Beagle Pom
The Pomeagle is a hybrid dog that is the result of crossing a Pomeranian with a Beagle. Although they can vary in size, generally they are small dogs that are intelligent, affectionate and a true companion. They will happily follow you everywhere you go, unless they get side tracked by something else that catches their eye. Like a young child, they can be incredibly curious and want to investigate any new thing. They adapt well to apartment living or a home with an enclosed yard - just ensure the fence is solid so they can't get out and disappear down the road after an interesting scent. The Pomeagle needs firm patient training, and it needs to be fun or they will switch off and find other things to do. They can inherit a stubborn streak from their Beagle parent, and may prefer doing things their way. Patience and kindness will win them over in the end. The Pomeagle can make a fine family dog, just ensure that they are socialised well when young.

Pomeagle Breed History

The Beagle parent's history is sparse - the dog we know today really didn't develop until the 19th century. Greek history documents dogs much like the Beagle in 400 B.C., and the Romans brought small hounds ideal for rabbit hunting with them when they came to England. Talbot Hounds arrived with William the Conqueror in 1066 and it is these dogs that are thought to be the ancestors of the Beagle. Over the years the Beagle has enjoyed popularity especially during 1307 to 1509 in the courts of Edward II and Henry VII and were used for fox hunting, but they fell out of favor because of the larger Foxhounds that were faster and more agile. Luckily the farmers in England, Ireland and Wales continued to breed them for rabbit and hare hunting. Around the 1800s the Beagle was imported into America, where they bred them to be smaller than the English hound. The patch Beagle strain was developed by Willet Randall in New York around 1800, which resulted in an attractive dog who was primarily white but with large tri colored spots. The American Kennel Club began registering Beagles in 1884. Since then, the Beagle has only increased in popularity, branching out into other careers such as search and rescue, drug detection, and as a therapy dog. The Pomeranian came from the province of Pomerania, having been developed from ancient Spitz breeds. These dogs were characterised by their wedge shaped heads, perky ears and dense furry coats. They have always enjoyed popularity and notable people such as Isaac Newton and  Mozart were devoted owners. When  Princess Charlotte from Pomerania married an English Prince, (soon to become King George III) she brought with her two white Poms, and the breed became popular in royal circles. But it was Queen Victoria, an avid dog lover, who promoted the Pomeranian as loving companions and confidants, and bred them to be much smaller than their standard 20 pounds. These tiny ambassadors rocketed to popularity and have continued to this day to be one of the most popular dog breeds. The American Kennel Club recognised the breed in 1909.

Pomeagle Breed Appearance

The Pomeagle appearance can vary, even within a litter of puppies. Some may inherit more of the Beagle traits while others may be more orientated towards the Pomeranian. Generally they are a small dog, but some can be as large as the Beagle. They have an elegant slightly squared  muzzle, black button nose, and bright sparkling round eyes. Their ears can either be erect or floppy, depending again on the genetic influence of the parent dog. The body is longer than it is high, and the legs are slender but strong, with small rounded paws. The tail often is curled high above the back, and the coat can vary from smooth like the Beagle to soft and fluffy like the Pomeranian. The color can vary from brown, tan, cream, red, brindle, orange, white, or sable. Like a well presented model, the Pomeagle has stunning good looks and a gentle sweet nature to match.

Pomeagle Breed Maintenance

The Pomeagle requires brushing every other day just to remove loose hair and prevent tangles, especially if they have inherited the Pomeranian coat. A firm bristle brush should keep up with the shedding hair, but you may need to vacuum more often than normal with a Pomeagle around. These small dogs don't need bathing too often, but when you do, be sure to use a mild dog shampoo to maintain the natural skin oils. Nails need to be clipped if they are too long, and teeth will benefit from regular brushing. Most dogs need their ears to be checked, as dirt and debris can build up and start infection. A gentle wipe out with a damp cloth is all that is needed. Your Pomeagle will love the attention and will remind you when it is pamper time again.

Pomeagle Temperament

The Pomeagle is a happy, lively little dog who is intensely loyal to his owners. These dogs are intelligent and are perfect show or agility dogs. Quick to learn, they enjoy a challenge and as long as it is fun they will be easy to train. They can be sensitive to tone, so positive reinforcement is necessary. The Pomeagle can also become anxious if left alone for long periods of time. They are people dogs, they love to be with you and be part of your team. This active, inquisitive dog will want to know about everything you are doing, and they will be by your side helping you to do it. The Pomeagle has the Pomeranian tendencies to warn you of strangers on your turf; they will bark to alert you - no one can escape their sharp eyesight. They make great family dogs and get on well with young children, but as puppies they are very small, so play between the children and the dog needs to be supervised to ensure little ones don't manhandle these small pooches. From the Beagle side, they inherit the strong hunting instincts; it is natural for them to chase fast moving furry or feathered creatures. If they are raised with a cat or dog it may be different, but awareness of this characteristic is important for the safety of all pets. These appealing, comical and engaging little dogs makes them ideal companions for families or a single person. With a Pomeagle at your side, you will never be lonely.

Pomeagle Activity Requirements

The Pomeagle will get a lot of its exercise by following you closely as you walk around the house or yard. But they still need a daily walk which is an important part of their socialisation skills. Meeting other dogs while they are out at the dog park, or accompanying you on a walk is a great way to get them used to other dogs and to keep them fit and healthy. These dogs love to play, they excel at agility or finding things, and will enjoy games at home. As they have strong hunting instincts, it is advisable to walk them on a leash, otherwise they may take off after a fast moving bird or furry animal, regardless of your shouted instructions to come back. While they enjoy activity, they also like chilling out with you, curled up on your lap or beside you on a comfy couch. True companions, whatever you do is alright with them.
