Beagles are good-natured and will get along with most other dogs. They are bred to be pack animals, so they’ll take their membership in your family seriously. Beagles love children but need to be exposed to cats at an early age, if you want them to develop amicable relationships.


The modern Beagle originates from England around 1550. The breed owes its ancestry to the Foxhound, the Harrier and a small Bloodhound, known as the Kerry Beagle.
