Beagles are a small-to-medium dog breed originally bred as trackers for hunting. They still love to sniff and chase while outside, but they have also become one of the most popular companion dogs. Beagles are smart but known to be a little stubborn and can take some time to train. With plenty of exercise and attention, Beagles are a well-behaved, curious, affectionate addition to the family.
Beagles originated in 16th-century England, where the upper class bred them as rabbit hunters. While many are still used to hunt small game, Beagles are popular companion dogs for families.
They are easily recognizable by their floppy ears and big brown eyes. You can find Beagles in several different colors including black, brown, gold, white, red, lemon, blue, and liver. Most Beagles have a bicolor or tricolor coat.
Beagles require plenty of daily exercise to maintain optimal health and behavior. They also don’t like to be left alone for too long, so be sure to have a plan so they don’t become anxious and destructive in such situations.
True to their nature, Beagles tend to always have their head down to the ground, sniffing for an interesting scent to follow. They will quickly wander off if they catch an alluring smell, so you’ll need to keep a watchful eye on them. But their curious nature makes them fun companions and great adventurers.
Beagles have a gentle and playful temperament but have a tendency to bark at anything and everything. They can also be difficult to train, but you’ll have a loyal and obedient companion with enough patience and positive reinforcement.
Beagles can grow up to 30 pounds in weight and 15 inches in height. The breed is usually quite healthy, enjoying an average lifespan of 10 to 15 years.
How dog-friendly is Alabama?
Alabamans are dog-lovers! The state has high dog ownership and several pet-friendly destinations. However, it doesn’t rank well compared to other states when it comes to animal cruelty laws and protections. We hope to see some changes to that soon!
Here’s what you should know about Alabama.
Two major studies for pet-friendliness ranked Alabama in the lower half of all 50 states. Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group, ranked Alabama 43rd. Safewise, a consumer safety review site, ranked it slightly higher at 31st in the country.
Both studies evaluated all 50 states by several factors, including animal welfare laws, pet-friendly accommodations, pet services, dog parks, and hiking trails. In both studies, the state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
Are cities in Alabama pet-friendly?
Yes! A study by Wallethub reviewed the 100 largest cities in the country to rank them by pet-friendliness. Here’s how Alabama’s biggest city stacked up.
Birmingham was ranked 5th overall of all 100 cities! This pet-friendly city scored 9th in pet budget, 15th in pet health and wellness, and 77th in outdoor pet-friendliness. We blame the heat and humidity for the last ranking, but Birmingham does have beautiful parks and outdoor space.
A few more facts for dog-lovers in Alabama
BringFido lists Alabama as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 1,700 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels.
Forty-seven percent of Alabama residents own a dog. This is above the national dog ownership rate of 40%.
What kinds of dogs do Alabamans love? According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Alabama are Labradors, Basset Hounds, and Beagles. Other popular breeds include Huskies, Retrievers, and Collies.
Animal welfare & dog shelters in Alabama
Alabama saved 75,761 dogs and cats during 2020. However, 16,825 animals were reported killed over this same period.
Thirty-one out of 93 of the animal shelters within Alabama are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, and the state has a below-average save rate of 74%. This is pretty far below the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. Again, animal protection is an area where Alabama can definitely improve.
