Beagles are sought after for their even temperament and skills and have been crossed with a wide variety of other dogs to produce some interesting beagle mixes.
It has become common practice to take two types of dogs and cross them to get the best of both breeds. They are recognized as hybrids only if they are bred from two thoroughbred or purebred dogs. The endless combinations of dogs bred in this way have become known as designer dogs. The only thing stranger than the product of such mixes must be the names that people concoct for them.
