Buddy is either the largest tri-color beagle ever or something else. Someone suggested walker coonhound to me, or a beagle-hound mix? He's about 45 lbs, muscular and much taller than a regular beagle. His head is fairly proportionate to his body, perhaps just a wee bit smaller. Shorter snout than my lab mix. He "speaks" to us with lots of cute & funny vocalizations from begging to expressing displeasure. Occassionally, he does the beagle baying, but not nearly as often as i hear about from other beagle owners.
This is my 1st post, and I'm not sure where or how to submit pix. But I have a number I'm sure would help.
Thanks a lot for any input you may have!
