Beagle Harrier

Despite the English-sounding name and British ancestors, the Beagle Harrier is French through and through.

About the Beagle Harrier

Baron Gérard, who is regarded as the father of the breed, prioritised endurance and persistence when selecting characteristics, so that Beagle Harriers were always able to follow the mounted battue in a pack without losing cohesion. That’s why Beagle Harriers are easy to train and full of enthusiasm.

Beagle Harriers are an elegant compromise between both breeds. These scenthounds can track hares, foxes, roe deer or wild boar.
