I grew up with loads of pets, mainly seven large Great Danes. But we also had everything from raccoons to terrapins. Nothing these days as you have to be home so much.

Could I ask you what kind of temperament a Beagle has? I've always thought they look really cute..
Beagles are nice little fellas , very friendly and no trouble , thats the good bit , you'll only know the next bit if you own one , all Beagle owners look at each other with the knowing smile that says yeah I know. Right they have there own agenda which is finding food and nothing comes in its way, they are the eating champs of the canine world and will sell you for a crumb, training them is nigh on impossible , sit for a treat and that's it. They are escapologists but it takes them a long time to get far as the search for food begins , my garden is large it would keep out the SAS and just about keeps the Beagle in. They sniff the ground constantly , a hoover on four legs , walking is tedious , no matter how many times you say come on and pull , if I'm walking in the street I try and walk down the middle of the road as there is less scent. If its edible he will eat it and I mean anything , so you are constantly watching for dog poo and give a tug before he gets at it. To sum up I would describe them as lovable rouges.
Oh yes and another thing , they do not recall , they have heard and may look your way but unless there is something in it for them forget it , particularly annoying when they have gone walkabout , they could be a few yards away but will not acknowledge your call in anyway

Yip beagles have a built in tracking mode which means that once they get the scent of something they won't leave it alone, they pretty much need to 'lead' everywhere.
My daughter researched loads of breeds before settling on her choice, plenty of info on the internet about which to go for depending on exercise needs, feeding, training, children ( best breeds for kids will surprise you ), oh and remember the size, friend of ours has just bought a labrador pup and at 14 weeks it's already 14 kilos.
