Hey everyone. New to the forums and excited about learning more about dog ownership. I am going to be straight forward, I have never owned a dog of my own before, but now have the opportunity as I am looking now for dog friendly housing to move to in the next month and whatnot. I also already know that I will be adopting a Beagle/Portuguese Podengo Pequeno from a good friend of mines father who runs a small farm.
We know it will be male and that he will be coming home to us in June 2012.
What I am really curious about are experiences with these breeds temperaments either separately or combined and what are some of the best training methods for once again either separately or mixed. I have read up that the Portuguese half is very trainable while the Beagle half can be more...distracted by scents and whatnot.
Thank you for advice ahead of time
I look forward to information!
