Beagles are affectionate dogs with an insatiable curiosity – largely thanks to their keen sense of smell. But because of their pleasantly mild temperaments, Beagles have exploded in popularity as of late. And, it’s really not hard to see why.
Currently, Beagles are the 6th most popular dog breed in the United States. Not only are they some of the best family dogs, but many answer to a higher calling by serving as police, military or search and rescue dogs. What can’t the Beagle do?
As prevalent dogs, it’s not a surprise we have so many wonderful Beagle mixes. Their calm and docile demeanor is the perfect complement to highly energetic dogs. That said, here are our 30 favorite Beagle mixes you really have to see.

What’s a Beagle?
Beagles are some of the smallest breeds to come out of the Hound Group. However, they have big and bright personalities that transcend their small statue. Plus, they’re frequently called the Goldilocks of dogs due to their mild manners.
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 (pocket beagles).
Beagles sport a short, yet dense double coat that’s relatively easy to maintain. Their coats can come in your typical hound colors: tan, black, white or a mixed variation. However, Beagles will shed and require regular brushing.
Beagles are smart dogs. They figure things out. She figured out how to push up the gate at my old house with ease. Never ever assume a beagle can’t figure it out.– Nightbird47 (Beagle Owner)
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. They arguably have the best noses in the business, which makes them ideal search dogs.
But because of their sense of smell, they’ve been unfairly labeled as a low intelligent dog breed. Training can be difficult when you’re flooded with so many different scents and smells that could distract you from learning.
The three best words to describe a Beagle are: lively, energetic and curious. You can always expect a great time when playing with a Beagle. With ease, their good-natured personality and temperament will put a smile on your face.
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 32 bizarre, yet adorable Beagle mixes. If we’ve missed one, let us know in the comments section below!
Parents: French Bulldog x Beagle mix
The Frengle is the combination of two iconic European dog breeds – the French Bulldog and the Beagle. Both these dogs make the top 10 most popular breed list every single 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 with training. But despite their flaws, they’re fantastic companions and family dogs.
They love entertaining people, especially older kids, and get along great with any pets you may have. They may be small, but they’re built fairly sturdy with a lot of muscle. With the right family, there are few things these little dogs can’t overcome.

Parents: Cavalier King Charles x Beagle mix
The Beaglier is a hybrid dog consisting of half Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and half Beagle. Although neither dogs are Australian breeds (they’re European dogs), the Beaglier was actually bred in Australia during the 1990’s.
The Australian breeders wanted to develop a “more balanced” Beagle without an intense prey-drive and scent-drive. In the end, they got an outgoing and energetic dog breed with a great personality. It worked out and Beagliers became a hit!
They can be playful, but also loving and gentle with people they know. Plus, they do well with kids and other dogs. With that said, Beagliers make the ideal pets for families that don’t need to tap into a Beagle’s inherent skillset.
Parents: Jack Russell Terrier x Beagle mix
The Jack-A-Bee is one of my favorite Terrier mixes, which combined the lively Jack Russell with the Beagle. 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 very similar, showing qualities of independence, intelligence, devotion and friendliness.
Physically, their face resembles that of the Beagle, while the body is more similar to a Terrier. A huge plus: the Jack-A-Bee doesn’t require much maintenance. However, they will likely shed moderately and still need regular brushing and bathing.

Parents: Pomeranian x Beagle mix
The Pomeagle is a small affectionate dog, developed by crossing the Beagle with the cheerful Pomeranian. They are true companion dogs, retaining all the most desirable personality traits from both parent breeds.
Though intelligent, a Pomeagle tends to get easily distracted by its inquisitive nature. Much like the Beagle, a Pomeagle will investigate and follow interesting scents that come their way. So, it’s important to keep track of them.
They can be stubborn at times, especially with training. You’ll need to show plenty of patience when training these dogs. However, positive reinforcement and new methods of stimulation is key to keeping them engaged in training.

5. Beagle Shepherd
Parents: German Shepherd x Beagle mix
Both the German Shepherd and Beagle are very popular breeds with unique skillsets fit for law enforcement. So it only makes sense to crossbreed the two, right? The result is a medium-sized designer dog with the most coveted personality traits.
The courageous Beagle Shepherds are highly intelligent and faithful dogs. Like with German Shepherds, they’re also excellent guard dogs because of their inherent protective instincts. If you combine this with the Beagle’s nose, no intruder will slip past them.
We recommend Beagle Shepherds for those that have an active lifestyle, as they require a ton of physical stimulation. GSDs are some of the most diligent dogs from the Working Group, and the Beagle Shepherd can inherit that same work ethic too.

Parents: Doberman x Beagle mix
No, the Beagleman isn’t a character out of a horror flick. Rather, the Beagleman was developed by crossbreeding the Doberman Pinscher with the Beagle. Fortunately, they retained all the top traits that make the Doberman such an effective watchdog.
Thanks to the Doberman side, Beaglemans are vigilant and active dogs, with a natural instinct to protect. When you pair this with the Beagle’s sense of smell, there are few things that can get past a Beagleman. If a intruder is nearby, they will know.
While they’re superb at their jobs, Beaglemans can be loving members of the family as well. If you can keep them busy with physical and mental stimulation, you’ll have a highly adaptable and intelligent companion dog.

Parents: Maltese x Beagle mix
With the growing demand for designer dogs, it was only a matter of time before they mixed the Beagle with the oh-so adorable Maltese. The result is as you’d imagined: the ultimate lap dog with good looks and sweet personalities.
The Malteagle is perfect for owners of types. They’re extremely social and affectionate dogs, primarily inherited from the Maltese side. But the Beagle side can bring a calm gentleness that makes them great dogs for seniors and children.
For those looking for a Beagle mix to cuddle with, the Malteagle may be your best bet. They’ll certainly win over the hearts of you and everyone around them. Just spend an afternoon with a Malteagle and you’ll understand what I mean.

Parents: Chinese Pug x Beagle mix
The Puggle is as fun as he looks. Always full of energy and positivity, there’s a lot to love about this Beagle mix. As the hybrid of the Beagle and Pug, the Puggle has become fairly popular thanks to its charming personality and adorable looks.
They’re everything you expect in the perfect lap dog: calm, laid-back, easy-going, affectionate and loyal. Because both parent breeds are great with children, the Puggle is the same. They’re fun-loving but also spirited canines.
It’s worth noting that they do enjoy barking, which is definitely inherited from the Maltese side. To keep the barking in check, obedience training is essential. But with a face like the Puggle’s, is it really that big of a problem?

Parents: Welsh Corgi x Beagle mix
The Beagi is a gorgeous designer dog, developed from the Beagle and Pembroke Welsh Corgi. The two parent dogs are some of America’s favorite dogs, so the Beagi isn’t so shocking. What you get is a charming, fun and loyal dog breed.
With the Corgi genes, they’ll always inherit the signature short-stature and stubby legs. The Beagi is no exception. But it’s because of their low-to-the-ground frame that they’ve won over so many hearts of owners.
And while they’re intelligent dogs, the Beagi can be a little stubborn as seen with both parent breeds. The good news is, they’re patient dogs and get along with just about anyone given the proper socialization training.

Parents: Miniature Pinscher x Beagle mix
Also called the Min Pin, the Meagle is the unique blend of the spirited Miniature Pinscher and the Beagle. They’re fun dogs with a positive vibe, though they retain much of the personality quirks of the Beagle. It’s not a bad thing.
Just make sure to keep your Meagle in check when it comes to playing outdoors. Because of the Beagle’s heightened sense of smell and the pinscher’s playful mischief, they tend to follow their noses quite often.
They’re very curious dogs but the curiosity could get them into some trouble. Meagles require a plenty of socialization training. To ensure you have an obedient and affectionate dog, expose them to as many people early on.
Parents: Boxer x Beagle mix
The Boggle, sometimes spelled “Bogle,” is a new hybrid dog developed by crossbreeding a Boxer with the Beagle. Boggles can vary depending on parentage, but there are some traits and qualities we know they’ll inherit.
For instance, most Boggles are bred with a strong and sturdy frame, thanks to the Boxer side. Some may look skinny, but they’re actually sneaky athletic. However, expect to see physical traits that resemble the Beagle, such as the long ears and body.
It’s worth noting that Boggles may or may not inherit the Beagle’s trademark nose. If so, they’ll easily get distracted as they’re exposed to various new scents. Still, the Boxer’s calmness and bravery can ground them.
Parents: Chihuahua x Beagle mix
The Cheagle, or should I call them…Chibeagle? Chi-bea? Regardless of the official name, this Chihuahua Beagle mix is the perfect combination of two iconic dog breeds that produces the ideal balance in temperament.
When you cross the two, you get playful and affectionate dogs that love their humans. While the Chi’s protectiveness may shine through, the Beagle’s mildness balances this out. As such, a Cheagle can make a decent watchdog in the home.
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 or search & rescue missions.

13. Bagle Hound
Parents: Basset Hound x 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, arguably have the two best noses in the canine kingdom.
Physically, Bagle Hounds inherit an equal balance of the two parents. They don’t have a body as long as the Basset Hound. On the other hand, the legs are longer thanks to the Beagle side. However, their droopy wide ears are still very noticeable.
These designer dogs may have a ton of energy like the Beagle, or the “lazy” demeanor seen in the Basset Hound. It all depends on the parents and the individual Bagle. Though more often than not, you’ll get something in between.
Parents: Siberian Husky x Beagle mix
A deliberate cross of the Siberian Husky and Beagle, the Beaski is a high-energy designer dog with a surprisingly sweet and good-natured personality. Both parents are very active, 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. That is, some will look like a big Beagle, while others may look like a small husky. Either way, they’re going to be adorable.
Beaskis may be easier to train than a purebred Siberian Husky, but they tend to also have the occasional stubborn streak. But with a few hours of daily exercise, you’ll be able to keep their focus during obedience training, while minimizing negative behaviors.

Parents: Rat Terrier x Beagle mix
The Raggle, otherwise known as the Rat Terrier and Beagle mix, is a small designer dog with a surprisingly high level of energy. Combine this with the strong prey-drive from the terrier side, and you may have your hands full.
Don’t get me wrong, the Raggle is a great companion dog. They’ll just need more socialization than most Beagle mixes to subdue their inner hunting instincts. After all, the Rat Terrier parent is one of the best ratters in the game.
Raggles are better for a single-dog homes, as they tend to get aggressive with other dogs or pets – even with socialization. But with these hybrids, the most important aspect is getting them their daily physical activity.
Parents: Cocker Spaniel x Beagle mix
Often referred to as the Speagle, the Bocker is the marvelous cross of the Cocker Spaniel and Beagle. The Bocker is surprisingly strong, sporting a compact muscular build while inheriting the spaniel’s long fur and colors.
Given the backgrounds of both parent breeds, the Bocker is quite versatile and can be show dogs or hunting companions. Even so, they’re mostly kept as loving family dogs because of their unwavering loyalty and affection.
Bockers are highly intelligent designer dogs that respond well to training, thanks to the Cocker Spaniel parent. Plus, they can get along great with all dogs, humans, kids and cats. They can also be a little territorial, making them excellent watchdogs.
Parents: Dalmatian x Beagle mix
The Beaglemation is one of the least obvious Beagle mixes, comprised of part Dalmatian and part Beagle. They’re a fairly recent designer dog so they’re difficult to come by. However, they can be great activity buddies if you can find one.
Courtesy of the Dalmatian parent, these dogs are very athletic and high in energy. They love to play with people, so except to spend a great deal of time entertaining and interacting with the Beaglemation. They enjoy playing catch, frisbee or going on long walks.
They can be a little protective, but they’ll most likely get along well with other dogs and humans. However, their intense prey-drive can be a problem for smaller animals, such as cats. Even if socialized early on, it will be risky.
Parents: Bulldog x Beagle mix
The Beabull is not a designer dog you see every day. They’re the bizarre cross of a Bulldog and Beagle, and they’ve been quietly capturing hearts with their attractive looks, loving manner and light-hearted temperaments.
Depending on the parents, a Beabull can look more like a Bulldog or Beagle. It really depends on the dominant genes. However, most Beabulls will retain the long droopy ears of the Beagle yet have the wrinkly skin and underbite of a Bulldog.
Though the Bulldog side can make them stubborn and independent dogs, they’re fairly calm and easy-going when in the home. Plus, they’re as affectionate, loyal and playful as any other Beagle mixes on this list.
Parents: Poodle x Beagle mix
The Poodle Beagle mix has many names: Beagapoo, Beapoo, Beadoodle or even Beaglepoo. With all these nicknames, you can probably guess they’re wildly popular Beagle mixes, and for good reason!
The Poogle is one of the most recognizable Beagle hybrids on the market with their iconic curly Poodle coats. However, they tend to vary in size depending on the size variation of the Poodle parent. With a Standard Poodle, they’ll be medium-sized dogs.
Poogles are very smart, thanks to the extraordinarily intelligent Poodle. Furthermore, they’re eager to please and thrive on human interaction, thus making them ideal playmates for kids. Bring home a Poogle and they’ll win you over in no time.

Parents: Golden Retriever x Beagle mix
Golden Retrievers are the ultimate family dog, which explains why they’re consistently the third most popular dog breed in America. With a retriever’s “golden” temperament, it makes sense to cross them with a highly versatile dog like the Beagle.
The result is the Beago, a medium-sized dog with all the great qualities of a Golden Retriever and the hunting instincts of a Beagle. Not only are they amazing family dogs, but also very eager to work – a trait often missing from purebred Goldens.
Despite the Golden Retriever genes, they don’t always inherit the trademark gold coat. In fact, they can come in brown, black, white, red, brindle, cream or a mix. The length of the coat can also vary depending on which side they inherit more from.

Parents: Labrador Retriever x Beagle mix
The Labrador Retriever has been the most popular breed for 28 years and counting. Beagles, on the other hand, are amazing in their own right. With two stand-out parents, the Beagador offers a unique twist to America’s favorite breed.
The typical Beagador is loyal and loving, much like the Labrador. Because both parents were natural hunters, they do have a high level of energy. As such, daily exercise to release any pent up energy is needed to avoid destructive behaviors.
As long as you have the time and patience to take care of a Beagador, they’re some of the top family dogs the world has to offer. They’ll take care of your family and children while providing a ton of entertainment for all.

Parents: Dachshund x Beagle mix
The Doxle, sometimes called the Beaschund, is a hybrid dog breed resulting from the cross of a Dachshund and Beagle. With the elongated body of the wiener dog and the signature ears of a Beagle, this hybrid seems all-too-familiar.
Doxles have long muzzles and big round eyes, which makes it near impossible to resist their “give me more treats” face. And despite their small size, they can make excellent watchdogs with their territorial and protective instincts.
Overall, Doxles are super-friendly dogs with a sweet disposition we see in both parent breeds. They can get along well with other dogs, pets or children if given the necessary socialization in puppyhood. Though, they do better with older kids.
23. Boglen Terrier
Parents: Boston Terrier x Beagle mix
The Boglen Terrier, or Boston Teagle, is a designer dog that crossbreeds the gentleman-like Boston Terrier with the classic Beagle. They were originally developed to create a family dog with a slightly bolder personality than the Beagle.
The Boglen Terrier is a charismatic and devoted dog breed, with the territorial instincts to be a great watchdog. Because they do have a ton of energy and can be a handful at times, we don’t recommend them for busy families and owners.
But if you can handle the Boglen Terrier, these hybrid dogs are very intelligent and respond very well to training. In fact, they love showing off new tricks and commands. They’ll go out of their way to please you however they can.
Parents: Yorkshire Terrier x Beagle mix
The adorable and petite Borkie is the cross of a Yorkshire Terrier and Beagle. They’re fun little lap dogs with all the best personality and physical traits of their parents. Borkies are full of life, capable of bringing joy into any household.
Though there’s no standard for this breed. However, Borkies will inherit the textured coat of the Yorkie and the trademark floppy ears of the Beagle. They may also have a muscular build as a result of the Beagle side, but also the large round eyes of the terrier.
Because both parents are natural-born hunters, the prey-instincts tend to pass down to the Borkie mix. You can expect these little dogs to have lively personalities, thus making them ideal family dogs and playmates for older children.

Parents: Shih Tzu x Beagle mix
The result of crossing a Shih Tzu with a Beagle is the elegant and graceful Bea-Tzu. They are popular due to their smarts, mild demeanors and lovely personalities. It’s actually difficult to pick out the flaws with this Beagle mix.
However, Bea-Tzus can be a little protective by nature, which means they can be solid small watchdogs. They’re best as companion dogs for single owners or small families, though it’s not a deal-breaker for large families.
The Bea-Tzus are loyal, affectionate and playful too. This makes them potential life-long friends for your children. In addition, they don’t require a lot of physical activity, but they do need quite a bit of attention from their loved ones.

26. Crested Beagle
Parents: Chinese Crested x Beagle mix
The Crested Beagle, or the Chinese Crested Beagle mix, is not something you’ll see everyday. In fact, they’re quite rare because their looks may not be for everyone. But you should never judge a book by it’s cover – or a dog by his fluff.
The looks of these designer dogs can vary greatly, with most dogs leaning towards resembling the Chinese Crested. The wiry coats of the Chinese Crested is usually present, but you may get the floppy ears and color patterns of the Beagle.
With that said, these dogs require relatively low maintenance. However, they’re best for those that live in warmer climate, as they have a very thin coat. And if you’re lucky, it’s possible the dog will inherit the hypoallergenic coat of the Shih Tzu.
RECOMMENDED: 17 Charming Chinese Dogs
Parents: Basenji x Beagle mix
Half Basenji and half Beagle, the Baseagle is really an interesting mix – mostly because of the contrast in temperaments. For example, Beagles have been known to be very vocal dogs, whereas the quiet Basenjis don’t bark.
The Baseagle will be somewhere in between the two. They’re calm and quiet dogs, but not as silent as the Basenji. Because both parent dogs are skilled hunters, you can expect an equally adept hunter should you take them down that path.
So if you’re looking for a hunting dog with a calmer demeanor, the Baseagle is a great option. Even if you don’t partake in hunting, they’re probably better off as a companion dog. They can be as affectionate and loyal as any dog, too.
Parents: Bearded Collie x Beagle mix
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. But with high intelligence and energy, these dogs are best suited for active families only.
The one thing to take notice is their strong-will. Beacols can provide a challenge for novice owners, as they require more patience and a firm hand. And to prevent destructive tendencies, you may need to exercise them for at least a hour a day.
They’ll need a lot of socialization in order to get along with other dogs and children. However, with such high prey-drive, Beacols are not suitable for families with cats or small pets. Even with small children, they can be troublesome.
29. Beagle Point
Parents: Pointer x Beagle mix
The Beagle Point is a hybrid of two of the finest hunting dogs, each with their own unique skillsets: the Beagle and Pointer. Beagles are great at tracking small game, but Pointers excel with locating and “pointing” toward birds.
Beagle Points are generally very active dogs with strong instincts. In other words, they may not be suitable for many families. The bold personalities tend to shine through, and they will demand a lot for physical activity.
Early socialization and obedience training is crucial for this designer dog. Plus, they love to bark and will require consistent obedience training to keep this in check. If you can’t provide this for a Beagle Point, i’d look elsewhere.

Parents: Rottweiler x Beagle mix
The Reagle is an unusual cross of the massive Rottweiler and more modest Beagle. The hybrid is known to be highly devoted to the family, much like the Rottweiler parent, and very loving given the ideal family environment.
As expected, the Reagle gets along great with children. They know how to interact with them, though I would still exercise caution when they’re playing with kids. The Rottweiler parent will bring a lot of heft and size into this hybrid.
Reagles tend to inherit the amazing nose of the Beagle, so expect them to have the urge to chase squirrels and rodents around the yard. In general, they’re people-loving dogs that enjoy clowning around with loved ones.

Parents: Shiba Inu x Beagle mix
The Shi-Beagle is a deliberate cross of the Japanese Shiba Inu and the Beagle. Both parents were bred for the same tracking job, thus the hybrid can be an extraordinary hunting dog. But off the field, they can make excellent lap dogs.
These Beagle mixes are formidable watchdogs, given the inherited alertness from the Shiba Inu parent. They’re sly and sneaky, much like Shibas. However, the keen sense of smell from the Beagle gives them an advantage in monitoring the environment.
Shi-Beagles are highly adaptable dogs, capable of living in apartments, homes with large yards or even a rural farm. Though they tend to develop close bonds with the family members, they’re also independent dogs that can be left alone.
32. Brittany Speagle
Parents: Brittany Spaniel x Beagle mix
The Brittany Speagle is an upbeat cross of the Brittany Spaniel and the Beagle. Given both the parents’ long history as superb hunting dogs, the Speagle will certainly have insatiable energy levels and a high prey drive.
Like with most hunting dogs, the Speagle will be very vocal even if they’re not hunting. It’s just their way of communicating with the pack. As such, extra training and patience is required in order to keep this in check.
These dogs thrive best when they’re the center of attention. They need human interaction and love to participate in all family activities. That said, they do well in large families willing to invest the time and energy into these dogs.
