Beagle Labrador Mix Description:
The Beagle Lab mix is a common crossbreed dog between a Beagle and a Labrador and is also known as the Labbe, Beagador, Labeagle and Labbe Retriever. This high energy ‘designer’ dog first originated from the US and its popularity quickly spread throughout the world due to its fun-loving nature. The typical Beagle Labrador mix takes after both its parents in appearance and has the head of the Beagle with its tricolor coat with the colors of the Labrador. The Labbe’s body tends to resemble that of the Beagle in height but it is slightly longer in length. Its coat is very short and it has a sleek appearance which it inherits from the Labrador side.

Beagle Labrador mix temperament:
This dog is a lovable dog that is fiercely loyal and protective. Both the Beagle and the Labrador are intelligent dogs that are easily trained and the Labbe is no different. This is a playful dog which is perfect with children as they are gentle and sweet. It has an outgoing personality and likes attention. This dog is in its element when in the outdoors and with its great curiosity it likes to explore. This dog adapts well, however, it is wary of strangers and will bark when a stranger approaches the home which makes it an excellent watchdog.

Labbe size:Beagle Labrador Mix
This dog is of medium size, slightly bigger than the Beagle but smaller than the Labrador. It can be anywhere between 19-24 inches (48.2-60.9cm) in height and 25-40lbs (11.3-18.2kg) in weight.

Labrador Beagle mix health problems:
Both parents of the Labbe are prone to seizures and hip dysplasia and it is possible that the Labbe puppy will inherit these traits, however, being crossbred they have a lower chance of suffering from major health related problems.

Living conditions:
The Labbe is a medium sized dog that likes to chew when it’s bored therefore keeping it in the confined spaces of an apartment is not recommended. This dog needs an enclosed yard to play in. Owners must make sure that the fencing is of a good quality as this dog likes to dig and can easily dig its way under a fence. If there is a kennel it is fine to keep this dog as an outdoor pet but it needs sufficient bedding to keep the dog warm in the winter months.

Labbe exercise:
The Labbe, just like the Labrador, is full of energy and it needs a lot of daily exercise to keep it healthy and out of mischief. This dog generally loves the water like the Labrador and a good workout for it could be a swim in the river. The Labbe is an intelligent dog which likes to play games so it is also recommended to play Frisbee or fetch with the dog.

Beagle Labrador Mix Labrador Beagle mix grooming:
This dog has a very short coat so it only needs to be brushed once a week to keep it looking shiny and healthy. Its nails tend to grow long just like the Labradors and it is advised to have them professionally clipped or to exercise them on concrete to help wear them down.

Suitability:
This dog needs a lot of activity so it is suitable for families who have time and like the outdoors. Additionally, both the Beagle and the Labrador are good at tracking therefore the Labbe also makes a good hunting dog.

  1. This is the best possible breed to own. They are the perfect size for a house or an apartment (35 lb). They are adorable – they look like a puppy well into old age. They have few health issues and live forever (mine is 17 and healthier than most 8 year old dogs). They are happy. I mean they are really happy all the time. They are super sweet and loyal. They love to cuddle. They are easily trainable but if you are laid back their temperament means they know what lines not to cross. They are too intelligent for their own good (my dog has figured out how to use a lever to open doors and how to get onto the kitchen counter when a chair and stool were left too close together). They are easy to play with – they pick games up easily and have tons of fun. They are good with people. My dog has never shown aggression. They will let you do whatever you want to them. I sing loudly in my dogs face (as part of our usual games) and she loves it. The only draw back is that they are very attached to their people. My dog can be left alone for up to 15 hours with no problem. But that is not something I would do often (only in emergencies). They will sit on you if you are doing sit-ups or yoga (it happens every time I forget to shut the door). They like to be around people and I work from home most days (3 days a week). If you are home they will follow you everywhere. They will not sleep in another room without a fight (that you will lose). They will lay one the bath mat while you bath. They will cry if you leave them in another room.

  2. I have a female who is super sweet that I Love so much she is a rescue. She is as smart as a whip I would not trade her for anything!!!
