I am hoping for some suggestions and advice with this topic. This past weekend I started helping out at a beagle rescue and unknown to me they recently had a pregnant beagle dropped off and have babies. I would really like to adopt one but I know the owner of the rescue won't let her beagles go to just anyone and she expects most to have a yard so they have plenty of room to get exercise, especially for puppies. I talked to her yesterday about adopting and she said that since I only have a very small fenced in patio I need to have a plan of how I am going to wear out my puppy on a daily basis with rain, snow, sleet, blazing heat or just a normal day.
I do work an 8 hour a day job and I realize that 8 hours is way too long to leave a puppy alone, however, I live with my long time boyfriend and he works nights 3 months on and then 1 month of days. So for the most part there will be someone home with the pup.
I would love to get some suggestions on ideas for the plan I need to come up with for the beagle rescue owner and experiences you all may have had with a beagle without a yard and having a beagle with an 8 hour job.
I have been doing my research and understand the tendencies beagles have and attention they need. I am willing to put in the work and dedication to owning a beagle pup.
Thank you in advance!
