Species group:

Other name(s): Border Beagle

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Border Beagle is a cross between a pure Border Collie and a pure Beagle, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. While the traits inherited by a mixed breed are never guaranteed, the intelligence of both parent breeds and the Beagle's eagerness to play can result in a dog that loves to learn and perform in events such as agility competitions. Both parent breeds are high energy, and this mix is likely to be happiest with active, outdoorsy owners.

Appearance / health:
The Border Beagle is a mix between a hound and a herding dog and, as such, its appearance can vary quite a bit depending on which traits dominate. You should expect a higher-energy animal.

Behavior / temperament:
While the personality of a mixed breed is never entirely predictable, with Border Collie and Beagle in the mix, you can expect a highly intelligent animal with lots of energy that should be channeled into early and frequent training. The hound side could result in a dog that is tempted to give chase, and the collie traits may result in a somewhat independent-minded animal. Know how to be consistent but kind and use positive reinforcement.

Good for yeast otitis & routine maintenance

I use tons of this for yeast otitis in dogs. Sometimes add a steroid and/or antibiotic. Very effective in my experience.
