Beagle Dog Names in Pop Culture
Snoopy is Charlie Brown's Beagle dog. He lives outside in a red wooden doghouse, and his favorite playmate - other than Charlie Brown - is a woodpecker named Woodstock. Snoopy appeared in new cartoon features for fifty years. He first appeared in the Charles Schulz' cartoon comic strip (published in newspapers). Schulz had originally intended to refer to him as "Sniffy" (which would be a great reference to the fact that Beagles are scent hounds); however, after finding out that there was already a cartoon Sniffy, Schulz decided to give him the Snoopy moniker. Snoopy appeared in comic strips until 2000.
At first, Snoopy was much like Petey from the Little Rascals television show - he seemed to belong to each member of the group. However, a few cartoons showed Snoopy sleeping in Charlie Brown's room, and people began to accept Snoopy as Charlie's dog. Snoopy has a total of seven siblings: Spike, Belle, Marbles, Olaf, Andy, Molly, and Rover. Before he left his family, Snoopy and his family sang in a choir of at least fifty Beagles.
Because he could be rather obstinate, Charlie Brown's family sent Snoopy to the Ace Obedience School. Snoopy is a highly imaginative dog. Once particular cartoon features Snoopy and Woodstock flying a plane in the fashion of the Red Baron (Snoopy's character is referred to as the Flying Ace). He loves pizza, root beer, and chocolate chip cookies. However, he absolutely detests cats and will often have spats with the neighbor's cat. Although Snoopy is a working dog by breed, he loves to sleep and can be quite lazy at times.
His fantasy life is much more eventful than his day-to-day life. In addition to his role as the Flying Ace, he also plays the part of Joe Cool and a published writer. Snoopy has even placed himself on a space shuttle headed to the moon. Snoopy is a childhood favorite of many. Children young and old still usher in the holidays by viewing his classic cartoons, and he delights viewers from all over the world.

Community Dogs with Beagle Names
When we got him, his name was Beau. I wanted to change his name at first, possibly to Bo. Both names are pronounced the same, but my favorite comedian is Bo Burnham. I got him for Christmas, we walked into the garage and my parents had snuck the puppy in while we were asleep! I decided to keep it as Beau, because he may not be BEAUtiful on the outside, but he’s BEAUtiful on the inside. 😂 (p.s. he’s a mix of beagle but we don’t know the other breed, we think it’s Boxer.)
We got her for Christmas so we didn't get to name her.
