We just adopted a dog from the Humane Society in our town, and all her paperwork says beagle. However, I had beagles growing up, and while she is definitely a hound or hound mix of some sort, I'm not so sure on the straight beagle. She's about 35-40 pounds and a good 15 or so inches at the shoulders. We're just curious to see if anyone else felt like taking a guess that might have hound breed knowledge. She's a sweetheart, though, and always has her nose to the ground trying to sniff something out.
