Boxer Beagle Mix – Meet the Bogle
The breed originated from England. They are known as “the little dog with a big heart”. They have been bred for their docile nature and love of humans. The breed was originally developed to assist blind dogs during hunting expeditions. These days they are used for search and rescue work, police work, therapy animals, therapy dogs and many other uses.
There are over 100 different breeds of beagles in existence today!
They are very intelligent and loyal. They make excellent family pets. They are adaptable and will readily adjust to any home environment. Some boxers even prefer living indoors due to their calm personality and desire to stay inside. Boxer beagles do not bark much, but they still need regular exercise, so they should always have a routine of some sort set up for them every day or at least once a week (or sooner if possible).
These dogs are known for their loving disposition and affectionate nature. They tend to be friendly towards strangers, but may become aggressive when cornered. They can get bored easily and will often seek out new things to do. They like human companionship and will enjoy spending time with you, but they cannot live without physical contact which means being held, petted or stroked regularly. If you are looking for a dog that will snuggle up to you on the couch while you watch TV, the beagle is probably not for you.
These dogs should always have something to do. If you do not provide them with a stimulating environment, then they may start to get destructive or bored and develop habits such as digging, chewing, barking or howling.
The Beagle is an excellent family dog due to their friendly and affectionate nature. They can be great with children provided that the children know how to treat them kindly. Some Beagles are slightly wary of older kids who like to pull their ears or tail, but can handle them provided that they get regular exercise. They are very gentle dogs and are tolerant of junior painters, pullers and huggers. They have a habit of crawling under your feet which means they can easily get hurt by bigger people walking heavily or jumping about.
You will rarely meet a more loving animal than the beagle. These dogs need socialization throughout their lives. They do not like to be left alone and should never be kenneled. They need to interact with their families in order to stay happy and healthy. They are very intelligent and need to have their minds stimulated.
When bored, they will find their own forms of entertainment which are not always appropriate or desired. They can become destructive when bored. These dogs should always have human contact. The beagle cannot thrive without affection, and its best if you are fond of cuddling and hugging. Beagles enjoy playing outside in a fenced yard where they can expend some of their energy chasing after a ball or Frisbee. Beagles are easy to train provided that you are firm, calm and consistent. They respond well to reward based training techniques. Harsh methods should never be used.
Beagles have a great sense of smell, which they use to follow a scent of interest to them. This is why they tend to follow their noses everywhere. Many of them like to wander and get lost due to the fact that they are attracted by interesting smells. You must always keep an eye on your Beagle when outside. If you are in an area that contains scent trails that your Beagle is interested in following, then they will wander away and get distracted.
They have been known to wander from yards, through neighborhoods and even onto the freeway. This makes them a bad choice for people in urban areas, however in rural settings they can make a great pet as long as they have plenty of exercise and attention. The breed has a tendency to follow its nose rather than commands from its owner. This can make training a challenge although it is certainly not impossible, it just takes a lot of patience and determination.
Beagles tend to follow their noses everywhere, which is why they make poor guard dogs. They will let anyone that grabs their attention into the house or yard. One way to prevent this from happening is to have them wear an Elizabethan collar. These are commonly known as a E-collar and are shaped like a cone. They are made from hard plastic and have holes for a dog’s head and front legs to go through.
They extend out past the dog’s nose so that they can’t get it past the tips of their nose. Beagles can still eat, drink and bark with an E-collar on. It is usually used to prevent them from licking, biting or scratching at wounds or infections. The collars can also be used to stop them from getting to places they shouldn’t such as counter tops or garbage cans. E-collars should be used with caution since they can really hinder a dog’s ability to eat or drink. They should be removed when not needed since they prevent the dog from enjoying itself.
Beagles are one of the least healthy breeds out there. They have a lot of issues that they are prone to having. The following are some of the major ones that you need to be aware of.
Glaucoma: This is a condition that effects the eyes and causes a gradual loss of vision. It is caused by an increase in pressure within the eyeballs. The cause is unknown, but it tends to run in families. There is currently no cure, however it can be controlled with medication. The medication is expensive and the treatments need to be ongoing.
Treatment: Glaucoma is treated with regular medication, with eye drops being the most common. This will control the pressure in the eye and prevent vision loss.
If you Have this Issue Get it Checked Out: Any time a dog starts to show signs of vision problems, or starts rubbing at their eyes, they should see a vet right away. While this is common in older dogs, in Beagles it tends to start at a much younger age.
Hip Dysplasia: This condition causes the hips to not fully develop while the dog is still a pup. The connection between the hip and the rest of the body does not form properly. Instead of the ball and socket type joint that they are supposed to have, they end up with a stilted joint that has more of a sliding motion. While some dogs live perfectly normal lives with the disease, in severe cases it can cause lameness. The cause of the condition is unknown, but it tends to run in families.
Treatment: Dysplasia is most commonly diagnosed when a dog is younger, between 5 and 12 weeks. If caught early enough surgery can be done to repair the joint. Some dogs grow out of the condition and do not display signs of having it.
