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.’
