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!
