Facts & Origin
Sceagle (Beagle and Scottish Terrier Mix)
The Sceagle is a charming mixed breed created by crossing a Beagle and a Scottish Terrier. The Beagle, known for its friendly character and excellent nose, meets the headstrong and courageous Scottish Terrier - the result is an energetic, bright four-legged friend with a personality all its own.
Suitability and attitude
Sceagles can adapt well to a variety of living situations and are suitable for life in both an apartment and a house with a garden. However, they do need daily exercise and mental stimulation to manage their energy levels. With their intelligent and outgoing nature, they are excellent for various types of dog sports. Their friendly and adaptable nature also makes them good family dogs, although their partially independent nature makes them best suited to families with older children.
