Adorable, friendly little fellows, Beagles are beloved dogs around the world. Currently they are the 5th most popular breed in the United States. Beagles are excellent companions and very friendly, happy-go-lucky pals.
For being such a popular dog, is it strange to hear that their origins are not documented. We do know they were used as hunting dogs in England around the mid 1850s which explains why they love to sniff around and bay when they catch a good scent.
Beagles do require a good amount of exercise to stay content and well behaved. But their hygiene is superb: Beagles don’t drool, shed or have doggy odor. If you have kids or other dogs, definitely consider a Beagle – they make great family pets!
