The breed's name is from 'bée guele', meaning 'open mouth' in French – perhaps a clue to this historic hunting hound and popular pet's love of vocalising!
Someone who loves the sound of their own voice – unless you get the recall nailed, you'll be calling your dog a lot!
Someone who wants a 'Velcro dog'. When they get the hint of an interesting sniff, your loving, devoted Beagle will quickly forget who you are!
Average size - could pick up if you had to in an emergency
Medium (About an hour)
Doesn't have to be a solid hour, you can give them lots of short walks.
Dogs that you mainly just need to polish! But be warned - short haired dogs moult all the time!
All canines drop some hair, think of it as dog glitter!
