These dogs have a chipper temperament. They would whistle, if they could. They are social and are great for family dogs. Their size is condensed and the short fur is easily cared for.

There are two heights for Beagles: 13 inches high or shorter dogs that weigh 18 pounds and the 15 inches or shorter ones that weigh in at 30 pounds. Their temperament, color, and markings are identical. The coat is snug against the body, firm, and medium in length. It is defective, if it is soft or too short and sparse. The colors normally thought of as Beagle ones are are tan and black with white.
