Bogle Hybrid Dogs
A very muscular, sleek and athletic looking hybrid dog, the Bogle is really a very close match to both its parent breeds. From the Boxer it gets the deep chest, well positioned legs and expressive face and from the Beagle it gets the longer body, well balanced stance and longer, Beagle ears.
The Bogle can be almost any color including solid colors, fawn, black and tan, tri-colored, white and black or brown or even a brindle color of brown and black. They often have white markings on the face, chest area as well as the lower parts of the front and back legs. Bogles are typically a medium sized dog and can weigh up to 50 to 60 pounds when fully mature.

The tail of the Bogle is moderately long and very tapered when left natural. The neck and front shoulders are well developed and powerful in appearance without appearing bulky or heavy. The head is typically the wide, slightly rounded head of the Boxer with a shorter muzzle than a Beagle but not the very short muzzle of the Boxer. These hybrid dog types have lips are slightly pendulous but not loose and do not typically hang below the jaw line. The skin across the forehead is slightly to moderately wrinkly, adding a lot of expression to the face. The eyes are dark to light brown, round is shape and well set.
Bogle Hybrid Dog
The Bogle is a great family dog that always seems to be happy go lucky and ready to jump into action. They are excellent watchdog with either the deep bay of the Beagle or the equally deep bark of the Boxer. The Bogle hybrid dog can be somewhat boisterous and will need obedience training as soon as possible to prevent bad habits from developing. They are especially likely to have the jumping behaviors of the Boxer which can lead to concerns with the dog knocking over children or adults in their excitement.
The Bogle can be a good companion dog provided they are socialized and trained to interact with non-canine pets. With other dogs they can be somewhat dog-aggressive however socialization and obedience training will minimize this concern.

Grooming and General Care
The Bogle with its sleek coat requires little in the way of grooming, making it a good choice as a canine hybrid. A rubberized grooming mitt or a soft bristle brush will usually suffice. They do enjoy water and love to have a bath. The breed can have allergies to food and some environmental materials so carefully monitor the skin and coat for any signs of hot spots, irritations or hair loss.
