Beagles have friendly personalities and tend to get along well with both humans and other animals.

Beagles were traditionally hunting dogs and often worked in packs. Their small size allows them to chase animals in the underbrush and over rough land, and when prey is found, the beagle's loud baying makes it easy for the hunters to locate them.
