I've never had a dog before, but have always loved beagles and am considering buying one. From the research I've done, it seems to be a great breed for me, but I still have several questions that I'm hoping someone can help me with.
I think the most important one for me is, I already have two birds. Would it just be a bad idea to get a beagle? Or would it work if the puppy is accustomed to the birds from an early age?

Secondly, I'm a teacher, so during the school year I won't be home between 7:00am and 3:30 during the week. Usually my mother is at home, but there are days when she is gone for the day. Would the beagle have a hard time staying alone occasionally for that amount of time?

Finally (for now at least!), how are beagles at protection? I don't want a big, true guard dog, but it's just my mother and me at home, so one of the reasons I wanted a dog is for a little added security.

Thank you for any advice you can give.
