Default New beagle owner...need to know if getting another puppy is a good idea or bad one.

I just got a beagle puppy 2 months ago she has been a joy and alot of, but I knew that coming in. My roommates our moving out and so is my beagles play mate. Which was a 6 month old pit bull pup. They love playing together. I have been thinking of getting another dog so she won't be alone when I'm at work. I have the time for another puppy and us to taking care of 2-3 at the same time. So I'm not worried about the add training. I heard so many mixed reviews on getting another beagle. Is getting a another beagle a good or bad idea? I have the might be looking at adopting a 4month old dachshund beagle mix this sunday. Is it a good idea? Please me owners help beagle owners. My pup is also 4 months old is it good to get them the same age?

I am of the belief that beagles are pack animals. They will lay all over each other or walk on each other with a no harm no foul attitude. If you have the time and financial resources for a second dog personally I would go for it. I can't imagine just having one beagle. I'd probably go through some type of withdrawal and have to be hospitalized if I only had one.

I am very fortunate as we have plenty of land and trails. I never have all ten of my pack on leash. But when I have two or more out and about I use a coupler to attach to their harness that hooks two at a time. Trust me I've had my share of face plants while walking!!!! Lol

I have four and I second everything My6Beagles said. The only thing I would recommend is not to get a 2nd until the 1st is reliably housebroken.

I absolutely agree with both My6Beagles and Hsaiotei.

It seems you are up for task, my only advice is.....get another dog, because YOU want another dog. Never get another dog for the resident dog.
