Once used as a hunting companion by English gentlemen in the 1500s, the Beagle is a friendly and cheerful family companion
Beagles are affectionate, smart and energetic.
Beagles not only have an adorable face, but they are also generally loving and loveable, happy and companionable, making them great family dogs.
The Beagle is an intelligent pack dog who loves the company of other dogs and people. In fact, it was bred to work in packs, so they are happiest when they have company. A Beagle left alone for too long may get restless and destructive.
Although energetic, your Beagle’s specific exercise needs will depend on their age and health. Over time, you’ll get to know your dog and whether they prefer lots of exercise or lounging on the couch. They are known to be escape artists, so watch them outside. When on walks, it’s important to keep him on a leash, as his instincts are to run off and track if he catches a compelling scent.

As trackers, they love to follow their nose and chase balls or their favourite people. They also love to play, so teaching tricks and playing games are always hit with this breed.
10 to 15 years
Beagles are commonly tri-colour (black, tan and white), but their coats also come in combinations of black, tan, red, white, brown, lemon, and blue.
The Beagle’s smooth, dense double coat gets heavier during the winter and sheds in the summer. They also shed moderately throughout the year.
Responsible breeders screen the Beagle breed for conditions like hip dysplasia, hypothyroidism, epilepsy, luxating patella and eye disorders.
