Bailey is a 2 1/2 year old beagle. We constantly get asked what he is mixed with. He was sold to us as a beagle however the breeder wasn’t registered and we never saw his parents. Silly of us, I know! I posted here when he was only a little puppy and everyone seemed to think all beagle but for the past 2 years nearly every chat I have with anyone about Bailey they ask what he is mixed with!
We live in Australia where most beagles we have seen look similar to this:
We go to regular beagle meet ups and he definitely looks different. They seem to have a bit of a different face and much shorter legs and smaller in general to Bailey. Bailey seems to be a little taller than most with longer legs and a longer snout. He acts totally beagle though always with his nose on the ground and he has a typical beagle howl. He weighs about 19/20kg which I believe is heavier than recommended despite daily walks and being on a “healthy weight/diet” kibble.
Based on my googling I have thought beAgle x harrier based on photos I have seen. However I have never seen a harrier in real life and they are definitely not a popular breed here so it might be unlikely.
He is a beautiful boy no matter what he is but I do wonder... What do you guys think?
