Some information on Beagle hound breed
Origin of Beagle dogs
It is believed that Beagles have existed for at least 2,400 years. The Beagle existence could be traced in Ancient Greece documents around 400 BC. Despite of their very long existence history, Beagles had to wait until 19th century (the golden time for noble sports, including hunting) to become popular in Europe.
Also in the beginning of 19th century, Beagles immigrated to America and quickly become one of the most popular hound breeds. Until 1940-1950 period, Beagles have reached their development peak in America since they own significantly stronger physical power and faster speed compared with other small dogs. Hence, they were usually selected to participate in dog sports which were very popular during this period. Nowadays, Beagles have been popularly raised as pets in all regions in the world. There are just a few cases in England or America that are raised for hunting purpose.
Beagles are usually small. A mature Beagle is usually around 30-40 cm high and weighs between 7 and 11kg. They have a domed skull with strong, powerful, and well-developed muscles which in turns help them to have a remarkably fast speed. Their heads are at average size, but their muzzles are very big, their jaws are strong and teeth are very healthy and stable. They have significant big nose with very good sense of smell. In fact, Beagles have been ranked as one in top 10 dog breeds that have the most smell sensitivities.
Beagles have very short but silky fur, thus, it is very easy to clean and take care of them. The most popular color of Beagles is tricolor (white-black-yellow or light brown). In addition, Beagles also have other colors such as black, yellow brown, red brown, white brown, white yellow etc. Beagles have very special barking voice, which could be easily differentiate with other dog breeds’. They have the habit of howling (like wolves) and they will howl for a very long duration whenever they discover a strange smell or when they are to be on guards (in anytime during the day).
Beagle is considered as a dog breed that is very active, playful, curious, and likes discovering. They hate to be alone. When they are alone in their houses for a very long time, they usually become naughty and try to find ways to escape. Beagle is also a friendly, sentimental yet stubborn dog breed. Thus, the Beagle trainings require a lot of patience and need to be done when they are still puppies. Beagles enjoy running, playing and dislike narrow spaces.
