I would like to cross a beagle (female) with a poodle...the same size. Before everybody pounces on me let me explain.
I am retired and live full time in northeast Thailand. I have had about 10 dogs since I retired, now usually keep 2 to
keep me company when I go for my daily walk...about 1.5 hr a day. Feeling bad about being responsible for my min pin's
death, my thai wife got a beagle without talking to me about it, and of course, I fell in love with it on sight. Now I know...
rural Thailand is no place for a beagle because:
it is not an inside dog
it is a pack dog
it is a sniffer
thais don't look after their dogs unless they are show dogs
So, it is very lonely, the other dog of mine, a full-size heinz guard dog, only tolerates her because I told him to, or else.
In another year when she's ready to have pups, I want her to have non-pure beagle pups, because I'd never sell a pure beagle pup
to a thai.
So I want to cross her with a local poodle, and if I get one now, in a year he could be the dad. I have had local poodles before, and
they fit in well here......many poodles around..maybe from the French, who used to be in Laos.
What do you think? I have to get another dog for her, because she is just driving us crazy.
