The Pocket Beagles are small, hardy, merry and fun loving dogs that stand between 7-12 inches and weigh around 7-15 lbs. Unlike most other miniature breeds, the Pocket Beagles are rough, tumble and ready for action, without common health problems that some other miniature breeds experience due to reduction in size. They are bred to hunt small game specially rabbits. Regardless of its size, it is difficult to resist the appeal of a Beagle's dark brown or hazel eyes, with their soft, pleading expression.
