My wife just sent this to me. I'm not sure how much of it is / isn't true, but I thought I'd ask anyway since the wife and I discussed getting a beagle: Alza Corporation, a Johnson & Johnson Company is closing their Mountain View facility. The animal test facility has 40, 16 month old beagle puppies that DESPERATELY need good loving homes. These dogs were NEVER tested. If you know of anyone, a rescue* or *are interested in helping give these puppies homes, please contact Rick Bible at email@example.com The facility manager will have to put them to sleep if no homes are found by *OCTOBER 15TH*!! http://network.bestfriends.org/News.../ArchiveList.aspx?month=10&year=2007&gu=&pg=1 So, what do ya'll know about beagles? Remember, Alana is allergic to dogs but we hear Beagles are hypoallergenic. How are their personalities? Use Yellow Labs as a baseline (my favorite dog and what I've had all my life). Are beagles friendly, smart, good with kids, etc?
