When a breeder is giving you a verbal description of a beagle, sometimes they will say "full saddle". This means that the puppy/dogs back is completely black with little to no white markings to break it up. When the breeder is referring to an "open marked" dog or pup this means that there is a considerable amount of white on its back breaking up that would be full saddle. Either way, you can rest assured your puppy is precious no matter the markings!
There are many different ways a beagle can be marked up and I would like to go over some of those with you! The first one I want to address seems to be popular among puppy owners. This is the white stripe between the eyes that most internet pictures have, it's called a "blaze". Most of the time the blaze will be bright white, but in some cases when the puppy is heavily ticked there will also be some ticking in the blaze. Not all dogs will have a blaze but its something I am always happy to see!
