You might never have heard of Beaglier puppies. This is because they’re a mixed breed — a cross between the Beagle and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
Here’s everything you need to know about them.
Where To Get Beaglier Puppies
Because they’re a mixed breed, they might be easier to find in shelters, which is good news for those committed to adopting. However, you might still have to be prepared to wait and compromise by accepting an older dog into your home, or one with another breed or two mixed in. Dunkin…
It’s also possible to find a Beaglier breeder, but breeders who breed mixed dogs are a little harder to research. You can narrow down your search for a reputable purebred dog by making sure the breeder has AKC papers to prove they’re legitimate. Mixed breed dogs can’t have AKC papers, so you’ll have to be extra careful. The last thing you want is your puppy to have health or temperament issues because the breeder wasn’t selective enough in their process, or didn’t give the puppy the best start in life.
General breeder red flags include not allowing you to see where the puppy is being brought up, not allowing you to meet the parents, no health records, and a general evasiveness when it comes to answering questions. Ask all the questions you want — this is your forever friend! The_deck_ki…
The cost of a mixed breed dog can vary drastically, and run anywhere from $500 to $2000. If the cost is much less than this, start asking why. Did it not cost the breeder too much to raise them because they don’t have the socialization and vet checks they need?
These puppies could inherit any number of traits from each parent, but you can count on them being a small dog with floppy ears. They’ll likely be some combination of brown, black, and white and have a short coat.
Whether your dog is easily trainable or stubborn is really just luck, because this could come from either parent! You should be prepared for anything, though there’s no doubt your pup will be intelligent — they might just need some coaxing to bring out the best in them. Pretty_Pets…
They will bond very well with their owners though, and should be sweet, affectionate, and loving dogs.
It’s important to remember that Beagles have a prey drive and your dog may inherit this. If they’re going to be living with cats or other small animals, take introductions slowly and never leave them alone unsupervised — even when you trust them! You can put up a baby gate between rooms to give the cats somewhere to go. This should help immensely with their relationship.
Beaglier Puppies – Veterinary Needs
Like any dogs, Beaglier puppies need a series of shots to protect them against nasty viruses like parvovirus, distemper, etc. This series usually starts when they’re eight weeks old (though your breeder might get them shots before) and ends when they’re around sixteen to eighteen weeks. They’ll also get other vaccines at the end — most importantly, rabies. Whereswally…
Any dog needs a veterinary check-up once a year, and you should make sure you keep these. It’s hard to tell which issues mixed breeds may have, so vets will keep checking them over at these appointments to ensure they’re on the path to good adult health still!
You should also keep up with their flea and tick prevention medicine. Your bet can advise you on the best one for you.
The main thing you should avoid when it comes to diet is grain-free food, as this has been linked to heart disease in dogs. Otherwise, kibble is a convenient choice for feeding. Just make sure that you check out the ingredients and ask for your vet’s advice. Some dry food is full of filler and doesn’t have the proper nutrients your dog needs.
This can cause health issues down the line! Pepper…
Some people swear by feeding raw. If you choose this, it’s important to do it right. Dogs are omnivores and need more than just meat. There are subscription services out there that will create the meals for you and ship them right to your door. Don’t just throw down some raw meat for your dog, as they’ll be missing grains and veggies!
When it comes to grooming, a Beaglier should be relatively low maintenance. Clean their ears and teeth often to prevent infections and health issues.
You should also clip their nails every six to eight weeks, or whenever they start to tap on the floor. You can use nail clippers or a Dremel, but the key is introducing them at an early age with lots of treats. That way, they associate nail care with good things! Baxter…
They have short coats, so they shouldn’t need to be groomed a lot. Brushing them once every few days should be sufficient to keep that coat in top shape.
