Do you love Poodle hybrids?
If so, you’ve come to the right place, and today we’re honoring the gorgeous Poogle.
Yes, the Poogle. The name sounds quite unique, doesn’t it?
Well, this is because the Poogle comes from the miniature or toy Poodle and the Beagle.
Before I give you a full insight into the Poodle, let’s quickly skim over their parent’s history.
First of all, their poodle parent came from Germany and was first bred to be a water dog. Then it became a popular dog in France, and now it’s one of the world’s most highly intelligent and popular breeds.
Whereas the Beagle came from Great Britain and was first believed to have come into existence in the 1980s. Its purpose was to serve as a hunting hound and would commonly hunt hare.
Now given their hunting instinct and intelligent personality, I bet the cogs are already turning in your brain about what a Poogle is like! To know more about this crossbreed, read on.
What Will I Learn? 👇
What does a beagle poodle mix look like?
A Poogle is fortunate to inherit many stunning characteristics from both its Poodle and Beagle parent. This is a small to medium-sized crossbreed and can grow between 6-16 inches, or if you measure in cm, that’s 15cm-40cm. Plus they can weigh between 11-25Ibs / 4.9kg-11.3kg. Due to their parents hunting nature, this crossbreed has an athletic structure and is sturdy. Their small size also makes them the perfect breed for people living in an urban space.
However do note, that its Beagle parent can come in two sizes as well as its Poodle parent. Therefore to give you a better idea of what size a Poogle pup can grow up to, I recommend visiting a breeder and meeting the Poogles parents first.
Another doodles similar in size and temperament are the Doxiepoo and the Poochon.
This crossbreed does not always look the same, depending on the genetics they inherit, and therefore comes in a range of different coat colors. You can expect a Poogle to have either a black, grey, brown, white, tan, red, or silver coat. Likewise, it has large round dark brown eyes and can either have a black or brown nose. Plus has ears slightly longer than its Poodle parent but not as long as its Beagle one.
Do Poogles shed?
At PoodleHQ, we know one deciding factor of bringing any dog into a home can be its shedding qualities. If you’re someone who suffers from a lot of allergies and does not want to suffer regularly from canine dander, then you’ll be in luck with a Poogle.
This breed is classed as hypoallergenic and sheds less frequently than some breeds.
Part of the reason is that the Poogle has a coat that consists of short-medium length hair and can either be dense like its Beagle parent or curly like its Poodle parent. Most of the time, if they take after their Poodle parent, they have wavy hair around their nose, ears, and forehead. However, if they inherit a coat similar to their Beagle parent, they may be prone to shedding slightly more.
Poogle grooming requirements
Now I’ve mentioned their coat; I feel it’s essential as a potential Poogle owner that you should know about the grooming requirements for this crossbreed.
Generally, the Poogle should be brushed a few times a week to keep its curly coat from getting matted. If they have a short coat like its Beagle parent, then being brushed once a week is acceptable. When it comes to bathing, they should be bathed every 2-3 months using proper dog shampoo, but one that’s natural, as both its parents suffer from sensitive skin.
Similarly, you should brush your teeth every day to reduce the risk of gum disease and trim the hair around its ears regularly. The reason for this is because dirt and debris can easily go inside, putting your dog at greater risk of getting an ear infection.
If you’re looking for an aggressive guard dog, then the Poogle is the complete opposite to that. This lovely canine is renowned for having an ear to ear beaming smile. Its friendly nature will allow it to easily adapt to any home and get on well with any family member, big or small. This means they’re a perfect dog to own if you have children in your home!
Plus, due to their parent’s playful and fun-loving nature, the Poogle will always be looking for ways to make you smile or play with them. The Poogle by no means is a docile breed; it has an energetic nature and often looks for a playmate. Therefore, as a dog owner, you have to be active and play with them; otherwise, they could easily get bored and engage in self-destructive chewing on your furniture.
I bet the last thing you want is your new couch torn to shreds.
Expect loyalty with this breed and constant demands for attention. But do not leave them on their own for a long time as they can get bored and anxious easily. This crossbreed is commonly given the name a “velcro dog” as they stick to you like velcro.
Therefore if you’re looking for a dog to cuddle up with in front of the tv, after a long day of work, then you can do so with a Poogle. They love to be active but equally love to be lazy, and you’ll find they often provide a mixture of the two.
The Poogles charming nature allows it to get on very well with strangers. If you’re the type of person to have frequent visitors round to your house, then this could be a match made in heaven. But be warned, due to its Beagle inheritance, it may bark like its parent to inform you someones at the door.
While it does inherit a great amount of intelligence from its Poodle parent, this breed can also be stubborn. So, if you’re looking for a fully obedient dog, then this canine may not be for you.
Just like all dog breeds, the Poogle requires daily exercise and, on average, should have around 1 hour of walking a day. If the Poogle inherits a personality more like its Beagle parent, be prepared; they may try to convince you that they don’t need the exercise! However, don’t fall victim to its charming personality traits; they require daily exercise in order to stay healthy.
Due to its intelligent nature, you may wish to shake its exercise routine up and offer your canine more than a mundane walk. For example, you could play flyball, fetch, take it jogging, or even to a dog park to meet other canines in the area.
You may wish to take the Poogle in water, and if it is like its Poodle parent, then it will be a fantastic experience. On the contrary, if the Poogle has qualities like a Beagle, such as having a long body and short legs, then it may not swim that well. Therefore I recommend purchasing a life jacket for your canine to allow them to float in case they do drift underneath the sea.
Whether you live in a big or small house, make sure there’s a yard around. The Poogle likes to play and likes to exhaust their energy. If you or your neighbor owns a cat, then be careful; this crossbreed has a hunting instinct and will go for the cat.
Poogle health problems
On average, a Poogle, if looked after well, can live up to 10-16 years. But, just like all breeds, they can be prone to health problems. The common health problems you can expect a Poogle to have are:
- Hip Dysplasia: This can often be hereditary for Poogle as both the Beagle and Poodle have a high risk of having hip dysplasia. The condition prevents its hip joint from aligning properly, causing mobility issues and often at worse paralysis.
- Patellar luxation: This is when their kneecap can become easily dislocated, causing pain and mobility difficulties.
- Mitral Valve Disease: A leaking mitral valve in their heart causing a murmur and fatigue, fainting, and often collapse.
How much does a Beagle poodle mix puppy cost?
Just like its size, appearance, and personality, the cost can influence whether you bring a Poogle into your life or not. On average, a Poogle puppy starting price can begin at $700 and go up from there. This tends to be a rarer Poodle crossbreed, and prices tend to be a bit more expensive.
However, the price can also vary based on its inheritance, your location, and the breeder’s reputation.
I cannot stress enough how important it is to work with a well-known breeder to make sure you’re getting a top-notch Google. The last thing you will want is to buy one from a puppy mill, so go visit the breeder, see the Poogle puppy in person, and meet its parents.
Overall, the Poogle is a charming breed and the perfect mix of a high-energy and lethargic animal. It can typically switch between being playful to cuddling up to you on the couch over tv. This dog is not aggressive but can have hunting instincts, so be careful if you have cats around! Finally, they’re one of the rarer Poodle crossbreeds, so they can be a bit costlier to own, but I recommend consulting the advice of an expert breeder.
