The mix between a purebred beagle and a purebred schnauzer is called a schneagle. Because it is considered a hybrid breed, this dog is not recognized by the American Kennel Club. They grow to be 7 to 15 pounds and live 12 to 15 years on average.
The schneagle typically has the soft, floppy ears of a beagle and the wiry, tri-colored coat of the schnauzer, which sheds slightly. The schneagle is a small dog that weighs 7 to 15 pounds when fully grown. This dog is loving and friendly, but may not be good with small children because it has a tendency to bite and snap. The life expectancy for this hybrid is 12 to 15 years.
