Well, I was looking for an adult beagle to go with my male and she just arived today and I can't wait to see her run! However, we didn't buy her on the blind. A buddy of mine who runs beagles went and checked her out for me. He said she's a sparkplug and can flat out, run the tail off a rabbit. Plus, she gets into the nastiest stuff out there which is what I always look for in our hunting dogs. Anyway, I threw together a quick pedigree and was just wondering if anyone could fill me in a little on some of the dogs. I know the big named Branko dogs like Prop, Copper Boy, Lumberjack and Jack of all Trades but not too many of the rest. I especially haven't heard much on her sire IFC Branko's Warlock either. Any info or opinions on the pedigree would be GREATLY appreciated. It doesn't really matter to me but I always like to know as much as I can about the dogs I run. Thanks!

Your Pedigree sounds wonderful, many of the dogs in it are Canadian FC's like Close Call Girl and Great Nada and others in the Pedigree. I have seen many dogs out of Warlock placing in trials, I heard he put out some really good offspring like himself. Just take the time to let her get to know you and enjoy every minute of her. Have fun!!!

So far this one is the best listening beagle we've had. I agree with the rabbit hunting machine comment though. She goes all day and doesn't know what quit means.

I will only say that IMO, genetics only plays a part in getting a good dog. Training and individual personality play a bigger role, just like in humans. Sidney Crosby and Linsay Vonn could make a baby in Vancouver this week, but that does not assure that the child will be an Olympic performer. A good trainer can make a genetically bad dog acceptable, but a poor trainer can ruin even champion blooded dogs.
