lol, I thought there are not so big as yours

But it turns out that even beagles come in different sizes, and such large ones reach prices up to $ 6,000 based on How much are boggle puppies? - SV OG and I need to say that im really shocked сause I live with my doggy for 5 years and I always thought that all of them are the same:)
Here in the US, these mixed breed dogs are called "designer" dogs. Some breeders are looking at the DNA traits and breeding in certain traits and breeding out others. So the boogles (poodle/beagle) mixes typically are trying to get the hair from the poodle as beagles are big shedders and poodles are not (reason labradoodles and goldendoodles are becoming so popular here). It takes several generations to breed out a characteristic. So far, for the American Kennel Club, they are still considered a mixed breed and have no recognition as a breed but many designer advocates are trying to get the accepted. I think advocates are having better luck with the United Kennel Club (a different club in the US). After all, pugs and bulldogs were once other dogs who were bred for short legs and smushed faces and now they are considered a purebred breed of their own by AKC. As long as the dog is loved and cared for, that's what's important!
