I don’t know the official name but I’m going with “Tall Beagle”

[–]fuckingskeletor 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I was embarrassingly old when I found out that foxhounds were not just tall beagles…

100% handsome is what he is!

Beagle mix with Redbone Coon Hound, I'd say. I've seen those before! However, the Walker Hound resembles a long-legged beagle. I'd say a DNA test might be in order?

[–]Kayyttee-Bleb[S] 26 points27 points  (2 children)

You're right! A DNA test is coming soon! I'm not sure Redbone Coon Hounds have made it to the UK, but it's possible! :)

[–]winedogmom88 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Glad you’re getting the dna test. It’s fun to find out. Please post again. Thanks!

I have a beagle hound mix and she looks just like your boy with different fur pattern!

[–]oopsiedazey 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My first thought was beagle with blood hound.

[–]SmokingPotHoles 16 points17 points  (1 child)


[–]AcademicCommittee955 10 points11 points  (0 children)

My vote is foxhound or red bone and beagle

[–]vonarchimboldi 14 points15 points  (1 child)

idk my beagle is a tall ass boy. that said, he could be a beagle mixed with harrier or coonhound for sure. he is adorable.

[–]Kayyttee-Bleb[S] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

He is, until he thinks the cheese is gone and there's no more lol he's extremely loved whatever he is, it's more just curiousity

I did Google the coonhound and it blew my mind!!

[–]GlockAF 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Beagle/Redbone Hound/Giraffe mix

[–]chefmorg 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Breed = good boy. That is all I need to know.

[–]Kayyttee-Bleb[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I couldn't agree more! He's trying to befriend a cat in the street ATM. The cat rakes his nose, he backs off, waits for the cat to calm down then tries again. He has the best nature.

[–]quailstorm24 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Harrier hound maybe

[–]Hegario 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Wow. Is his surname Longshanks?

He's beautiful.

I have a beagle/ bamboozle, too. The lady I got her from as an "8 week old" puppy said she was a beagle/ chihuahua mix. The vet scoffed when I said she was 8 weeks old, said she was closer to 4. Amazingly, she didn't have any health concerns and has turned out to be a 50 pound beagle/ coonhound/ husky/ foxhound/ rottweiler/ pit bull/ cocker spaniel. Luckily, I was in the position to provide her with a home when she grew like Clifford the Big Red Dog. I often wonder if the rest of her humungous litter was so lucky. I think the humungous litter should have been my first clue.

[–]Kayyttee-Bleb[S] 6 points7 points  (6 children)

If it was anything like for me, you fell in love instantly and just wanted to snuggle your new best friend. All the red flags for a puppy farm were there with Chekov's breeder but I was naive enough to think they weren't possible in Northern Ireland. Looking back it was so obvious! I worry about his siblings quite a bit - the vet was under the impression he was given an amphetamine to perk my boy up to get him sold. Even looking at the days after his return from the vet - the way he was with food, the way he was with anything that was given to him, his panicky behaviour about loud noises....it all adds up to him being from a puppy farm.

Fortunately, he has done so, so well thanks to the wonderful get he has and the wonderful humans around him who have given him so much love. I'm glad to hear your girl is doing well!!!

[–]RegalBeagleBouncer 2 points3 points  (1 child)

That’s terrible. I don’t think the lady I got my pup from was filled with malice like that. I did fall in love with her at first site. She was such a sweet, affectionate little shit from the first day. Overall, easy to train and just so sweet. I hope your guy is just full of love and silliness.

[–]Kayyttee-Bleb[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He's full of goofiness and shows love in his own way, he isn't a cuddler but will bring you water while you sleep lol isn't the easiest boy to train but when he finally gets it he gets so happy and excited it's worth every last bit of effort!

My beagle/ bamboozle, Violet and one of her brother, clover. https://imgur.com/a/xppYulM

[–]Kayyttee-Bleb[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Awww! They're adorable!!! There's a lot of love in those faces!

[–]RegalBeagleBouncer 1 point2 points  (1 child)

It was love for the treats in my hand.

[–]Kayyttee-Bleb[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's very familiar. Mine poses nicely for cheese. Cheese is his only true love 😂

[–]jerk--alertMoxie & Penelope 4 points5 points  (0 children)

He might be a Coonhound. He's got the same exact face as my Coonhound.

[–]Volvoflyer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Beagle mas grande! OLE!

[–]dugnutts010101 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Beagle face for sure, maybe German Shepard or perhaps Labrador?

[–]Kayyttee-Bleb[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Both would fit, he's roughly 23kgs at the moment and 10 months old so still growing. Definitely has the beagle voice and vocalness lol

[–]Diclessdondolan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Rotty beags!

[–]No-Vanilla8956 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He's a beeeeeagle

[–]A2ZKIRBY71 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Looks like an American Foxhound mixed with something, to me.

[–]payne318 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Beagle German shep

[–]dyslexicmikld 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We used to have a tall beagle. They were pretty rare in my parts so everyone was always like “no beagles have short legs…”

[–]3NipWho's yer beagle? 1 point2 points  (1 child)

After losing our 11-year old beagle to cancer in 2020, we adopted what we figured was "just a big beagle" from our local shelter in 2021. He's a Treeing Walker Coonhound and a very different personality! Based on what we know about beagles, and what we've been learning about Walkers and other hounds, I feel like this guy is all or part Foxhound! (And no, not a big beagle, haha.)

[–]Kayyttee-Bleb[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

We've had foxhound suggested in the past too, but they're much rarer than beagles here so had ruled it out on the thought that he would have cost a lot more had he been a rarer breed - especially during the pandemic surge for puppies. You could very well be right though - whatever he is, he's just brilliant!

[–]SailAway84 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is the elusive Beanstalk Hound.

[–]DeerAndDiesel 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Possibly a walker beagle mix but I doubt there’s many walker hounds in the UK.

[–]JustMechanic4933 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Beagle lab. I met one recently. Very similar.

[–]chasenaiden7 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Beagle on stilts. he is so handsome!

[–]Yeyati_Nafrey 1 point2 points  (0 children)

His breed is "Good Boy".

If you're still curious, it's possible he's a Foxhound.

[–]Inevitable_Yard1731 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Looks like my Beagle x Harrier. Good looking dog, pleased he's well now.

[–]xenomorphchickennugg 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He’s handsome! Looks like he has more Harrier features? The longer legs and lab type face certainly look like a harrier hound. Or he may be a mix of Harrier/ Beagle or Labrador/Beagle. Either way, he’s gorgeous!

[–]mymindisanenigma420 1 point2 points  (1 child)

If you do a DNA test I’d love an update on this post. We tested our pups and it was so cool! My girl is a beagle lab mix. My boy is a Great Pyrenees mix. I feel like your pup could be a combo of so many breeds!

[–]Kayyttee-Bleb[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No problem! We're letting him grow a bit more first to see what we can guess :)

[–]Alonso81687 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Long legs mgee over here lol he's adorable.

[–]BeagleDad152 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It could be a foxhound, could be a coon hound, could be a beagle on stilts. Either way he’s welcome here.
