Pocket beagles are a small delightful pleasant tail wagging miniature version of the beagle. Pocket beagles are lively, curious, gentle, and as adorable as any animal you have ever seen.

Toys Pack For Small Beagles
Perfect for New Puppy – Perfect little set for my new puppy, Bentley! He loved sleeping with his donut and giraffe squeakers. The large ball rope toy became frayed after a few weeks of use, but I expected that because of his sharp puppy teeth and his constant need to gnaw on something. The squeakers are holding up pretty well and wash easily if need be!

Most wonderful and majestic schnauzer – This product is as described by the vendor. Is holding up quite well as my mini schnauzer plays with it all the time and has yet to destroy it – however, the squeaker lasted exactly 1 day. Luckily, I ordered a bag of extra squeakers and just replaced it and – voila – happy puppy again.
Unique Beagle Ball Pack for Puppy Chewing
Beagle Love This – My dog absolutely loves this. Granted, he does chew-through some of the plastic in his attempts to get the treats out, so it’s about time to replace them for new ones. I use one of these to keep him occupied while I’m away. I use them with soft treats. I can tear them in half or into pieces to get them the right size to fit in the toy’s teeth.
History Of The Breed
The pocket beagle breed was known as many names through history, the teacup beagle, the toy beagle, the miniature beagle and the Queen Victoria beagle. These dogs originated in history around the 14th century and were common in early Britain. Commonly hunters used them to hunt rabbit and fox and they were small enough to take on horseback and placed in a saddle bag or “pocket”. The breed was used to flush hunted game out of hiding when bigger dogs chased them into thickets and brush. With centuries passing the dog actually had its time as a popular dog of royal court and then it seemed to be replaced by other dogs of more exotic and “fashionable” needs. The dog actually risked extinction in its place of origin in the United Kingdom. In the United States, there were not many breeders of the dog. Today the dog is making a healthy comeback. The cautious thing to remember is, to make sure you research your breeder and the dog’s lineage. Pocket beagles of real pedigree can fetch a decent amount of money so many people have jumped into the miniature dog breeding game but not all are true versions of this fantastic dog. One does not want a bastardized version of an inbred beagle line. Especially if paying $1600 for a puppy. A breeder will be more than happy to display their parent dogs and other pups. Make sure both parents are pocket beagles as well, and that the breeder has some history.
