A sturdy hunting dog, the Beagle looks like a miniature foxhound. Its hunting ability, combined with a merry personality, has made the Beagle one of the most popular dogs in the United States, according to AKC Registration Statistics. The most famous Beagle of all is Snoopy from the comic strip Peanuts. Today’s Beagle comes in two height varieties (13 in. and 15 in.) and any true hound color, including tricolor, of red and white and lemon.


        The Beagle’s history can be traced back to Ancient Greece. Beagles have had a variety of uses since the inception of the breed. Today, you can find Beagles as companions, therapy, hunting, search and rescue, and detection of various substances for law enforcement agencies.
