    Mike... so sorry to hear this. I know how horrible that can be and how it can so destroy your own enjoyment of being in your own home.

    Perhaps there is some legal recourse? Are there any laws, codes, covenants, or restrictions in your community that you might resort to?

    I am a big time dog lover, and have two great dogs, but I would never allow this kind of disrespect to my neighbors.

    Oh - I’ve been reassigned.

    My wife has notified me that this is no longer a project I’m involved in so - thanks everybody for their suggestions/comments.

    I have lived in Portland for a few decades and "woke vegans" are totally annoying. I bet she doesn't want to discipline the dog because it would taint the critter's experience. Maybe she should consider feeding the dog some meat. I am glad I have no neighbors with loud mangy cur. Hopefully your situation doesn't become like this scene from A Christmas Story:

    It's not about the dog,.. it's about inconsiderate dog owners.

    Probably means that the dog is a vegan as well

    I know nothing about your ordinances, but here we have two that apply. There is a dog barking ordinance and there is also a general noise ordinance requiring that noise not travel beyond a persons property lines

    Find out about the ordinances in your area.

    Also, be aware, you may not have the legal right to record a conversation with an individual without their permission.

    Actually the best recourse for you is to simply call your animal control office. They deal with this all the time...All the time. They will tell you your rights and the best way to handle the situation.

    Beagles are the worst. When I was still an apartment dweller I had downstairs neighbors with one. They would leave on overnight trips and I had to hear that stupid mutt all day and all night. They are not quiet dogs.

    The dog probably has severe separation anxiety/general anxiety.

    Pain will not lessen that. A trip to the vet and anxiety/depression meds might. Could be an opportunity to help her out/bond. Tell her you read that level of arousal (hey now) in a canine is a symptom and ask her if she’s discussed behavior with the vet.

    You think she wants a nonstop piercing barker? She wants a happy dog and peaceful home.

    People who adopt rescues, especially twice abandoned rescues, feel a responsibility not to abandon the dog again. So she may feel stuck.

    Maybe you can help her and the dog out. And she may be more receptive to treating a medical issue than getting blamed for a behavioral one.

    I know about beagles. My dad was a serious amateur breeder and we would have 50+ beagles at a time. Many AKC field champions.
    We lived in town, the dogs lived on some rented property out in the country.
    People happy, dogs happy with plenty of room to run around.

    Call animal control. There should be ordinances that cover the barking.

    I REALLY empathize, Mike. I've been there, where a neighbor's dog barked ALL NIGHT, right outside my bedroom. After a few sleep-deprived nights, you start thinking irrationally.
    This is why I will never have a "doggy door".....I don't want any dog of mine to have free run to go out and disturb neighbors. I love dogs, and can tolerate a lot, but everyone has a breaking point.
    And....FWIW, my dear, departed Daisy was a Beagle/Dachshund mix....the sweetest dog I ever owned, and she was never a "barker".....except when strangers approached. And then, if the person was OK with me, she completely stopped.

    mIke eskimo, I love you man. I feel it. I had to dog sit a beagle once... oh man.

    and the neighbor... yep. I am related to some of those folk and they are unwittingly (or wittingly) annoying in that they need you to know their wokeness and rightness... yum!

    your best bet---> yep. move to the country. it is the only sure thing... just do it.
