Default Beagle odor

Do Beagles have a peculiar odor? Do some Beagles have it and others don't? Maggie has a odor I've never smelled on a dog before. It isn't a bad odor, just distinctive.

My previous beagle Molly never had a preculiar odor, and Maggie doesn't either. However, it's been discussed here before, that beagle feet smell like popcorn...and Maggie's do!

My dogs smell a little like popcorn, a little like Fritos, when they haven't had a bath in a while. I think they're due again. Bathing makes them sharing the bed a bit more tolerable...

I've never noticed a doggy smell too much on Jersey. Sometimes if she's been outside for a while she comes back in a little smelly but it seems to dissipate quickly. Her feet however, do smell like Fritos.

The only smell I have noticed from our dogs comes from their ears, and its not even a potent smell. Even when they haven't had a bath in a while, they don't seem to smell (unless they have found something especially smelly to roll on... then they know a bath is coming. Start the bath tub and you find Floppy under the desk every time.)
But when we do look in their ears and notice a smell, we usually just clean them out.
I never thought to smell their feet though...

I HAVE read that Beagles have a distinctive hound smell, and when Evan and I first got the puppies, they had a very distinctive smell, but it seems to have gone away...or maybe we're just used to it. It wasn't anything bad at all. It was just.....distinctive...lol

Our males feet smell like tortilla chips and I love the smell of beagle ears!

I don't think Maggie has an odor. The only time I notice any smell is when she insists on prowling the backyard in the pouring rain because she got the scent of some animal that was in the yard the night before.

Some hounds do have a distinctive odour that is not found on other breeds. My first dog Lilly had a very houndy smell but Rosa doesn't. Sherry just smells like an old dog bless her.

Caesar has a smell but it isn't bad, I actually like it. I find that after a long day at work I want to go home, give him a big hug and sniff. And yes, his feet smell like Fritos.
