Beagles are an old favorite of dog owners thanks to their cute looks and playful personalities. They’re known for their jovial temperament and gentleness with children. However, Beagles aren’t the dog for everyone. They’re active and can be quite noisy, especially if not provided with stimulation and activity. This is where Beagle mixes come into the picture!
Mixed breeds are never a guarantee, so you never know what you’ll get with a Beagle mix, but many people find that Beagle mixes tend to retain the positive personality traits of Beagles, while taking on some of the positive traits of the other half of their DNA. Let’s talk about the adorable Beagle mixes you may come across!
The 30 Beagle Mixed Breeds
1. Puggle (Pug & Beagle Mix)
The most popular beagle mix is this fun mixture of a Beagle and Pug. These dogs usually retain the active nature of Beagles, while taking on some of the cute Pug features, like a shortened snout and more stout body. These dogs are prone to obesity and should be kept active.
2. Bagel (Basset Hound & Beagle Mix)
This combination of a Beagle and a Bassett Hound creates a cute, laid-back dog. Since both breeds are hunting dogs, these dogs may be more active than a Basset Hound typically is. They may take on the short legs and wrinkly skin of the Bassett Hound, while keeping that Beagle energy.
3. Bocker (Cocker Spaniel & Beagle Mix)
Also sometimes called the Spocker, this is a Beagle and Cocker Spaniel mix. These dogs will usually have cute, floppy ears, thanks to both parents. They often take on the longer, curly coat of the Cocker Spaniel, but have the coloration of a Beagle. Since Beagles and Cocker Spaniels are usually close to the same size, Bockers typically stay around the same size as well.
4. Cheagle (Beagle & Chihuahua Mix)
The half Chihuahua, half Beagle mixture can create a small dog with Velcro tendencies. Cheagles are usually smaller than a Beagle and take on the clingy personality of a Chihuahua. They often grow particularly attached to one or two people.
5. Beabull (Beagle & Bulldog Mix)
The Beabull is a combination of a Bulldog and Beagle. They usually have the stout appearance of a Bulldog with the short snout and wrinkly face. They often take on the longer ears of the Beagle, though, and are often as active as a full-blood Beagle.
This is a combination of a Beagle and Poodle, usually taking on the curly Poodle coat. These dogs tend to be highly intelligent and easy to train, although they may be stubborn. Poogles often make a good addition to homes with children.
Two of the most popular dog breeds in America, the Labrador Retriever and Beagle, come together to create the Beagador. These dogs can be good alert dogs, although they may be friendly with intruders, making them poor security. They tend to be playful, affectionate, and intelligent.
Beagles and Golden Retrievers are an unusual mixture, but the Beago is a laid-back kind of dog. These dogs often take on the color of Goldens and may also have a longer coat than a Beagle. They are prone to obesity, but are high energy dogs, so it shouldn’t be difficult to keep a Beago active.
The Beagle and Corgi cross breed, the Beagi, is a cute, short-legged dog that often takes on a very Corgi-like appearance but may have a distinctly hound-like face. They are often great pets but may not be a good option in homes with small children. They are loyal dogs, though.
These long dogs are a combo of Dachshunds and Beagles. They are often active and friendly dogs, which they get from both breeds. Doxles often have long bodies like a Dachshund, though, making them prone to back injuries. It’s important to keep these dogs at a healthy weight.
Also called the Teagle, this is a combination of a Beagle and a Boston Terrier. They frequently take on the protective, jealous nature of Boston Terriers. They can be quite stubborn and may be difficult to train. However, they make excellent companions, especially in homes with singles or couples and no other pets.
The Borkie is a mixture of a Beagle and a Yorkshire Terrier. They often have the cute, shaggy coat of the Yorkie. Both breeds tend to be friendly, active, and playful, which are traits taken on by most Borkies. They are great family pets and are usually larger than Yorkies, which makes them able to participate in more activities without tiring out.
The Maltese and Beagle are an odd combination for sure. However, Malteagles are very cute. They usually take on the fine, fluffy coat that Maltese are known for. They can be difficult to train and are very stubborn, but these dogs are active and playful, making them great companions for children.
The French Bulldog has grown in popularity over the last few years, which has led to the creation of the French Bulldog and Beagle mix, the Frengle. These stubborn pups tend to be friendly and charming, demanding all the attention in the room. They often have shorter snouts like French Bulldogs, so they should be treated like other brachycephalic breeds in relation to heat and exercise.
The Rat Terrier and Beagle mix to create a high energy, active dog that can be quite a handful to an inexperienced owner. They are loyal, though, and make great little watchdogs. Raggles are smart but stubborn, making them difficult to train.
Another unusual combination, the Pomeagle is a Pomeranian and Beagle mix. They tend to be smaller than Beagles and are often pleasant dogs that take an interest in their surroundings. Pomeagles may be a better option for an apartment dog than a Beagle would be, due to their lower energy level.
Boxers and Beagles come together to create the Boggle. They seem to never run out of energy and tend to be comedians. Boggles may be slightly more laid-back than Boxers but tend to be larger than Beagles.
Beagles and Huskies mix to create the Beaskie. Like many Husky mixes, they often have a thick coat and other recognizable Husky features, like blue eyes and a long, pointed nose. Huskies and Beagles both have a tendency to be loud dogs, so Beaskies are not a good option for anyone looking for a quiet apartment dog. They are also not a great option for homes with small children.
19. Beagle Shepherd
Beagle Shepherds are a mixture of Beagles and German Shepherds. These dogs should begin training and socialization while still very young to prevent behavioral problems, especially toward friendly strangers. They tend to be intense dogs and are often larger than Beagles. This mixture is not for an inexperienced dog owner.
Beagles and Rottweilers are an unusual combination, but the Reagle is a loyal, steadfast guard dog. They require early training and socialization, and they may remain distrustful of strangers throughout their life. Both breeds tend to be protective of their family, so Reagles can be good for experienced dog owners with older children.
21. Beagle Point
If you’re looking for an intense hunting dog, the Beagle Point may be the right dog for you. This combo of Beagles and Pointers often leads to a dog that is trainable, focused, and ready to run for hours. Without proper exercise, these dogs may become destructive.
22. Australian Beagle
Australian Shepherds and Beagles are both people-oriented, active dogs, so the Australian Beagle often is too. They are intelligent, fast-learners, and highly trainable. While Australian Beagles can be great family dogs, they would love having a job to do or a sport to participate in.
If you’re looking for a strong, confident, loyal dog, the Beaglebull may be a good option for you. The Beaglebull is a mix of the American Pitbull Terrier and a Beagle, creating a dog with the owner-oriented personality of both breeds. These dogs may have a high prey drive, making them a poor choice for homes with cats and other small animals.
If you’re looking for a cute, sweet dog, few dogs beat the Beaglier. This mix of a Beagle and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel often has the long, wispy hair on the end of the tail and feet like a Cavalier. They tend to be lower energy than Beagles but do still appreciate some playtime and walks.
25. English Speagle
Another great hunting dog, the English Speagle is a combination of a Beagle and English Springer Spaniel. These dogs are similar in personality to Speagles but tend to be higher energy. These dogs are happy to spend the day hunting or playing.
This Shih Tzu and Beagle mix often takes on the short legs, body type, and coat of the Shih Tzu, but has a noticeably Beagle-like face. They may have a shorter snout than a Beagle, but usually they are not brachycephalic. These dogs are people-oriented and may become particularly attached to one or two people. They are playful but also enjoy a relaxing afternoon on the couch.
27. Bea Griffon
This is a combination you don’t see often, but the Bea Griffon is a mix of the Beagle and Brussels Griffon. These spirited dogs are fun and affectionate. They often look like Beagles with shortened snouts. They are lower energy than most Beagles and are happy to spend time with their owner.
Another mixed breed that is not for inexperienced dog owners, the Beaglematian is a mixture of a Beagle and Dalmatian. They often take on the sensitive nature of the Dalmatian and can become distrusting of people with improper training and handling. They should be trained and socialized young and do best with lots of praise and positive reinforcement.
The Beagleman is a mixture of a Doberman and a Beagle. This dog tends to be loyal and affectionate but may be distrusting of strangers. They are smart and trainable dogs, and often love having a job to do. They are sensitive and are not a good dog for inexperienced dog owners.
This mix of Beagle and Lhasa Apso is usually similar in appearance to a Beagle with shorter legs. They sometimes take on the longer coat of the Lhasa Apso. They are curious, friendly, and loyal dogs that tend to stay smaller than Beagles. They usually have an energy level that requires daily play or activity, but not much.
Beagle mixes can be a lot of fun and tend to be very cute dogs. Many of them are not for just anyone, though! Carefully choose your dog before bringing it home. Oftentimes, shelters and rescues will help you choose a dog that suits your personality and home. This will help prevent you from ending up with a dog that is difficult for your level of dog handling.
