History: The Beaglier breed was developed in Australia during the 1990’s. Breeders were looking for a happy balance between two popular dogs: Beagles and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. The goal was to create a small, healthy, energetic pup with a less active scent drive than a Beagle. That is how the sweet Beaglier breed was created. To this day, that good-natured temperament is what keeps the breed popular in Australia.
