Originally bred as hunting dogs, modern beagles are typically kept as family pets these days. And it’s easy to see why — they’re incredibly cute, they’re wonderfully good natured, and they are the perfect size for many owners. What’s not to love?
But despite the domestic lifestyle most modern beagles enjoy, they aren’t all cuteness and puppy kisses — they are still capable of holding down a job, as these super sniffers have one of the best senses of smell among all dogs.
This means that they are often tasked with using their noses to help humans.
For example, many hunters in Great Britain continue to use these canine accomplices while tracking down game. Beagle mix-breeds are also frequently employed by police K9 units and some work as search-and-rescue dogs.
But while beagles are clearly a beloved breed, some folks have decided to mix them with other designer dog breeds to produce unusual (and in some cases, even cuter) mixed-breed puppers.
We’ve sniffed out some of our favorites and listed them below so you can decide if one of these beagle mixed breeds is perfect for your family environment.
Check ’em out and let us know what you think!
1. The Cheagle (Beagle x Chihuahua)
These toy-sized pooch-pairings yield affectionate, spirited, sociable, and fun-loving canine companions with confidence that belies their tiny proportions (thanks in large part to their Chihuahua parents).
But despite these awesome traits, the Cheagle or Beagle Chi has a surprisingly high energy level, which means you’ll need to provide these little guys and gals with plenty of daily exercise. This will not only keep them healthier and happier, but it’ll help prevent them from developing problematic behaviors like jumping and nuisance barking.
Cheagles are best suited to active owners seeking a wet-nosed buddy.
2. The Bagel (Beagle x Basset Hound)
Look, this mixed-breed doggo is obviously cute, but we can’t stop thinking about how great his nose must be! By combining the incredible sense of smell beagles have with the similar olfactory awesomeness of the basset hound mix, you get a pooch who’s nothing short of an Olympic-caliber sniffer!
While they’re likely to be a little mischievous, these excellent family dogs are almost always friendly and love company, making them great companions for kids and other family pets. Now they can get into trouble together!
3. The Beaski or Busky (Beagle x Husky)
The adorable beauty pictured above is a medium-sized mix between a beagle and a husky, with the characteristic markings of both purebred parent breeds. She has the floppy ears and brown mask of a beagle, which complements the black baby blues inherited from her husky parent. You might even see a Beagle Husky Mix with the Husky parent’s bright blue eyes.
This little one — like most Beaskis — is a determined worker with a really high energy level. So, you’ll want to make sure any Beaski you add to your family gets plenty of time to run, jump, and play.
But fair warning: Cat owners may want to pick another mixed-breed dog, as huskies and husky mixes often have difficulty making friends with felines.
4. The Puggle (Beagle x Pug)
First of all, just take a moment to soak in this canine’s cuteness! I mean, come on! We don’t know if all Puggles are this adorable, but this one is certainly one of our favorite four-footers we’ve ever seen.
Created by mixing a pug with a beagle, Puggles tend to be sociable, outgoing, and loving, and most will get along well with any other pooches in your family. They’re pretty pint-sized too, as most will only grow about 12 to 14 inches tall.
As endearing as the Puggles are, however, they can be a bit strong willed – especially when you’re trying to train them. But as always, patience and positive reinforcement are key. Keep at it and you’ll soon be bragging with the best behaved beagle-pug mix in the neighborhood.
5. Coagle or Bocker (Beagle x Cocker Spaniel)
The combination of the sweet-natured and mild-mannered beagle and the sprightly and sporting cocker spaniel results in one fantastic four-footer!
The spaniel beagle makes a fantastic companion for older children, senior citizens, and singles looking for a sweet companion, the Coagle is a popular mixed breed pupper who is easy to love. A perfect breed for apartment life, these little beauties will love cuddling on the couch, though they still need daily exercise and plenty of mental stimulation.
6. Beaglemation (Beagle x Dalmatian)
Spot over here (see what we did there?) is a medium-sized dog, who has an extremely sensitive nature.
That makes these pooches quite lovable, but it means you’ll have to use gentle training techniques to get the best out of them. They don’t like being reprimanded and may become if scolded by mom or dad. They love getting lots of attention, they have really high energy levels (in fact, they make good running companions), and they have a playful nature, so they work well for active families with lots of kiddos.
7. Beabull (Beagle x Bulldog)
These sweet little pups often inherit the underbite and wrinkles of their bulldog parents and the floppy ears and the coat patterns of their beagle moms or dads.
The result? Utterly ridiculous levels of cuteness!
Playful, lovable, and chock full of energy, Beabulls are loyal friends, who make excellent pets for young kids. Just be prepared for a little bit of trouble when looking for harnesses and clothes if your pooch ends up with a bulldog-like build — their barrel-chested shape can make it tricky to find things that fit.
8. Poogle (Beagle x Poodle)
Look, we love beagles, but they aren’t the sharpest knives in the drawer — they get by thanks to their keen sense of smell, adventurous spirits, and too-cute-for-words looks. They don’t sit around doing much long division.
But if you cross a beagle with a poodle — one of the smartest dog breeds around — you can get the best of all worlds! Not to mention, the poodle’s hypoallergenic coat may also be a bonus for allergy sufferers.
However, just understand that incredible intelligence isn’t always ideal. In fact, super smart puppers often require lots of mental stimulation, lest they become mischievous. So, be sure that you keep your Poogle busy to limit the trouble he’ll get into.
On the other hand, these doggos will pick up basic obedience training and tricks very quickly, and they are more than happy to show off all their skills.
9. Beago (Beagle x Golden Retriever)
Created by crossing a beagle with one of the best and most popular breeds for first-time owners, Beagos are easy-going by nature makes them fantastic pets for homes with children. The golden retriever parent makes these excellent companions have a more cuddly nature than the purebred beagle.
They’re also smart pooches, who will quickly pick up basic obedience if properly motivated via positive techniques. Just be sure to watch your Beago beagle mix’s waistline, as their golden retriever parents can be susceptible to weight gain.
10. Lagle or Beagador (Beagle x Labrador Retriever)
What do you get when you cross a beagle with the world’s most popular dog breed? The Beagador — a friendly, enthusiastic and playful family pet with a sweet disposition. And because Labs can display any of three coat colors, you can get a Beagador in your choice of several shades.
The Labrador Beagle mix will spend all of his time following family members around, soliciting tasty treats, and begging for scritches, though you should be able to distract him by flinging a tennis ball whenever necessary! Whatever you do, just be sure to keep your Beagador busy — these little lovers will get into mischief if they’re not kept entertained.
11. Beagi (Beagle x Corgi)
The short and stocky Beagi (who’s likely to top out at around 14 inches tall) is quite the social animal, who gets along famously with other household pets. But they may become a bit over-protective or territorial at times, so be sure to socialize them well while they’re young. They may also spend all day corralling your kids and other pets, thanks to the corgi’s livestock-herding dog roots.
The Corgi Beagle mix is extremely loyal and sweet nature will ensure life-long bonds are formed with owners and caregivers.
12. Pomeagle (Beagle x Pomeranian)
Pomeagles are generally smallish dogs, who display astute intelligence and affection. They do tend to exhibit some attention deficits as their curiosity often gets the better of them, and owners need to be firm and patient when training to keep their constant interest.
Like other Pomeranian mixes, Pomeagles adapt extremely well to small living spaces like apartments, making them ideal dogs for older people, or folks who have limited space.
13. Beashund or Doxle (Beagle x Dachshund)
Before we talk about Doxies and what makes them so great, just stop and look at that face again. We promise it’ll make your day better!
The friendly disposition of Doxies will set your mind at ease if you are already a pet owner, as they get along famously with other animals. Part beagle, part dachshund, Doxies adore your undivided attention and will keep you entertained for hours or for however long you are willing to roll around on the floor with him.
These pupperinos may be a bit challenging to housebreak (something dachshunds are infamous for), but with time and patience, you should be able to teach him the dos and don’ts of poopin’ and peein’.
14. Teagle or Boglen (Beagle x Boston Terrier)
There’s no getting around it: Teagles are absolute cutie-pies! We’re particularly fond of those with some brindle markings in their coats (as displayed in the little gal pictured above), but they’re all adorable. Plus, Boston terrier mixes tend to be a silly sort, so you can expect endless antics with one of these furry pals around.
Teagles do tend to have quite a stubborn streak and require plenty of activity to work off their high energy levels, so be prepared to keep your new pooch busy if you select one of these mixed-breed dogs. Such loving and affectionate doggos are ideal household buddies for most situations, and they’re pretty tidy to boot!
15. Borkie (Beagle x Yorkshire Terrier)
Made by crossing a beagle with a Yorkshire Terrier, the Borkie (a name we love, by the way…) is a small sized pup, who’s ideal for single doggy owners and large families alike.
Borkie puppies are extremely intelligent, loyal, and loving of their nearest and dearest. These Yorkie mixes thrive on any attention you’re willing to heap upon them, and most are pretty sweet from the get-go.
Be warned though, Borkies love using their voices and have no qualms about yakking and yapping all day. You’ll need to leave them with plenty of entertainment options when you head to work each day, unless you want to come home to complaints from your neighbors.
16. Bea-Tzu (Beagle x Shih-Tzu)
Beautiful inside and out, the Bea-Tzu is beagle and shih-tzu mix who is an extremely warm, loving and compassionate friend who tends to inherit the best of both parent dogs. A pretty social pupper, these dogs love both human attention and pupper play-dates.
Exceedingly good-natured, these pups are great for a variety of homes and familial situations, though they may not work very well for homes with very young children. Older kiddos, however, will usually love these pupperinos. You’re sure to fall for the Shih Tzu Beagle cross.
17. Malteagle (Beagle x Maltese)
These powder-puffs of cuteness are ideal kiddie pooches as they cannot get in enough playtime! In fact, they’ll likely follow your kids (and you) around day and night!
Malteagles are, however, fairly difficult to train. They also need regular grooming, thanks to the long, beautiful, smooth coats their Maltese parents contribute to the cross breed. You can learn to perform this grooming yourself, but most owners will simply find it easier to leave such duties to the pros.
18. Raggle (Beagle x Rat Terrier)
A small and powerful bundle of dynamite, the beagle-rat-terrier mix is a loyal and loving addition to any active family home. He will definitely need proper training to control his energetic nature, but once that’s accomplished, they will become delightful, endearing, and entertaining pets, who captivate everyone they meet.
Just understand that rat terriers have quite a prey drive, so you’ll want to keep your new pooch on a leash whenever in squirrel or rabbit country!
19. Beaglier (Beagle x Cavalier King Charles Spaniel)
This adorable mutt takes the friendly cavalier King Charles spaniel and mixes it with the curious beagle. As a result, you get a sweet canine cross that loves spending time with family and friends.
Beagliers are total sweeties that prefer to be in homes where someone is usually around to keep them company. While they love to play, they also make excellent couch companions.
20. Beagle Shepherd (Beagle x German Shepherd)
If you’re looking for a loyal canine companion, the beagle German shepherd mix is a great choice. These active pups are wickedly smart and happy to learn just about any trick, so long as you have a treat or two to offer in exchange.
Just understand that these mixes are going to shed quite a bit, mostly due to their German shepherd parent. So, they’re not the best mixed-breed mutt for owners who like a tidy house.
Beagle Basics: How To Take Care of These Happy Hounds
Whenever you welcome a marvelous mutt into your life, there’s no guarantee that your canine companion will be an even representation of both pooch parents. With that in mind, it’s helpful to understand how each parent breed tends to act to that you can determine whether your canine cross is a good fit for your family.
Here’s what you need to know about the happy-go-lucky beagle:
- They are curious and kind canine companions. Beagles are excellent furry friends to just about anyone, including kids and other pets. Note that these pups have a strong prey drive, so early socialization training is essential, especially if you have other critters in the home. These dogs are affectionate but tend to be more curious and playful than cuddly.
- They are small to medium-sized dogs. Beagles usually weigh between 20 and 30 pounds and live up to 15 years. The most common health challenges faced by the breed include allergies, obesity, epilepsy, hypothyroidism, and cherry eye.
- They require moderate grooming. Beagles are moderate shedders and have a short, smooth coat that’s fairly simple to maintain. These furry friends should be brushed regularly and — because they have long, floppy ears that are susceptible to ear infections — pet parents should make routine ear cleanings a habit.
- They like to stay active. Beagles have an active nature and enjoy lots of playtime on a daily basis. They also like to follow their nose and are highly food motivated, so you’ll want to keep plenty of training treats around the house.
- They are vocal and sometimes independent thinkers. Beagles will let you know how you feel. These canine clowns are famous for their vocalizations and appreciate staying in on the action. Beagles can be strong-willed at times, so they need patient pet parents who are willing to invest in regular training.

What about the beapso? A cross between the beagle and a lhasa apso. I just spent 15 years with this fabulous breed but he crossed the rainbow bridge a week ago. I would love to find another of this mixed breed but am having great difficulties. If you or anyone can assist me in this regard, I will travel anywhere in North America to acquire one of these fabulous puppies.

I was Wondering if anyone knows or has a beagle poodle Female please let me know.

Loved these mixes, but I’m afraid I’m have a bias … for my rescued Reagle … Samantha Schnozalina Lady Langford the First who I found in Louisville, KY at a Petsmart adoption that I unknowingly stumbled into while coming in to buy kitty food for some outdoor strays in the neighborhood. My rescued Bull Terrier, Diva Ditto O’Doulie passed away 9 months before but this adoption was not planned. I did not know what she was — all I saw was a pair of sad and scared brown eyes staring at me out of a crate from accross the store. Eye contact was made — the rest is history. How anyone could have given up this sweet, one-year-old beauty is still beyond me, but I truly was fortunate that day. She is half Rottweiler and half Beagle, I found out via a DNA test a few years after she came home with me. Medium-sized, just the right size, happy, smart, playful and so loving and eager to please. Did I mention perfect in every way? She is has the best of both breeds … but as I say … I gues I have a bias. 🙂

Doe she look more like a Beagle or Rottweiler? We had that mix some years ago and she was the gentlest sweetest dog we ever owned. She looked like a Beagle you wouldn’t have known she had any Rottweiler in her.
