Beagles are a very old dog breed, dating back to 400 BC. We don't know for certain when the exact breed was created, but documents from 400 BC describe beagle-like characteristics of dogs.
These pups are known to be faithful companions and enjoy the outdoors. Often used for tasks such as hunting, Beagles can be very energetic. They are friendly to almost anyone they come in contact with and get along well with other dogs.
Beagles tend to live anywhere from 10 years old to 15 years. They weigh roughly 15-30 pounds and normally stand about 1 foot tall.
