  • Overview

  • Few dogs are as iconic as the world-famous Beagle. Comact, affectionate and keenly intelligent, Beagles are the ideal canine companion. The Beagles history can be traced as far back as 2500 years ago, when hounds like the Beagle were bred by the Ancient Greeks as scent hounds to track small game.

    Beagles possess one of the most powerful noses in the animal kingdom, capable of tracking small game over incredible distances, and with surprising accuracy.

    Little has changed in the many long years the Beagle has been hunting by our side, except the number of roles the Beagle has added to its canine resume. From preventing smugglers with its powerful nose, to detecting termite infestations, and pet therapy there are few canine roles the Beagle is not equipped to play.

    Beagles are friendly, fun loving, and will jump at the first chance to follow their nose. They live to scent trace, leading many owners to create fun and interesting new games to play, socialize and train their Beagle to use its amazing scent tracking skill.

    With its lovable personality, incredible nose and superior health, it’s no surprise that today the Beagle is one of the most popular dog breeds in the world.

  • Basenji

    The Basenji is one of the few breeds in the world that does not bark! Bred in Central Africa to hunt lions, the Basenji makes a sound more similar to a yodel, because of its uniquely shaped larynx. Basenjis have independent and aloof personalities, and make calm, loyal companions. They are a very intelligent breed and are easily recognized because of their tightly coiled tails, wrinkled foreheads, and large, erect ears. Basenjis would do well living in a variety of environments.

  • Basset Hound

    The Basset Hound holds the record for world’s longest dog ears! These low-to-the-ground pups were bred originally in France to be rabbit-hunting dogs, because of their incredible sense of smell (second only to the Bloodhound). In the home, Basset Hounds are gentle, patient pets that do very well with children and other animals. They are loveable, amusing, and naturally well-behaved, making them a perfect household pet. Because of their low centers of gravity and stocky bodies, Bassets have a medium-low energy level.

  • Beabull

    Beabull is a mix of the Beagle and the English Bulldog. Generally, this breed is very loyal, friendly, and patient with young children and other pets. Beabull has a medium energy level, so it’s a great choice for those people who can’t keep up with a more energetic dog. They love to be a couch potato, but occasionally they love to burn off their energy on a long walk. They are calm, loving, intelligent, and dedicated. This breed is not the best watchdog because it has a friendly nature; however, they won’t hesitate to protect their human family if necessary.
