I just rescued a beagle from the shelter this afternoon. She is a female about 4-5 years old they said. We have to take her to the vet to see if she has been fixed, and get her shots. We don't know her name, but since we got her on St Patty's day, we named her Patty. She is so friendly and just wants to be loved. When we left the pound, she just jumped up into the truck. We got home and took her for a ride through our woods in a utility vehicle. She loved it. We have her tied in the garage till she knows this is her home. I heard that beagles run away. Can anyone tell me about beagles. She seems so content, she doesn't even bark being out there by herself. She just wags her tail when I go out and sit down and love her.
