Beagle Adoption – 2 year old male – Alberton



*NOTE:* beagles are high maintenance dogs. They need constant attention and lots of exercise and mental stimulation. Training is essential for puppies! They are easily bored, and WILL bark and howl and disturb your neighbours. They WILL dig up your garden and chew your plants/shoes/kreepy-krawly/clothes/sprinkler system/everything they see ESPECIALLY if they are bored. PLEASE remember these factors when purchasing a puppy!! Beagles are pack animals and NEED to be part of your family. A beagle living outside, alone is a recipe for disaster.*

Please so some reading and research into the breed if you have not had a beagle before.Dog Breed Info has some valuable info as well as Wikipedia. You may find some interesting info on Burke’s Backyard too.

Before you get tempted by the cute face, have a look at this post to see what beagles around South Africa get up to when you are not looking**

Other: Lucky has cherry eye, was told by the vet that an op would be purely cosmetic and that it does not bother him, so have not had it operated on. If possible it would be nice for Lucky & daisy (Jack Russel cross) to go  together, Lucky has grown up with Daisy – who arrived at our house as a stray.  Lucky was given to us by a ‘breeder’ because of the cherry eye.  Both are fantastic with kids and fine with my cat, though will chase if the cat runs.  Lucky does have a ‘thing’ for cushions and has destroyed all his ‘mattresses” and the garden furniture cushions. Daisy has been spayed, I had her done when she arrived, but I have no idea how old she is, don’t think she is very old though.
