Question by isabelledustylo: Are “pocket beagles” or “english loughner beagles” a legit breed?
My boyfriend loves beagles, but because of our apartment restrictions, we can’t have one. I found a few ads for “pocket beagles” or “English Loughner beagles” online, but precious little information exists. Is this a legitimate breed? Do they have some awful genetic issue because of inbreeding to make them that small? What’s going on here?
yes I KNOW it’s not listed on any registry… I kind of checked that out. The reason I ask is because my family had a great miniature australian shepherd – absolutely fantastic dog, but you won’t find it registered anywhere (back then… now it’s more popular, so it might be). Has anyone seen a pocket beagle or knows what they’re like… BEYOND just saying that it isn’t on a registry.

No – they’ll either be mixed breeds, ill-bred Beagles or both.
Look at the AKC and KC websites’ breed sections – the only Beagle you’ll see listed is a Beagle; if the AKC or KC haven’t recognised it yet, it isn’t an officially recognised or legitimate breed, whatever the breeder wants to tell you.
