Species group: Mixed Breeds
Other name(s): Beagle Bull
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.
The first generation Beagle Bull is a cross between a pure Beagle and a pure APBT, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. While not a common mix, you may encounter it occasionally at a rescue.
Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, many Beagle Bulls do resemble the Beagle side of the family.
Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, some Beagle Bull owners have observed that their dogs are exceptionally loyal and protective, as well as highly energetic and desiring lots of play time. A poorly socialized dog could be anything from a destructive barker to a danger to the neighborhood. This mix should probably be reserved for experienced owners who can manage the dog with kindness and consistency no matter how unpredictable the dog's personality might turn out to be.
