This is my Ruby at the same age - soooo cute!
Beagles are scent hounds and this is obvious from day one. Their noses rule their lives and can lead them into all kinds of mischief. However, although beagles can be strong willed dogs, a very tenacious breed, they are also very loving, affectionate and very good company. Their hearts are huge and their welcome when you come into the room whether you have been away five minutes or a few hours is always heart-warming. In my personal experience, they do not have very good recall skills and therefore most beagles are on lead most of the time, though each dog is individual so you never know, you might get the exception to the rule. I found that toilet training was easier with Ruby than it was with Oscar - I've been told by other beagle owners that bitches are usually quicker - be consistant and you'll win through! Most of all, enjoy your new member of the family as much as you can - they don't stay little like this for long Good luck x
