I will try to keep this short. I (along with a wonderful group of rescuers) spent countless hours tracking & finally trapping a beagle who was running for 3 weeks. He first showed up around the start of small game season here. I am trying to make finding his people a little easier on myself & am wondering if there is any way to tell if he's a lost hunting dog or someone's pet. He knows basic commands but maybe there are hunting specific commands that he would only know as a hunting dog?
I feel bad for this little guy & would love to help him get home. I haven't found any missing beagle posts in my area so I am assuming he's not from here & I'm hoping he wasn't dumped. Any advice/suggestions/etc would be appreciated.
