Learn More About Beabulls
Like with all hybrid and mixed breeds, the personality of a Beabull is difficult to predict, as it may favor the Beagle, Bulldog, or be a mix of both. However, in general, Beabulls are very playful, loving, and loyal dogs that make excellent family pets. They're intelligent and fairly easy to train, but may become stubborn at times, as both the Beagle and English Bulldog are known to have a stubborn streak. Beabulls typically aren't shy around strangers and will enjoy the company of just about anyone, including children and other dogs. The Beabull's patience and affection makes them a breed of choice for families with smaller children. While not overly active, Beabulls still enjoy their fair share of exercise, both mental and physical. Overall, the Beabull makes a pleasant, affectionate family companion.
Beabulls are a healthy crossbreed, but they can inherit some health problems from their parent breeds. Regular vet visits and checkups can help prevent things like hip dysplasia, hypothyroidism, digestion issues, and obesity.
Beabulls are moderately active dogs who require a medium amount of exercise. A brisk daily walk and some play time is plenty of exercise for this dog. Since their activity level isn't overly high, these dogs do not require a yard to keep them exercised. That said, they're a great breed for apartment living.
Their high shedding coat requires regular maintance to stay healthy, and stay off of your floor and furniture. They should be brushed every other day, and wiping them down with a wet cloth after brushing will help remove all of the loose hair. Their floppy ears should be cleaned regularly to prevent infection.
Beabulls are heavy shedders year round, so they are not a good choice for families with pet allergies.
Most Beabulls take on the appearance of both the Beagle and the English Bulldog, although some can look more like one parent than the other. The coat of a Beabull is typically short and coarse and tends to shed a decent amount, so it will require frequent brushing to keep shedding levels to a minimum.
The Beabull is a popular cross between a Beagle and an English Bulldog that was developed in the United States. Like with most designer breeds, it's difficult to determine when the first Beabull appeared. While some Beagle/English Bulldog mixes may have existed prior, the two breeds weren't intentionally bred until the late 1990s and early 2000s, when designer dogs became popular. Today, the Beabull has become a popular hybrid breed and has been registered by numerous dog clubs for hybrid and designer breeds, including the American Canine Hybrid Club (ACHC) and the Designer Dogs Kennel Club (DDKC).
