The Pomeagle is a small-statured, cute, designer breed developed by crossing the Beagle and Pomeranian. They may have a furry look similar to their Pomeranian parent or be smooth-coated as the Beagle. It is natural for them to inherit physical attributes from both their parents or be highly inclined to any one of them. In fact, a Pomeagle with a strong Beagle influence might possess soft, hanging ears, a square muzzle, and a white-tipped tail. On the other hand, those displaying more of the Pomeranian’s features may be spotted with a wedge-shaped head as well as erect ears. Their high energy levels, intelligence and loyalty make them a preferred pet choice.

Inheriting the intelligence of both parents, the Pomeagle emerge as perfect show and companion dogs. They are immensely loyal to their owners as well as the family they belong. It is advised not to keep your pet alone for a longer time span as their strong attachment towards their masters may result in pangs of separation anxiety just as their parents. Most of them seem to follow the footsteps of their Pomeranian, regarding displaying excellent watchdog skills, barking to alert their owners at the sight of an unfamiliar face. They get along quite well with children though parental supervision is required to ensure that the little ones do not manhandle these small dogs. Some of them might also possess the chasing and hunting instinct of the Beagle, thus, if you have noncanine pets at home make arrangements for their protection.
These smart, witty dogs are easy to train, requiring a firm and patient master who can work towards enhancing their personality in a positive way. They might acquire the Small dog syndrome of the Pomeranians, thus, it is essential for trainers to teach the Pomeagle puppies to mingle well with dogs greater than their size instead of being aggressive towards them. Rather than adopting harsh methods, owners should try the positive reinforcement technique to make the training process enjoyable and fulfilling.
This breed needs three-fourth to one and a half cup of dry dog food on a daily basis. Make sure to include sufficient amount of fiber and fat in their diet without running at the risk of overfeeding them.
