Pictured on your left is Brooke, a 3-year-old female Beagle-terrier or Beagle-Dachshund mix. She is an affectionate dog who quickly bonds with people, and who gets along well with other dogs.
Shorter than a typical Beagle, this 20-pound girl possesses many of the traits of Beagles, including a love of the outdoors and an interest in the scents of the squirrels, oppossums, and other creatures that roam my neighborhood. Brooke is housebroken, and marches right to the back door when she needs to go outside.
We have not observed any negative behaviors in Brooke, with the possible exception of some separation anxiety (she whines when people leave the house). She loves to cuddle on the couch with people, and prefers sleeping in a bed with people than to sleep by herself.
