Beaglolo Breed History

The Beaglolo is a new breed that does not have a lot of recorded history.  However, we can discuss the parental background to get an idea of the story behind the hybrid. The original Beagle was bred in England for tracking and hunting.  Originally, they were termed “Pocket Beagles” because they were so small, they could easily fit inside the hunter’s pockets. 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 call. The call was an easy way for the hunter to know where the hunt was headed. The term “Beagle” was not used until the year 1475.  The Beagle is a scent hound and uses his keen sense of smell to track the prey. In the 18th century, hunting with larger dogs became more popular.  The Pocket Beagle were no longer being used for hunting and the breed almost became extinct. Fortunately, Beagle lovers were determined to preserve the breed. In the 1840’s there was four types of Beagles: Medium Beagle, Lapdog Beagle, Fox Beagle, and the Rough-Coated or Terrier Beagle. In 1870, General Richard Rowett was one of the first people to import Beagles from England to the United States. General Rowett established standards for his Beagles and his Beagles served as the examples for the first “American Beagles”. Beagles were recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1884. The United States Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) uses trained Beagles to inspect luggage for contraband food and plants.  These trained Beagles are called the Beagle Brigade. They are responsible for approximately 75,000 successful seizures per yearly. The first recorded mention of the Bolognese was during the Italian Renaissance. They were kept as a companion dog by the wealthy and were often gifted to nobility. The breed was depicted as a loving pet to royalty and dignitaries in tapestry work and artwork.  The Bolognese dog was included in paintings by Goya, Titian, Gosse and Pierre Bruegel. King Philip 11 of Spain was gifted two Bolognese by the Alfonso d’Este, a duke of the house of Este. He was so delighted by the dogs, that he wrote a thank you letter saying, “These two little dogs are the most royal gifts one can make to an emperor.” With the decline of nobility and the commencement of World War II, the Bolognese almost became extinct.  Thankfully, there were a few European breeders determined to preserve the breed.

Beaglolo Breed Appearance

Because both the Beagle and the Bolognese have very different appearances, it is difficult to say what their offspring will look like. Variations of color, size and temperament often occur within the same litter. The Beaglolo will be a small to medium size dog.  The coat is typically white or cream, though black has been seen, and is medium to long and wavy or curly. Most often the Beaglolo will have drop ears and dark expressive eyes.  The Beaglolo may have a medium size muzzle with a black button nose. Regardless which parent breed the Beaglolo takes after, he will be an adorable puppy with a cheerful smile, bright eyes and an eager disposition.

Beaglolo Breed Maintenance

The Beaglolo coat may be medium to long and wavy.  His coat will need to be brushed and combed daily to prevent matting and tangles. If your Beaglolo is white or cream, carefully wipe around the eyes when needed if tear staining seems to be an issue. Your Beaglolo’s teeth should be brushed several times a week to prevent tartar buildup.  Drop down ears will need to be checked and monitored as dogs with drop down ears can experience an accumulation of moisture leading yeast or bacteria growth Some Beaglolo owners prefer that their dog is shampooed, has his nails trimmed, ears inspected and cleaned, and hair clipped by a professional groomer monthly or every 6 weeks.

Beaglolo Temperament

The Beaglolo will have a combination of the Beagle and the Bolognese temperaments.  The Bolognese is a happy, sweet and friendly companion. He enjoys play and daily walks but is not a high energy dog. If properly socialized, the Bolognese enjoys making new friends with people and other dogs. The breed is not a big barker and does not have a yappy bark. Beagles are intelligent, affectionate, curious and friendly. Beagles are high energy, and best suited for an active family that enjoys hiking, jogging and other outdoor adventures.  They can suffer from separation anxiety leading to excessive barking or howling. Both the Bolognese and the Beagle breeds love children.  However, children should never be left unsupervised with any dog. Overall, if you are looking for a gentle yet feisty companion with tons of love to give, the Beaglolo may be just the addition you are looking for.

Beaglolo Activity Requirements

Your Beaglolo may be a medium to high energy dog. They enjoy daily walks, interactive play with the family and activities that are above and beyond boring such as hiking short distances and trips to beach or park. Because of the Beagle’s hunting instinct you should not walk your Beaglolo off leash.  They may catch a scent and decide that trailing the scent is more interesting than practising their recall skills. This hybrid can tolerate all temperatures but do not have them out in the extremes, whether hot or cold, for lengthy amounts of time. If your Beaglolo likes to be vocal, an urban or rural home will be better than an apartment setting.
