Los cachorros Beagle son gentiles, dulces y divertidos. Te harán reír, pero eso es cuando no te hacen llorar debido a su comportamiento a menudo travieso. Los beagle pasan mucho tiempo tratando de superar a sus perros y, a menudo, deben recurrir a recompensas de comida para atraer al beagle a un estado de obediencia temporal. Como todo perro, el Beagle necesita una socialización temprana  exposición a muchas personas, vistas, sonidos y experiencias diferentes, cuando son jóvenes. La socialización ayuda a garantizar que su cachorro Beagle crezca y se convierta en un perro completo

Un patio trasero cercado es una necesidad con un sabueso como un Beagle. Cuando esté afuera, su Beagle debe estar con correa en áreas no confinadas, o confinado y supervisado de manera segura. Es un vagabundo por naturaleza, así que en caso de que escape  una ocurrencia común con Beagles asegúrese de que tenga un microchip y que use etiquetas de identificación en su collar para que pueda devolvérselo. Algunas personas prefieren usar una cerca electrónica subterránea, pero este tipo de recinto no evita que otros animales entren en su jardín. Además, si un olor es lo suficientemente tentador, tu Beagle estará más que dispuesto a arriesgarse a una descarga momentánea para seguirlo. Como todos los perros, los Beagles se benefician del entrenamiento de obediencia. Las técnicas de refuerzo positivo funcionan mejor porque los Beagles simplemente se apagan cuando se les trata con dureza. La mayoría de los Beagles están más que felices de hacer cualquier cosa por un sabroso manjar. Los Beagles adolescentes están llenos de energía y necesitan muchas oportunidades para trabajar. Les encanta salir a caminar con su familia o, mejor aún, una buena carrera por un campo para cazar conejos (no recomendado a menos que hayas entrenado a tu perro para que vuelva contigo. Disfrutarán trotando contigo, pero espera hasta que tengan 18 meses o más antes de comenzar con un ejercicio repetitivo como este.Cuando madura, un Beagle puede volverse bastante perezoso, contento de estar acostado en la casa todo el día, levantarse para comer y tal vez rascarse las orejas ocasionalmente. Dado que esta es una raza propensa a la obesidad, no dejes que esto suceda.

A continuación hay una lista de elementos que se pueden encontrar en Beagles.  Solo algunos cachorros beagle serán diagnosticados con alguna de estas condiciones, pero si está interesado en un cachorro Beagle como parte de su familia, debe conocer las posibilidades.

Genética del Beagle

Intervertebral Disk Disease:

The spinal cord is surrounded by the vertebral column, and between the bones of the vertebral column are intervertebral discs that work as shock absorbers and allow normal movement of the vertebrae. The discs are made of two layers, an outer fibrous layer and an inner jelly-like layer. Intervertebral disc disease occurs when the jelly like inner layer protrudes into the spinal canal and pushes against the spinal cord. Compression of the spinal cord may be minimal, causing neck or back pain, or it can be severe, causing loss of sensation, paralysis, and lack of bowel or bladder control. The damage done by the spinal compression may be irreversible. Treatment is based on several factors, including location, severity, and length of time between injury and treatment. Confining the dog may be of some use, but surgery is often needed to relieve pressure on the spinal cord. Surgery is not always successful.

Cherry Eye

This is a condition in which the gland under the third eyelid protrudes and looks rather like a cherry in the corner of the eye. Your vet may need to remove the gland.

Glaucoma

This is a painful disease in which pressure in the eye becomes abnormally high. Eyes are constantly producing and draining a fluid called aqueous humor — if the fluid doesn't drain correctly, the pressure inside the eye increases causing damage to the optic nerve and resulting in vision loss and blindness. There are two types. Primary glaucoma, which is hereditary, and secondary glaucoma which is a result of inflammation, a tumor, or injury. Glaucoma generally affects one eye first, which will be red, teary, squinty, and appear painful. A dilated pupil won't react to light, and the front of the eye will have a whitish, almost blue cloudiness. Vision loss and eventually blindness will result, sometimes even with treatment (surgery or medication, depending on the case).

Distichiasis

This condition occurs when an additional row of eyelashes (known as distichia) grow on the oil gland in the dog's eye and protrude along the edge of the eyelid. This irritates the eye, and you may notice your Aussie squinting or rubbing his eye(s). Distichiasis is treated surgically by freezing the excess eyelashes with liquid nitrogen and then remove them. This type of surgery is called cryoepilation and is done under general anesthesia.

Epilepsy

This is a neurological condition that's often, but not always, inherited. Epilepsy can cause mild or severe seizures that may show themselves as unusual behavior (such as running frantically as if being chased, staggering, or hiding) or even by falling down, limbs rigid, and losing consciousness. Seizures are frightening to watch, but the long-term prognosis for dogs with idiopathic epilepsy is generally very good. It's important to take your dog to the vet for proper diagnosis (especially since seizures can have other causes) and treatment.

Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism is a disorder of the thyroid gland. It's thought to be responsible for conditions such as epilepsy, alopecia (hair loss), obesity, lethargy, hyperpigmentation, pyoderma, and other skin conditions. It is treated with medication and diet.

Beagle Dwarfism

This is a condition where the dog is smaller than normal. This condition may or may not be accompanied by other physical abnormalities, such as extremely short legs.

Chinese Beagle Syndrome (CBS)

Chinese Beagle Syndrome (CBS): This is a condition that is characterized by a wide skull and slanted eyes. The dog grows normally otherwise. Quite often, dogs with CBS have heart problems and toe abnormalities.

Patellar Luxation

Also known as "slipped stifles," this is a common problem in small dogs. It is caused when the patella, which has three parts  the femur (thigh bone), patella (knee cap), and tibia (calf)  is not properly lined up. This causes lameness in the leg or an abnormal gait, sort of like a skip or a hop. It is a condition that is present at birth although the actual misalignment or luxation does not always occur until much later. The rubbing caused by patellar luxation can lead to arthritis, a degenerative joint disease. There are four grades of patellar luxation, ranging from grade I, an occasional luxation causing temporary lameness in the joint, to grade IV, in which the turning of the tibia is severe and the patella cannot be realigned manually. This gives the dog a bowlegged appearance. Severe grades of patellar luxation may require surgical repair.
