It is a medium sized dog, between 45 and 50 centimeters (18 to 20 inches) tall at the withers[1], and it weighs between 19 and 21 kilograms (42 to 46 pounds).[2] Its coat is usually tricolor, featuring the colors fawn, black, tan, or white. Grey coated (tricolor) Beagle Harriers may also be found due to there being grey coated Harriers.[3] The Beagle-Harrier's body is usually muscular and its coat smooth and thick.[4],

The Beagle Harrier is generally good with children and other pets. They are loyal, have lots of determination and are calm and relaxed when at home, making them a good family pet. They are a hunting breed and so require a lot of exercise and space.[5]

History

Beagle Harriers were bred in France in the 19th century by Baron Gerard.[7] They were bred to hunt hare or deer in packs.[8] The Beagle Harrier could be a mixture of the two breeds, the Beagle and the Harrier,[9] or the midpoint in breeding between the two breeds. [10] It was recognized by the FCI in 1974.[11]

The Beagle Harrier can now be quite rarely found in France and are even more rare in other countries.[12]
