Erin,
What is the height at the shoulder? Looks like a beagle to me.

I've always thought it was interesting how appearances can vary somewhat between different beagles. Some have pretty long ears and some have shorter ears that make me think they've got something else mixed in with a beagle.

My cousin had a lemon/tricolor beagle that we often wondered if she was part American Foxhound as she had a bit longer muzzle/head and longer body. But she told me she was purebred beagle and even had the papers to prove it.
I was convinced that Bella had part or was a foxhound, because she is so much taller/leaner than other beagles I see, and her snout is more elongated. But everyone swears she's a beagle!

She is over weight, but look at how small her legs are . So comparatively she is not very overweight. She needs to loose five pounds according to the vet. My parents take care of her while I'm at work and feed her table food against my orders, so I'm trying my hardest. :/

Oh don't worry we all have had to put a beagle or six in my case on a diet. My whole pack gave up treats for Lent. Lol
Once I had to take my portly beagle Sophie to a specialist. They took in back to get X-rays. On the return they went past our room and had to back up. The tech made the "beep,beep,beep" sound used when delivery trucks back up. Sophie went on a diet that day and she made her point. And yes I was embarrassed !! Lesson learned ..
My pack routinely eat carrots,green beans and green peppers for treats.

Your beagle is adorable. I love her soulful eyes. Just beautiful.

Dont get me wrong she is very cute, yes she has short legs. but she doesnt look like anything else but beagle to me. Id guess she needs to loose atleast 10lbs.

If your parents feed her to much while you are at work. then you just feed her less dog food. put green beans in her food to fill her.

My dogs hardly ever get the same amount of food a day. if they did alot of activites (more then their normal 5+km off leash hikes) they get more food. if they didnt do much for some reason that day they get less.

If you feed by the dog bag guidlines, you are almost always over feeding.

When I was growing up, my grandfather had hunting beagles and "Tipper" looked exactly like your dog. Long body, short legs (a bit bowlegged in front), shorter ears. IMHO that's a beagle--maybe not the AKC breed standard but a lovely dog anyway.

Beautiful, expressive eyes, with a very innocent expression; Beagles are amongst the most adorable dogs one can have as pets. Their adorable personalities and lively spirits allow them to get along well with children and even other pets.

The American Kennel Club recognizes two different types of beagles. Let’s explore the features that differentiate the two:

By Coat

While the most common beagle coats are black, brown, and white, you’ll come across some that are lemon yellow, red, and white as well as orange and white.

By Size

There are two different sizes of the Beagle, one measures 13 inches and under, and the other measures 13 to 15 inches from paw to shoulder.

Type 1: The first type of beagle grows only up to 13 inches tall. Also known as pocket beagles, this smaller variety loves to have fun. Their relatively smaller size makes them ideal for apartments and homes with less space. They usually weigh around 20 pounds and have a life expectancy of 7 to 9 years.

Type 2: The second type of beagle grows between 13 to 15 inches. These are standard-sized beagles and are more common. The 15 inches variety of Beagles weigh between 20 to 30 pounds and have a life expectancy of 12 to 15 years. They have an exceptional sense of smell owing to the fact that they were bred and raised for hunting. These beagles generally have white-tipped tails which make them easy to spot when hunting in tall grass.

Owing to their powerful yet compact and cuddly persona, there’s no doubt why beagles are growing in popularity by the day.
