What’s the Price of Beabull Puppies?

Because the Beabull is a new breed that’s only been around for about 20 years, the puppies are somewhat rare. Due to their scarcity, people breeding Beabulls know they can charge top dollar for these puppies. If you’d like to buy a Beabull puppy, you should be prepared to pay anywhere from $700 to $1,500 for a pup.

Since we’re in the midst of a pandemic with many people staying home, the demand for puppies is high, which has pushed the cost of puppies upward and sometimes to ridiculous amounts. So, what does that mean? It means you shouldn’t be surprised to see some greedy Beabull breeders asking well over $1500 for their puppies.

3 Little-Known Facts About Beabulls

  • The Beabull is a Designer Dog

The Beabull is one part English Bulldog, one part Beagle, and two parts adorable. This mixed breed with the charming personality is considered a designer dog. What that means is simply that the Beabull is a cross between two purebred dogs. Many people think of tiny dogs as designer dogs like Chiweenies or Chorkies but the Beabull belongs in this classification too!

  • Their Appearance Can Vary Considerably

Because Beabulls are mixed breed dogs, you’ll never be sure of what you’ll get when you cross an English Bulldog with a Beagle. Some Beabull puppies in a litter may look more like a Beagle while others will look just like their English Bulldog relatives. This is the case with all mixed breeds as puppies born within seconds of each other can look completely different from one another.

  • They Can Be Challenging to Train

There’s no denying that a Beabull is charming with its big eyes and floppy ears but this adorable dog can be a challenge to train. It’s not that the Beabull is dumb. This is an intelligent dog that knows how to follow instructions. However, sometimes this dog would simply rather be doing something else than training. If you get a Beabull, be patient during your training sessions and use lots of positive reinforcement.

Temperament & Intelligence of the Beabull

The Beabull is friendly, even-tempered, and intelligent. These dogs are known to have a stubborn streak that comes from the English Bulldog side. This dog is generally calm and very loyal but can be obstinate when training or learning something new. It takes patience and perseverance to train a Beabull but this dog loves to eat so it responds well to food reinforcement.

The Beabull is friendly towards everyone he meets, including children. This is a dog that will cherish his family and enjoy following them around all day, followed by snuggling up beside them in the evening. These dogs love being shown attention and affection. While not known to be a great watchdog, a Beabull is a wonderful companion dog that wouldn’t hesitate to defend his family if he had to.

Are These Dogs Good for Families?

Because Beabulls are friendly, they make wonderful family dogs. They have a lot of patience for the antics of children and love running and playing with youngsters. While this dog may be a bit challenging to train, it can be done with patience and persistence. When you allow a Beabull to join your family, you’ll have a loyal and loving friend who will love hanging out with everyone in the clan.

Does This Breed Get Along with Other Pets?

To make things go smoothly when introducing your Beabull to another pet, be patient and give your pets time to get used to one another. Keep a close eye on the situation at first then allow them to have some time unsupervised. Before you know it, your Beabull and other pet will be the best of buds!

Things to Know When Owning a Beabull:

Bringing a Beabull into your life is a big responsibility you should never take lightly. Your Beabull will be depending on you to provide him with a wonderful life. That’s why you should know what your dog needs to live a happy and healthy life.

  • Food & Diet Requirements

The ideal Beabull diet should be formulated for a medium-sized breed with medium energy. This dog tends to eat rapidly and over-eat. That’s why it’s important to monitor what your Beabull is eating. To ensure that your Beabull doesn’t pack on the pounds, stick to a regular feeding schedule and only feed your pooch a good quality dog food. It’s fine to give your Beabull treats now and then, but don’t overdo it.

  • Exercise

The Beabull is not an overly active dog, but it does need regular exercise. This dog should be allowed to take at least two long walks a day. If possible, visit a dog park so you Beabull can run free with other dogs. A happy and healthy Beabull is one that gets plenty of regular exercise. While this dog won’t want to run a marathon with you, he will be more than willing to join you for a nice long hike in the woods or a stroll through the city.

Beabulls love to play fetch and they adore kids. If you have kids, encourage them to include your Beabull in their outdoor activities. These fun-loving dogs make wonderful playmates and they’re game for just about any activity you can dream up.

  • Training

As stated earlier, Beabulls have a stubborn side which makes this breed challenging to train. If you can’t get your Bebull interested in training, sign up for a dog training course the two of you can attend. The Beabull is a dog that wants to please its owner so be patient and come up with some fun training ideas that seem more like play.

  • Grooming

If dog grooming isn’t your thing, you’ll be pleased to know that the Beabull is an easy dog to groom. These short-haired dogs do shed quite a bit, and especially during the springtime. That’s why you should get into the habit of brushing your Beabull at least every other day. Use a firm-bristled brush and go over every part of your dog’s body to smooth the coat and keep it looking nice.

You should only bathe your Beabull when he’s dirty as too much bathing can dry out the skin. Take the time once a month or so to clean those long floppy ears with a warm washcloth to remove any accumulated dirt and debris. By regularly cleaning your dog’s ears, he’ll be less prone to developing ear infections.

  • Health and Conditions

Beabulls are generally strong and healthy dogs. However, they are susceptible to some health problems you should be aware of.

Serious Conditions:
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Intervertebral Disk Disease
  • Patellar Luxation
Minor Conditions:
  • Obesity
  • Digestive Issues
  • Ear infections
  • Cataracts

Male vs Female

If you can’t decide if you should get a male or female Beabull, here are some things to consider. Female Beabulls tend to be smaller than their male counterparts and are more likely to want you to pamper them. The males like attention too but tend to know when enough is enough. Once you’re done petting and making over a male Beabull, he’d likely be more than happy to spend time on his own.
