Hi everyone! My first time posting. I looked for groups on beagles for perhaps some advice regarding the beagle we adopted from a shelter when he was 8. We were not really warned but immediately we noticed in the beginning would escape and attack and bite people and dogs. When I tried to reach shelter they ignored my calls but I also couldn’t/wouldn’t send him back there after we just gave him a home that would be so wrong so.... we accepted the challenge but 3 years later his anxiety when my son leaves is still intense. He howls and cries even though we are home and attempting to comfort him. He still bites and I’m afraid my son, as much as I want him too doesn’t help him spend as much energy as he should though he walks him twice a day. He seems to lie around looking sad and bored all the time which is heartbreaking but I’m determined to help him. He bit my son a couple times when out on walks and encountering other dogs recently. Bit my husband and growled at him. I intervened once when he escaped and attacked a neighbours dog and was able to control him and even have him sit, yet he panics when my son is not around so apparently I’m not the alpha or owner. Any advice would be welcome. Thanks peeps! He is a part of our family no matter how troubled I am hopeful he can be trained. I know he can, I trained him to get along with our cats. I could use some tips; we tried setting up training with shelter in beginning but never heard back so gave up.
