The Bagle Hound is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Basset Hound and the Beagle. 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.

Arlo the Bagle Hound at 4 months old—"Arlo has been an amazing puppy so far and I can't wait to see what the future holds with him. He is really sweet, has his moments of being pretty hyper and loves exploring. He also loves to climb. He is very, very social, loves people and other animals, and is very affectionate towards kids. I will say this pup was easier to train then we were expecting with the stories of Beagles being stubborn. He is stubborn but picks up things really fast. He is also incredibly smart."

"A friend found a pregnant Basset Hound and took her to a Basset rescue. We all agreed to take the pups which were half Beagle. I got Buster as a gift for my husband. My husband is a diabetic and as his disease progressed Buster's sense of smell increased. If there's a change in my husband's chemistry Buster will sense it and notify my husband. If my husband passes out Buster will nudge and pull on him to wake him and get him to check his sugar. If he's sick he stays right with him. Buster is an awesome dog who retains the hound characteristics of walking nose down, sniffing the air and chasing rabbits and letting loose a big bark!"

"This is my little Bagle, Zo-Wee, a Beagle and Basset Hound mix. Zo-Wee has more personality than some people I know. This picture shows her at 6 years old. Her colors aren't as pronounced in her face as they were when she was younger. She weighs 28 pounds and has bursts of boundless energy followed by hours of snoozing. She talks about everything and sometimes wears a citronella collar because her enthusiasm can be a bit loud. Throughout her life she's had excellent health, but like Basset Hounds, requires frequent ear cleaning. She's the sweetest dog I've ever known!"

Roy the Bagle (Beagle / Basset Hound mix)—"Roy (a.k.a. No Brainer; Jumbo Frank; Low Rider and Limo [because he's stretched]) is a Cinderella story. This is Roy receiving his Outstanding Achievement Award for attending THIRTY car shows between April, 2011 and April, 2014. The presentation took place at the Horseless Carriage Club of Missouri's 53rd Annual Concours d'Elegance in Forest Park. He was a rescue dog from the Monroe County Humane Society and had been part of an adoption event held at a car show in Columbia, IL. His name was Rory, but my wife had a hard time with the second R so she just called him Roy. He soon took on some appropriate nicknames and has been our mascot for the Take A Kid To A Car Show program started many years ago by SEMA, the Specialty Equipment Market Association in Diamond Bar, CA. The ladies say he is "beautiful" and he sometimes wears an infant T that bears the message "I'm a Chick Magnet". In the past four years, Roy has been to over 40 car shows with my foster grandsons and me. In typical basset manner, he is a lover boy all the way... extremely affectionate and gentle. He loves everyone, especially children. I like to say his two favorite things are cheeseburgers and children."

Roy the Bagle (Beagle / Basset Hound mix)—"TKCS volunteer and foster grandson Luis Hernandez takes a selfie with Roy. One of my all time favorite pictures. It reminds me of the famous quote by Josh Billings, "A dog is the only thing that loves you more than he loves himself".
