In our Sunday paper this week
<span style="font-weight: bold">Beagles top bad dog list</span>:
Naughties dog breed :
1. Beagles
2. Labrador
3. Boxer
4. Staffordshire terrier
5. German Shepherd
6. Jack russel
7. Maltese
8. Shar pei
9. Cocker spaniel
10. Kelpie /cattle dog

The article says:

If they were kids , they'd be told to sit on the naughty step. But dog handlers the nation's naughties breeds would behave better if they were trained.
The pint-sized beagle has emerged as Australia's naughtiest dog breed.
It outranks labradors and boxers in digging up lawns, chewing on toys and running amok. Staffordshire bullterriers and german shepherds were just as guilty when it came to creating havoc according to a survery by dog trainers Hanrob.
The study , which looked at the behaviour of thousands of canines also revealed the most common bad habits, included barking loudly, chewing on toys, pulling on the lead and jumping on people.






Since I read this on Sunday every time Bazel starts to go out and bark at all and sundry like he does and say to him See this is why your on the naughties breed list it's your fault Lol. I must admit Bazel was a very naughty puppy he was guilty of running off with my soft toys [ and we didn't have kids then], he took off with our socks, he destroyed my watch band, my husband had to concrete all around our fence because he kept getting out. He has been through many beds over the years as he chews them and tries to wear them. Merlin on the other hand wasn't that naughty except when it came to his tummy . But naughty or not I love them. I told my hubby when he showed me the article Well I am offended what about being the cutest breed that is what they should be .

It's amazing that knowing they can be the naughtiest dogs, they are also in the list of the top 10 most desired dogs. We all must like naughty.

They certainly are. I think naughtiness is part of the cuteness too.

The problem is people buy them not understanding the breed and what they need. I don't know that I will get another Beagle soon, because of just losing Lillie, but it is a top consideration. I will know more now than I did 2 yrs ago for sure!

Oh and Stray Jack is considered a *Jackabee*. He is worst than my 2 Beagles and Boxer are put together! He climbs the fence and loves to steal anything that the neighbors don't have nailed down. As a matter of fact a couple of weeks ago a neighbor rang our doorbell and said to my hubby (and I quote), Dude your dog has a jar stuck on his head. Apparently Stray Jack found a plastic gallon mayo jug and stuck his head in to get that last lick.........and he got stuck. Nobody could catch him and that was a sight him running with that jug on his head!!!!

I think the naughtiness is playfulness and cleverness, which keep owners entertained and have kept beagles at our side throughout the years. They're loyal, yet they keep us on our toes. Other dog breeds are nice, but I think I'll be stuck on beagles for a good while.

Buzz ate another duvet today. I've lost track of what number that is. But one look into those big brown eyes and I just go off and buy yet another one... to get all ready for his next snack!

I agree with the first three on that list.

When I used to go to obedience classes the labs and boxers where always the most naughty and out of control dogs there. I was the only one with a Beagle and she was very good of course

That is very true! Despite their mischevious ways and crazy antics, here we all are showing our love for this breed! Beagles are like potato chips: Bet ya can't have just one!

We had no idea when we got a beagle. I think we were tossing up between a beagle and a jack russell at the time. So glad we got a beagle. They might be a challenge but they are fun.

Us too . They do keep you entertained. The amount of laughs and joys over the years. Our beagles are a lot like kids I think lots of fun with lots of mischief.

Oh boy we don't know how many beds we have had to buy Bazel over the years.

Well, I certainly can't disagree with that ranking!! I guess their mischief is part of their charm, but they are indeed naughty!!! What fun would a truly obedient dog be, anyway???? That would be SO boring! ROTFL!

I have the top 2 dogs on that list, I must be a glutton for punishment! LOL Actually, the labs caused very little grief as pups, but they didn't have as much access as Duke and Violet.

Duke was the king of mischief. He was such a handful as a pup that I literally could not turn my back on him for more than a minute. Luckily, he has outgrown most of that, but he still has his moments of naughtiness. The sad part is, I would miss those moments if he were to become truly reformed. He entertains me with his naughty ways and the innocent act he gives me when he knows he's been busted.

Violet is much better behaved in that she doesn't tear things up, but she will steal things, like socks, slippers, bras, etc. We used to blame it all on Duke and then we started paying attention and realized Vi was the culprit half the time, she was just a lot sneakier about it and didn't get caught in the act!

They may be naughty, but I love them and wouldn't change a single thing (well, if I could have back the shoes they've destroyed, that would be nice).

Obviously this list was not made up by beagle lovers. It takes special people to be adopted by a beagle. Maybe the writer was refused adoption by a beagle, and decided to get even. I still think they are the ARROOOOOOOO best!
