A brief presentation of the Beagle Point

The Beagle Point is a designer breed that crosses the Beagle with the English Pointer. They are medium-sized dogs with short, coarse coats and moderate to heavy shedding. The Beagle Point is an energetic, courageous dog that enjoys spending time with its owners. Beagle Points tend to bark and will need early socialization and obedience training. A loving, fun-loving companion, the Beagle Point is no couch potato and requires daily exercise.

History of the Beagle Point

The Beagle Point is a modern hybrid and has little documented history. They are thought to have originated in the USA within the last 20 years.
        

A little of the Beagle

        
Beagle-type dogs have been around for over 2,500 years. The modern breed originated in Great Britain around the 1800's. They were bred to be scent dogs and to track rabbits. These Beagles were much smaller than today's Beagles and could fit in the hunter's pocket. The Beagle began to be imported into the USA in the 1860s and was accepted as a breed by the American Kennel Club in 1885. In March 2017, the American Kennel Club ranked the Beagle breed in the top 10 popular breeds. Queen Elizabeth I owned pocket Beagles and US President Lyndon Johnson owned two Beagles, named Him and Her. The US government began training Beagles in 1984. Because of their keen scent, they patrol airports, seaports, cargo facilities and border entry points. They can prevent contraband food, plants and narcotics from entering the United States.

A little of the English Pointer

The history of the English Pointer dates back to 1650 in England. It is thought that the English Pointer breed was developed by crossing Greyhounds, Foxhounds, Bloodhounds and Bull Terriers. The English Pointer was bred to be a hunting dog and to point at birds and small game. The English Pointer first entered a Westminster Kennel Club dog show in 1877. In the United States, English Pointers date back to the Civil War period. They are thought to have been introduced to the USA by English owners. Today, in the southern states, the English Pointer is known as the bird dog. The American Kennel Club recognized the English Pointer in 1884 as a member of its sporting group.

Appearance of the Beagle Point

Due to cross-breeding, the exact appearance of the Beagle Point is difficult to say with certainty, as traits can vary even within the same litter. He will be a medium-sized, athletic dog with a short coat. He will weigh between 18 and 27 kilos. The Beagle Point's short coat is often tricolored (beige, black and white). It can also be white with brown patches. Its muzzle is long, and Beagle Point ears are soft and hanging. His adoring eyes will be round and brown. Beagle Point feet are medium-sized, rounded and featherless.

Temperament of the Beagle Point

The Beagle Point will have the personality and character traits of both its parents. It will be a very energetic, fun-loving and loyal companion. He'll love being part of his family's life. They can be a little stubborn and should have early obedience training and socialization. They can suffer from separation anxiety, which can cause behavioral problems such as excessive barking and a tendency to become destructive. The Beagle Point is a friendly, even-tempered dog that loves to play with children, although small children should always be supervised when playing with any dog. The Beagle Point is a good dog for an active family who won't mind its exuberance and need to be on the move.

Needs and activities of the Beagle Point

The Beagle Point will need daily walks, exercise and activities to keep it from getting bored. They're not happy if they're inactive for long periods, so make a suggestion and this hybrid will be eager to join you. The Beagle Point loves to join its owners on hikes, runs in the park or jogs on the trail. His English Pointer side makes him a fast runner, although his Beagle side makes him a tracker, so leash activities are a must, or he can take off on a scent. This hybrid is not intended for apartment living. The Beagle Point needs a large, fenced-in yard where it can explore, run and play.

Maintenance of the Beagle Point

The Beagle Point has a short coat, which requires very little care. Because they are excretors, they will need weekly combing and brushing. Bathing can be done as needed. Their floppy ears should be cleaned with earwash every week, but make sure no moisture remains inside after cleaning. Excessive growth of yeast and bacteria can easily become a problem. To prevent tartar build-up, teeth should be brushed twice a week. Nails should be trimmed monthly, watching out for tears or breaks between trims. An active dog like this can also have its pads trimmed, so if it's limping, the paws should be one of the first places to check.
