I wanted to introduce myself and my Beagle boy Parker.

My husband and I adopted him last January, he was 7 months old. He was going to be dumped at the Humane Society. He was given to a university student as an unwanted gift from her boyfriend. We know very little of his history other than he had not been handled or socialized, and spent his life in a crate. He had not had any puppy shots, wasn't housetrained, and didn't know his name.

We never met his former owner, his adoption was facilitated by a co-worker of mine. We had never even seen him when we agreed to take him, and when I picked him up my heart completely melted. He is the most adorable beagle I've ever seen (although I might be biased ). He has gone from hating being touched and close to me, to a snuggler who makes me feel like I'm the most important thing in his life.

Training hasn't been completely easy with, but he's a fast learner. Luckily, he has never been destuctive or suffered from separation anxiety. We spend all our free time with him, and we are one happy pack! Parker is one of the best things that has ever happened to us, and we're so grateful we found him before he went to the humane society.

So that's Parker's story. I'm happy I've found this forum, I've learned alot from everyone here!

Welcome to the forum. I have a beagle also. Her name is Cassie and she will be 4 in August. She is very stubborn, but very loving. Your point:

He is very very cute I love the look beagles have when they put their head to the side, Cassie can get away with almost anything when she does that

Now that's a face you just want to kiss allover....Is there another dog behind him in the bigger picture. It looks like part of a tail and a leg

Everyone here is so nice! Thank you so much!

The dog in the background of that picture is Parker's best friend. We were dog sitting that weekend. He came from a rescue in Ohio - even though you can't see all of him, he's super cute!

Hunter's Owner: I agree, when they give you the tilted head, it melts your heart. Does Cassie tilt her head side to side when you talk to her??

Here's a picture of Parker and his buddy hanging out...

What a happy ending for Parker. So sad when people get pets as gifts that they don't want. Unfortunatly my pup was a gift (not my choice), but I was also looking (and ready) to adopt a dog at the time. A warm welcome to you and Parker!
