Not all Beagles will howl, but most will bark when confronted with strange circumstances, and some will bay (also known as "speaking", "giving tongue", or "opening") when they catch the scent of potential quarry.
BEAGLE - The Beagle is a breed of small to medium-sized dog. A member of the hound group. Beagles are intelligent, and popular pets because of their size, even temper, and lack of inherited health problems. The modern breed was developed in Great Britain around the 1830s from several breeds, including the Talbot Hound, the North Country Beagle, the Southern Hound, and possibly the Harrier. Snoopy of the comic strip Peanuts has been promoted as "the world's most famous beagle".
Within this setting the tiny Beagle was well matched towards the hare, as unlike Harriers they would not rapidly finish the hunt, but due to their excellent scent-tracking abilities and stamina they were nearly assured to ultimately catch the hare.
