Too Quiet Beagle

Our Sadie is almost 16 months old. She is still very quiet.
We can coax a little “Buff!” out of her if she thinks there’s someone at the door.
If she gets really excited, maybe a single, honest bark.
The most I’ve ever heard from her was when she was running full speed, playing with the neighbor’s Boarder Collie. It was an occasional, high pitched “yip” that almost sounded ( If I didn’t know better.) like she was in pain. Oh, and she’ll growl if you play tug-a-war with her.
My wife thinks I’m crazy, but we spent a little time at Beagle Palooza, and I kinda liked all of the Arrrooooing. I wish Sadie would express herself that way. (Once in a while.)
“Be happy she doesn’t!” I’m told. :nono5:

Both Moose and Popcorn were a LOT quieter when we first got them until they learned and adopted all of Booker's bad habits (including barking right in the face of black dogs - not sure why she does that). Walking the three of them together can be quite a symphony - but for the most part they are quiet at home unless there is a reason to make noise.

Booker and Moose will also bay when chasing squirrels or rabbits, but so far all Popcorn does is a high pitched yip-yip sound - I'm hoping that will develop into a bay as she matures (and since she is only 2 now it sounds like that may be the case).

The other thing I find odd is that Moose has the highest voice of the three (by a long way), even though he is the biggest and the only male. He had been tied up with a too-tight electrical cord before he was rescued, however, and sometimes we wonder if that damaged his vocal chords somewhat.
