What is a Lemon Beagle, Anyway?
A lemon Beagle is, well, a Beagle!
Beagles are great, active companions.
With their stereotypical hound-look, these beautiful dogs can easily steal anyone’s heart.
Beagles are, first and foremost, hunting dogs.

Two beagles

Lemon Beagle Size
There are actually two “sub-classes” of Beagles.
Those that are below thirteen inches, and those that are between thirteen and fifteen inches.
These are fittingly referred to as the “13-inch variety” and the “15-inch variety” respectably.
Is The Lemon Beagle Albino?
No!
Albino Beagles are extremely rare and do not have any pigmentation on any part of their body.
This means that they will have pink eye rims, nose, and lips.
Lemon and white is simply another possible coat color for a Beagle, and not the result of a genetic mutation.
Lemon colored Beagles will also have dark noses, eye rims, and lips.

Lemon Beagle Puppies
Lots of lemon Beagles are born appearing to be almost completely white.
However, with time, their tan coloring will usually darken and they will become distinctively two-toned.
In fact, a pure Beagle cannot be completely one color, as they do not have the gene for solid colors.
Instead, all Beagles have “hound coloring”, which basically means they always have at least two colors in their coat.

Beagles in the White House
Lyndon B. Johnson owned three Beagles while he was in the white house. They were named Him, Her, and Edgar.Descendants of the Beagle
When fox hunting became popular in the 18th century, the Foxhound was created by crossing a buckhound and a Beagle.
This breed is still very popular today!

Maymo the Lemon Beagle
Maymo is a lemon Beagle that recently become “internet famous”.
One of Maymo’s most well-known claims to fame is his ability to copy other life forms, such as Panda Bears!
Hopefully, he continues to delight the internet with his cute, quirky activities for years to come!
Drool, Drool, everywhere!
Just kidding!
Beagles, despite their hound-like faces, do not actually drool at all!
In fact, Beagles are one of the cleanest and easiest to maintain dogs. They do not drool or have a doggy odor. In fact, even shedding is very minimal and largely only takes place in the spring and fall!
Beagles are in fact still the number one pet in the U.S.A today.
So enjoy your lemon spotted beagle.
