Beagles are in the family of scent hounds. They are a great, manageable size for someone who doesn't want 80 pounds of dog, but also doesn't want a toy size pup. They are highly scent driven, so they are perfect for someone who is good with a leisurely walk as they will want to sniff everything. They do bark, or bay, rather. So they might not be best suited for apartment living. Find out more about Beagles on vetstreet.com.
