Beagles are famous for their loving and friendly nature. They are also very industrious and helpful. Originally, beagles were bred for hunting with their strong sense of smell and alertness. However, they can be really gentle and friendly when they are not hunting.

Beagles are affectionate and attentive and don’t need much physical exercise, so seniors don’t need to bother about trying to keep up with a physically active dog while they are not active. Having a beagle as a pet will help elderly persons enjoy the affectionate and loving nature of the dog without having to stress over taking care of the furry bestie.
