These days, most beagles are kept as family pets instead of being bred as hunting dogs. It’s easy to see why – they’re incredibly cute, they’re wonderfully good-natured, and they’re the perfect size for many owners. You can’t help but love it, can’t you?
Beagles aren’t all cuteness and puppy kisses – they can still hold down a job, as they have one of the best senses of smell among dogs. As a result, they are often called upon to assist humans with their noses.
Several British hunters still use these canines as tracking companions.
While beagles are clearly a beloved breed, some people have chosen to mix them with other designer dog breeds to produce unusual (and sometimes even cuter) mixed-breed puppies.
Here are some of our favorites so that you can decide if one of these beagle mixed breeds is right for you.
What Is a Beagle?
Currently, the Beagle is the 6th most popular dog in the United States. Their first use dates back to the 16th century when rabbits were hunted with them. AKC accepted them in 1885.
Known for their excellent sense of smell, these pups are extremely popular as working dogs, working in the police, military, and search and rescue.
Also, beagles make wonderful family dogs because they are very affectionate. Breeding them with other lovable dogs makes them so desirable. Their mild temperament and lack of energy can make them the perfect companion to an active dog. You won’t have a quiet life with one of these pups on your hands, however. They have a great spirit and love for life.
Type of Mix Beagle Breeds
Bea-Tzu (Beagle X Shih-Tzu)
Known for its warmth, loving nature, and compassion, the Bea-Tzu is a mix between a beagle and a shih-tzu that tends to inherit the best of both parent dogs. This is a pretty social puppy, and they love to play with other puppies and receive human attention.
Exceptionally good-natured, these pups make dazzling additions to a variety of homes, though they may not work well with very young children. Peppermints are usually preferred by older kids. There’s no doubt you’ll fall in love with the Shih Tzu Beagle cross.
The Bagel (Beagle X Basset Hound)
This mixed-breed doggo is obviously cute, but we can’t get over how great his nose must be! When you combine the amazing sense of smell beagles have with the similar olfactory abilities of basset hounds, you get a dog like no other!
These excellent family dogs may be a little mischievous, but they are almost always friendly and love to be around people, so they make excellent companions for kids and other pets in the family. Now they can get into trouble together!
(Beagle X Husky) The Beaski or Busky
This adorable mix of a beagle and husky is a medium-sized dog with the characteristics of both purebred parent breeds. She inherited the black baby blues from her husky parent, who had floppy ears and a brown mask. The Husky parent might even have bright blue eyes in a Beagle Husky mix.
Beaskis tend to be energetic and determined workers, so this little one is no exception. Play, run, and jump as much as possible with any new Beaski you add to your family.
However, cat owners may want to consider another mixed-breed dog, as huskies and husky mixes often do not get along with cats.
The Puggle (Beagle X Pug)
Take a moment to admire this canine’s cuteness! You’ve got to be kidding me! This Puggle is definitely one of our favorites, but it’s unlikely that all Puggles are this cute.
Puggles are sociable, outgoing, and loving dogs that get along well with other dogs in the family. This is because they are the result of pug and beagle crossbreeding. Most will only grow 12 to 14 inches tall, so they’re pretty pint-sized.
In spite of their endearing nature, Puggles can be a bit stubborn – especially when it comes to training. It is always important to be patient and to reinforce positive behavior. Your beagle-pug mix will soon become the best-behaved dog in the neighborhood if you keep at it.
Coagle or Bocker (Beagle X Cocker Spaniel)
This fantastic four-footer combines a sweet-natured and mild-mannered beagle with a sprightly and sporting cocker spaniel!
Coagles are popular mixed-breed puppies who make excellent companions for older children, seniors, and singles. Despite their love for cuddling on the couch, these adorable little beauties still need daily exercise and plenty of mental stimulation to thrive.
Beaglemation (Beagle X Dalmatian)
Spot (see what we did there?) is a medium-sized dog with a very sensitive temperament.
This makes these pooches quite lovable, but you’ll have to train them gently to get the most out of them. Parents and teachers shouldn’t scold their children because they don’t like being reprimanded. Their high energy levels make them great running companions, and their playful nature makes them excellent for active families with a lot of kids.
Poogle (Beagle X Poodle)
It’s true that beagles aren’t the sharpest knives in the drawer, but their keen senses of smell, adventurous spirits, and cuteness make up for that. Long division isn’t something they do much of.
You get the best of both worlds when you cross a beagle with a poodle, one of the smartest dog breeds around! In addition, allergy sufferers may benefit from the poodle’s hypoallergenic coat.
It is important to understand, however, that incredible intelligence isn’t always ideal. Super smart puppies often need lots of mental stimulation to avoid becoming mischievous. Keep your Poogle busy to prevent him from getting into trouble.
The dogs, on the other hand, are more than happy to demonstrate all their skills, including basic obedience training and tricks.
Beago (Beagle X Golden Retriever)
In addition to being easy-going by nature, Beagos make great pets for homes with children because they are created by crossing a beagle with one of the best and most popular breeds for first-time owners. These excellent companions are more cuddly than purebred beagles due to their golden retriever parents.
In addition to being smart pups, they are also willing to learn basic obedience if properly motivated with positive training techniques. The golden retriever parents of your Beago beagle mix can gain weight, so keep an eye on your Beago’s waistline.
Borkie (Beagle X Yorkshire Terrier)
Borkies (a name we love!) are a cross between a beagle and a Yorkshire Terrier, making them perfect for homes with single owners and large families.
It is well known that Borkie puppies are intelligent, loyal, and loving of their closest family members. Almost all Yorkie mixes are pretty sweet from the moment they’re born, and they thrive on any attention you can give them.
Nevertheless, Borkies love to use their voices and do not mind yakking and yapping all day long. When you head to work each day, make sure they have plenty of entertainment options, or your neighbors will complain.
The Beagle or Beagador (Beagle and Labrador Retriever)
When a beagle is crossed with the world’s most popular dog breed, what do you get? With a sweet disposition, beagadors are friendly, enthusiastic, and playful family pets. A Beagador can display any of three coat colors, so you can choose from several shades.
During the day, the Labrador Beagle mix will follow family members around, solicit tasty treats, and beg for scritches, but you can distract him by flinging a tennis ball whenever you need to! Don’t let your Beagador get bored – they’ll get into mischief if they’re not entertained.
Malteagle (Beagle X Maltese)
This powder puff of cuteness is perfect for kids because they can’t get enough playtime! You can expect them to follow your kids around all day and all night!
Malteagles are, however, fairly difficult to train. As a result of the long, beautiful, smooth coats their Maltese parents contributed to the crossbreed, they also require regular grooming. Although you can learn to perform this grooming yourself, most owners prefer to leave it to the professionals.
Beagi (Beagle X Corgi)
Despite his diminutive size, Beagi (who is likely to top out at around 14 inches tall) is quite a social animal. It is imperative to socialize with them well while they’re young because they may become overprotective or territorial at times. Due to their livestock-herding roots, they may also spend all day corralling your kids and other pets.
Corgis and Beagles are extremely loyal and sweet dogs that form life-long relationships with their owners and caregivers.
Pomeagle (Beagle X Pomeranian)
In general, pomeragles are small dogs with a high level of intelligence and affection. When trained, owners must be firm and patient to maintain their constant interest, as they suffer from some attention deficits due to their curiosity.
Due to their ability to adapt well to small living spaces, such as apartments, Pomeagles are ideal dogs for older people and people with limited space.
The Cheagle (Beagle X Chihuahua)
These pooch-pairs produce affectionate, spirited, sociable, and fun-loving dogs (largely because of their Chihuahua parents).
These little guys and gals don’t have a lot of energy, so you’ll need to give them plenty of daily exercise despite their awesome traits. In addition to keeping them healthy and happy, this will also prevent them from developing problematic behaviors like jumping and barking at strangers.
An active owner looking for a wet-nosed companion should consider Cheagles.
Beashund or Doxle (Beagle X Dachshund)
Before we discuss Doxies and what makes them so special, let’s take a minute to look at that face again. We promise it’ll make your day better!
Doxies get along well with other animals if you are already a pet owner because they have a friendly disposition. You’ll spend hours rolling around on the floor with Doxie, who is part beagle, part dachshund, and loves your undivided attention.
It may be a challenge to housebreak this pepperiness (dachshunds are notorious for this), but with time and patience, you should be able to teach him the rules of poopin’ and pein’.
Beagle Shepherd (Beagle X German Shepherd)
It is a great idea to get a German shepherd-beagle mix as a loyal companion if you want a loyal dog. It doesn’t matter what trick you teach these active pups, so long as you offer treats, they’ll learn it.
The German shepherd parent will cause these mixes to shed quite a bit. For owners who like a tidy house, they aren’t the best mixed-breed mutt.
Boglens (Beagle X Boston Terriers)
You can’t deny it: Teagles are cute as can be! They’re all adorable, but we prefer the ones with brindle markings in their coats (like the one above). These furry friends are usually silly, so you can expect endless antics from them.
It’s important to keep your new pooch busy if you choose one of these mixed-breed dogs. Teagles tend to be stubborn and require plenty of activity to burn off their high energy levels. These loving and affectionate dogs make excellent household companions, and they’re pretty tidy too!
A Beeglier (Beagle Crossed With Cavalier King Charles Spaniel)
The friendly Cavalier King Charles spaniel is mixed with the curious beagle to create this adorable mutt. Spending time with family and friends is important to this sweet canine cross.
A beagle is a sweetheart who prefers to live in a home where someone is usually nearby to keep them company. As well as playing, they make excellent couch companions.
Raggle (Beagle X Rat Terrier)
A loyal and loving addition to any active family home, the beagle-rat-terrier mix is a small and powerful bundle of dynamite. After he’s been properly trained, he will become a delightful, endearing, and entertaining pet who captivates everyone he meets.
In squirrel and rabbit country, keep your new pooch on a leash, since rat terriers have quite a prey drive!
Beabull (Beagle X Bulldog)
A bulldog pup often inherits its underbite and wrinkles from his bulldog parent, while a beagle pup inherits floppy ears and a beagle coat pattern from his beagle parent.
The result? Utterly ridiculous levels of cuteness!
Bearbulls make excellent pets for young kids because they are playful, lovable, and full of energy. If your pooch develops a bulldog-like build, you may have trouble finding harnesses and clothes – their barrel-chested shape can make finding the right size tricky.
Despite their fearlessness, these fearless hounds require sufficient exercise, regular grooming, and proper training. All day long, they need human companionship or the companionship of other pets. Freestyle running in a properly enclosed dog park is a fun exercise for you and your beagle because beagles get along with other dogs. The beagle instinctively bays and barks when it detects a smell. However, it may also become a problem barker due to boredom or separation anxiety, and training may help.
Though they may sometimes appear lazy on the surface, beagles have loads of energy and need regular exercise to use it up. This is even more so than other dogs. Dogs may release their mischievous nature if they are not restrained. Walk your dog once or twice daily and give it plenty of space to run and play. This will result in at least one hour of exercise a day.
The beagle has a short, water-resistant coat that sheds moderately to heavily. Routine basic grooming is all that is necessary to keep beagles looking their finest. Luckily, their coat doesn’t pick up much debris, so you won’t need frequent baths or cleaning up what your dog tracks into the house.
Be sure to keep their floppy ears clean to prevent ear infections. Also, remember to trim your dog’s nails regularly to prevent overgrowth, which can affect his gait. Maintaining good oral health requires brushing your dog’s teeth at least twice a week.
Your dog’s mind as well as his body will be exercised by sniffing everything along your walks since they are scent hounds. If your dog gets a scent that he wants to track, you will need good leash control and training to keep him under control.
Without proper obedience training, beagles can become unruly and defiant due to their strong-willed nature. In order for your dog to obey your commands, you must make training fun and interesting for them.
Breeding a Beagle with another purebred dog creates an array of new puppies, all with their own personalities and traits. It doesn’t matter whether you’re looking for an athletic working dog or a smaller pup to snuggle up with on your lap, there’s a Beagle mix for you. Depending on your needs, the Beagle makes the perfect pet for anyone, thanks to its loving nature. You can choose from one of these Beagle mixes.
Beagle Mix Common Health Issues
Beagle mixes can inherit either parent’s genetic health concerns, but in general, they suffer from the ailments of beagles. Hybrids are typically healthy, but minor issues should always be kept in mind. Reagles, for instance, have epilepsy.
There is no guarantee of a dog’s life expectancy, but research can teach you a few things. Generally, beagles live between 12 and 15 years.
The beagle should not be left alone for more than four to five hours a day, like most other dogs. The longer they are left alone, the more likely they are to develop separation anxiety. The following symptoms may be present: Digging, chewing, and destructive behavior.
Beagles are not only excellent hunting dogs and loyal companions, but they are also happy-go-lucky, funny, and ‘thanks to their pleading expression’ cute. They are generally easygoing and enjoy company since they were bred to hunt in packs.
