Introducing: Mosh

Hello, my name is Emilie, i live in the UK, i own 2 dogs, Mosh a Beagle and Mathilda, a British Bulldog. I joined the community bulldogfanz yesterday and found this one for beagles today , so i am posting a story here too...

Mosh is my husband Steve and I's first dog, we lived in London for years and then decided to move out to the countryside...for work reasons and so we could have a dog... we decided on a Beagle because of the obvious cuteness and little did we know how hard work those dogs are...

We browsed on the internet to find a Beagle breeder near us, as we both didn't drive at the time, we could not go far and we could not afford the £850 that a pure bred Beagle puppy cost but we found one on the internet... he was in a pet shop in Sutton, London and we asked the pet shop owner to send us a pic of him... well we were smitten and i travelled to London by train to go and pick him up... when i got to the pet shop, he was the only Beagle puppy there, he was sleeping and was looking so lost and frail there was no way i could not take him home... I'll always remember how small he was (12 weeks old) , the pet shop guy went to get him and i swear i almost cried when he gave him to me, i was so happy, and that puppy looked so sad and helpless, i swore i was going to take care of him properly... took him home on the train in a wicker basket and his new life with us started...

My husband Steve had never had a dog before whereas i had had dogs all my life from birth... it was a new thing for Steve and he did a wonderful job... we found out Mosh came from a puppy mill in Ireland, to this day we can't trace his origin and i know it was the wrong thing to do now but i simply could not leave him in that shop he would not have made it... Mosh came to us with health problems, he was pooing blood and mucus, had kennel cough and was really poorly... We got him insured and after many trips to the vet, he was on his feet, healthy and causing havoc in our life...chewing everything, stealing socks and underwear, being a naughty little puppy that we didn't have the heart to tell off, he was spoilt from day one and we love him to bits... he is now 2 and a half years old and i LOVE this dog so much i cant imagine life without him... he sleeps with us in our room, loves getting under the covers to lick our feet and have cuddles in the morning, he loves me to bits and cries when i leave the house, what can i say? he is a treasure...

here are a few pics of his life:


That's him at 12 weeks old when he came home with me...

 i was fortunate enough to be working from home when he was a pup so i spent all my time with him...

 With his "girlfriend" Lola, we have started a Beagle trend in our village...

Enjoy!!! XX
