Doxle

Doxle

INTRODUCTION

The Doxle, a cross between the Dachshund and Beagle dog breeds, is a lovable family watchdog. Affectionate, playful and inquisitive, Doxles combine some of the best characteristics of both parents.Doxles are also known as Beaschunds, Beweenies and Doxies. Despite their “designer breed” status, Doxles can be found in breed-specific rescues and shelters. These sweet puppies would make a great addition to a home where their affection can be reciprocated. They do not like to be left alone for long periods of time. That, plus their high energy level and need for lots of exercise makes them best suited to people who have time in their schedules to be home for a good part of the day. They get along well with other dogs, but because both parent breeds are hunting dogs, it is best not to incorporate smaller animals, especially of prey size.

HIGHLIGHTS

Doxles are mixed breed dogs. There are many colour combinations a Doxle can have, especially as both parents are often a mixture of colours. If your Doxle has a short, smooth coat, a weekly brushing should be sufficient to keep his coat in top condition. Doxles are active dogs and need at least 30 minutes of exercise daily. Experts recommend at least two walks a day, as well as ample playtime.You may want to prepare for their digging instinct by allowing your Doxle a spot in the yard that you wouldn’t mind if it tipped over.Dachshund mixed breed parents have smaller bodies with long spines that make them especially prone to injury, so Doxles would be a better fit for older or gentler children.

HISTORY

It is unclear how long dachshund-eagle mixes have been around, but in general, “designer dogs” have grown in popularity over the last 20 years. Combining their fun and happy personalities seemed an obvious choice when designer dogs became fashionable. Some records indicate that beagles were kept as pets as early as 55 BC and dachshunds as early as 1400 AD. Although the Doxle breed began as a designer breed, some have ended up in shelters or in the care of rescue groups. Consider adoption if you decide this is the breed for you. Check local shelters, look for Doxle rescues, or check with breed-specific dachshund or beagle rescues, as they sometimes take in mixed-breed dogs and find homes for them.
