I want to know what the experiences are of others who have rescued lab Beagles? What the special challenges are (if any) that would be different than an adopted Beagles that has had positive or negative experiences in a home. The positives of getting a lab Beagle(I am sure many more). We are on a wait list for a baby from a breeder next spring but I would really like to rescue. My first Beagle was adopted from a shelter as a puppy with just 3 legs. She was an amazing dog. The second was from a breeder. Where I live now, there are (thankfully) no Beagles in shelters anymore. Sadly (for these dogs) most are Chihuahuas and Pitties. I do have two senior rescue Chihuahuas.
