Who can resist those cute Beagle puppy eyes?
This puppy won’t get too big and could easily fit into an apartment and it won’t cost too much to feed.
The kids have been asking for a puppy for a while now and they might be old enough to take on this responsibility.
While these are valid considerations, before deciding that a Beagle puppy or hybrid mix should be your newest family member, perhaps you should know that Beagles are hunting hounds that grow into stubborn adults who have a VERY strong sense of smell, are into all manner of garbage, ignore you and howl when they get on a scent, dig holes in your garden, climb fences to escape and easily gain weight because they need far more daily exercise than the average family has time for.
A smaller dog they may be, however, if you think that leaving a small hunting hound all by his or herself, locked inside for hours, while you are out at work or gone shopping at the local store should be no problem, this is what you might come home to:

However, when it comes down to choosing a puppy or dog to share your life, basing your decision on mere aesthetics, a chance meeting or a doleful expression from a pair of cute puppy eyes that could melt the heart of the most stoic tough guy is probably not going to be the best decision of your life.
What can happen when you choose the wrong dog for your energy, age, lifestyle and personality can truly leave you red faced, frustrated, angry and distraught, plus your ego and then your wallet may then be faced with taking a serious hit when you finally realize that you’ve made a bad decision that ends up with you having to explain to your crying children, friends or neighbors why Rover is no longer part of your family.
When we bring a puppy or dog into our lives, we humans often are not thinking about the consequences of choosing a dog that is totally incompatible because we’re so enamored with the idea of adding this new fur friend to our family that thinking forward to what some of the disturbing consequences might actually be is often overlooked.
Sadly, when choosing the wrong dog to share your life with, Rover can quickly lose his charm when within six months or less you may be faced with the hard, cold reality that looks something like this:
