Cheagle Breed Summary
Out-going, Sociable, Friendly, Energetic and Intelligent
These dogs are an extremely popular hybrid breed, and are cross between the Beagle, from England and the Chihuahua, from Mexico! The mix between the two breeds resulted in a very playful and affectionate dog, with a real love for 'hoomans'.
They are a very small breed so are probably more Chihuahua-like in nature, as opposed to being big on hunting and tracking prey! They are also fairly low maintenance, both in the exercise and grooming department!
Fun Fact: They get along very well with children!

These dogs are the pups of very out-going parents, so it’s no surprise that they are equally as bold! This means that they are very social and require a lot of attention and love from their ‘hoomans’. They are also an extremely friendly cross breed and never seem to have a bad day. The Chihuahua aspect of this breed also allows for a potentially excellent watchdog as they are highly alert and prone to barking if they see something that appears strange or unusual. Because these dogs can get fairly excited, they must be trained to control their hyperactive energy levels!
These little cuties are a relatively new ‘designer breed’ and are a cross between a Chihuahua and a Beagle. They have since become an increasingly popular breed choice due to their loving personalities and their small size, which makes them the perfect type of dog for apartment or small home living. They are not as yet a breed recognised by the Kennel Club but are recognised by both the International Designer Canine Registry, as well as the Designer Breed Registry. As they are such a new breed, puppies will vary from litter to litter and may develop different traits and physical characteristics from their parents.
