My cousin has a young one, after the older beagle he had passed a few years ago. They got Charlie from a rescue agency in Houston; he had been rehomed twice. My family lived with my cousin, his wife and 3 dogs ( Charlie and 2 older females who were mutts) for about 6 months. I really enjoyed playing with him, wrestling on the floor and playing tug of war with his rope toys. I'd love to have a dog now, but don't really have the budget for a pet as well as an old truck. But it's neat seeing the different dogs many of my neighbors in the trailer park have.
