As a hybrid resulting from cross-breeding the Beagle with the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, the Beaglier generally features a combination of traits from these two breeds. In the past few years, hybrids such as the Beaglier have become increasingly popular especially with the current designer dog trend. To achieve purebred dogs from cross breeding, hybrid vigor is certainly required. This involves consistent breeding that aims toward healthier dogs that have superior genetic constitutions. Currently, this experimentation of hybrid dogs is not recognized by either the American Kennel Club or Canadian Kennel Club.
Beagliers are good-natured dogs that feature a calm disposition.
Like its Beagle ancestor, the Beaglier is a minimal shedder and ideal for people with allergies. These dogs have a short and hard coat that is dense and weatherproof.
Health issues of the Beaglier breed include protruding eyes, soft palate problems, patellar luxation and skin problems. They may also be afflicted with hip dysplasia, epilepsy, mitral valve disease or lethal heart conditions.
Much like the Beagle, the Beaglier should be exercised on leash since they have a tendency to wander. Most of their exercise requirements can be satisfied with a large back yard that provides ample space to roam.
While not abundantly easy to train, the Beaglier hybrid breed responds well to basic obedience training.
