The beagle's hunting ability, combined with a merry personality, has made the beagle one of the most popular dogs in the United States, according to AKC registration statistics.
A sturdy hunting dog, the beagle should look like a foxhound in miniature.
Beagles are happy-go-lucky and friendly, making them a wonderful family pet.
They are also favored for their compact size and short, easy-to-care-for coat.
Curious and comedic, they often follow their noses -- which can lead to some mischief if they are not provided with daily activity. National Beagle Club of America
