Beagles

The term ‘puppy dog eyes’ could have been coined just to describe the loveable Beagle, who can melt a heart with one pleading look.

Bringing home a Beagle? Here's what you need to know!

In brief:

  • Requires regular and consistent training
  • Can be anxious and destructive if bored and alone
  • Adores human company and affection

Origins

The modern breed of Beagle was developed in the UK and is the result of various breeds, including the North Country Beagle and the Talbot Hound. Beagle-type dogs have existed in Europe for over 2000 years, making fond household pets as well as sniffer dogs. They were originally bred as hunting and tracking dogs by the ancient Greek

Personality, characteristics and temperament

The term 'puppy dog eyes' could have been coined just to describe the loveable Beagle, who can melt a heart with one pleading look. While the eyes are one of this breed's best features, floppy ears, a muscular build and short, slightly curved tails with white tips make them look extra huggable. Beagles are even tempered and have a gentle disposition, making them great pets. They can be difficult to train and have a tendency to follow their noses, wherever they might take them.

Health and Care

Beagles can live from 10-15 years, although they do need company in order to feel safe and stress-free. They need lots of exercise to avoid obesity.

Conclusion

Beagles love children and will match their boundless energy and join in any outdoor pursuits with gusto. However, this is a dog prone to severe separation anxiety and does not do well without human or animal company. It's not the breed for you if you spend long periods of time away from the home.
