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 Arkansas?
Studies are divided over just how dog-friendly Arkansas is. The state has a long going for it, and a few areas for definite improvement. Let’s explore the two primary studies: one from Pawsafe and one from Safewise.
Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group, conducted a study to rank each state according to its pet-friendliness. They evaluated states by several important indicators, including animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations and access to services, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails.
In their study, Pawsafe ranks Arkansas as the #1 most pet-friendly state! That’s right, number one! The state also scored well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
However, Safewise, a site that reviews safety across the country, came to a very different conclusion. In their study, Arkansas is ranked as the 37th most pet-friendly state. Not terrible, but certainly not number one.
While the two studies produced contrasting results, assuming Arkansas falls somewhere in the middle of the two still puts the state towards the top of the list. So we consider Arkansas to be pet-friendly overall.

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Arkansas
Arkansas saved 38,197 dogs and cats during 2020. Approximately 6718 animals were killed over this same period.
Forty-three out of 93 of the animal shelters within Arkansas are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is rather low, but the state has an above-average save rate of 78%. However, this is short of the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. We hope to see improvement in years to come.
