Beaglie is Beaglie and knows how to use it. He has his nose to the ground and can howl at the same time. I must admit he must feel restricted by the fence. It's not that he would run away it's that he would not be looking where he was going when he went to wherever his nose leads him. The only thing Beaglie loves more than the hunt is eating whatever it is that hits the floor.
Beaglie was probably born in 1994 though he was not a growing puppy when we got him.
