Buddy was actually a great dog which you may not think considering some of my ratings. I think the most important things however is training your dog well when he/she is young. Buddy was quite young when we got him and he hadn't been trained and we weren't necessarily able to train him. He socialized very easily but he had trouble getting on a bathroom schedule. On top of that, he was most definitely a barker. He would bark at every single thing that would come near the house which could have been great if properly trained.
He was a very lovable dog but needed a family that could spend a little bit more time with him. So I will say, if you get a beagle, make sure you can spend a good amount of time with them, take the time to train them, and you will be all set.
