That's soo awesome you are adopting an "older" dog. Two years ago we adopted a 15 year old Jack Russell Terrier named Tug. He had TONS of issues but even aside from those, the insane process of adopting him, the constant and very large vet bills, and the fact he died a short year later didn't change my mind at all. He was one of the best dogs we have had the privledge of knowing. Good luck with the Beagle!
