One of the oldest breeds, the Beagle was used as a hunting companion by English gentlemen in the 1500s. A gentle, intelligent pack dog, the Beagle enjoys the company of other dogs and people. Friendly and cheerful, he makes a great family companion. An active breed, the Beagle needs daily exercise, but his short coat requires minimal care.
President Lyndon B. Johnson owned three Beagles named "Him," "Her" and "Edgar."
