Shane and I would like to get another dog. I want another Beagle but Shane wants one that's bigger. But not too big. Caesar loves strangers and doesn't notify us when someone is at the door. I'm not saying that I want a dog that barks a lot. But we want one that will let us know if someone strange is around when Shane's son is playing outside. We love Caesar and wouldn't trade him for the world! But we want to expand our furry family. My question is this, do you know what kind of dog is protective but is also a good family pet (that likes Beagles and cats too)? Thanks!
