Scent Hound


Beagles rescued through the Beagles and Buddies Rescue

The Beagle will let you know he’s around, especially if left alone with no companions (you may need to get two).  He has a LOUD voice!  They can be stubborn and difficult to train.  Because of their deep instinctive natures they should not be left to roam alone.  Their nose and need for activity may lead them into troublesome situations.  They are gentle animals who are great with children and other dogs.  Cats or other small pets may turn into “game” unless the Beagle is socialized with these pets.  Brush as needed and only bathe when absolutely necessary.  Check their ears on a very regular basis.  Because of their love of the underbrush you should frequently check for ticks and fleas.

We STRONGLY recommend that you get your dog from a respectable breeder or rescue organization.  Pet store puppies may get their dogs from Puppy Mills that normally breed only for profit, not quality or concern for the puppy or its eventual owner.
If you would like help locating a breeder or rescue agency near you please E-Mail PGAA (, and let us know your city/state and the type of dog you are looking for.  Do not assume that PGAA has qualified all of the breeders or rescues on this site.  Do your own check of each breeder or rescue — be sure that you are comfortable with the organization before you buy, adopt or turn-over a dog.
