Beagles are one of the most popular dog breeds in the United States. They’re known for being great family pets, but there’s a lot that you probably didn’t know about Beagles. Here are some interesting facts about this beloved breed:
Fun Facts About the Beagle
1. Beagles were bred for hunting.
Beagles are excellent dogs for hunting rabbits and hares. They have a phenomenal sense of smell and seemingly endless stamina.
2. Their ears help their noses.
According to the breed standard, Beagles’ ears, when drawn out, reach the end of their nose. Those long ears actually catch scent particles and keep them close to the dog’s nose, so he can take in as much information as possible.
4. Beagles can vocalize three ways.
The name “Beagle” is thought to come from the French word “begueule,” meaning “gaped throat,” and Beagles can definitely live up to that namesake. The Beagle is one of the most vocal dog breeds, and he can make three different sounds: a standard bark, a yodel-like sound called a bay (which he uses when hunting), and a howl.
5. Beagles’ tails are like white flags.
Many beagles have a white-tipped tail. This white tip was bred into Beagles so that they would be visible when they had their noses to the ground during a hunt.
6. Lots of Beagles have jobs.
A Beagle’s incredible sense of smell makes him a great working dog. Beagles are often used as bedbug detectors. The Department of Homeland Security also uses Beagles in airports to find food in passengers’ luggage, in order to prevent the spread of foreign diseases and parasites. This team of dogs is called The Beagle Brigade.
7. A Beagle named Elvis can smell pregnancy.
“Polar bear pregnancy detector” is a much less common Beagle job, but it does exist. A two-year-old Beagle named Elvis was actually trained to determine whether a polar bear is pregnant by smelling her poop. Elvis is a big help to zookeepers and can identity samples from pregnant females with 97 percent accuracy.
8. President Lyndon Johnson had three Beagles.
Their names were “Him,” “Her,” and “Edgar.” There’s no explanation as to why the first two were named Him and Her, but the third one was named after J. Edgar Hoover, the Director of the FBI, who gave the dog to Johnson after Him and Her died.
9. As affectionate and cheerful as Beagles are, they can be a handful.
Led by their noses, Beagles are prone to roam, so a fenced yard is important. They also dislike being left alone and will show their displeasure by howling and destructive behavior.
10. Snoopy is a Beagle.
You may not initially think that Charlie Brown’s beloved pet is a Beagle, but in fact, he is an AKC-registered Beagle.
