The Beagi is a designer dog, created by crossing the Beagle and the Pembroke or Cardigan Welsh Corgi. Having a unique appearance, highly inspired by the physical features of both parents, these dogs have dark brown eyes that are round in shape, drooping ears resembling that of a Beagle as well as a long tail which might slightly curl in an upward direction. However, their tail remains straight and erect when they are attentively concentrating on a particular thing, another trait obtained from their Beagle parent. Those who are more genetically inclined to the Corgi might display white stripes running from the nose and eyes to their forehead.

Having a pleasing and friendly disposition, the Beagi has inherited its intelligence from both parents. They show a great deal of loyalty to their family, always eager to please their master in every possible way. These amicable dogs share a strong rapport with children, elderly people, as well as other family members, being immensely protective about them just like the Corgi. Just like their parents, they too might be cautious when unknown people are around, which can be overcome with a proper upbringing. In the company of any strange or unfamiliar animal they can get very protective and territorial.
The strong hunting and smelling instincts of their parents inherent in them, make them avid participators in agility and tracking activities. They are ideal family pets owing to their lively nature and high energy levels.
You might spot the stubbornness of a Beagle or Corgi in this breed. Thus, a firm but patient trainer is required to develop its personality in a proper way through positive reinforcement rather than implementing harsh techniques. Socialization and obedience training should be given to Beagi puppies to help them get along well with people and all pets. You may even leash train them to keep them in control when taken outdoors. Groom them well if you want them to take part in agility sports.
They are to be given about three-fourth to one and a half cup of dry dog food every day. Apart from this make sure their diet comprises of essential nutrients required to keep them healthy, though overfeeding will make them obese, increasing their chances of suffering from several diseases.
