The Beagle is a sweet-tempered hound, excellent with children and other dogs. They are social and intelligent, but has a mind of their own. They need regular exercise, such as daily walks, else they will be very active indoors. They are small, about 20 - 30 lbs., and have a short to medium length coat that is very easy to take care of. This is a good breed for families or novice dog owners.
Being a hound, the Beagle will sometimes follow its nose rather than its owner, so they should be kept on a leash except in secure areas. Also being a hunter, they should not be trusted with smaller pets, such as birds or rabbits, unless introduced to them at a very young age.
