Two very important members of the Ferry household are our rescued purebred Beagles. Both of them are male, purebred (but "fixed" upon rescue), and both are now brothers. They have their own unique personalities (Buddy, the older boy, is sweet, affectionate, not too rambunctious but very protective of me and the kids; Diogi, the younger boy, is very energetic, almost hyper, loveable, probably has Doggy ADD, and loves to play with the kids a lot). Not sure which one barks the most, but Buddy and Diogi are tried and true members of the Ferry Family, good protectors, loyal and loveable, and LOUD. We love our Beagle brothers. They are Beagle brothers from different mothers.
