The Complete Idiot's Guide to Beagles (Lifestyle Paperback) by Kim Campbell Thornton

Amazon reviewer states "In adopting our rescue Beagle, Lucy, earlier this year, I needed a good reference book, giving me the history & care material necessary for understanding & working with a Beagle—this was my winner! I perused, read through, and really 'reviewed' several books at my local libraries, and decided upon this one as the best to put in my reference library at home. Not only is it very informative, to the point, and full of great advice and tips on getting to know your Beagle, it does not focus too heavily on the show aspect of a Beagle."
