Sulli just came home to us tonight. She is my first Lemon Beagle. I am wondering if Lemons all have this faded nose or if she may have Snow Nose. She was a totally outdoor dog for the last year in a Utah climate (cold & snowy) in winter. I figure it doesn't really matter and in time I will see a change now that she will be an indoor dog, but I was just curious.

There are three types of two-tone beagles - red and white, tan and white and then lemon and white. I wouldn't call your bitch a L&W going by that photo, she is probably more likely to be a R&W or a T&W - her red looks too strong to be a true L&W.

As for nose colour, it does depend on the genes. Liver noses are very common in two-tone beagles.

This is my tan and white, you can see her nose colour here:
I agree that she is more of a red and white than a lemon Beagle, but rarely do I hear people refer to them that way. When they are the duo-colored it seems that people around here always call them lemons, but the duo-colored is what I was looking for more than the actual shade of color.

Thanks for the web address. It's neat to see the varying shades of Beagles.

Smeagle...the sad thing is that is how she is referred to on her AKC paperwork too which can be misleading to some people. When and if we decide to breed her (after her full medical check) I will be sure to advertise her pups the way they truly are. Chocolates, Lemons, Tan/White, Red/White, Black/tans, tri-color, etc... The pedigrees are subjective though I guess since I can't be there in the past.

Jersey is very cute. I guess time will tell if Sulli's nose will darken or if she just has a light colored nose. It's no biggy either way as I will love her no matter what color her nose is. lol

I forgot to answer smeagle's question. I do not show my dogs. I wouldn't have the slightest idea how to get started in doing so, but I do think it would be a lot of fun.

I need someone local to be a mentor so I can watch and learn at first and then I would love to do it. All my dogs have full AKC registration papers. That is the only way I will purchase them. I am quite certain that my male would do well if I could ever teach him to stand up for an examination. All he does is lays down and flips over so you can rub his belly. lol I know...that is my fault for not actually training my dogs, but he has been that way since we purchased him at 5 weeks.

Thank you for the information barking mad. Who knows if I will ever get around to being brave enough to try to show any of the dogs. Maybe a few little local shows by the local breeding groups. We will see.
