I currently have a two year old lab mix that I rescued from a shelter. One of the things I love about him is how easy going he is. He doesn't bark much and he will not run off if I let him off the leash. Now I am considering adding an adorable mini beagle puppy to our family, but am a little hesitant due to the information I have read about beagle behavior when researching the breed online. Most of what I have read characterize beagles as stubborn dogs that can be difficult to train. Do any of you have beagles that do not bark frequently or run away when they are off a leash? I guess I want to know what I am getting myself into so I pick a puppy that will be a good fit for our family.
