Below are 15 of The Pros, The Cons, and the In-Betweens to Owning Beagle Puppies:

  • They are wonderful family dogs and are great with kids of all ages and sizes.
  • Beagles are inquisitive and strong-minded, but very intelligent and willing to please.
  • Beagles are pack animals and do well with other dogs, so consider getting two Beagle puppies and double the fun!
  • The “Peanuts” character Snoopy is the most famous Beagle. Awwwww, Snoopy and Woodstock would be great Beagle buddy names!
  • Beagle actually means loudmouth, in French, which honestly, is pretty apropos.
  • Beagles are known for being very vocal, with barking, baying and howling. This stems from their hunting background and is a trademark of the breed.
  • They’re considered to be arguably one of the oldest dog breeds.
  • Beagle puppies left alone for too long may become destructive, especially if they haven’t gotten enough exercise. They need to be walked, played with or challenged to learn a new trick daily to burn off excess energy.
  • The Beagle has ranked in the top 10 most popular dogs since its acceptance into the AKC in 1885.
  • If you’re looking for a guard dog, a Beagle may not be the best choice, since they tend to be friendly to strangers, but you will hear when someone comes through the door!
  • Because of his hunting nature, Beagles are usually aggressive towards small animals. Keep this in mind if you have other fur babies in the house.
  • Once again, be mindful of his hunting nature. Beagle puppies should be guided and led while walking, if not, they may find a trail and disappear!
  • Beagles are generally very healthy and live long full lives, with relatively few health problems. Their droopy ears, however, can get infected so special care and attention are necessary.
  • They dig and dig and dig. If you’ve got a yard, be careful to watch you Beagle when they are outside!
