Beagle Shepherd Breed History

The term “Beagle” is believed to have been derived from the old French word “becquele”, which means “noisy person” or “open throat”.  This term was probably used because of the breed’s loud baying.  Baying is like a loud howling, which alerts the hunter that his pack has located the prey. It is the scent hound’s way to say, “over here” and the hunter can then follow the baying.  The term “Beagle” was not used until 1475.  However, Beagle-like dogs were bred in England for rabbit hunting since the 1300’s. The original Beagle was a pocket-size dog. Beagles were imported into United States in the 1860s. The Beagle was accepted as a breed by the American Kennel Club in 1885. As of 2017, the American Kennel Club ranks the Beagle breed in the top ten of popular breeds. The Beagle has been featured in movies such as Cats & Dogs, Shiloh, John Wick and Wonderdog. There are famous cartoon Beagles, which include Snoopy, Underdog, Mr. Peabody and Gromit. Beagles are not only great companions and celebrities, they are also working dogs. The United States government has trained Beagles since 1984 to patrol airports, cargo facilities, and sea and border entry points. The Beagle uses his keen sense of smell to stop illegal drugs, contraband foods, and plants from entering the United States. The German Shepherd originated in Germany in the 1800’s and was initially bred as a herding dog. They were protective and vigilant over the flock. The German Shepherd would not only bring back a lost sheep; they would also fight off predators. In 1891 The Phylax Society was formed to create set standards for the breed. Unfortunately, they could not agree if the German Shepherd should be bred to be solely a working dog or should the breeding also focus on his appearance. The Phylax Society disbanded after three years. In 1899, an ex-member of The Phylax Society, Max von Stephanitz, attended a dog show. In the show was a dog named Hektor Linksrhein, who was the result of selective breeding.  Mr. Stephanitz was impressed by Hektor’s appearance, intelligence and strength. He purchased Hektor and renamed him Horand von Grafrath.  Mr. Stephanitz then established the Society for the German Shepherd Dog. His dog Horand was the first German Shepherd added to the society's breed register. Horand was then bred with other German Shepherds that had the appropriate traits. The German Shepherd grew in popularity throughout Europe. Over 80,000 German Shepherd were recruited by the Germans during World War l and World War ll. In 1993, they became the third most popular breed in the United States. As of 2017, the German Shepherd is the second most popular dog in the United States. They are currently used for police work, military work, search-and-rescue, watchdogs, narcotic detection, therapy dogs, and guide dogs. The breed is highly intelligent and loyal. German Shepherds have made devoted companions to President Kennedy, Elvis, Chuck Norris, Amy Grant, Diane Keaton, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, Ben Affleck and Tom Hanks.

Beagle Shepherd Breed Appearance

The characteristics of the Beagle Shepherd will be a combination of his parents.  Most Beagle Shepherds have drop ears, which are not floppy. The Beagle Shepherd is a medium size dog. His coat is dense and may be short to medium in length. The Beagle Shepherd is a strong, sturdy and muscular dog. They have almond shaped dark eyes that are alert and full of expression. His muzzle will be medium to long with a black nose. The Beagle Shepherd will most likely have a long tail. An appealing face gives the impression of a trusted friend.

Beagle Shepherd Breed Maintenance

The Beagle Shepherd has a dense short to medium coat, which requires regular combing and brushing. A pin brush will work well and remove the hair that may be loose as well as untangle the fur and remove debris. Bathing can be done monthly. Their drop ears should be cleaned with an ear wash weekly, though watch out for moisture accumulation - make sure the ear is dried thoroughly after each cleaning. To prevent tartar, his teeth should be brushed twice a week. Nails should be trimmed monthly but because he is an active dog, the chance of a nail breaking or cracking is significant if they are left too long. If your Beagle Shepherd's nails grow fast, trim them on a bi-weekly basis.

Beagle Shepherd Temperament

The temperament of the Beagle Shepherd will be a mix of the Beagle and German Shepherd personalities and character traits.  The Beagle is an energetic, playful and active breed. They are lovable, affectionate and gentle.  They can be a little stubborn and should have early obedience training and socialization.  The Beagle does not like being left alone and may suffer from separation anxiety. The German Shepherd Dog is loyal, confident, intelligent and courageous. They make loving family companions. The German Shepherd is highly trainable and enjoys working  at tasks such as track & field and agility training, and being a therapy dog.  The breed is protective by nature, which makes him a good watch dog. He should be socialized with strangers and other dogs at an early age.  If properly socialized, the German Shepherd is not aggressive. Both the Beagle and the German Shepherd are good with children, though small children should always be supervised when around any dog.

Beagle Shepherd Activity Requirements

The Beagle Shepherd is a family dog who will require attention and consistency in command. To prevent boredom, he should be provided chew and interactive toys.  Due to his scent hound side, the Beagle Shepherd should not be walked off leash. Because they suffer from separation anxiety, this hybrid will benefit from a pet sitter taking them for a midday walk while you are at work.  The Beagle Shepherd should not be left unsupervised in a back yard as they can easily dig out and get lost or hurt. It is a good idea to have your dog micro-chipped.  If your curious Beagle Shepherd ever gets lost, he can be scanned by a rescue group and traced back to you.

He’s a ball of energy that requires constant attention. But when he knows you’re tired, he gets tired and ready for bed. If you leave his sight for longer than 5 minutes he acts like he hasn’t seen you in months. He is great around everyone and loves to meet new people. I was so surprised how smart he is and how he shows emotions.

Ruby loves everyone, both people and animals. Anything she sees is an immediate friend, even if they don't know that they are. She is extremely curious and playful. If she gets bored however, she will chew anything and everything, including her crate or even electronic cords (she sniffs them out somehow!). She loves being around people and gets sad when she's alone. Overall she's the cutest and sweetest friend.

Roxie is an amazing dog. We adopted her from Tennessee where she was apparently given up for being a poor guard dog. She is so friendly- we have only ever heard her bark at raccoons and opossums. When strangers come into the house, she will approach them and sit waiting for them to pet her. She is so obedient! Off leash, I can send her to chase turkeys or rabbits in the yard- but if I call her, she will turn and come right to me mid-stride. She's so eager to please people. She's gentle with kids and cats. She will appropriately set boundaries with other dogs. She gains weight quite easily, even with tons of exercise, so you really have to watch food intake. When we got her a few months ago, she was 90lbs. We now have her down to 75, but 60 is probably where she needs to be. In the spring, she shed her thick winter undercoat. I found that this is best done by a professional groomer once a year, as it is just so much fur.

I could write a book on how well-behaved & easily trainable Nala has been. However, once she goes outside that’s a different story. She is known for jumping and climbing fences & digging holes. She has to be supervised in our fenced in backyard. Outside of the fence she absolutely has to be on a leash or she will wander off. She is extremely hyper & friendly and is very good with babies & kids.

We adopted Tyler from a great rescue-originally from Alabama when he was 13 months old. His manners were good and he listens very well. He loves car rides and doing new things and is food motivated. Napping is a favorite pastime (often upside-down), as long as we're not doing something. We've never crated him and he's good when we're gone. He's a protector and barks at strangers and other dogs. He's loved meeting our friends & family and wouldn't leave the side of my 96 yr old aunt when she visited! We are loving our little boy and can't wait to see him blossom in obedience training next month.

He is a brilliant dog. He picks up on social cues, can learn a new trick in the matter of minutes, and loves to keep me in sight at all times. He gets so excited when he gets a new stuffed friend that it may last a day (if i'm lucky). Teething was a big issue, but once he learned what he can/can't chew on, he became so sweet and gentle. He loves people and all other animals. His energy is like a toddler. He does not stop until he literally cannot move anymore from exhaustion.

We adopted Ollie from the shelter when he was almost five. He was abused by the previous owners brother so he had a great fear of men. He has come around, we also had to help him get use to people coming and going from the home often. He had separation anxiety people badly for the first few months. He gets along very well with smaller or equal to size dogs but is a bit skiddish around smaller children. We presume there were not so friendly children in his previous home. Ollie came to us with bad teeth and had to have 8 of them pulled and needs his teeth cleaned monthly or his breath gets really stinky. Also UTI's are very common in this breed.

Muppy was a very unique dog. He loved being a part of our family. In his younger years he loved to be chased, and very curious about his surroundings. We could never figure it out but he managed to escape from a 5 foot fence on many occasions. He would climb the corner of the fence. He could jump very high, and enjoyed jumping often. As a puppy he cried until he could sleep near someone. We could not get him used to the crate, and quickly gave up on it. It was ok though because he was potty trained quickly and easily. Food was his biggest issue, and he could not help himself if the opportunity arouse. He was a sweet dog, knew many amazing tricks and lived a very long and healthy life. We had Muppy 18 great years, and will miss this fun loving unique dog. I would definitely recommend this mix as long as you can get past the food thing.

Guinness is very friendly. He hasn't met a stranger yet. He knows what time I get home and greets me every day. He learned to sit and shake within 10 minutes. He loves his toys and does not destroy them. He loves to chew on a rawhide or Kong toy. He barks at people walking by the house but will stop when told to do so. He's sweet and lovable but does not like to be disturbed once he has settled for the night. He absolutely hated his crate but is okay being gated in the kitchen and dining room area when we are gone from the house. He does have some separation anxiety, but it is getting better. Guinness is 7 months old right now and 35 pounds. The vet does not think he will grow to be much bigger.

She’s such a good dog, very smart and learns any trick very fast. At 3 years old when i got her, she learned how to sit, shake, and roll over in one week.

I've had Henry for four years and honestly, I couldn't have asked for a better dog. He's the perfect size he is 40lbs so I think he is slightly bigger than most his breed but he is still very fit and loves to go on walks. We have no fence in our backyard and have field and forest in our backyard so we see a lot of wildlife and he loves it he loves animals and people. He brought me a baby mouse one day and he was very careful not to hurt it. Very affectionate! He doesn't mind children at all and is very obedient. He reminds me of a police dog obedience wise.

I adopted Cornelius when he was about 1 year old. I immediately registered him for obedience classes because I was nervous about the beagle side of him. I find that Cornelius loves to learn new tricks. Even now that his obedience school is complete, i am still able to teach him new tricks constantly. Learning new tricks is a great way for him to channel his high energy levels. At the dog park he runs and plays with other dogs confidently. In my apartment, he is much more calm docile. He is very adaptable to his surroundings. He basically has the playfulness of a beagle and the obedience of a German Shepherd...best of both worlds (and he’s the perfect size).

Shacklebolt is not afraid to look to strangers for pets, but he does not enjoy the company of other dogs unless they ignore him. He does get anxious and does not like to sleep in different houses. While Shacklebolt has slowed down a bit in his older years, he was full of energy for the first few years he lived with me. I did not train him but he has never had an accident and only chews on his toys. My favorite part about him is that he is a nuzzled and snuggled. I absolutely adore him!
