Well, at least you know that they are definitely indoor dogs.

I'm thinking Bayer had them.

I agree with the commenters in the article about the good work the rescue does, but also the silliness of sending purebred rescue dogs to LA. Isn't the SF Bay Area a large enough population to take in 8 dogs? Why spend hundreds of dollars and many hours shuttling them to LA, when there are thousands of local households that would welcome them?

I happen to have a Beagle-Lab mix...though the mother was a beagle (poor thing gave birth to 10 pups, that's gotta hurt).

I call her a Blab.

I smell a Disney movie here, starring Brendan Fraser as a lowly janitor who, while mopping the floor of the laboratory, is befriended by nine talking beagles. Add in b-list starlet du jour as a caring scientist/love interest and voila, we've got a movie.

Beagles are distilled evil. Territorial evil bastards.

Beagles are great dogs, great with kids, loyal, smart... just don't let them off the lead, cause if they catch the trail of a rabbit or similar critter, you hear that high-pitched yelping and they are gone.

Oh good, a Beagle thread. Maybe someone can help me?

I got a beagle January 2 from Animal Friends. He's about a year old.
This dog doesn't poop for days at a time.

I take him out constantly. At one point it was almost every 1/2 hour.
I've taken him for hour long walks. I have a big yard that he has to sniff every inch of. Still won't poop though.

I get inside, he's out of sight for 30 seconds, and he poops in the house.

He used to be like this with peeing when we first got him. He didn't pee outside for the first 2 weeks we had him but this is getting better. But the poop, not at all.
He hadn't pooped in 48 hours now. I JUST was outside with him for about 20 minutes. He just stood there, being distracted by everything.

Came inside and he pooped in the living room.

Advice?

/yes, we praise the ever living bejesus out of him (and give a treat) when he poops OUTSIDE, but it's so few and far between I doubt he can remember to associate the two!

Add deer to that list. My dad used to have Beagles for running rabbits.

I have a Beagle that has this undying hate to the neighbor's pug... Actually, he doesn't like anyone that fancies my other dog (she's a beagle/foxhound mix).

What you need to do is scold him verbally, then ignore him for 10 or 15 minutes. When he poops inside take the poop outside and put it in the yard. He will eventually get the hint.

Try this, my uncle did it and swears by it:

When the beagle is outside playing or howling or whatever, close the outside door and get into the dog's crate. Take off your underoos and take the biggest shiat on the dog's bed. Let the dog back in and tell him that "now he knows what it feels like" and hopefully he will learn that it is rude to shiat where people sleep.

xcracer: When he poops inside take the poop outside and put it in the yard.


I somehow read this as you instructing the owner to take a shiat in his own yard for demonstration purposes.

Then two posts later someone suggested something along those lines...

Keep in mind, when in vet school, to practice surgery occasionally live animals are used. After performing a number of different surgeries on them, they are put to sleep. Perfectly worthwhile, yet ultimately sad. Still, better animals bred for the purpose than to practice on someone's pet.

What research were these dogs used for? We've all heard the horror stories, but remember, if you're testing a product to be sure it will be safe around dogs, you kinda gotta test it on a dog. Just because the rat survived it, doesn't mean the dog will. On the other hand, if you're testing rat poison, you want to be sure it DOES kill the rat, but does NOT kill the dog. That requires a very delicate balance that simply isn't realistic if you can't test it on the animals you're most concerned about, namely those kept as pets. At least these dogs get to be rescued. They could just as easily be put to sleep and nobody would be the wiser.

We owned four beagles (a pair at a time). But for their howling and tendency towards spinal injuries, they were lovely companions.

Get him checked out by a vet sounds like he may have an intestinal issue. Other wise try pumpkin. Canned pumpkin just make sure it is 100% pumpkin and not pumpkin pie mix. Dogs love the hell out of it and will cure both constipation and diarrhea. Also you can put it in his Kong as a treat. For a beagle 1 cup should be fine to help get things moving. It could be behavioral but I would see if it medical first.

Worst case try peepads they are a god send. http://www.pee-pads.com/

2) what kind of food do you give? (low or high quality?)
