Hi Beagles and
We recently adopted Tami and are overjoyed. She knows how to sit, sit pretty,
come and shake. We're still working on down and heel. She gets along GREAT with
our other two dogs and everyone in our family. Tami and Shadoe (our other dog)
run through the house chasing each other and jumping over anything in their
way (including people!!) My friend and I laid down in front of them and Tami
flew over us easily! We think Beagles and Buddies is the best place to adopt
a beagle. We stayed for four hours and brought our dog Shadoe to help us pick
a beagle to be his playmate. It was so much fun! Thank you Connie and all the
other shelter volunteers for being so helpful. And Connie for accepting our
application and letting us have one of your favorite beagles. We'll send pictures
soon and bring Tami back to come visit.
Thanks Beagles and Buddies,
Megan, Glenda, Jim and Tami Snell
"To all my
friends at Beagles and Buddies,
name is Shylo, remember me? I was recently adopted by Jan and Craig Ryan. I
am very happy at my new home in Costa Mesa. I miss all of my buddies there but
I am having a great time now. All I can say is "America, what a country."
Two weeks ago I was at BeaglesAndBuddies hoping for someone to adopt me. Now
I am living the life of luxury. I sent you some pictures of me on my Grandmothers
yacht called Black Jack at Catalina Island. Good luck to all of you at Beagles
and Buddies. Love,Shylo" 08-29-01
do new dogs and babies get along?
The baby and the dog should never be left alone together.
However, Bassets are the least likely to be dangerous. There are other breeds
such as the Labrador, the Golden Retriever, and the Collie that are unlikely
to snap at children.
Adopting an older dog that has had experience with children is much better
than adopting a puppy or a young dog without experience.
With puppies, teething is part of growing up - and sometimes they don't
know the strength of their own jaws. Rather than riskng it, go with an older
dog. That way, both parties can have fun & respect without getting into
