50-85 lbs

Medium in size, the Reagle is a cross between a Rottweiler and a Beagle. This hybrid is found to be very loyal and devoted to its owner, enjoying demonstrating his affection to members of his household. The Reagle will do well with children and other household pets and will enjoy playing and interacting with them. As a result of the scenting skills inherited from his Beagle parent, the Reagle can easily get caught up in chasing rodents and other animals and thus require proper training to avoid doing so. He can act like a clown at times and be a lot of fun to have around. While the Reagle will initially be wary of strangers, it does not take long for him to happily accept them.

Reagle Breed History

The Reagle is a relatively new hybrid, though the two breeds that make the hybrid have long histories. The term “beagle" is believed to have come from a French word that means “open throat”; in the case of the breed, the name is thought to have been given in response to the way the Beagle bays. The history of the breed is not well-documented though it is thought that the Beagle is a descendent of the pack hounds from prior to the Roman era. The Beagle that we know today originated in the 1800’s in England as a result of breeding between the Talbot Hound, North Country Beagle and the Southern Hound. The breed was bred to have a relaxed temperament and good hunting skills. In the 1840’s the Beagle came to the United States to function as a hunting dog and was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1885. It is thought that the Rottweiler originated around 74 AD when Roman soldiers of the 11th Legion of the Roman Empire arrived in the Wurttemberg region of Germany. During this time, they crossed German Shepherds with the dogs that they brought with them (Roman drover dogs or Mastiffs) to herd cattle and act as guards. The result was a large and strong dog that was ultimately named the Rottweiler, after the area became known as Rottweil. The dogs were initially used to drive herds of cattle as well as guard them at night; later they were put to work pulling carts and wagons as well as hunting bear. During the mid 1800’s, as railways were built, cattle driving was no longer allowed. Once donkeys worked as the main draft animal, the Rottweiler lost popularity until butchers began using them to pull carts of meat. Dogs of the breed began to work as police and guard dogs during World War I and the breed was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1931. 

Reagle Breed Appearance

The Reagle will inherit traits from both of his parent breeds; as with all mixed breeds, you can anticipate that he may inherit more physical characteristics from one or the other parent breeds, or a relatively equal combination of traits from each breed. The Rottweiler is often black with tan markings while the Beagle usually has a white base and markings of another color. The color of the Reagle will vary greatly. The dogs will be medium in size with a compact build, typically with almond-shaped eyes, a long snout and floppy ears. The fur of the Reagle will be medium in length, and he will often have a shorter, softer undercoat around his chest and thighs.

Reagle Breed Maintenance

Your Reagle should not shed heavily and is relatively easy to maintain. Brushing two to three times per week is recommended and will help keep his coat looking healthy. Bathing should occur every other month or when necessary because your dog has gotten particularly dirty. As with all dogs, you will want to brush your Reagle’s teeth several times a week to ensure his long-term dental health. The nails of the Rottweiler tend to grow quickly, therefore it is important to keep your eye on the nails of your Reagle and clip them as needed. Both physical and mental stimulation will be important for your Reagle, as it will keep him physically healthy and ensure he avoids boredom.

Reagle Temperament

The Reagle will inherit his behavioral traits from his parent breeds, the Rottweiler and the Beagle. Your hybrid will enjoy lounging around with his humans as well as spending time outdoors being active with other people and dogs. Upon meeting someone new, your Reagle will likely require a little bit of time before he is comfortable, however once he is this social dog will be happy to have a new friend. The Reagle will often demonstrate behavior described as clownish and will be a lot of fun to have around. As the hybrid can be obstinate on occasion, obedience and socialization training should begin as early as possible. A dog of the hybrid will typically be loving and loyal to his humans and should not be expected to spend large amounts of time outdoors, away from his family. 

Reagle Activity Requirements

You can expect your Reagle to be an active dog; he will enjoy going for a walk or a jog with you and that will ensure that he remains healthy. He will also benefit from engaging in outdoor play and the ability explore outside in a fenced in yard where he can run and play without a leash. When your Reagle is not in a fenced in space, it is important that he remain on a leash. As a result of his genetics, the Reagle is likely to run after animals or objects that he shouldn’t and the leash will help keep him (and other animals) safe.

We have a chihuhua mixed with a pomeranian who is only a year old. We then have came to a decision to get a kitten and she is now 6 months, very cute and she loves messing with our dog since now they are both in the similar height. My mother was on facebook and saw a woman giving 6 reagles away because her beagle had gotten lose and mated with a rotweiler and they couldn't keep them all and thats how we got Binky. SHe's only three months right now and she big and very playful with our dog but she can be a bit too agressive at times especially with him and our cat come downstairs to see her but she stays on the couch to watch from above. We will be looking for training clases for her soon because its a bit too much for her to be so agressive and were not use to it yet. SHes a baby bear all the time and shes so preciosu and she loves and has to sleep on you or by your neck and she cries when shes alone. We take her on walsk and she doesn't bark at people or dogs and she is shy. SHe loves the dog park, its her favorite thing to do.
