Owner's comments : We are heartbroken but we need to find a new home for our boy. We have tried everything we are capable of but we feel we cannot give him what he needs and he's punishing us for it.

He destroys everything that's not basically metal and he'd still have a go at doing so. He's so great with kids our boys are 5 and 7. We have had beagles as kids ourselves and we believe an animal is for life so this is killing us and we were aware what we were in for with a beagle but feel as though its not fair on Scooby.

Besides Scooby's barking & destructiveness he is a beautiful, affectionate dog who is dearly loved & adored.

We are a young family with 3 children who have tried our hardest with Scooby & having had beagles as kids ourselves we knew what we were in for but Scooby has exceeded this.

We cannot afford to keep replacing & repairing everything in our home & just want the best for Scooby.
