Let's talk now about how to select a beagle. And anytime you consider a specific breed if you have no knowledge of dogs of this breed it's a good idea to seek out more information before you actually go out and purchase or adopt a dog of that breed. You want to know will this animal general characteristics fit in with your family and your lifestyle now and in the future, because remember, your dog is going to live for, you know, hopefully fifteen years, and so you want to make sure that you adopt a dog who could go into from an apartment to a home or into a life with children. You just want to take all of that into consideration. And beagles in particular; I can tell you a little bit about them, and then I would strongly recommend that you consult some other resources on the web or books. But, beagles are very friendly dogs in general. They tend to be very affectionate with people, and get along pretty well with other dogs and cats. Again, individual dogs are going to vary. They have a very easy groom requirement. They have a easy to keep coat. They could have a dog smell to them which you could address with diet, but also might be a consideration. They do also, shed, and they; one thing about beagles that really you need to consider is their bark. They have a lovely howling bark that they use, they would have used in their intention intentional purpose, which would have been in kind of a hunt situation, so you want to take that into consideration; whether or not you can live with a dog if you get a dog who barks on a regular basis.
