Today’s animal of the day is the Meagle, a designer cross between the purebred Miniature Pinscher (commonly referred to as a Min Pin) and the Beagle (a small hound dog). Meagles are sociable, family-oriented dogs that thrive on attention and are naturally inquisitive.
- The Meagle Is a member of the Canidae family.
- The breed is classified as a Mammalia animal.
- They range in size from 12 to 16 inches (30.5-40.6 cm). They are half the size of Scottish deerhounds.
- Meagles are small in stature. Their weight ranges between 10 and 25 pounds (4.5–11.3 kg).
- Meagles are generally bred by skilled breeders or in owners’ homes. They are a designer dog breed mix.
- Their large floppy ears, petite muzzles, and athletic bodies make them adorable. And they have an excellent sense of smell. These quirks contribute to their charm.
- Meaglels have a highly developed sense of smell and are unafraid to use it to scrutinize anything.
- They are devoted to their owners. Strangers might be wary of them, but they are very affectionate and kind towards their families. The Meagle’s progenitor breeds were renowned as hunting dogs, so the presence of tiny animals like rats or rabbits might be a concern.
- They live for between 10 and 15 years. Hybrid dogs are often fit and healthy.
- They are simple to teach. Though they are not the fastest, they are not the slowest either. Training these dogs might be tough for new owners due to their independent personalities.
