Beagles are notorious for their love of other pets and children, as they have happy-go-lucky attitudes and love attention. But they can be destructive if they don’t get enough attention and tend to howl when lonely. Additionally, beagles rank high on the Consumer’s Guide for excessive barking and how challenging they are to train.

This adorable breed has a lot of energy and curious nature, which is typical for a hound dog. Unfortunately, their adventurous spirit generally causes them to roam. Therefore, owners must ensure they have secured their properties and keep them on a leash when walking. While beagles make excellent family dogs, they will not guard your home. However, they will bark if they sense a stranger is near but welcome them with open arms.

Types of Beagle Mixes

While the beagle is already incredibly cute, there are a few beagle mixes that are even more adorable! Here are four of the most popular hybrids:

Puggle ( Beagle and Pug Mix)

The puggle has been around since the 80s, and its popularity has skyrocketed since then. This beagle mix combines the small frame and squished face of the pug with the high energy and athleticism of the beagle. The puggle is categorized as a toy breed at just 10 to 15 inches tall and weighing only 14 to 30 pounds. They are the perfect pet to keep in an apartment. However, these hybrids are not lap dogs.

Bagel (Beagle and Basset Hound Mix)

A bagel is a result of crossing a beagle with a basset hound. These adorable hybrids usually have long ears, droopy eyes, and a square head, giving them expressive faces that are hard to say no to. Additionally, bagels have short fur, making them easy to maintain. But don’t be misled by their name; they are muscular and stocky. In fact, they fall into the large breed category as they can weigh up to 60 pounds.

Bocker (Beagle and Cocker Spaniel Mix)

Thanks to the bocker’s easy-going, relaxed, and sweet personality, they are a great companion for a family with children. Additionally, their alert nature makes them excellent watchdogs who will always notify you when a stranger is near. However, as a hybrid, it’s hard to say which parent it will take after, but with parents like the beagle and cocker spaniel, a cheerful demeanor is always guaranteed.

Beabull (Beagle and Bulldog Mix)

The beabull generally inherits the bulldog’s stocky torso, wide hips, underbite, wrinkles, and the beagle’s brown eyes and floppy ears. Their charming personality and affectionate nature make them great companions for other dogs and even cats.

The Best Dog Food for a Beagle Mix

These beagle mixes are easy to please when it comes to food. However, this does not mean you can feed them anything. Opting for high-quality dog food, whether wet or dry, is always the way to go. If you are unsure what to buy, check the ingredient list, and if meat is not the first ingredient, it is not a good dog food. Reagles should eat 2.5 cups of kibble per day.

In addition to their daily meals, you can win them over with treats. However, this should only be given in moderation or when training, which will enhance their obedience and help build a bond. The best treats to buy your reagle are options made with turkey or chicken. However, salmon or something fishy will do the trick if you want to mix things up. But don’t go overboard, as too much protein can cause indigestion and other issues.

Beagle Mix Size and Weight

Reagles are large-sized dogs weighing between 50 and 85 pounds and measuring between 15 and 27 inches tall.

Beagle Mix Common Health Issues

This beagle mix can inherit either parent’s genetic health concerns, but they are generally plagued by the beagle’s afflictions. However, they are typically healthy hybrids, but you should always be on the lookout for minor issues. For example, the reagle is prone to epilepsy. Unfortunately, depression can result from these episodes due to how stressful they are. But luckily, depression can be manageable with Valium prescribed by a vet.

Sadly, reagles are prone to various infections and urinary tract diseases—for example, bladder cancer. Therefore, you should always take your beagle mix for regular veterinary check-ups and screen for any sort of cancer. Additionally, reagles are susceptible to eye infections due to their heavy eyelids and large eyes. This allows debris and dirt to accumulate around their eyes, leading to discomfort and infection. So, cleaning your reagle’s eyes regularly is crucial. Speak to your local vet about how to clean their eyes and what products are safe to use at home.

Hip dysplasia is another condition that plagues this beagle mix. Unfortunately, their joints are easy to dislocate, which causes pain and discomfort. Sadly, there is no cure, but there are surgeries that help and rehabilitation programs that can manage this disease.

Lastly, the reagle’s floppy ears are prone to infection, meaning their ears need regular flushes and cleanings.

Life Expectancy

The reagles life expectancy is surprising due to its large size. But these tenacious pooches can live between 15 to 16 years with the proper care.

Beagle Mix Temperament

Reagles are sweet, loving, easily trainable, and generally, get along with people and other pets if socialized from young. They don’t usually inherit the antisocial behaviors associated with Rottweilers and, instead, adopt the beagles’ eager-to-please demeanor.

Reagles are the best students as they love to learn new tricks, so training them is a breeze. Their loyal and gentle nature means they are dedicated to their owners and will protect them with their lives. On the other hand, reagles are affectionate, boisterous, and clumsy, and sometimes they can underestimate their strength. While this beagle mix is not generally aggressive, they will need supervision around younger children or small animals, as their play can turn malicious if provoked.

If reagles are not socialized properly from a young age, they can be distrusting of strangers or new friends. But, if they sense that their owners are comfortable around these “intruders,” they will quickly warm up to them too. Reagles love to be surrounded by their loved ones, so they thrive as indoor dogs. Therefore, if your canines are not allowed inside, this is not the hybrid for you.

Since beagles are notorious for their incredible smelling capabilities, the regale will also have a great sense of smell. Unfortunately, this causes their nose to lead them, which makes them want to roam and investigate. While this makes them the perfect candidates as service dogs, owners must ensure their properties are secure and their reagle is always on a leash.

How to Take Care of a Beagle Mix

Caring for the reagle is pretty straightforward, thanks to their short coats and ability to learn new commands quite easily. However, they do require some attention, like:

Grooming

As reagles have short coats, they aren’t heavy shedders. By brushing them two to three times a week, you control the shedding while keeping your pup’s coat healthy. These dogs don’t need regular baths, either. They only need baths when they are really dirty, about every three months. However, their oral health is essential and often overlooked by owners. They need their teeth brushed at least three times a week with dog-friendly toothpaste.

Additionally, they need their nails trimmed once every three months or once they start to touch the ground. Lastly, their eyes and ears need monitoring since this breed is susceptible to eye and ear infections. Therefore, checking both are clean regularly will help your companion stay healthy.

Training

This beagle mix loves to please its owners,  so training them is relatively easy. They respond best to reward-based training with lots of praise and treats. These will aid their eagerness to follow instructions and excitement about the rewards they will receive when they get it right. As reagles will eat just about anything, finding a treat they will like will be easy. But beware of foods with produced meats, soy, or corn. Instead, buy your canine companion healthy treats that won’t cause significant weight gain.

Exercise

The reagle will enjoy walking or jogging daily as it is a moderately active dog. However, their beagle side might cause them to roam, so always ensure they are on a secure leash. Additionally, they enjoy plenty of outdoor time, so they do not make the best apartment dogs. Furthermore, owners with fenced yards need to ensure their properties are appropriately secured, as the reagle is quite an escape artist.

Puppies

Female reagles can have between one to 10 puppies, but they average two to four pups per litter. If you are interested in adopting one of these unique dogs, use a reputable breeder to avoid scams and genetic health defects. It’s best to first approach registered Rottweiler or beagle breeders, but if that doesn’t have the desired result, try looking at shelters. Visit your local beagle or Rottweiler rescue, and ask them to contact you if they find one.

Beagle Mix and Children

This beagle mix usually makes an excellent family pet. Reagles are loyal and loving and enjoy spending time with their loved ones. When socialized from a young age, these hybrids are great with children. However, they can become very protective of the kids, which could be good or bad. That’s why the reagle should constantly be monitored when around young children.

Beagle Mix Cost

As the reagle’s parent breeds are readily available, the cost of one of these hybrids is not as high as others designer breeds. Their price varies between $800 and $1,200 depending on the breeder, location, and pedigree.

Famous Reagle

There is a famous celebrity that owns a reagle, and her name is Miley Cyrus. In 2012 the Wrecking Ball singer found a reagle pup abandoned outside Walmart and decided to adopt it.
