my boy diesel as with most breeds poor breeding practices have ruined many good breeds
formerly known as good family dogs i have known many beagles that bit and were not good with kids at all
for good with kids labs tend to be good but you have to go based on individuals

honestly with a newborn in the house i would be hesitant to bring home any shelter dog

sourdough44 If they want a dog, here's one that would do. Sadly, Katy is not with us anymore. She was just as gentile as could be, just a wonderful dog.

While visiting relatives one asked me, 'where do I get a dog like this'? I said, you don't get a dog like this anywhere, you build a dog like this.

Cara Fusinato Have the rescue "trade" you a dog -- take this one back and she take another. A spot for a spot.

zyppi Yeah, the beagles I've known have had 'wandering' problems and have been kinda dumb, but never knew one to be aggressive.

I didn't advocate her having a dog at all but she was determined...

I've told her never to let her little ones alone with any dog.

I hope they'll find a home for him.

Think they're letting this trainer take him for a week while they look for a place or no kill rescue.

Think someday I'll get a suitable dog, housebreak and train around the children and then give them the pup.

SuperG JRTs have the heart of a lion they say....I believe it.

SuperG Beagles can be a handful for many.....

Probably some of the easiest pups to fall for however.......

Beagles are vocal dogs with a considerable amount of "energy" behind their "early alarm warning systems" general.

SunCzarina Shame on the rescue for placing this dog with a family with small children. They need to take this dog back, there is NO WAY they didn't know this dog had these kinds of issues.

I've only met one JRT who was cute and affectionate. My sister has 2 of them, I don't like my children around them. My kids are pre-teens, they've been teaching german shepherd puppies NO BITES since they were 3 and 5, I'm still apprehensive about those jacks. Especially the bitch!

zyppi Thanks all.

I'd vote to rehome him too, but finding a home is not so easy.

Seems every rescue here is full to the gills.

They simply don't need a dog at this stage in their lives.

Neither her husband or my daughter have time or experience.

Gretchen After growing up with a beagle and still having scars from his bites, and toys torn up and our dog raiding our garbage and the neighbors garbage, I would not recommend a beagle especially mixed with Jack Russell that barks continuously in my neighborhood, I would rehome the dog.

gsdsar I agree. Rehome the dog. The kids safety is more important. Not that resource guarding is not fixable, just don't think this is the right situation.
