I know someone recently posted about adding a second bagle or fostering a second beagle. I just kind of wanted to hear what people think the advantages/disadvantages are of adding another dog. Our beagle is 4 mos old and very sweet but, of course, energetic. We've been thinking of getting him a brother so he has someone to play with and help keep him busy! Also, I think he has separation anxiety. When we are gone we leave him in a crate and he drools excessively, tries to dig his way out and has been breaking his teeth trying to chew out! He gets upset if we step outside to get something out of the car; he sits at the door and whines til we come back. He also gets upset when we're separated from him even if he can see us and reach us like when we're in the shower. Sometimes I'll even leave the curtain open so he can see that I'm still there and he just sits there and whines at me till I get out! Once we get home/near him again he's totally sweet and normal. Anyway, I was thinking that maybe another dog would help him to feel like part of his pack was still there when we're gone or unavailable. What do you guys think?
