I have always loved dogs. As a child I had a beagle. He had been a test dog for the first year of his life and was afraid when we first got him. He was very sweet but was food aggressive. I think the food aggression may have been caused by how he and the other dogs were treated when they were tested on. He was llike part of the family. He passed away in 2010. I always miss him. I would love to get another dog one day.
