Beagles are very social companions - they have a great sense of humour, love kids and make perfect family dogs, especially for the active family.
They love a large pack and will use any opportunity to join in with the kids' play. Their excellent sense of smell might cause them to wander away at the park and they will eat anything that comes into sight. But no matter what trouble they get into, those sad eyes and cute face will make you forgive them for anything!
Beagles are happiest if they get a couple of walks a day and when not left home alone for too long. They love to cuddle and to snuggle up on their beds inside the house at night. They also enjoy having a job, like playing with the kids or 'protecting' them. Without an activity, they are likely to get bored and may become destructive.
Health issues are low but Beagles are prone to eye and ear infections.
