Behavior Problems in Rescued Laboratory Beagles

I am really quite interested with behaviors of beagles particularly those that have been rescued from laboratories. This question popped up in my mind when I read the thread on rescued puppies.

Perhaps those who are proud owners of rescued beagles can compare notes here.

Not everyone is carved out to take care of these "scarred" creatures. It will take time, endless patience, and tons of effort to earn their trust in man again.
I totally agree with this, Peggy was a lab rescue and had 4 homes before we took her on permanantly, people just couldn't put up with the constant following, naughty behaviour, baying, food stealing.

We knew it was going to be a long process with her and she's come on leaps and bounds but she still suffers terrible seperation anxiety and I haven't been able to return to work yet because of the noise and the neighbours but it's something we're still working on with her.
