Puppy Pickin

Any tips? I'm going to go check out some 3 week old beagle pups soon. The two I've already had were both 2 years old, so this is new to me. I hope to hunt over the pup, but it's more important to me that the dog is sociable and likes kids, which, since we are talking about a beagle here, shouldn't be a problem. I realize that a beagle pup is a whirlwind, but I am prepared since I already know how awesome the breed is.

We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.

Re: Puppy Pickin

I don't have any advice for picking a pup, other than make sure it comes from a good bloodline. It will make the training for hunting over it much easier. I normally just close my eyes and grab a pup, hasn't let me down yet.

Re: Puppy Pickin

I don't have any good advice either, hard to tell what they will make at that age. I had mt wife pick my last pup, when my daughter is old enough i will let her do it.

Re: Puppy Pickin

I don't know. The pup is free. They are from my brother in laws brother. Both parents are good hunters, because this guy would not have a dog that won't hunt. There were 8 in the litter. Mom is on site, of course. Dad wasn't. 4 Tri color and 4 Blue tick.

Re: Puppy Pickin

At 3 weeks if I had to make a choice, it would be based on color alone and I would take the bluetick over tri-color everyday. If I am looking at older pups, I let them choose me...
