Beabull Introduction

A Beabull is the mixture of two of the most popular dog breeds, the Beagle and the Bulldog. These delightful little dogs are lovable, curious, and loyal to their families. The breed mix boasts an old lineage that includes two of Europes’ oldest breeds. Beagles go back to 16th century England when they hunted deer, foxes, and rabbits. Bulldogs were originally used for bull-baiting in the 17th century.

The mixture of these two breeds has helped make Beabulls the excellent family companions that they are. These dogs have been bred primarily as family companions because of these positive traits, likely since the early 2000s. They love family members of all ages and do wonderfully with other pets.

3 Pros and Cons of Owning Beabulls

Pros Cons
An Adaptable Dog For All Families
Beabulls get along with all members of your family, human, and animal. They adapt well to multi-member and single-person households.
May Bark Or Howl A Lot
Beabulls might bark or howl a lot because of their Beagle ancestors, which tend to be loud as hounds typically are. You can expect a Beabull to consistently do a lot of barking when they hear something.
Playful Without Being Hyper
These dogs love running around the yard or playing a game of fetch. They are also calm enough to enjoy lounging on the couch at night.
Is Often Stubborn
These dogs may be very strong-willed. Training from an early age is recommended to ensure that your Beabull is well-behaved.
A Perfect Size For Different Home Settings
As a crossbreed, Beabulls can vary in size, but most are medium-sized dogs about 30 to 40 pounds. These dogs can do well in apartment settings, as well as single-family homes.
Sometimes Nippy During Play
Beabulls have a strong prey drive from both ancestors, with the Bulldog ancestor contributing a strong biting instinct. Be prepared for a lot of nipping and biting during play, especially with puppies.

Beabull Size and Weight

The Beabull is a medium-sized short hair dog. Males average 16 inches at the shoulder and females average 12 inches. Males can weigh as much as 40lbs when fully grown, while females average 30lbs fully grown. Puppies average 5lbs at eight weeks. These dogs will reach an adult size between 12 and 24 months of age.

Beabull Common Health Issues

Beabulls, as a hybrid, can have health issues resulting from either their Beagle or English Bulldog ancestors. Hip dysplasia is a common concern for these dogs, affecting their movement in older age and causing a lot of pain. Ear infections are common in this crossbreed because of their long, floppy ears. Hypothyroidism is a problem that many of these dogs can face. Digestive issues like bloat are also common due to the deep chest these dogs have. Most health issues are easy to catch with regular yearly checkups.

The health issues Beabulls are most likely to live with include:

Beabull Temperament

Beabulls have a reputation for loving people, sticking pretty close to their family members, and having a low-key temperament. These dogs are perfect for families with children because they are normally free from issues with aggression. When you have a Beabull, make sure you are willing to cover the price of toys that will help keep your dog stimulated because they are very energetic during play.

Even though this hybrid is energetic during play, they are still very easy to live with. These dogs may have a strong-willed streak because of their hunting background. Their hunting instincts are inherited from their Beagle and English Bulldog ancestors. They retain a strong urge to bite during play from their bulldog side, so you need to take care to discourage nipping early on.

How To Take Care of Beabull

New Beabull owners need to keep several important factors in mind when caring for this crossbreed, from how to deal with barking to their lifespan. Although every dog involves a commitment to provide care, a Beabull has a stronger need to be around people more than some breeds. This must be kept in mind.

The factors unique to this hybrid could include whether they are commonly available through rescue, price, lifespan, or if shedding is an issue. Keeping these issues in mind before you commit to getting one of these dogs can help prevent a disappointing outcome.

Food and Diet

Beabulls, from puppies all the way through adulthood, have special dietary needs because of their background. There are a few things that new owners need to consider when buying food:

Beabull puppy food: High-quality puppy food fed in smaller meals will help your puppy avoid digestive problems. You may choose either wet or dry, or a combination of the two depending on your puppy’s preferences. A high-protein food will help your puppy avoid putting on too much weight. Chicken, turkey or fish-based foods will help fill this need.

Beabull adult dog food: Adult Beabulls will also be well with a high-protein food, or have their food supplemented with lean meat. Feeding a diet higher in protein while minimizing fat and keeping carbohydrates at reasonable levels will help your dog avoid issues with obesity later in life and contribute to a longer lifespan.

Maintenance And Grooming

Beabulls will do most of their shedding during the spring and fall. Professional grooming is not likely to be necessary for this crossbreed, and a dog brush will help remove loose hair with a weekly brushing, except during shedding season when you may have to brush twice a week. Dogs might be susceptible to problems with their facial skin because of their wrinkles.

Beabull Training

Beabulls are easy to train like their parent breeds, and owners will enjoy the process. Positive reinforcement plays a leading role in the success of raining for these dogs.

Exercise

Regular exercise, such as playing fetch or going for a walk, will help keep Beabulls happy. Although these dogs can do well in apartments, a yard can provide more exercise opportunities. Daily walks are helpful, and time spent in the yard or at a dog park several times a week is also helpful.

Puppies

Regardless of whether you acquire your Beabull puppy from a rescue or a breeder, you need to make sure the puppy is at least eight weeks old. This age is also a good time to start housebreaking your puppy and discouraging behavior like nipping.

Getting your puppy used to as many new experiences as possible is essential for a well-adjusted dog. The more encounters your puppy has with new people and things, the less upsetting unfamiliar things will be for them.

Beabull And Children

Beabulls are a breed unlikely to have aggression issues, making them excellent choices for families with children. Kids living with any type of dog need to understand how to treat the dog respectfully.
