Temperament & Intelligence of the Beagle Pit Bull Mix

Examining the temperaments of the Beagle and the American Pit Bull Terrier can help us understand the personality of the Beagle Pit. Beagles are renowned for their merry and happy natures and have a history as hunting dogs used in a pack. They have a high prey drive and can be single-minded when they catch an interesting scent.

You can’t write about the Pit Bull without mentioning the controversy. The debate around their aggression is misplaced because Pit Bulls are some of the most loving dogs you’ll ever meet. Any dog can be aggressive because of how they are trained and treated. Beagle Pits come from two very smart, sweet, and active dogs, so you can expect many of the same qualities in these dogs.

Are These Dogs Good for Families? 🧑‍🧑‍🧒

Both the Beagle and the Pit Bull are known for being family-friendly, so the Beagle Pit should be no different. Pit Bulls and Beagles also get along with children and are patient and loving. However, Beagle Pits can be protective of their family and need socialization to help them get along with strangers. They do well with children of all ages, but young children need to be supervised around any dog at all times and should be educated on how to treat dogs.

Does This Breed Get Along With Other Pets? 

The Beagle is a pack dog who gets along quite well with other dogs but also tends to chase after smaller animals. If socialized well as a puppy, the Pit Bull will get along with other animals well and is only aggressive if improperly trained.

The Beagle Pit should get along well with other pets as long as they’re well-socialized at an early age.

Things to Know When Owning a Beagle Pit Bull Mix:

Food & Diet Requirements 🦴

The Beagle Pit is a muscular, medium-sized dog that should be given high-quality dog food formulated for their activity level and size. Usually, about 3 cups a day is the average amount for the Beagle Pit, but you can also follow the instructions on your dog’s food bag to figure out the right amount. They need enough food to help support their high energy levels, but you can talk to your vet if you have any concerns about your Beagle Pit’s health and weight.

Exercise 🐕

As already discussed, the Beagle Pit comes from two very energetic parents who require a minimum of an hour of exercise every day. You can expect the same with the Beagle Pit. Both the Beagle and the Pit Bull will not do well if left alone, so be sure to spend a lot of time walking and playing with them. Because of the Beagle parent, the Beagle Pit should also always be on a leash unless they’re running around in a fenced-in yard.

Training 🦮

Beagle Pits are smart and eager to please their owners, so training will go somewhat smoothly. There can be moments of stubbornness and hard-headed behavior, but the Beagle Pit is quite food-motivated, so using lots of treats with consistent and patient training methods should work well.

Grooming ✂️

Beagle Pits have short, smooth coats that only need brushing about once a week, usually with a slicker brush or comb. Because of their Beagle heritage, they might be prone to shedding. You can give your pup a bath with a good dog shampoo no more than once a month or just when it seems necessary.

Their nails should be trimmed about every 3 to 4 weeks, their teeth must be brushed two to three times a week, and it’s best to clean your pup’s ears every week, particularly if they’re long and droopy.

Health and Conditions ❤️

The Beagle and the Pit Bull are purebreds and are more susceptible to certain health conditions. The Beagle Pit isn’t as likely to inherit these conditions, but it is always best to screen for the same health issues that can affect their parents.

The Beagle is prone to:
The American Pit Bull Terrier might experience:

Your vet will check the Beagle Pit’s eyes, ears, and skin for any issues and will have you keep a close eye on your pup.

Your vet will check the Beagle Pit’s hips and knees and complete a full physical exam, including urinalysis and blood tests.

Male vs Female

The Beagle Pit averages 18 to 20 inches tall and weighs 30 to 40 pounds, but you can expect the female to be shorter and lighter. As a dog owner, you’ll need to pay for neutering or spaying surgery for your pup. Spaying the female is more expensive since it is a more complicated surgery than neutering the male. However, it can help your Beagle Pit live a longer life and can assist with eliminating aggressive tendencies.

Finally, there can be differences in temperament between male and female dogs, but the true test of personality comes from the dog’s training and socialization. You can have a look at some of the differences between female and male dogs here.
