The Beagle is an energetic, free-spirited dog with a friendly demeanor. It's no wonder the Beagle is one of the most popular dog breeds around, because this hound is affectionate, playful and well-rounded. Many Beagles can go from couch potato to running partner in seconds! Though still often used in hunting, the Beagle is more commonly known as a lovable family pet. In fact, the Beagle is typically considered one of the best dogs for kids.

Perhaps the popularity of the Beagle is related to well-known Beagles over the years. From the character of Snoopy in the Peanuts cartoons to Uno, the first Beagle to ever win Best in Show at the Westminster Dog Show in 2008, the Beagle is a memorable breed. Any Beagle owner can tell you how lovable this bright and cheery breed can be. Are you a proud Beagle owner? Tell us about your Beagle!

We have had Maggie since August 2011, she is very docile and gentle. she can be rough when we want her too.
I have been on burnout and major depression since November and she has helped me come a long way.
