The Beagle’s small size (they can easily be carried!) and calm temperament make him a great choice for families, and if your kids love the outdoors, this breed will fit right in, since there’s nothing they love more than exploring outside and taking to the trails. Beagles were originally kept as hunting dogs, and their sturdy build means they’re never too tired to play games. (If you’re afraid you might bore your new Beagle, don’t worry, these ideas will keep your pup busy and engaged.)
Smart, friendly, and happy, the Beagle usually gets along with other pets, too (except for a bit of chasing here and there). However, they do shed, and require frequent brushing and bathing, While your Beagle most likely won’t have a bird named Woodstock as his best friend, you can, by all means, name him (or her) Snoopy.
