Baron Gérard, who is regarded as the father of the breed, prioritized 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.
Moderately strong, with fairly broad, fairly voluminous skull.
Short, muscular, well sustained back, strong, muscular loins, slight arching possible, well descended chest.
Tricolor (fawn with black blanket and white), blanket not important, with more or less vibrant, pale, black tan, as gray and grayish white coats also exist.

As you might expect, Beagle Harriers are the offspring of crossbreeding between a Beagle and a Harrier. Although both parents are British breeds, Beagle Harriers are actually native to France, where they were first bred at the end of the 19th century.Beagle Harriers are an elegant and harmonious compromise between the two breeds. These scenthounds can track hares, foxes, roe deer or wild boar.
Despite the English sounding name and British ancestors, the Beagle Harrier is French through and through.
