I am not mad at your post but I politely disagree. My beagles are "house beagles" but they get plenty of walks, car rides, dog park etc etc and they play "seek" games and things like that to keep their noses active. They have never destroyed my house or anything in it. They need training and patience, as most dogs do. I do agree with you that people should research the dog they choose and they need to be sure to let that dog live the life as the dog they are meant to be.
My husband and I work full time but I come home at lunch every day to let them out. We take them with us when we can on outings and we don't go out all the time and leave them alone.
