I went through something very similar with my newest addition (who is 18 months now). She would harass my 3 yo dog, who likes to be in control of things, into playing with her. The older dog has gotten good at ignoring her, and not engaging when she doesn't want to, and the puppy now takes the hint. But it took a while for them to figure it out, and while they were doing that, I'd put the puppy in a pen or a crate when she was getting too rambunctious.

I wouldn't worry to much about the size difference, it sounds like your beagle is pretty good at self-handicapping. As your puppy matures, she'll learn how to settle better, and she'll probably start listening to your older dog better.

When the beagle seems done, or just when you want them to settle down, put the puppy in a pen or a crate with a stuffed kong.
