Back in 2005, we bought out our first beagle home. Her name was Bracken, a tri-coloured girl with the sweetest little face.

We collected her from a local breeder, with who we have become friends. I’ll never forget the first day collecting this 10-week-old pure-bred beagle puppy.

Sam (the breeder) shed a few tears that day as it was the last puppy of her first-ever litter of beagles.

I remember her waving us off and wishing us good luck!

Those first 8 months or so were a shock.

We were a young married couple with our first-ever dog, so everything was a steep learning curve, but it was also a lot of fun.

That was the start of our love for beagles, a journey of frustration, sometimes sadness but always fun and loving.

Beagles are the most loving hounds. Loyal to a fault, never complaining, always eating!

Beagles make wonderful family pets and companions, but it can be challenging.

Beagles are stubborn and wilful, two attributes that can get them into trouble more times than I care to remember!

We set this blog up so anyone interested in adopting a beagle can find answers to questions and perhaps learn from our experiences.

We’d love to hear from you if you have a question we have not answered on this blog.
