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!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.
