"I was given a year old dog (female) who had been 'living' in a small outdoor run. She was thrown food and water and that was about it. No social interaction with people or dogs except through a fence. Patsy is a Sheltie x Beagle that was not supposed to be. Her Beagle stud father dog escaped his run, climbed into the Sheltie mama's pen and voila! I have thought of calling her a Beashel or Shegle, but prefer introducing her as a Shelbea!?! She looks like a smooth coat Sheltie with funny ears. They don't stand up but are shorter than a beagles. Patsy was absolutely terrified of every thing but is coming around. Though she is still skittish she has already made many doggie friends and is warming up to my housekeeper. She is sweet, sweet, sweet and funny to watch her trying to decide whether to sniff for game or herd my Chihuahuas!!"


The Beagle Sheltie is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Beagle and the Shetland Sheepdog. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
