Beagle Blankie Buddy

The 32nd Dog Breed Blankie Buddy is this pint-sized tenacious hunter. They are about 13-15 inches tall and a very old breed. Beagles, in their very early form, came to England with William the Conqueror. The first mention of the Beagle by name in English literature dates from c. 1475. The name Beagle is believed to be a mix of the Gaelic word beag meaning “small,” and the French word beugler, meaning, “to bellow.” A ‘Small Bellower’ is a pretty accurate description for these cute little guys. They may be small, but they can make themselves heard like any Hound.
