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 Texas?
We’ve looked at several studies to evaluate where states rank in pet-friendliness and safety, and the great state of Texas is basically right in the middle. Texas has some really excellent places to raise your dogs, with a few key drawbacks you might want to consider.
Pawsafe ranks Texas 30th in terms of pet-friendliness. In a similar study, Safewise ranked Texas as the 28th most pet-friendly state. These studies examine numerous factors, including pet care costs, walkability, the number of pet-friendly rentals, and animal welfare laws. All these factors help us see how happy and safe our pets and the animals around them can be.
Texas has a relatively high percentage of pet-friendly rentals at 29%. That puts the state in the top five for pet-friendly rentals. In fact, 43.4% of Texas residents own a dog – above the national average of 40%. Overall, Texas has a slightly above average pet ownership rate of 58%. Texas clearly loves its pets!
The best cities for pet ownership in Texas
Texas is a big place – so what about individual cities? WalletHub analyzed the most pet-friendly cities in the United States and Texas cities performed pretty well!
WalletHub rated Austin, Plano, Fort Worth, Houston, and Corpus Christi the most pet-friendly cities, at 15th, 20th, 35th, 36th, and 39th out of 100 cities around the U.S.
A few other Texas cities rank further down the list. El Paso, Lubbock, San Antonio, and Dallas ranked 52nd, 55th, 71st, and 72nd, respectively. Irving, near Dallas, has a relatively high concentration of dog parks, with 1.2 parks per 100,000 residents. They tied for 40th among major cities.
Austin ranks most pet-friendly city in Texas
Austin ranks high in almost every study as a happy place for dogs. SmartAsset found Austin to be the 19th most pet-friendly city in the country.
Some of Austin’s notable qualities included over 513 dog-friendly restaurants. Austin also has the most dog-friendly shopping centers of any city, with 28. There are 65 pet stores and offices for every 10,000 establishments in the state.
The Trust for Public Land (TPL) found that Austin has the 24th highest number of dog parks per capita, with 1.8 dog parks per 100,000 residents.
Animal welfare & dog shelters in Texas
We’re sad to sy that in 2019, Texas ranked second in shelter pet deaths and euthanasia. The state had previously ranked first for shelter pet deaths, so at least it is improving. Plus, Texas saved 44,601 more animals in 2020 than in 2019.
The state has an overall save rate of 81.6%. A 90% save rate is required to be a no-kill state. We’re happy to see more and more movement toward protecting the animal community and placing pups in happy homes.
