A cross between the Beagle and Boston Terrier, the Boglen Terrier has two of the most popular breeds in the United States as parents. Although one parent is a terrier and one is a hound, both were still used as companions for avid hunters. The Beagle, believed to be a smaller version of the English Foxhound, was thought to have been developed in England during the late-1400s to be used for catching rabbits and hare, while the Boston Terrier originated in the United States where they served as hunting companions in addition to participating in the illegal sports of dog fighting and bull-baiting. Regardless of their different backgrounds, the Boglen Terrier's parents are two recognizable breeds that are loved for their great temperaments and entertaining personalities.
The Boglen Terrier can have a range of characteristics due to the vastly different appearances between the long-earred Beagle and bulldog-like Boston Terrier. This hybrid has a small, compact, muscular body with large floppy ears. Like their parents, Boglen Terriers have a square-shaped muzzle, long legs, and a short and smooth coat that requires little-to-no maintenance. Since the Boglen Terrier is a cross between two different parent breeds, they will inherit physical traits from both the Beagle and Boston Terrier. Some dogs may have more of a Beagle appearance while some may have more Boston Terrier features.
