Here is an interesting page a fellow Beagler made after doing some serious research into the "phenomenon" of the Blue Dapple/Merle Beagle. She's a tenacious lady to keep searching like she did...great stuff!

I'll never understand why people can't just be happy with just a regular dog. Why do people need to feel like they have this OMG SO SPESHUL AND RARE dog? I'd be willing to guess that "rare Norwegian blue beagles" still poop and still puke on your favorite piece of furniture and still look at you like you have three heads when you say "sit" from time to time.

Well said Houndlove..Good for your friend RW for doing the research! I wish the PEOPLE THAT WERE BUYING the puppies would do that before buying some "rare" dog and paying God knows what for it! Reminds me of the "rare blue merle" pit bulls, and "silver" labs..geez people snap back into reality.

The Blue Dapple/Merle coloring is showing up in many different breeds. Some breeders of Siberian Huskies are passing off the dapple/merle as piebald markings to make a dollar.

Wow! I never knew! I love the colors! They make them look so unique!

*ROFL!!!* 'ELLO POLLY!!! Wakey wakey!!!!AHAHAHAH!!!!
I will say that while those pups are darn cute, certainly not Beaglets. Good for your breeder friend for investigating ^_^ Looks like a case just like those doggone Tri Color Shepherds >.<

... Oh, loved those tri GSDs ... and "silver Labs" ... with DNA tests to "prove" they're purebred, ROFL
You're right though - those ain't purebred Beagles. The breed does NOT carry the gene for dappling - they only carry the ticking factor. Now, Daschunds OTOH, do carry the dappling gene. It's the same thing as those morons promoting pocket or mini Beagles. One "breeder" website had dappled pocket Beagles ... you know there was some paper fudging going on because I don't care who she reg'd them with, a mutt is a mutt is not a Beagle who cannot possibly produce a dappled pup.
BTW, Xeph - gorgeous Shepherds! Are they Am show lines? I honestly haven't seen Am bloodlines, well, so correct, lol!

So I have this dog, he is a Beagle (dapple or mix maybe). I took him to the vet today and he said he was a Beagle tri colored merle saying he was a true beagle, but had the merle color. He told me he is a full bred beagle. But from this site it seems like he may have been mixed with a dapple dachshund (which my parents actually own . . . jake is a double dapple dachshund with blue eyes and a pink nose). Anyway, I thought my Beagle, Chance, was maybe mixed with a Blue tick hound, or Catahoula mix or something. Do you guys have any advice on him?
I adopted him from a county shelter here in Michigan.

Hi, welcome to the forum. Must see your dog! Pictures please.

Thanks! I uploaded pictures on my profile. Can you not see the pictures? There should be 3 -- all of Chance. I would attach my Facebook URL, but it has not been acting right all day and now it won't even log in. : ( Let me know if you can see them or not. Thanks so much for your help. If all else fails I guess I can email them or something.
