Full Answer

The German Shepherd Beagle mix has a combination of traits from both breeds, including physical features and personality traits. The idea behind combining both breeds is to create a superior breed that has the best traits from each breed. To create the German Shepherd Beagle mix dog, the female is of one breed (either German Shepherd or Beagle) and the male is of the other.

There is no way to predict which features the dogs will have. Most of the time, the dogs will be in between the two different traits for a compromise. For example, the German Shepherd is highly intelligent and has high exercise needs while the Beagle has a strong nose and high exercise needs. Therefore, it is likely that the German Shepherd Beagle mix will have the high exercise needs that both breeds have, with a combination of a strong nose and high intelligence.
