My little JRT (in the pic) died in February. I love and have fostered a sighthound in 2013. I would love to adopt Donnie as I like older dogs but my Son thinks I should adopt a Beagle. I have applied but haven`t heard back from the rescue place and it`s been over a week.
All the Beagles I know eat dog poo and run away for hours if let off the lead.
Donny is a super hound. Why not take your son along to meet him. I'm sure Donny will win him over.
I didn't like to say it but that's what I've heard from speaking to owners of beagles too. I know a lady who owns one (as well as a spaniel and a little terrier) who says as much as she loves him, she'd never have another!! And so does her friend who owns one.
Mind you, how many of us have said that about lurchers after they've been naughty?
Well I can certainly substantiate the running off bit of that and also escaping from the garden. Beagles follow their noses, nothing seems to stop them. I've known several over the years and they have all been the same.
Surely if you want a dog it is your decision not your sons?
Exactly - that`s why I put one of these !! But I need him for transport ATM.
Well it`s far too hot for neither man nor beast to do anything right now except flunk out in a darkened room .
If you are interested in Donny rather than a Beagle you'll need to email Jenny with information about your home situation and have been house checked. You can find a link to the email address on the SLR website on the Needing Homes page.
I have been home checked - fostered Poppy in 2013.
Poppy`s thread is probably still available somewhere on here.
You may find that SLR will want to homecheck you again just to touch base with you. A lot can change in four years, I know my life has changed considerably in the last 4 years (for the better I'm pleased to say) 😊
