  • Animals Best Friends: Gentle beagles, hounds make good pets

  • A friend of mine adopted a beagle named Domino almost two years ago. He has two young girls, one of whom is autistic. Life can be a challenge at times for him, but he has a good heart and takes things in stride.

  • A friend of mine adopted a beagle named Domino almost two years ago. He has two young girls, one of whom is autistic. Life can be a challenge at times for him, but he has a good heart and takes things in stride.
    I asked him last week how Domino was doing. “Great!” he said. “I hate to brag, but Domino is the best dog!” He went on to say how well Domino does with his autistic daughter and that Domino just fits in perfectly with his family. My friend said that Domino was simply the best!
    Beagles and most hounds are known for being gentle spirits. They are playful and love their humans as much as their walks when they pick up scents. Animals Best Friends have two wonderful hounds that are looking for their forever homes.
    Paige is such a pretty girl. She is a medium-sized beagle/hound mix who is three years old. She lives in a foster home and has learned to ring a bell when she needs to go outside. She can be a little shy at times, but has a sweet disposition and loves people of all ages. Paige plays well with other dogs and happily shares her toys. She has not been around cats. ABF would prefer placing Paige in a home with a tall fence.
    Noel is the newest beagle rescue at ABF. She is only eight months old. Noel has a pretty light brown coat with white accents. She is very playful and dearly loves her toys. Noel plays well with other dogs and likes everyone she meets. She is crate trained and is working on her house training. ABF prefers placing her in a home without very small children.
