The Best Breeds for Families


Beagles are energetic, curious, and playful. They have a long history, with packs of small pack-hounds noted in the Roman Empire during 55 B.C. Beagles were popular hunting dogs for the English social elites, often running in packs and chasing rabbits. Today they are one of the most popular family dogs due to their friendliness, low grooming needs, and ease of training.
