History of Beagle Breed

Hare-hunting was a popular sport in England back in the 14th century. That’s an activity that involves beagle packs, harriers, and basset packs. In this sport, hares are hunted by scent. These hounds are controlled by people. This is now an illegal sport due to the violence of that sport. Still, that sport was the main reason for the popularity of the Beagle breed.

The word beagle was not used until 1475 and the word beagle may be originated from an old French word that has the meaning “open throat”.

Beagles were a good hunting dog breed because hunters could follow them on foot and even carry one in their pocket if needed because of their size.

Beagles are first mentioned in 1642 in America. They were used in the South before the Civil War. After the Civil War, this breed gained popularity among Americans, and by the end of the 19th century, this breed has become a popular competing breed in both conformation exhibitions and fields.

Now in the modern day, Beagles have made a household name as one of the best dog breeds in the world and is already one of the popular dog breeds in America.
