Beagle breed description
The beagle is a member of the scent hound family. It looks similar to the foxhound but more compact.
The beagle was bred mostly for hunting hares. Beagles have a great sense of smell and can track well. That is why people use them as detection dogs to find things that are not allowed in different places. They are also popular pets because they are a good size, have a good temper, and do not have many health problems that they could pass on to their puppies.
The beagle breed we know today was created in Great Britain in the 1830s. It was made by combining several other breed dogs, including the North Country Beagle, the Talbot Hound, the Southern Hound, and possibly the Harrier.
Beagles have existed in popular culture since the time of Elizabeth I. They have been in paintings and books. More recently, you can see them in movies, TV shows, and comic books.
