The Beagle has a strong head and floppy ears. The dog has a short-haired coat and many color variations can occur. The most prevalent is the tricolor Beagle with its black saddle, but lemon, black and tan, orange, or red and white are all acceptable. History: The Beagle rose from the anonymous ranks of ‘hound-dom’ in the 1500s in England. Packs of dogs were used at the time to hunt small game such as rabbits and pheasants. The Harrier, which is not only taller than the Beagle, but weighs almost twice as much, provided the foundation stock for the Beagle.
Originally, Beagles were used by people who would be unable to follow a hunting pack in the usual headlong manner. The infirm or elderly were able to ride at a leisurely pace, and the Beagle provided hunting opportunities for those who had no horses. The dogs could be followed on foot. This is the way Beagles are used today for hunting. The French word “be’guele” is probably the source of the dog’s name and referred to the sound of the hunting bay. Temperament: The disposition of the Beagle is famously good. These dogs are cheerful and gentle. Beagles are intelligent and brave dogs and get along well with other dogs. They can be trusted to behave beautifully with children. However, as they are hunting dogs, it is best to accustom them to any household cats or other pets while they are puppies. Beagles are usually difficult to train as they are easily distracted by interesting smells or sights. The Beagle loves to wander, and if the owner is not a hunter, every effort should be make to stimulate him at home. A fenced yard is the best way to assure the Beagle’s safety.
Health Issues: Fortunately, the Beagle is seldom afflicted with hip dysplasia, but they make be subject to spinal disk ailments. Epilepsy is somewhat common in Beagles as are eye and heart diseases. Because Beagles often roam in fields and brush, they should be checked carefully for ticks and fleas. Ticks can spread Lyme Disease and Tracker Dog Disease. The Beagle will normally live for up to 15 years.
Grooming: The Beagle’s short coat does not require extensive care, one brushing a week is adequate to keep shedding under control. The floppy ears can give rise to ear infections, so care should be given to keep them clean and dry.
Living Conditions: The Beagle loves to be outside, preferably with human or dog friends, but will be happy indoors if given adequate exercise. Beagles are companionable and like to be around others. The Beagle is best kept in the house during the winter in northern climates, although a well-made dog house will suffice in warmer areas.
