|Sonny is half Beagle on the outside, all Beagle on the inside. And hunting Beagle at that. All Beagles are not the same and there are other things to consider aside from house keeping.
Beagles don't like to be alone. You either get two, or select another breed. They are intellegent but also pushy and have what I call a unique spin on training. They are food driven and can become fat if you aren't careful. They can be noisy and are not good in apartments for that reason.
Remember Snoopy? The dance and the vulture? Bringing his dish in for a fill? I had no idea Schultz wasn't joking, those are typical Beagle behaviors.
Sonny isn't stinky all the time, but he does have the oily gland stink once in a while. My sister's neighbor has a male and female, the female is more relaxed and not smelly at all. She is also much quieter than her male.
Shedding is not bad. On a scale to German Shepherd being a 10 and a poodle being a 1 , Sonny is the lesser of the three dogs at a 4. I blame his Golden Retriever side, otherwise he might be a 2.
