The Beagle is most famous as Snoopy in the “Peanuts” comics and is one of America’s most popular dogs. He’s a good hunter and looks like a miniature foxhound. In the 1500s, the Beagle was used in England for chasing rabbits and the name is supposedly derived from the French word “be’geule” which describes the Beagle’s baying sound when chasing game.
Beagles make great pets. They’re easy to look after and love the company of people and other animals. They can also be very mischievous, especially when following scents. They have two varieties of height. One is 13 inches and the other is 15 inches. They can be any hound colour, including lemon, white and red and tri-colour.
