History: The Beabull breed originated in the United States of America but there is no documentation on how the mix came to be. Made up of genetics from English Bull Dogs and Beagles, Beabull are described as gentle, trusted yet courageous. Beagles were established in Roman times, billed as hunting dogs in the mid-1800’s. Their keen sense of smell and laser focus energy earned them the reputation of being a trusted bread. The Bulldog made its breed debut in England in 1835. During his time, they were used in sports to bait bears and bulls. After that sport was banned, dog fights were on the rise until the people of England realized the use of animals for fighting purposes only was inhumane. Making the move to America, Bulldogs were used to guard properties and hunt. Now, both Bulldogs and Beagles share calm temperaments, affectionate actions and loyalty to their owners. These traits have been passed down to their hybrid breed, Beabulls.
