What breed of dog are you partial to? Is there a breed that you would love to have?

Posted by   + Show Post

We always had Old English Sheepdogs. I love them but grooming is time consuming. It is worth it though.

I don't have a dog right now. I would LOVE to have a Bull Terrier.

The "pocket beagle" the woman is holding in the video looks like it is mixed with Chihuahua. "Downsizing" a breed means to breed it with a smaller breed many generations until you can breed those two breeds together and make that breed it's own breed in a sense, such as the American Pit Bull Terrier was bred from many various breeds together until they could breed only these breeds together, many dog generations of work, possibly a few human generations as well. Naturally, there is no such thing as a pocket beagle. What this woman appears to be doing is mixing 2 beagles with possibly 2 Chihuahuas and then breeding the product from those 2 litters etc.... That would give a smaller beagle but it wouldn't be a purebred beagle to start with and never will be a purebred beagle, it will always be a mix beagle but it can eventually become its own breed, though it would never be a true beagle.

Quoting cshepard: can't make it clicky but there's a website that sells them

Quoting TigressLily:

No such thing as a pocket beagle... there's only the 13 and 15 inch beagles.

Quoting cshepard:

My wording was wrong, a pocket beagle

Quoting AliKatAK47:

There is no such thing as a mini Beagle.

Quoting cshepard:

I want a beagle, specifically a mini beagle. Adorable!
