The beagle may be a familiar breed to those who have spent time in the UK. A popular pet, beagles are seen on many family walks and seem unstoppable when it comes to tracking down scents. But what is this dog like? This article will give you some facts about beagles , as well as get to know these beloved dogs a little better!
Beagles were bred for their scenting abilities rather than good looks. They have deep, long ears that allow them to capture more scent particles carried by air currents more easily. The beagle's muzzle is quite short which allows it to be able to track down animals without straining its neck too much. There is also less distance between the beagle's nose and mouth so they can be fed small amounts of food more easily.
Beagles are known as friendly dogs, and they are often used for work such as tracking down criminals or finding drugs or bombs. Beagles can be trained to be gentle around children, even if they haven't been socialised with them while they were young.
These little dogs have a lot of energy and need plenty of exercise every day – at least an hour 's walk in addition to some running around the garden! They will be happy to join you on anything from a brisk walk up a hill to a run in the park, but be sure you keep their lead under control when out walking as beagles tend to take things at their own pace.
Beagles can live between 12 and 15 years.

While beagles make fantastic pets for those who can commit to taking care of one, be aware that beagles may not be the best choice if you live in a small apartment, as these dogs need regular exercise to keep their energy levels down. If one isn't given enough attention or exercise however, beagles will show their displeasure through barking - although they rarely become aggressive without good reason.
If you're looking for a dog which is loyal, friendly and fun-loving with a little bit of cheekiness thrown in there too, beagles may be the right breed for you!
