About Beagle breed
Beagles are a compactly built dog, sturdy in appearance and are considered a small-sized hound. Beagles are very intelligent and show signs of great alertness. The head of a Beagle should be free of wrinkles and the coat should be short and dense in appearance. Beagles should be bold with signs of a lot of activity, determination and stamina. They were bred with the purpose of hunting so they have a fantastic sense of smell. The eyes are dark brown or hazel in color. You can tell a Beagle from their ears, which should be long and rounded at the tip, while reaching all the way to the nose. The nose should be broad and black in colour, while having wide nostrils. Beagles jaws should be strong with a perfect “scissor bite”, meaning the upper teeth should closely overlap the lower teeth. The tail is moderately long and sturdy and well covered in hair.
Country of origin
The Beagle comes from Great Britain and is said to have been bred from the Foxhound for the purpose of hunting hares with men on foot. During the times of Queen Elizabeth I and King Henry VIII there were Beagles that were small enough to be carried in hunter’s pockets! To this day, sometimes there are Beagles born that are called “pocket Beagles” because they are these smaller types.
The most common colour for Beagles is the tricolour which consists of black, white and tan. Beagles can also be blue, white and tan; badger, hare and lemon pied; lemon and white; red and white; tan and white; all white; or black and white.
The coat of a Beagle should be short and dense. Since Beagles were bred with the purpose of hunting, the coat should also be weatherproof. The Beagle is considered a moderate shedding dog breed. He has a short, thick, tightly packed coat. Some of the shedded hairs will fall back into the coat and some, of course, will fall out. It will be important to brush the coat on a regular basis to remove shedded hairs from the base and to brush off loose hairs.
