What’s a Beagle?
If you don’t know what a Beagle is by now, then your life is about to change. These dogs are some of the smallest breeds to come out of the Hound Group. However, they have big and bright personalities.
They’ve appeared as far back as the 14th century, originally bred in the United Kingdom. The modern Beagle is much larger than the ancestors. In fact, hunters used to carry Beagles in their saddlebags and even pockets.
Beagles sport a short, yet dense coat that’s fairly easy to maintain. In addition, their coats come in your typical hound colors: tan, black, white or a mixed variation.
They all have big brown eyes with their signature droopy long hound ears. All Beagles have a sturdy erect tail with a relatively athletic and muscular frame.
Beagles have some of the best noses of any animal in the kingdom. How good? Their nose has 220 million scent receptors compared to a human’s 6 million receptors.
The Beagle’s Temperament
The three best words to describe a Beagle are: lively, energetic and curious. It’s always a great time when playing with a Beagle because their good-natured temperaments will put a smile on your face.
They are very inquisitive dogs and because of their sharp sense of smell and strong instincts to hunt, they’ve been unfairly labeled as a dumb dog breed. Training can be difficult when you’re able so smell so many different scents that distract you.
In the end, the Beagle is an affectionate and versatile dog with a lot of skills if guided in the right path. Whether you’re looking for a hunting partner or a family companion, Beagles are a great choice.
Most Popular Beagle Mixes
There’s a lot to love about a Beagle, but Beagle mixes give you a unique spin on your classic hound. Let’s explore 30 bizarre, yet adorable Beagle mixes that you really need to know about.

The Frengle is the combination of two iconic European dog breeds – the French Bulldog and Beagle. Both these dogs make the top 10 most popular breed list every year. As a result, the Frengle is a widely popular designer dog.
For the most part, the Frengle is playful and cheerful. However, they can be stubborn at times. This means new owners should expect to have a lot of patience during training sessions.

The Beaglier is a designer dog consisting of half Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and half Beagle. Although neither dogs are Australian breeds, the Beaglier was developed in Australia during the 1990’s.
The Australian breeders wanted to develop a “more balanced” Beagle without the intense prey-drive and scent-drive. In the end, they got a social and energetic dog breed with a great personality.
They can be playful, but also loving and gentle with people. Plus, they do well with kids and other dogs. This makes them ideal for families that don’t need to tap into a Beagle’s inherent skillset.
Parents: Jack Russell Terrier and Beagle mix.
The Jack-A-Bee is one of my favorite Terrier mixes, which also happens to mixed with Beagle as well. Because they’re such new hybrids, there isn’t a standard and a lot of variation can occur depending on parentage.
What we do know is that these dogs were developed in the United States, despite both breeds originating from the United Kingdom. Both parent breeds are similar in personality, showing traits of independence, intelligence, devotion and friendliness.
Physically, their face resembles that of the Beagle, while the body is more similar to a Jack Russell Terrier. The Jack-A-Bee doesn’t require much maintenance, however, they do tend to shed moderately.
If you’re looking for an all-around Beagle mix, the Jack-A-Bee is one to highly consider.
Parents: Pomeranian and Beagle mix.
The Pomeagle is a small affectionate dog, developed by crossing the Beagle with a Pomeranian. They are a true companion dog, retaining all the good personality traits from both parent breeds.
Though intelligent, Pomeagles tends to get easily distracted because of their curious personalities. Much like the Beagle, a Pomeagle will investigate and follow interesting scents they may encounter. So, it’s important to keep track of them.
They can be stubborn at times, especially during training. It requires a lot of patience when training a Pomeagle. However, with positive reinforcement and interesting ways of stimulation, they’ll be engaged in training.
Patience and affection is the key to winning over your Pomeagle.
5. Beagle Shepherd
Parents: German Shepherd and Beagle mix.
Both the German Shepherd and Beagle are extremely popular with unique skillsets and temperaments. It only makes sense to crossbreed the two. The result is a medium-sized designer dog with the most coveted personality traits.
Beagle Shepherds are highly intelligent and faithful dogs. Like with German Shepherds, they’re also excellent watch or guard dogs for your home because of their inherent protective instincts.
These dogs are reserved for those that have an active lifestyle, as they require a ton of physical stimulation. German Shepherds are some of the most diligent dogs from the Working Group, and the Beagle Shepherd can inherit that same work ethic too.

Beaglemans are vigilant and active, with a natural instinct to protect. With the combination of alertness and sharp smell, there are few things that can get past a Beagleman. If a intruder is nearby, you can count on them to let you know.
Although they’re great at their jobs, they can be a loving member of the family as well. Keep them busy with physical and mental stimulation and you’ll have a highly adaptable and intelligent companion dog.
Parents: Maltese and Beagle mix.
With the growing popularity of designer dogs, it’s only a matter of time before they mix the Beagle with the cutest dog breed they could find – the Maltese. As a result, the Malteagle is perfect for those looking for the ultimate lap dog.

Parents: Welsh Corgi and Beagle mix.
The Beagi is a gorgeous designer dog, developed from the Beagle and Welsh Corgi. What you get is a charming, fun and loyal dog breed perfect for all types of owners.
With Corgi mixes, they’ll always inherit the signature short-stature and stubby legs. The Beagi is no exception. But it’s their low-to-the-ground frame that many owners love because they think it’s absolutely adorable.
Though highly intelligent, the Beagi can be a little stubborn as seen with the parent breeds. In turn, this could make obedience training a little more difficult for new owners.
The good news is, they’re patient dogs and get along with just about anyone with the proper socialization training.

Parents: Miniature Pinscher and Beagle mix.
Also called the “Min Pin,” the Meagle is a unique blend of the Miniature Pinscher and Beagle. They’re fun and happy dogs, but retain a lot of the personality traits of the Beagle. It’s not necessarily a bad thing.
Just make sure to keep your Meagle in check. Because of their heightened sense of smell, they tend to follow their nose quite often. They’re very curious dogs but the curiosity could get them into some trouble.
Meagles require a great deal of socialization training as a puppy. To ensure you have an obedient and affectionate dog, expose them to as many people and dogs early on.
Without socialization, you can expect some mischievous behavior in the future.
Parents: Boxer and Beagle mix.
The Boggle, also sometimes spelled “Bogle,” is a hybrid dog developed from crossing a Boxer and Beagle. Boggles can vary depending on parentage and individual dogs, but there are some traits you know you’ll get.
Most Boggles are built with a strong and sturdy frame thanks to the Boxer side. Some may look skinny, but they’re sneaky athletic. They tend to inherit physical traits from the Beagle side, such as the long droopy ears, deep chest and the elongated body.
It’s worth noting that Boggles may or may not inherit the Beagle’s trademark nose. If so, expect their curiosity to get to them. They’ll easily get distracted as they’re exposed to various new scents.
Parents: Chihuahua and Beagle mix.
The Cheagle, or should I call them…Chibeagle? Chi-bea? Regardless of official name, this Chihuahua Beagle mix is the perfect combination of two iconic small dog breeds.
When you cross the two, you get a playful and affectionate dog that loves to be around owners. In fact, they tend to develop a great bond with the owner, making them some of the best Beagle mix lap dogs.
Thanks to the Chihuahua side, the Cheagle tends to be smaller than the Beagle. So while they may inherit the amazing nose of the Beagle, they’re simply too small to deploy on the field for hunting trips.
Still, they’re adorable and fun-loving. I’d recommend them for those looking for a loving lap dog.

13. Bagle Hound
Parents: Basset Hound and Beagle mix.
If you asked me to develop a hybrid dog breed with the best sense of smell, the Bagle Hound would probably be it. Both parents, the Basset Hound and Beagle, arguable have the two best noses in the dogdom.
Physically, they’re a fairly equal balance of the two parents. Bagle Hounds don’t have a body as long as the Basset Hound. On the other hand, the legs are longer as a result of the Beagle side. However, the droopy wide ears are still very noticeable.
These designer dogs can come with a ton of energy like the Beagle or a lazy demeanor like the Basset Hound, depending on the parent. More than likely, you’ll get something in between.
Parents: Siberian Husky and Beagle mix.
A cross of the Husky and Beagle, the Beaski is an active designer dog with a sweet and good-natured personality. Both parents are high energy, so you can expect the same with the Beaski.
In terms of physical characteristics, they can vary a lot depending on which side they inherit more from. Some will look like a big Beagle, while others may look like a small husky. Either way, they’re fantastic hybrid dogs.
They may be easier to train than a pure Husky, but they can also have a stubborn streak. They’re typically great companions, who’s able to make friends with both humans and other dogs.
Just make sure they get proper socialization at an early age to minimize any future mishaps with these dogs.

Parents: Rat Terrier and Beagle mix.
The Raggle, otherwise known as the Rat Terrier Beagle mix, is a small hybrid dog with a high level of energy. Combine this with their strong prey-drive (thanks to the Terrier side) and you may have your hands full.
Don’t get me wrong, the Raggle is a great companion dog. They just need more socialization than most Beagle mixes to subdue their inner instincts. With that in check, they can get along great with children.
Raggles are probably better for a single-dog homes, as they tend to get aggressive with other dogs, even with socialization. But with these dogs, the most important part is to get them their daily physical activity.
Parents: Cocker Spaniel and Beagle mix.
Sometimes referred to as the Speagle, the Bocker is a cross between the Cocker Spaniel and Beagle. Though small, the Bocker is surprisingly strong with a compact and muscular build. Most of the time they come with the Cocker Spaniel’s long fur and in an array of colors.

If you can keep up with a Beaglemation, they’re worth a long hard look.

Though the Bulldog side can make them a little stubborn, they’re very mild and easy-going dogs. Plus, they’re as affectionate and loyal as any other dog breed.

Parents: Basenji and Beagle mix.
Half Basenji and half Beagle, the Baseagle is really an interesting mix – mostly because of the contrast in temperaments. Beagles have been known to be very vocal dogs, whereas the quiet Basenjis don’t bark.
The Baseagle will be somewhere in between. They’re calm and quiet dogs, but not as silent as the Basenji. Because both parents are great hunters, you can expect an equally great hunter.

The Beacol is the result of crossing a Bearded Collie with a Beagle. Not only do they vary in size, but they can vary in coat texture and color. However, they are highly intelligent canines with a personality suitable for active families.

The Reagle is an unusual cross of the Rottweiler and Beagle. The hybrid is known to be highly devoted to the family and very loving with the right environment.
