They are an excellent choice for a pet owner looking for a dog that is loyal, adaptable and friendly. Common nicknames for this mixed breed include Beaschund, Doxie, and Beagle Dachshund Mix.

The breed’s coat can be fine, harsh and rough or wire. Adults have a height of between 9 and 11 inches and weigh between 20-30 pounds.

Temperament and Behavior
In a nutshell, the Doxle is alert, intelligent, energetic, playful, social, gentle, friendly, loving and loyal. These dogs love their families and make good pets. They are also polite and patient, and, therefore, good with children and quite friendly to other pets.
With its curiosity, loyalty, alertness, and a remarkable sense of smell, a Doxle can also watch over your household.
The breed is also intelligent but can be obstinate from time to time. Early socialization and training are, therefore, crucial. Regular exercise is also necessary to reduce the dog’s tendency to dig, an instinct from its Dachshund parent.
No breed specific health concerns have been recorded. To protect your dog from genetic and general dog diseases, maintain health and hygiene guidelines. Common health problems for the parents are hip dysplasia and hypothyroidism for the Beagle and intervertebral disk disease and hypothyroidism for the Dachshund.
