Welcome to BW! I'm on Jersey's third crate. I prefer using the hard plastic travel variety though. You can get the wire types that come with a divider so it can grow with the dog. I'm going to guess on the measurements since I'm in a different room, but I think her's is about 30-35 inches long by 24 inches tall. However, Jersey is taller and longer than your average Beagle.

And I too used to think crates were cruel until I started training Jersey with one. Does this look like a dog who is unhappy to be in her crate?

I should add...you don't want too large of a crate for your puppy. Just enough room for them to stand up and turn around. The purpose is to confine them to an area so that they learn to hold it. A dog usually won't releive themselves in the same place where they sleep. The wire types that adjust are perfect for that as you can block off a smaller area now and give them more room as they grow. By the time I discovered those types of crates Jersey was already used to her plastic ones and I didn't want to change her.
