As with most mixed breed dog, the pit bull beagle hybrid will not be consistent across the board. That is, even though one parent is a purebred beagle and the other a pure pit, the pups (as evidenced from the photos in this article) do not look the same! When you mixed two breeds, the outcome is sort of like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’ll get.

In general however, you can expect a beagle pit to exhibit some of the following qualities:

  • The protective nature of a pit bull
  • Beagle-like loyalty
  • Keen intellect
  • A big personality

However, no dog is perfect. Going from the breed standard of each, the pit bull beagle mix may have a few unique traits that set it apart from other dogs. Some of these qualities could pose unique challenges and may be a make-it-or-break-it deciding factor for some lifestyles and families.

One of the biggest challenges you’ll face with a pit beagle is stubbornness. Both the beagle and the pit bull have a reputation for stubbornness. You’ll want to invest in a dog trainer from the start!
