The history of both parent breeds can gave an idea of the background of your hybrid as the Beagle Pit is not yet documented in the history books. It is believed that Beagle-type dogs have existed for over 2,500 years. The modern breed originated in Great Britain around the 1800s. They were bred to track rabbits with their keen sense of smell and ability to follow a trail for miles. These scent hounds were much smaller than the Beagle of today, fitting into the hunter’s pocket. Still, their skill was such that breeders wanted to increase the size of the breed but keep the innate hunting attributes in the dog. Beagles were imported into United States in the 1860s and the Beagle was accepted as a breed by the American Kennel Club in 1885. Today, The American Kennel Club ranks the Beagle breed as in the top ten of popular dogs. One of the most famous Beagles known is Snoopy, the Peanuts comic strip character who entertained many with his antics as the Red Baron atop his doghouse. “Pit Bull” is the common name for canines including the American Pit Bull Terrier, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, the American Staffordshire Bull Terrier, and the American Bully. Pit Bulls were created by breeding Bulldogs and Terriers together. First used in the bull-baiting and dog-fighting rings, they moved on to a gentler life as the companion we see today. Moving on from Europe, the Pit Bull was brought to the United States by European immigrants during the 1800’s. Selective breeding was then used to increase their weight and enlarged their heads. Pit Bulls are extremely loyal dogs, trained to be soldiers, police dogs, search and rescue dogs, and therapy dogs. They have been part of television shows and movies such as the Little Rascals, Pit Bull and Parolees, Flashdance, Parks and Recreation, No Country for Old Men and John Wick 2. (John Wick 1 feature a Beagle.) The Beagle Pitbull mix is recognized by the Dog Registry of America as being an official mixed-breed dog.
