The Beabull breed developed when the Beagle and the Bulldog were crossed. Being a combination of two popular dogs with very old history, this new breed is gaining popularity day by day. The beabulls mostly come with bulldog wrinkles and under-bite, while their hanging ears and long muzzles come from their beagle parent.
These are designer dogs that are cute, playful, and hardy. However, it is one of the most unpredictable breed mixes, and the appearance of each of the individuals might vary from the other, depending upon their parents’ genetic contribution. This canid has dark brown to hazel eyes, a strong, lean body with typical hips like the bulldog, while their legs and tails are short, and sometimes docked. They are quite adaptable to apartment life, as also comfortable living in their own kennels, making them a delightful family companion.

Generally, the beabull is a calm, docile, and extremely friendly dog that are dedicated, intelligent, loving, and even-tempered. However, at times, they can as well get incredibly obstinate, a trait that is found in both its parent breeds. Hence, it is quite likely for the puppies to grow up to a stubborn dog.
Beabulls are friendly towards children and other animals, including dogs. With their patience and affection, they can show extreme levels of tolerance of even the most curious and annoying youngsters. Thus, they can easily grow up to a wonderful friend for your kids and other pets. It is natural for this breed to be brimming with loads of zeal and vigor, and this might tend to make them destructive, if you wouldn’t give your pup enough opportunity to burn off its energy.
Beabulls are people dogs that would cherish the company of their masters, following him all day. However, because they are mostly strong-willed and independent-natured, they are not always suited for the nervous or first-time dog owners. Though these dogs do not make good watchdogs, however, if such situations arise, they wouldn’t hesitate to protect its family. They are otherwise mild by temperament and would often be seen enjoying lazy hours, very much like its bulldog parent.
You should also be aware that, beabulls are at their happiest if you would involve them in tasks or games that are challenging and mentally stimulating like simple games of fetching or even hide and seek. Your playful pet will be more than happy to participate, if you would take part in the game, or take your children along with. But do not keep them on the leash when you do so. At the same time, also make sure that your dog’s playground is safe and well-fenced. Alternately, you can also take them to the dog park to help them socialize well.
Training your dog can be difficult. This might not be a good news for first-time owners. They must always be handled with a gentle but firm hand. However, the beabull will briskly respond to most reward-based training techniques. Hence, it is easy for the trainer to abide by such methods. Because these dogs often inherit the willful, stubborn streaks of the bulldog, it is necessary to raise them with calm confidence.
Patience and perseverance can ease the task of training, and is important in giving it adequate training.
Begin socialization training when you adopt your puppy from the breeders or rescue. Other training like crate training, housebreaking (potty) and obedience training are also necessary at an early age. These dogs also tend to play biting games, which must never be entertained, because once you indulge your puppy’s aggressive or hyper play-fighting, nipping, or strong biting, it might not be too safe for you and your family when it grows up to an adult. You can also take professional help from obedience schools.
The recommended quality and quantity of food is similar to other dogs of its size and energy. You should also understand that, very much like their bulldog parents, this dog is a voracious eater. This might lead to obesity. So, resist them from devouring just any sort of food that they get near their mouth. Also, because they mostly have an overbite jaw, feed them from wide, shallow bowls.
