4 weeks old? They SHOULD NOT leave until 8 weeks! 6 weeks is too early!! Please tell your friend that. Puppies need the socialization the litter provides to grow up to be healthy, sound dogs. In some areas it is ILLEGAL to sell puppies younger than 8 weeks of age. I'm not sure about VA though.
And why did your friend breed beagle mix puppies anyways? We have way too many beagles and beagle mixes dying in shelters as it is. My rescue alone has 5 beagles and a few beagle mixes looking for homes right now.
