The Beagle is a first class pet, but it has quite a bit of history as a
hunter. It hunted in Wales and France during the Renaissance, the beagle
was later acknowledged as the best hare dog out of all the small hounds.
Now in modern days, two or three Beagles are use together to hunt quails
and hares. Sometimes the Beagle is used in larger packs as it was in the
past. The Beagle is classified into two groups according to size in the
AKC. One irrespective of it is as a hunter or use as a showdog.
Body: The Beagle has a squarish
body with sloping shoulders;firm muscles; high set pendant ears; a moderately
long, wide, domed skull that is slightly rounded at the back; an angular
muzzle; a straight nose bridge; a black nose with big nostrils; and a high-set
tail that is carried gaily with a bit of a curve, but not curled forward.
The dense, short coat of the Beagle is smooth and glossy. It's coat is
white and tan with black (other hound colors are permissible).
Character: The Beagle is loving and gentle.
This responsible dog is also a good guard dog. Beagles love to explore
and often wander off, so a ID tag would be a good idea.
Care: The beagle should be massaged from head to tail once and awhile,
other than that no special coat care is needed. When bathed, a mild shampoo
should be used on it's coat.
Exercise: When this dog is going to be exercised it should take place on
a lead or in a large fenced area to keep the pup from wandering off.
Training: The Beagle may bark excessively
if left alone. Training can prevent this though. Beagles used as hunters
should be trained in a higher tone. Since the Beagles love to explore and
wander off, a collar and ID tag is appropriate.
Puppies: The average pups per litter is 5-7. Seventeen pups were recorded
once but is very unlikely to happen again. Mating Beagles of different
sizes can make delivery very hard.
