*Many people with allergies prefer a Poodle mix dog as their fur is more hypoallergenic than most dogs (a characteristic inherited from the Poodle).
A Poogle (also known as Beaglepoo, Beapoo & Beagapoo) is ½ Beagle and ½ Poodle. It is difficult to tell a Poogle when you see one. They display many changes in their appearance from puppyhood to adulthood, many times with each looking far different from the next which makes their appearance quite unpredictable. Their coats can come in a variety of colors, textures, and lengths. Most are very low shedding with grooming being quite easy if they take after the Beagle, or requiring a bit more care if they take after the Poodle. These adorable dogs are known to get along very well with children and other animals, are comfortable in most all settings and make a very good family pet. They have a playful nature, are friendly and outgoing, love exercise, and are very lovable and loyal to their owners. The Beagle is known for their baying bark, and some Poogles may exhibit this bark as well, however, they do not have a reputation as being problem barkers. Their average life expectancy is 10 – 13 years.
When considering the nature of the Poogle, you must consider the characteristics of both the Beagle and the Poodle separately in order to determine the characteristics the Poogle may exhibit.
The Beagle is a very popular breed of dog and has a temperament that can be described as even and gentle. This cute and floppy-eared breed is a popular family dog since they get along very well with children and other dogs. Although spunky and active, they also are not overly hyper and only require a moderate amount of exercise. They are well known for their amazingly keen sense of smell. But, once they catch a scent, good luck getting their attention, because they become very one-track minded and can be very difficult to pull away. This can pose issues when training as they get very distracted by all of the smells around them. However, they are, no doubt, an intelligent breed.
The Poodle comes in three different sizes, toy (10” and under, 6-9 1bs.), miniature (10-15”, 15-17 1bs.), and standard (over 15”, 45-70 1bs.). The Poodle has been cited as being the 2nd most intelligent breed of dog. Their exceptional intelligence, paired with the fact that they are generally very eager to please, empowers them to excel in obedience training. They learn quickly and will delight in showing off their new tricks. Poodles are generally very easy to housebreak. They are loyal and devoted companions, extremely people-oriented, and crave lots of love and attention. They are typically calm, good natured, with a sweet temperament, and the ability to bond with all members of their human family. The standard poodle, in particular, does extremely well in families with young children, while the toy and miniatures fair better with older children. Poodles do not do well in households where they will be left alone for long periods of time, left outside, or bound to one room of the house. Poodles have an extremely low-shedding, dense coat which is either curly or corded and should be groomed every 6 – 8 weeks to prevent mats and tangles. If you should so decide, their coat can also be kept short for low-maintenance. Poodles come in a variety of colors such as silver, cream, gray, blue, black, white, apricot, red, caf-au-lait, brown, and parti-colored. The Poodle is oftentimes referred to as the hypo-allergenic dog. But, while there truly is no such thing as a completely hypo-allergenic dog, they are unquestionably more compatible with allergic persons than other breeds. Being classified as highly energetic, the poodle, like most dogs, will appreciate daily exercise, such as a walk, play session, or a run at the dog park.

I adopted a beaglepoo or “poogle” almost four months ago. He is now almost 8 months old. His mother is the beagle and father the poodle. He is black with gray and white socks. He is adorably handsome and am happy to have him in my life. I stumbled on this page during my search for grooming tips on beaglepoos (specifically, haircuts). As I read the comments, I thought my few months experience with one might help those coming here in the interest of adopting one. I don’t don’t know if one breed being the mother and the other the father matters, but just in case, that is why I clarified earlier. Mine (Finn) is a great dog. Some things I chalk down to “puppy behavior”. However the thing that bothers me is his shedding. It is now June and getting quite warm. I am sweeping every other day and finding hair everywhere. It may just be that I have hardwood floors and it is more noticeable, but today I was wiping dog hair off the stove. So I made an appointment for his first haircut tomorrow but have no idea what is the typical “cut” for this breed. I didn’t find much information, so I guess I will do it the way I think it will look best with the hope of minimizing the shedding. He is a very smart dog. We started learning verbal commands with sign language and he picks up really quickly. The beagle in him makes him want to smell EVERYTHING. Sometimes our walks take two or three times as long because he wants to smell the flowers, bushes, trees, whatever it is at the moment. Personally, I find that endearing. Another thing is that he constantly wants to play, which is good. TTYL =)

I’ve owned a beapoo/poogle for 8 years and he is wonderful. He is loyal and extremely smart. If his hair is cut every couple months I have no problem with hair. We bring him to the groomer and have him shaved. He likes to be by my side all the time. He is great with kids and is under 20lbs.

I saw my boogle at a pet store about two years ago. She was dirty and her hair was matted. No one wanted her and she was on sale for $100. There was two. The other was her sister and the biggest regret I have is not getting BOTH of them. I love my poogle. She is the greatest dog ever. She is always happy and is perfect size. Not to small but not huge. She is a great bird hunting dog and gets along with my other dog very well. Grooming is super easy even though she does get ticks easily because her coat is wiry and thick. I wish I could add more pictures because I have soo many.

Our dog, Cookie, is the best dog ever. After puppy hunting for months to find our perfect match, we stumbled across an ad in a local paper for poodle beagle mix puppies. That suited us perfectly as I wanted a poodle, and my daughter wanted a beagle. Cookie’s mother was a beagle, and her father was a miniature apricot poodle. When we adopted Cookie, she was solid black with brown features. As she grew the brown changed to apricot and the black receded. Cookie is smart, loving, devoted and stubborn. She loves all outdoor activity, especially swimming. She knows no strangers and loves to greet people on our travels. She is quick with her tongue, and gives many kisses. Cookie has been a wonderful addition to our family!

We have an amazing 15 week poogle. He is one of the sweetest dogs.He has already learned to ring the bell to go out, as he is so quick to learn. We already have him in a car seat and he is becoming an adventure dogs. He and our other dog are figuring out their relationship as we have a 10 year old who likes to sleep. The cats have taught him the way of the kitty, and he is doing fine with them. He is so loving and really a great dog. Our breeder told us he would be about 12 pounds at adulthood. We will try him in the kayak next summer.
