Beagle Dog Variations
The American Kennel Club recognize two separate varieties of Beagle: the 13 inches for dogs under 13 inches (33 cm) and 15-inch for those between 13 and 15 inches (33 cm and 38). The Canadian Kennel Club recognizes only one type of height not exceeding 15 inches (38 cm). The Kennel Club (UK) and companies affiliated to the FCI recognizes only one type, with a height between 13 and 16 inches (33 cm and 41).
A Puggle, a cross of Beagle / Pug, has characteristics of both breeds.
Variety of British and Americans are sometimes mentioned. However, no official recognition from any Kennel Club for this award. Beagles are compatible with the standard American Kennel Club - which does not allow animals more than 15 inches (38 cm) below the average standard connection, the Kennel Club, which can reach up to 16 inches (41 cm).
Pocket Beagles are sometimes offered for sale, but the seed of this variety is extinct, and although the UK Kennel Club originally specified a standard for the Pocket Beagle in 1901, the variety is not recognized by any kennel clubs. Often, small Beagles are the result of the creation or growth retardation.
A strain known as Dog Patch was developed by Willet Randall and his family from 1896 specifically for its ability to hunt rabbits. They trace their lineage to the revision of the Champion field, but not necessarily a patchwork marking.
In 1850, Stonehenge recommended a cross between a beagle and a Scottish terrier as a retriever. He found the place to be a good worker, silent and obedient, but had the disadvantage that was small and could barely carry a hare.
More recently, the trend has been that of "designer dogs" and one of the most popular was the cross of Beagle / Pug known as a Puggle. Less nervous than a lighter and with a lower exercise requirement, these dogs have adapted to living in a city.
