This is our excellent rescue foster beagle Duke. We reckon he might be pure beagle, what do you think? Would love advice on stimulating him (and on surviving a beagle) so we might be able to adopt him, because right now his nicknames include “peste” and “little nightmare boy”…

He certainly has the mischievous look of a beagle. Mine is always up to no good but the love and affection you get back from them makes it all worthwhile. If you’re looking for good ways to keep him busy then go-find games are good as it lets them use their nose and their natural foraging instinct. Get him to stay in another room while you hide 5 small treats around, then let him go find them. He’ll love that game and it will help with the ‘stay’ command. As they’re food oriented they can actually be really easy to train however he’ll likely always retain his stubbornness. We take ours on walks to new places as often as we can so he gets all the new smells and that helps tire him out mentally as well as physically. Also they calm down a bit when they get a wee bit older. Mine is 5 now and wants to cuddle more often than he wants to play. He’s still a rebel but he’s much easier to manage than he was when he was a puppy. Hope you find some of that helpful… Edit: spelling

My 11 year old just wants to cuddle and nap most of the day, and then beg for food when she’s awake. But when she gets the zoomies? My baby goes *hard* and runs like she’s still 4. They do calm down but I find they retain their playfulness, it just hides for a bit.


Dabawse26

Exaclty the same as my 10 year old boy


nnaoam

That's him to a tee! Goes completely wild with the closest stuffed animal he can find.


nnaoam

We've found that he's smart enough to figure out that he only needs to be listening to commands when we have a treat in hand, otherwise there's no point. We might try the hiding treats thing but he gets super frustrated if he can't find a treat sometimes, even if it's just on the floor next to him. He's almost 2 years old according to the vet's estimate so we'll see about how it goes! I tried tiring him by hiding treats in specially-folded paper cups and that worked for a day or two before he figured out how to unfold them in seconds.


rritaintme

+1 for hide and seek of treats. By far that is our beagle’s favorite thing to do…he operates with purpose and a smile! We make it hard and spread stuff out across the backyard but he finds every single treat and just loves the game. It’s also great exercise because he runs like he’s trying to set a world record! Purina bacon treats are his fav for this activity.


mailbox123

Looks like a pure-bread to me especially with the white tail tip! He’s a very handsome young man


nnaoam

He really is! Nobody ever believes us that he's a rescue.


icker_doodle

Looks pure to me. As far as personality, beagles are nicknamed “eternal puppies” for a reason 😂 My girl, Stella, is 11 and didn’t really lose the high energy until 8. The normal puppy destruction ended around 1 1/2 with normal training. If you have a fenced in yard, get him out as often as you can to let him run free and use that great nose, this is heaven for a beagle. Be mindful to only let him off the leash if you are in an enclosed area; their nose takes over any and all commands. The toys to hide treats are great for indoor stimulation. I will say one of best decision I’ve made is getting a beagle! Stella is loyal, loving to all, happy-go-lucky, and the best snuggle partner. All the “nightmare” behaviors were so worth it!


R0ckyRides

He’s beautiful and certainly looks the textbook beagle. My friend just a adopted beagle (Fudgy) and my friend does something that I’ve never seen before. They put treats in 4 or so different sized boxes, then nest the boxes and let Fudgy do his beagle thing. It is VERY cute but more importantly keeps Fudgy stimulated. Another friend who has a big Ol’ American foxhound mix does scent work.


bobert490

Have you tried walks or an off leash dog park? A tired dog is a good dog. My beagle has about a 40-90 battery life. A good hour long walk through the neighborhood keeps his weight down and keeps him getting too mischievous during the day. As they get older the walks can be shorter. Pro tip, they're going to want to stop and smell everything. Your beagle may hate a harness, but a harness makes walks sooo much easier.


nnaoam

He has a harness! Two actually. He hates them with a burning passion but we still use them like you said (and because we're convinced he can escape his collar if he wants to). We aren't brave enough to try walking him off leash in regular parks and there aren't any enclosed dog parks near us but he gets a good two hours of walks a day right now! He was definitely miserable in the week after he got neutered when he could barely get walks. He also has open access to an enclosed back garden which has decent room to run around in when he wants to. It's even got grass, trees and lots of little nooks and crannies behind things so there's plenty to smell when he feels like it! Luckily, the fish pond is covered to stop herons and he hasn't managed to find a way in yet, but that even has a little waterfall for him to listen to (the garden is my dad's pride and joy in a natural, non-manicured kind of way, so he fits right in).


R0ckyRides

This might be an unpopular opinion, so please don't flame me folks. Another friend who has a beagle (i only have friends w/ beagles bc i can't own a beagle at the moment and try to live vicariously) uses a retractable leash. There are definitely issues with using a retractable leash, particularly when it comes to safety (i.e., a beagle darting into the road to follow a scent) and etiquette around other dogs/people. However, I think those problems are mitigated through good practice and caution. I've never walked a beagle that was great at traditional leash walking. However, if you look at walks as extended "sniffs," beagles can be great! Just give them extra time to sniff about but establish a signal that gets their attention back and communicates, "Time to go, buddy." A clicker, a whistle, calling their name. The more stubborn the beagle, the more stark the signal.


nnaoam

We're never doing retractable leashes again, I'm afraid. Previous dog cut my dad's leg nearly to the bone and left a permanent scar. The risks are just too big for me, and afaik the injury risk to dog and owner is what people are usually referring to, rather than safety or etiquette. That being said, most retractable leashes have a thumb button to stop the leash from extending, so we've never had a safety issue in that aspect. When I used to walk my previous dog with one of those as a kid and I just kept my thumb on that button.


R0ckyRides

Ah, that sounds like a good call. Same re thumb button when I was a kid. Then I’d rec one of those leashes that have elastic or whatever the material is in the middle for when your guy darts picking up a scent! Depending on his habits of course!


nnaoam

Honestly, the bigger issue was the time he sat his butt down and refused to move for twenty minutes until my dad rescued my sister by driving over and just picking him up and putting him in the car lol He found a bone, apparently.


AineDez

When we first got our rescue beagle I did have to carry his heavy ass home a couple times until I got better at reading his signals. The finding of bones, street pizza, discarded snacks and all of the fun detritus of a racoon having fun in someone's trash are serious hazards when walking hounds. I couldn't walk mine with headphones, needed to be able to listen for the crunch. I recommend getting a martingale collar (or a semi-breakaway martingale if you're worried he'll get caught on something and choke)- they can't slip them off, because my knucklehead beagle definitely did, although the basset mix never managed it.


poniesgalore

Cheap ways I keep my beagle entertained is meal time! I don’t usually use a bowl, just scatter the food across the floor and he has to sniff out the kibbles. When he’s being particularly hyper and the weather is good I do it in the grass which takes a bit more effort and stimulation.


Brett2145

Duke is super cute! Hoping you and Duke have many lovely and fond years 🐶


Im_Ashe_Man

Looks all beagle to me!


Different_Chair_6470

Both my beagles have been rescues - the first was found at a gas station and handed into the lost dogs home, the second we sought out from a beagle rescue service (many many people buy beagles and then realise they cant and don’t know how to look after them) The first beagle (we had her from about 18 months to nearly 16) was quite a chilled dog. As long as she got her walk every day she was quite happy to just hang out with her other fur brother who was a Maltese. Our second, who is now 5 - well we got him at 3months, he was overflow from a puppy farm - he is and was quite the handful. He is destructive and LOUD!!! We have lost many pairs of flip flops/pillows/blankets/soft toys, he’s chewed the end of beds, knobs on drawers, coffee table ends - you get the picture. The key (in my opinion) is keeping him busy, now that he’s a little more calm, its not so bad but like any toddler, in the beginning, silence meant destruction!!!! Walks and stimulation are key. And as they are so food orientated, training is actually really easy. The one thing I have noticed very recently is that he has decided that he wants to be top dog in our pack (we have a very large older Dalmatian and my husband is the leader of the pack) keeping that in check has been challenging recently. He has been a bit snarly at times but luckily the Dal is chilled and for the most part just lets the beagle do his thing (Dal is also a rescue who was used to be second dog from his original pack so he seems to be ok to revert back). He clearly likes to make himself a little Den, which is something our boy has always done, so blankets/pillows where he can burrow in are important. Enjoy the fun of your new foster and I hope he makes into part of your new pack.


nnaoam

We have no idea what kind of background Duke is from - he was found wandering down a street only a week before we took him, unneutered and without a chip or tag (all illegal here in the UK other than the neutering) but with an electric collar on. Judging by how little he barked when we first got him (the first two days I started getting worried that he couldn't) I'm guessing it was an anti-barking collar. My best guess is he was supposed to be used for some kind of unregistered puppy mill for some reason. He LOVES his blankets. He refused to even touch his bed until I thought to move that blanket onto it. He also likes being covered with them sometimes. If we keep him, we're buying him a bunch more. We gave him an old mermaid blanket too which he quite likes, and we folded an old pillow in half inside a pillowcase for a taller cushion because he likes sleeping with his head raised. He seems to be almost too smart to be trained in our experience... He has no interest in doing the command until he sees a treat in your hand. Like, he will literally wait until you take the treat out of the bag. We're trying to find ways to stimulate him, but he has a very limited attention span for toys - he plays for 30 second bursts and then refuses to acknowledge them. I'm hoping we'll find some toys he likes more and can't immediately destroy - he loves stuffed animals but they last no time at all. I try to DIY some puzzles for him occasionally too. Amazingly about the food oriented thing, he absolutely is, but there's one brand of treat which I think he can't smell so he doesn't even notice it unless it's completely in the open and in front of his face! The other brand he smells so well though that sometimes I have to show him my hands so he can see I'm not holding a treat so he stops jumping if I had a treat for him earlier.


Different_Chair_6470

Aww Duke sounds like a treasure. You just wonder where they come from and what they have put up with don’t you. Our new one, Roy, he is quite skittish, doesn’t like quick moves or bangs but give him a blanket to snuggle under on the couch or a bed, he is all fine!! I just use regular kibble to train - in saying that, we had massive issues with him barking at the possums out the back of our house, it was driving everyone nuts (our neighbors were quite vocal about it too) so every time I send him outside to pee or whatever, I just gently hold his snout and say no barking in a deeper than usual tone and he worked it out quickly - he also responds now really quickly if he forgets and does bark and I go out and yell COME, he bounds up the stairs. He is definitely an inside dog though, he wouldn’t be able to sleep out at night. I hope Duke fits into your household 😊


nnaoam

Our neighbours luckily can't talk, because I'm pretty sure that poodle mix he's hugging is an aspiring huskey. Duke still doesn't bark much to be honest, but he doesn't seem scared to any more, so he'll have like one short barking fit a day. He's so loving and not skittish that it's hard to believe he's a rescue! We didn't even realise how scared he was the first few days until he started coming out of his shell, because it only showed in him wanting to be around people and being on extra good behaviour. I reckon Duke is fine wherever there are people and blankets - indoors, outdoors, doesn't matter. As long as there are people near him who mostly just let him be and occasionally give him a bit of direct attention, he's happy.


pawsforlove

Elk antlers are a popular choice for ours. We don’t leave them out, we save them for rainy days when they have extra energy- the scarcity makes it much more interesting to them. Also, you can soak kibble in water, put it in a long, and then freeze it. It’s mentally stimulating way for a meal.


coyotebored83

> He is destructive and LOUD!!! I have this variety. Thank god he has chilled out after 1. He was the devil as a puppy. Grown people were scared of his zoomies. He was certainly a shark puppy. Mine also wants to be top dog. I thankfully am the leader. He sees my bf and daughter (17) as other dogs though. They are not consistent on training so he really only listens to me. It's annoying cause I have to intervene often. My bf hid his fave ball one time playing with him. He got REALLY upset and fussed (barked loudly) at my bf and then started biting and pulling his hair. LOL. So now anytime he cant find his ball, he goes and starts harrassing my bf. I think it's hilarious. I am still working on training though.

Oh my heart!! What a sweet beagle!

Looks all beagle to me 😄


LydiaAF

Aw definitely a beagle. I have had 2. We are working on some issues with our current beag, Charlie. What behavioral issues is your pup having? I saw he is 2 years old. I would definitely consider him in the puppy window, so he may grow out of the behaviors you are seeing.


nnaoam

Another vet estimated he might even be a few months younger than that. Our main issues are him stealing anything and everything and then running away as fast as he can - it seems to be a mix of doing it for attention and just liking to eat anything he can. Forget about guarding the bin (I weighed the lid down with a stack of magazines a day after he arrived), we had to hide all the shoes, ban him from all but one bedroom, and check on him every three seconds if he's in another room... That's also the only time he shows almost guarding behaviour.


LydiaAF

Bin=trash can? I volunteer for a beagle rescue in the US and we have a talk about trash cans with every person. This is specifically a beagle thing! We personally don't have any issues when we are home. Neither of our beagles would invade right in front of us. We have to move our trash can to the bathroom and close the door when we leave the house. I know other people who downsize the can and put it in the cabinets or pantry. Some say the locking trash cans work, but my beags have always been able to find a way in. They are very persistent. Definitely keeping the shoes hidden is a must with a pup. One thing that may help is if you get him his own irresistible chews to keep him busy if you need to focus on another task. We do Kongs and put peanut butter or the Kong cheese spray in the middle. Our rescue doesn't recommend rawhides because they can aggravate tummies. I have gotten pig ears before, which my dogs love, but they don't distract them for nearly as long. You can also start crate training him and stick him in a crate for short times with a busy toy.


nnaoam

Correct! He just waits until we look the other way typically. Weighing the lid down worked a charm actually - it's not too inconvenient (though it would be easier if it wasn't loose magazines) and he can't lift the lid up whatsoever (though he still tries, so if the bin is overflowing he would still be able to get something from the edge). I can't imagine leaving him alone in the house right now - just leaving him alone in a room can mean he eats something he shouldn't... I've been eyeing up Kongs. I've read that beagles need the black ones or they'll destroy them, has that been your experience? I'm also considering their rope-filled stuffed animals, because he both tries to eat the stuffing which is really bad for him, and he seems to get frustrated whenever he can't grab onto a stuffed animal's limb. What are the benefits of crate training? I keep seeing it around but I can't seem to figure out the goal.


LydiaAF

I think our Kong is red? We havent had any issues but if he is a powerful chewer, I would just get whatever is strongest. Our beagles haven't eaten the stuffing, but I know they do have soft toys they can rip apart that don't have stuffing. Our favorite are the ones from Barkbox. They have ones that have a toy within a toy with no or minimal stuffing. We have been through many Consuelas, which are the cactus ones. Crate training has a lot of benefits. It gives dogs a safe space that is their own where they are comfortable and don't have the ability to tear apart furniture or whatever bad behaviors they have. With beagles, crate training can be hard at first because they are so VOCAL. They will not like it at first and will let you know! But a lot of our foster homes crate train and adoptees continue it because there are so many benefits.


nnaoam

He is not really vocal at all, and never with us! He doesn't make any sound at us above a quiet whine or half-growl. He does bark at other dogs and at delivery people though. He's eaten stuffing, mostly because he eats everything. I might try the red one and see if it works because it's easier to get here in the UK through Amazon.


LydiaAF

You are lucky! That is my main issue with Charlie is that he goes NUTS when he is in the backyard and people wall by. He has the loudest bark I have ever encountered.

Spray shoes with perfume- it tastes bad. Not a perfect solution but might be worth a shot.


kkelly18

We have our first beagle too! She's now 7 months old. She was QUITE the handful as a baby. But she is really coming into her own. She is stubborn which is natural for beagles lol. But she's very smart. And her nose is incredible! I'd recommend a snuffle mat. Pour some of his kibble or treats in there and he'll have so much fun using his nose! Our beagle also LOVES marrow bones and ice cubes and frozen strawberries and blueberries! Teaching him some commands and tricks will get him using his head too which will tire him out. If you have a fenced in yard, our beagle just LOVES and lives for sniffing and sniffing all the squirrels that have passed through. We are trying to teach her find it games too. I have discovered that beagles are like no other dog I've had. They are nose oriented and stubborn but as others have said, the love and affection she shows sometimes is amazing. She will literally come over and just plop down on us and want cuddles. Good luck!


nnaoam

Oh my god, the plopping down on us thing melts us every time. He'll just walk up to you and lie down on your lap. It's the cutest thing I've ever seen. His favourite thing in the garden seems to be sunbathing, but in the evening he tends to try to follow some trails! We're a bit suspicious some foxes are still getting in at night despite us securing the garden for Duke (and then securing it again when he obviously escaped without issue), but he seems to enjoy tracking their scents. (Before Duke, most springs we'd get fox cubs! There was a massive litter of five to one mum this year. They're unbelievably cute, and luckily still scared of humans).


kkelly18

Oh my goodness!! That must've been so cool to experience! We had a fox wandering around the neighborhood earlier this summer/spring. I'd see it in the early morning and thought she was so pretty. Duke is very cute and I am sure he'll settle down and give you a break (I hope!) Good luck!


Amhranai930

He sure looks like a pure beagle to me. I also rescued a beagle who we quickly learned was completely deaf on top of never having any kind of training whatsoever. The first several months were really rough. You're on the right track with using a harness and your rule of no retractable. For a lot of beagles, the nose rules and the chase instinct overpowers almost everything else. I agree with a lot of the comments so far and will say that lots of walks are good. We did lots of training together even once he was pretty well trained since it was something we did together, engaged his mind and included the occasional high value treat. If you're concerned about things like "leave it" or recall (things some beagles really struggle with) I'd recommend a vibration collar, it doesn't hurt at all, just gives a gentle vibration against their necks that can distract just long enough for the "leave it" or recall to break the smell or chase focus. Beagle noses are amazing and pretty powerfully distracting for them. If Duke's a digger, you can build him a small raised bed as his special place to dig. Hide treats in there, especially in the beginning and any time you catch him digging in places he shouldn't, just redirect him to his special dig place until he gets the hang of it. Good luck to you and your handsome boy!


nnaoam

How did you figure out he was deaf? I'm slightly suspicious he has hearing issues but I'm not sure and I'm probably being paranoid not having had a dog in ten years... He's more of a thief than a digger for now, but I might try to redirect him like you suggested! He definitely had no training before this point either, he's barely even house-trained.


Amhranai930

We noticed that he would startle a bit if we unintentionally snuck up on him when he was distracted. He also didn't react at all to our voices, but would give big wide beagly smiles when he would see us and immediately come to us. We then took him to our vet who took a look and confirmed it for us. I learned sign language so I could communicate better with him and we joined a puppy training class (he was about 15 at the time and had a blast playing with all the puppies). Many, many hot dogs were sacrificed to learning "watch me" and once we cleared that hurdle it starting getting easier as he learned I was interested in interacting with him and was interested in him and what he wanted, etc. If you think Duke might have trouble hearing and it isn't just selective hearing have a visit with your vet, they may be able to help you confirm and offer advice. Good luck and remember beagles can be tough, but are so worth it. My guy lived to be 19.5 years old and to the very end we were always learning new signs and finding fun things to do together. Good luck!


RocPharm93

I’ve got a beagle/lab mix, looks like a beagle but acts like a lab, perfect mix. But what I can tell you is that nose work is one of the most stimulating things you can do for him. Walks can be difficult with their drive to smell everywhere, but just remember that this is about as stimulating as anything, so be patient and let them do their thing (within reason)… also makes for great indoor stimulation by doing different games and challenges that involve new smells and hide and seek style games. Allowing your little beagle the freedom to explore with their nose will make for an awesome companion going forward (just remember, off leash they will track a scent and ignore you, be careful)


thelaineybelle

Oh my goodness he looks so much like my boy Hunter!! Beagles are stubborn, lovable little guys and are motivated through their nose. They love to be outside and allowed to let their nose guide the way. If you think you're gonna get a vigorous walk with a beagle, haha! They start and stop and track stuff. Give them plenty of treats to keep them engaged, but gotta be healthy stuff. My boy loved salt free canned green beans for treats. Guard your trash cans because those are prime territory. In fact, anything scented below 3 ft elevation is fair game for them to eat. Hunter could get stuff off the counter. He once got into the dining room buffet (there was a chair next to it) and put down a punch bowl full of spiked egg nog. He had a puking hangover the next day. Keep em bathed, they love rolling in stinky stuff. They have an instinct to corner or tree other critters. Racoons, possums, cats, etc. If they get one in such a position, praise your beagle for doing a good job and then get away from the other critter. They can be food defensive, separate bowls are must. But besides that, they are super chill and very approachable dudes. The beagle baying is very loud and I don't recommend beagles for apartments or communal living. Make sure they don't disturb your neighbors. Overall great dogs and a real asset to any home 🤗💕


nnaoam

...only 3 feet? No joke, Duke can leap far enough to get things from the back of the counter if he wants to and he sees that nobody's around. He can also jump onto the dining table (which we found out after unsuccessfully trying to prevent him from getting up there by tucking all the chairs in at all times).


thelaineybelle

When they're young like this, they are suprisingly spry! As he got older he enlisted the help of my boyfriend's Min Pin (who coincidentally was named Duke). Duke would jump on Hunter's back and then into the counter, he would knock some off for Hunter. One time they got lobster and steak off the counter! They ate $100 worth of food before we caught them! What a good boy, you're very lucky 🤗


cc-scheidel-33

he's a treasure! don't let him go!!


CarsonHurysz

He NEEDS to RUN


nnaoam

Worry not - he gets plenty of running between zoomies in the garden and running away from us with whatever item he's stolen now


CarsonHurysz

Lol I have spent many hours chasing my beagle through the woods. I’ve given up chasing him at this point, he always comes back. He knows where he’s fed and loved!


nnaoam

The issue is whether whatever thing he's taken will make it too lol - most recently, an economics book...


True-Bee1903

I wouldn't question him being full Beagle.By looks and characteristics 🤣 He's handsome.My only advice is try and be firm,dont let him walk all over you,but with a face like that it won't be easy.Wish you and him all the best.


mavenesquevixen

Have you tried trading with him when he steals objects? I taught mine “trade!” And would only give a high value toy that was kept up for these specific moments. Those long stuff-less animal toys are great for this, especially if you take it outside and let it get all smelly 😅 Typically works like a charm and after about 20 minutes, I take it away to keep its value.


nnaoam

That's what we do right now. His favourite toy of all time (which is still mostly in one piece) is an empty coke bottle (without the lid or label), and it usually does the job. He does tend to destroy things very quickly though.


AgathaM

Consistency in training is key. He will get better at behaving. They are mischievous and smart so you will have to figure out ways to prevent what you don’t want them to do. Then they find new things to do. Then they turn into nothing but slugs that eat and sleep and snuggle. :)


ILuvPupsters

Omg he is so handsome and I screenshot the pic of him hugging other dog bc it’s so sweet…I know I’m a creepy dog stalker lolool. I really wish I could have a dog. I think he is pure beagle. U could do a dna test lol. I’m the type I’ll never do one, but I would do for dog loloool.


nnaoam

Haha it's one of my favourite pictures too. He does that with my mum now. I doubt we'll do a DNA test (we don't care enough tbh) so we'll just leave it a guess lol


ejabno

"Peste" lmao that got me. He sounds like he's gonna be such a really good boy who is pain in the ass


frigoffrachel

no advice because I currently have a “little nightmare boy” myself who is half beagle and half pug, but just wanted to tell you I got a chuckle out of his nicknames (while I type this, he is trying to take down my much larger dog to hump). best of luck with cutie man Duke.


lawyersguns_money

Oh my gosh, oh my gosh! I believe we rescued his long lost brother (George) whom we endearing call Beelzebub.

- Frequent exercise - Enroll in training classes and practice every day- they are working dogs and like the mental stimulation from training. - Interactive/puzzle feeders


mexican2554

Mine loved going out to the field and sniffing out birds when we could go hunt. When i moved back to the city and where there's almost no where to hunt, i noticed him stalking the birds around upland season. So i got his old training dummy out, rubbed some scent on it, let him sniff it, get him excited, and then keep him inside while I drag and hide the dummy somewhere in the yard. He would run out baying like some hell hound trying to track it. Would do this for 30- to 60 minutes. He'd be pooped and take a nice hound nap afterwards.


Pitiful_Pickle524

Beagles are sweet loving dogs you shouldn’t have a problem with him


shadiesel12

Oh yeah that boy is 100% beagle. Take lots of walks. The more things to smell the better. Hikes are a favorite beagle past time
