We have a beagle that we rescued last year from a trash dump at the river and she and my bassets get along fine. She prefers our Golden retriever and she is a wonderful dog. I told my husband if he let me bring her home I would find her a good home, well that was 8 months ago so I think safe to say she is here to stay. I have a friend at work that had her beagle puppy flown and he did great. Good Luck!!!
