Breed Description

It's no surprise that one of the most beloved fictional dogs in America is Snoopy the Beagle. Your Beagle puppy will make an amusing and lively addition to the family. Bred for hunting, he'll thrive on daily exercise and being a member of your pack. Beagles are easy-going and friendly comedians, but they're also quick to follow their noses, which can lead to mischief. Give your Beagle pup lots of active play and you'll be rewarded with a loving and lovable pal.

History & Job

Origin: England

Year Recognized: 1885

Breed History & Job Description: There are reports of hounds being used to hunt in England even before the Romans arrived in 55 b.c. By the 1500s, most English gentlemen had packs of large hounds that tracked deer, and smaller hounds that tracked rabbits. The smaller, more compact hounds were the first Beagles. Today, there are two types of Beagles: those under 13 inches high, and those between 13 and 15 inches high. They come in many colors, including lemon, red and white, and tricolor.
