Beagle

Background:
The Beagle is a small hound that was originally developed for hunting hare and rabbit by scent, and was followed on foot by hunters. Beagles hunted in packs of 12 or 24 hounds.

The need for Beagles to track wily hares that twisted and turned, even backtracking over fields, is what dictated a Beagle's size. Different sized Beagles worked over different terrain – from open fields for the smaller hound to the high and mountainous English Border country for the larger hounds, with various sized dogs for in-between terrain.
