The Beagle is a puppy of British origin, with a tricolor dress, brown, copper and white, very becoming. It's very pleasant character made of him an attaching dog that everyone will appreciate. A glance soft and full with tenderness, a constant vitality, a remarkable inductivity and an intelligence, associated docility, an irreproachable obedience, gifts of hunter except par, turn into to Beagle a dog which one will seek to adapt as much for hunting that for the family life.

The origin of the Beagle, which never could be established with veracity, seems to go up in century before J.C where texts speak about a dog of small size which drives out hare. It is supposed that little time after this time, it forwards, with the liking of the voyages of the Romans, towards England, of the traces of its settlement in the British Isles exist. One finds his trace in 15th, then in 16th century, under the reigns of Henri and Elisabeth.

The evolution of the Beagle was done by the exchanges of dogs between US and Great Britain. It is on the Normandy coast that it will be listed as of the Revolution. It will benefit from this proximity to be introduced on the US territory; it starts to be very present in US about the years 1890. These dogs will constitute the first great lines of beagles raised for the hunting of hare with course. After the Second World War, new entries of specimens in US will support the rise and the improvement of the race.

As of the second part of the 20th century, one will know two types of Beagle: the small Beagle (of a size of 0, 33 m to 0, 36 m) and the large Beagle (measuring, him, of 0, 37 m to 0, and 42 m). Only one size is from now on in conformity with the standard: of 0, 33 m to 0, 41 m, for 12 to 18 kg. The Beagle race knew with the imports a beneficial evolution towards a production of resistant dogs.

The Beagle is a dog current vigorous, compact, merry, whose essential function is the hunt. It should be noted that it can only work, in duet, or pack. A wearing of broad, round ears with their end, eyes round, dark, a dark truffle and quite open nostrils. Its reduced size enables him to be very mobile and to penetrate in difficult places, thorny bushes, rough and stony grounds, if the situation requires it. Incisive, go-ahead type, it is sometimes hard to stop it in his action.

Only 5 % approximately of the livestock are dogs of company, the great majority being hunters. The Beagle, with its small size, its close-cropped hair ideal for the mediums in which it must move, with its not very common robustness, is, in addition, an intelligent dog, which joins together all qualities of a reliable and complete dog. It is qualified for all the types of hunting.

The Beagle is very attached to its Master, but its education must be very strict from the very start. Very player, it appears an excellent companion for all the family. In short, all those which quotient it know that through its whims, its imaginations and its wonderful act, the Beagle is an attaching dog, of an availability to any test. Its food is to be supervised; it is a puppy which tends to take weight very easily.
