Well, got the dog last night. he isn't exactly a beagle, maybe a mix with some other hounds. his body is a little longish and his ears are real floppy but he has a handsome face. previous retard owner was too lazy to take him out and let him use a towel in the garage for a bathroom, so he figured the kitchen mat and towel on the floor were both ok. he also peed in his new crate last night around 12am, but after cleaning and walking, made it clean to 6am when we take our dogs out for their first walks. he peed on leash and got praised and the rest of the morning was accident free, so hopefully he learns quickly. he loves being around all the other dogs, and my 2 youngest girls seem to love him so I guess he is now mine. tentatively named him 5.
