    I have a rescued beagle who is the sweetest most loving dog I have ever had.i am certain we were meant for each other. He barks ,bays chews, jumps fences,and opens the fridge and steals food but is still the best dog ever.He loves me, my children and our closest friends, and our bichon maltese

    I am curious if this breed has any specific medical issues to be aware of. I am looking to adopt one and he has a very long torso.

    We rescued our dear Suzie 8 years ago – she had heartworms and was neglected and left in a pound. We loved her till the day we had to put her to sleep (today, 28 Jan). She developed hemangiosarcoma and it was malignant. She was the best dog ever…sweetest ever (everyone said it). We can never replace her. Found this sight just trying to get a glimpse at other Bagles..Samantha, we kept kennel open so she felt somewhat in control, but taught her to go to the kennel and when she did, we left it open and she didn’t feel trapped (not saying that is the right thing, but it worked for us). When she tried to get out, we’d always say ‘get back in your kennel’ and she was find (albeit we repeated it alot).

    We just rescued what we believe to be a beagle/basset puppy.. looks to be no more than 6 months old, and we are having a hard time potty training him. We have a crate but he has gone in the crate as well as when he gets crated for bed time he pretty much howls all night. Can anyone shed some light on the best way to train him and how to get him to not howl when he is crated at night?

      Love and patience. Our “lilly” rescued us, but it took a while to know it. She had been adopted and returned twice by others before us according to her records. Honestly, was close to giving up on housebreaking her as it was almost six months before she got it. I am not recommending this, but my wife called me at work in tears because she “beat” the dog. I could not believe what I was hearing and raced home more worried about my wifes state of mind than the dogs condition. I know my wife is not capable of abuse. My wife survived, I could see no reaction or difference in the dog from any other day over the last six months, but she is one of the best behaved (although still true to the breed stubborn) dogs I have owned ever since that day. I believe all the time spent in the overcrowded shelter where she spent most of her first 10 months of life hurt her in the housebreaking department. We have had her for over 8 years now and love her more than I thought possible. When he does “get it”, you will have the best companion ever. Don’t give up.

      Samantha, additionally, place a t shirt or similar item of clothing you have worn in the cage with the dog. your scent may help appease and settle it.

      Let him sleep in your room with you- either on a dog bed or in his crate but in the same room. He wants to be in the “den” with the rest of his pack (you). I agree that a shirt of soft toy with your scent on it will help him. Dogs like to be with everyone especially at night- they are not usually solitary creatures. We LOVE our Beagle/Basset cross- we adopted her from the shelter- she is a fantastic dog. She had been extremely neglected. We still occasionally have trouble with potty training but it has resolved itself for the most part now that she knows she has a loving family and a home.

    My parents had a Beagle Basset 30 years ago and STILL talk about what a wonderful dog she was! I have a friend with a Basset who just had a litter of Bagles. I am VERY excited and looking forward to welcoming one of them home!

    oh. wow, I always wanted one, a basset hound, but they are very expensive, I grew up with them, we live in San Jose ca, they are beautiful, as we had a beagle for 9 years, but she passed away, she is a relative to these, so we are looking for one to adopt, or care for, I have grand children that would love one, if you know someone who does not want it or one has been neglected please contact me dianebohn572gmail.com. or call -408-561-1647, I would not care if it was a female, or male as long as it is young one, feel free to pass my information to your friends close by me Thank you Diane

    I had a Bagle which I adopted at 6 years of age. We just lost her at age 14, and what a loss it was. She was the sweetest, gentlest little soul. She literally never barked but would give us a welcome home howl that had to be heard to be believed. She never chewed anything either. As far as I concerned she was the perfect dog. I’m already looking for anaother.

    I am a dog trainer with a neglected bagle hound across the street. This delightful dog is so misunderstood that the owners have taken to putting an e-collar on him for the nuisance barking. The only reason he barks is because he is neglected. I want to introduce myself and tell them that there is a different way, but on the other hand I am not invited and I could just call the authorities.
