Poogle Hybrid Dogs

Updated on July 2, 2011


Physical Description

Perhaps one of the more colorful options in the Poodle hybrid dog types, the Poogle is a cross between a Beagle and a Poodle. Typically the Poodles are either Standard in size or Miniature, meaning there is a fairly large size difference possible. Smaller Poogles are from a Miniature Poodle and larger from the Standard Poodle.  

Coats range from short and coarse to medium long and softer, but they are all typically wavy to Poodle curly. Colors are gray, black, brown, parti-colored or even tri-colored, more like the Beagle. Tails are shorter to moderately long and plumed, carried high when the dog is in motion.

The body of this hybrid dog is solid and rectangular in shaper, longer than the dog is tall. The legs are well muscled and positioned to the corners of the body. The chest is moderately large and deep and the neck is slightly longer than average and the head is typically carried high and alert. The head is more Beagle in shape than Poodle, however there is lots of wavy hair across the muzzle, cheeks and forehead, softening the overall impression. The eyes are large, round and very intelligent and friendly looking and the ears are medium long and hang down to the lower jaw line.


As with both parent dogs, this canine hybrid is friendly, outgoing and craves interactions with people. They are an excellent family dog and enjoy being around children and other dogs. Some Poogles may have the higher prey instinct of the Beagle and need to be socialized early to avoid problems with chasing cats and other pets.

The Poogle is very smart and will quickly learn what you are asking for. They excel at obedience types of training and will often seem to learn just by observing what is going on around them. As with most Poodle hybrid breeds these dogs seem to get the most reward from praise and interactions with humans. These dogs may be very puppy-ish all through their lives.


Grooming And General Care

Depending on the coat type of the Poogle grooming can be rather minimal to once or twice a week. Some Poogles, but not all, may be hypoallergenic and may be acceptable for households where there are allergy sufferers. The longer, curly coats can be clipped in a Poodle clip or a puppy clip to make grooming and shedding minimal.

Overall the Poogle is a good dog for almost any type of living condition. They prefer to be indoors with the family, but also enjoy time to get outside and run and play. Indoors they will self-exercise but they do need longer, routine walks. The type does well as an apartment dog. Some may have the baying bark of the Beagle but they are not typically problem barkers.

Some Poogles that are more like the Beagles may be prone to weight gain as they get older. By carefully monitoring food and ensuring these dogs get routine exercise these problems can be minimized or eliminated.

      I recently was giving a poogle my son found in the middle of the street in Houston. Nearby workmen said someone in a car pushed the little dog out into traffic. I didn't know what breed he was, but I looked it up and found he is a poogle, around 11 pounds, and the vet says, around five years old. I have never had a more affectionate, loving pet. He is the perfect little dog, smart as a whip, and he'a the most cuddly animal. I never knew dogs could hug, until I found this angel. Evidently, he has the best of both breeds' natures.

      Does anyone know how big a poogle will be if its from a toy poodle and beagle?

      I'll be getting one this week with a curly coat. Does anyone know if they retain a curl as they get older?

      I love the practical knowledge you share about all of these hybrid dogs and miniatures, too...and the great pictures. Especially for us novices.
