Best Breed Ever! Beagles!
Beagles have been bred since Roman times for
their sense of smell
But the larger modern day breed developed
in Great Britain in the 1830s
Beagles have 225 million scent receptors � dachshunds
have 125 million, and humans only have 5 million
Snoopy is probably the most famous beagle!
Purebred beagles have a white-tipped tail,
so hunters can easily see them while pursuing
Once beagles pick up on a scent, they WILL
follow it. Keep beagles in a fenced area or
on a leash!
Beagles can also be trained for medical assistance
� a beagle has even dialed 9-1-1 and saved
her owner’s life!
