The Beagle originated in England around 1475 and was quite popular on the hunting field. They are not big dogs, standing less than 15 inches tall and weighing between 18 and 30 pounds. Because of their size, hunters were able to keep up with them and even carry them when needed. The smaller the dog, the more likely they would be compatible with woman hunters, as well as the elderly and those with disabilities. It was a good choice for almost anyone who wanted to try hunting, from the experienced to first-timers. They were normally used for hunting rabbits.
Once they were finally brought to the United States, they were highly regarded with all types of families – families with or without children, families with or without other pets, families consisting of multiple people and families of one. They have consistently ranked in the top five most popular breeds as ranked by the American Kennel Club, most recently ranking fourth, in 2010.
There are many reasons these dogs are so popular. First, they have great personalities. They are very friendly dogs and get along well with everyone, human and canine alike. Second, they are gentle and tolerant, making the breed a good choice for a family with children, no matter what the age. Third, they encourage exercise. Like all dogs, they encourage their owners to get out of the house for some fresh air.
A few things that are not so desirable include their tendency to bark and howl, their independence that make them hard to recall, and the fact that their coats need brushing at least once a week. They are also prone to a few health conditions, including intervertebral disk disease and hip dysplasia. Both of these conditions affect the bones in the body and can be quite painful for the dog if not treated.
Pet insurance can help with the costs associated with treating these conditions so that families don’t have to worry about cost when determining the best course of action. If offers peace of mind during one of the most difficult times a family can endure.
These dogs live to be approximately 12 to 15 years of age.
