Description and Temperament

The in-game description in the 3DS version says that the breed Beagle is English and the 3DS version description refers to how the English use this breed for hunting sport. Modern Beagles originated around 1830. Their noses are second only to the Bloodhound. Beagles are also a large part of popular culture. Snoopy from the Peanuts comic strip, Grape Ape's companion Beegle Beagle, and the superhero Underdog are such examples. The Beagle is the dog breed most often used for animal testing due to its calm and gentle temperament.
