A brief presentation of the Beaski

The Beaski may have a scary name, but it's one of the most adorable and gentle breeds around. That's because their parent breeds, the Beagle and the Siberian Husky, are both very loving dogs. However, it's hard to say which breed they'll resemble more, as they can go either way. Some look like little Siberian Huskies, others like big Beagles. Either way, they're easy to train, loyal, laid-back and make excellent pets, although you need to socialize them early so they can get on well with other pets and children.

History of the Beaski

Similar to most specific crossbreed dogs, the origins of this breed are unknown. This breed was probably created around the time when most specific cross breeds appeared, the 90s and early 2000s. Looking at the breed's history, it was likely that this mix produced a dog with a harder, stronger work ethic, although they were mainly bred as companion dogs. The Beaski is a relatively new breed and hasn't been studied in depth like their purebred relatives, but this breed is still popular enough to get an idea of temperament.
        

A little of the Beagle

        
The Beagle has been around since the 1300s, according to most experts. However, some say they existed in the 5th century when dogs of similar size were used for hunting in Greece. The first Beagles were called Pocket Beagles because they were only about 20 centimetres long, and hunters kept them in their pockets in case of need. But, because of their small size, they disappeared when hunters opted to use larger dogs capable of carrying more. The modern Beagle you see today originated in England from the Southern Hound, the North Country Beagle, the Talbot Hound and possibly the Harrier. The Beagle is known as President Lyndon B. Johnson's White House dog. Johnson's dog at the White House, and also became famous as Charlie Brown's dog, Snoopy. In 1885, the Beagle was officially recognized by the American Kennel Club and is the 5th most popular dog breed in America.

A little of the Siberian Husky

The Siberian Husky takes its name from its origins in Siberia. They were developed by an ancient Russian tribe, the Chukchi people, who used them to hunt and pull their sleds. In the 1900s, the breed was brought to Alaska and competed in the All Alaska Sweepstakes, which they won. They continued to win until the games were cancelled due to the First World War. In 1925, the Siberian Husky made a name for himself by saving thousands of people in a town called Nome by delivering serum during the diphtheria epidemic. It took over 100 dogs to make the 1,060-kilometer journey to get the medicine from Nulato and back to Nome, and it was done in record time. In 1930, they were accepted by the American Kennel Club and are the 12th most popular breed.

Appearance of the Beaski

Your Beaski's eyes may be brown, amber, hazel or even blue like the Siberian Husky, and their nose may be black or brown. They generally have soft triangular ears and a medium-sized muzzle on a rounded head. They are sturdy, with muscular, big-boned legs and a long torso. Their tails are generally long and curl over their backs. They are medium-sized and have a short, soft coat that can be any color, including black, gray, brown, red, cream, fawn, white, pied, sable or brindle. They are rarely a single solid color, and most are tricolored.

Temperament of the Beaski

The Beaski is one of the friendliest, most easy-going dogs around. They're also incredibly intelligent. Because both parent breeds are bred to work with teams of other dogs, it's in their genes to get along well with others, and they also love children. However, you should always supervise your dog with a small child, and keep an eye on him with small animals such as cats with whom he hasn't been raised. They have tons of energy and love to work as well as play. The Beaski is affectionate and cuddly with a low level of aggression, but can also make good watchdogs if properly trained.

Needs and activities of the Beaski

Because Beagles and Siberian Huskies are both working dogs, they need plenty of vigorous exercise every day. If you don't have them working, you should take them for at least two long walks a day and let them play outside for at least an hour to 90 minutes. You can take them to a dog park to run with other dogs, into the woods to hike, or into your own yard to play chase. As long as they're able to get out and run freely for at least 60 minutes a day. If they don't get enough exercise, they can become anxious and bored.

Maintenance of the Beaski

Your Beaski's grooming needs may vary, depending on the type of coat they end up with. If they have the longer Husky coat, they may shed more and will need to be brushed with a pin brush several times a week. However, with a Beagle coat, you may simply need to brush them with a smooth brush once or twice a week. They don't need to be bathed often, only when necessary, as this will dry out their skin. However, you should clean their ears once a week and check them for mites, wax build-up and irritation. You should also trim their nails if necessary and brush their teeth once a week to prevent tooth decay.
