A Beagle is a medium sized dog breed and a member of the hound group, similar in appearance to a Foxhound but smaller with shorter legs, and with longer, softer ears. Beagles are scent hounds used primarily for tracking deer, bear, and other game. Beagle-type dogs have existed for over 5 centuries, but the breed as popularly known was developed in the United Kingdom about 150 years ago.
The Beagle has a very good temper and gentle disposition. Beagles are intelligent Females tend to be less aggressive before their first heat cycle, but afterwards are protective of their puppies and families. They also get along with other dogs and people, provided that they have been socialized correctly by remaining with their siblings until 6 weeks of age. Being scent hounds, if released, beagles may occassionally follow a scent(having tags or a microchip implanted helps prevent permanent loss). Beagles are pack animals, and can be prone to separation anxiety. A common misconception is that all Beagles howl incessantly. In reality, most bark only on rare occassions. Puppies also will yelp if not fed when they are hungry. However, if a beagle barks too much, it is probably because it is not often corrected, and can take on the assumption that that type of behaviour is acceptable. The breed has thousands of representatives and each has his or her own personality. Over all, the beagle is one man's most amiable companions. Visit Wikipedia.org: Beagle for more info.
