Belgian Malinois

General Characteristics:

Beagles were originally bred to hunt rabbits. Considered to be good with other pets and children, the cheerful beagle thrives on affection. Active and curious, beagles need mental stimulation in order to be happy. Their friendly nature doesn't make them good guard dogs. Their short coat is remarkably easy to care for and requires minimal grooming.

These conditions are seen quite often in canines, mostly but not exclusively, in purebreds. Having said that, this breed has an increased risk for the following conditions which may or may not manifest:
