Pocket Beagles, also referred to as Glove Beagles, are a smaller version of the standard Beagle but only grow to be about 7 to 12 inches in height and weight between 7 and 15 pounds. It is known that Queen Elizabeth I loved the dog breed so much that she kept a large amount of them as pets. They were a popular breed due to their ability to hunt and remain a family pet. After a while, their hunting skills were not wanted any longer since they couldn’t run very fast during the process. Today, the demand for Pocket Beagles is once again on the rise by dog owners and families.
Pocket Beagles have similar personality traits of the standard Beagle. They are happy, inquisitive, comical, smart, sweet and an excellent playmate for children. They have a stubborn streak that may test the patience of their owners. They are friendly with everyone ranging from family members to strangers. Early socialization will allow them to develop into a well behaved dog.
