Yes, it is possible to cross a Beagle with a Poodle and get viable offspring. The resulting Beagle Poodle Mix is what is called a Poogle. The Poogle is an adorable and loving dog that carries the best traits of the parent breeds.
How Big Is A Poogle?
The size of a Poogle is largely dependent on the size of the parents. It’s good to keep in mind that both parent breeds come in multiple sizes.
There are three distinct sizes of Poodle – standard, miniature and toy. The Beagle, on the other hand, comes in 2 sizes – standard and pocket. This means that the size of the Beagle Poodle mix will vary greatly depending on the parents.
For instance, if you cross a toy Poodle and a pocket Beagle, the resulting Poogle will be a small sized pooch. However, if you cross a Standard Poodle and a standard Beagle, the resulting pup will be much bigger.
Most times, however, Beagle Poodle mixes are created by crossing the standard Beagle with the mini Poodle, resulting in a Poogle that weighs between 15 lbs to 25 lbs and measures about 11 to 15 inches tall.
The appearance of the Poogle falls between that of the Poodle and the Beagle, with droopy ears that are a tad smaller than those of the Beagle, an athletic build, and large, dark eyes.
Most Poogles will have a curly coat that closely resembles that of the Poodle. Poogles could either inherit the Beagle’s multicolored coat, or the Poodle’s solid coat.
