Why a beagle can lead you to find love


IF YOU’RE a singleton looking for love – buy a beagle. Owners of the cute hound get chatted up more than any others, according to new research.

A poll of 2,200 dog owners by The Kennel Club found that 22 per cent were asked out on a date while walking their canine companion in the past year.

The top five breeds for romance were: beagle

(58 per cent); springer spaniel (53); shepherd (50); corgi (49); golden retriever (45).

Kennel Club spokesman

Bill Lambert said: ‘Dogs are a great ice-breaker when strangers may otherwise not look twice at each other.’
