The idea of having a pet in the house, a beagle dog, was initiated by Rishikanth, who is fond of pets. He sourced how a beagle could be adopted and applied for one at CUPA (Compassion Unlimited Plus Action), an NGO, which helps hundreds of animals.

Selection and socialization
We received invitation for adoption camp on June 11, 2016 at Hotel for Dogas, Muthanallur Cross behind circle, Sarjapur Main Road, Dommasandra, Bengaluru.

The place about 45km, we, Mom, Rishi, Lahari who is so fond of dogs and knows lot of information on dogs, reached the place by 1 pm. There were quite a few families who came for the same purpose and for interaction with CUPA Team, volunteers.  There were about 36-40 beagles in the age of 3 to 5 years, placed in the cage waiting for adoption. After a survey of all dogs, seeing appearence, activity one male beagle was selected to be adopted.

There was short familiarisation/socialization session with CUPA team, paper formalities were completed and the Beagle earlier called puppyLahari was renamed Seena/Seenu/Seeni.

Date of birth : 22April2012

Beagles are conviniently sized, handsome and easy-to-groom, friendly with people and peaceful with other pets. It has appealing soulful expression could be wonderful pets.

The most important thing about the Beagles is that it is scenthound. Its nose is the most important part of its anatomy and its head is always down to the ground, searching for an interesting trail to follow. Beagles have approximately 220 million scent receptors compared to the paltry 5 million or so in people, which makes them very good at picking up scents.

Lahari who came along with us, was so excited that she petting, caring for Seeni, as she calls it, and was giving full instructions about what are the things required, ways to look after etc etc.

BirthiMane, NammaBengaluru is now having a beagle pet dog "Seena" at home....
