EDITORS’ NOTE: Beagles are now even more famous thanks to a 4-year-old Beagle named Miss P winning Best in Show at the 139th annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

Many people think that Snoopy, the infamous Beagle from Charles Schulz’s Peanuts comic strip, does not look like a Beagle at all. Regardless of his physical similarity to a real life Beagle, Snoopy is a perfect portrayal of the standard breed: smart, playful, affectionate, lethargic at times and energetic at times!

  • The correct word is famous NOT infamous which is more of a synonym for notorious , dishonorable. Infamous does not mean super famous!!!

  • I always have loved beagles. After I got married my husband surprised me and adopted a beagle – and the dog was already named Snoopy! So then I had my very own Snoopy. He fit his name. I still miss him very much.

  • I think Snoopy was a lemon and white Beagle like my dizzy, because she only has one patch on her other than her ears.
