to the last posters comment..they want to run and track..which is in their genetics.
that said..i will say again...if they were lab dogs, they are probably used to being in a cage. so they may be a LOT calmer.

I had one. It didn't listen well, but in it's defense we did no training at all with it. If he got loose, it was hell trying to catch him. Cute as all get out. Howling fool.

Have you ever had a beagle? Can you tell me about them? What are their best sides and what are their bad sides?

I am considering getting a beagle from a shelter, but I don't have any experience with this breed. When looking for information about the beagle, I just read that in the US this is the most popular family dog.

The shelter has beagles who came from a laboratory where they were used for animal experiments. Most of them are 1 year old. Some of them are older, some are pups.
