If you are looking for pictures, this is the book for you. But if you are looking for a manual that has all the little details that you didn't think you'd need to know, get "Beagles for Dummies"

I bought this book because my brother recently adopted a Beagle named Charlie and he looks just like the picture of the dog on the front. I did read through it and it looked informative.
