Species group: Mixed Breeds
Other name(s): Sharpeagle, Sharp Eagle, Shar Pei Beagle
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 Sharp Eagle is a cross between a pure Beagle and a pure Chinese Shar Pei, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix.
Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the Sharp Eagle often looks like a concerned hound with a wrinkled face.
Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, some owners say their Sharp Eagle mix is the best of both breeds-- with fewer health and skin problems compared to the purebred Shar Pei and the loving personality of the Beagle.
