History: The Peagle breed is a crossbreed between a purebred Beagle and Pekingese. The breed originated in the United States but the year of origin is not known. What we know about this breed comes from its parents. 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 breed. The Beagle was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1884. The Pekingese breed originates from the Orient and is named after the capital city of Peking. Pekingese dogs belonged to the imperial family only. During the Opium War of 1860, British troops procured the dog after storming the imperial palace. Five dogs were taken to England, one of which became Queen Victoria’s dog. In the early 1900s, the Pekingese made its way to the United States. It was accepted by the American Kennel Club in 1904.
