Poogle Size Guide: Intro
The Beagle-Poodle mix is one of those cute as a button, smaller-sized Poodle mixes that we absolutely can’t get enough of! They’re oh so loving, friendly, playful, and intelligent Doods that quite literally get along with everyone.
The only downside with Poogles is that due to their rarity, it’s difficult to track down ethical breeders who specialize in this Poodle mix. Likewise, as there aren’t any set standards for the Poogle as of yet, it can also be tricky to predict the outcome.
But that’s exactly why we decided to look into it, so that you know what you’re dealing with when adopting a Poogle. Whether you’re thinking about getting a Poogle puppy or are lucky enough to already raise one, the following information will surely help you gain a better understanding of the Poogle’s size and growth patterns.
Poogle Size Predictions: How Big Does A Poogle Get?
The Poogle size can range between 10 and 25 pounds in weight and 10 to 15 inches in height. They’re usually small to medium-sized dogs, just like their Beagle parents.
|Toy/Mini Poogle Size||Mini/Standard Poogle Size|
|Weight||10-15 pounds||15-25 pounds|
|Height||10-12 inches||13-15 inches|
|When Full-Grown?||7.5-11 months||11-13 months|
*A dog’s height is measured from its withers. This the highest part of the shoulder blades.
Poogles are most commonly created with Miniature Poodles in the mix, as they’re the closest in size to purebred Beagles. However, Toy Poodles can also be used to create smaller Poogles. Miniature Poodles usually weigh between 10 and 20 pounds, whereas Toy Poodles can weigh as little as 4 pounds and up to 12 pounds. Needless to say, the Standard Poodle with its weight ranging between 38 and 70 pounds is simply too large to use in the mix.
The purebred Beagle also comes in two different sizes. Smaller Beagles tend to weigh around 15 to 20 pounds, and larger Beagles can weigh between 20 and 30 pounds. To achieve more consistency in terms of the puppies’ size, breeders would cross Beagles and Poodles that are most similar in size.
Are There Different Sizes Of Poogle?
As both the purebred Beagle and Poodle come in different sizes, this can definitely affect how big the Poogle pups turn out. It all boils down to the puppies’ genetics, the size of their parents, and their generation.
There’s also the matter of how breeders refer to their pups. As Poogles are always small to medium-sized dogs, the labeling can get a bit confusing. Some breeders refer to their smaller Poogles with a Toy Poodle parent as Toy Poogles. Meanwhile, others would call them Mini Poogles. Similarly, you may find that some people call the larger Poogle as Standard Poogle, and others would refer to them as Mini Poogles, since they have a Miniature Poodle parent. It’s all very confusing!
That’s why it’s so important that you carefully research the breeders you consider working with and ask them any and all questions you might have about their puppies. Even though ethical breeders won’t ever guarantee the exact size of their puppies, they can tell you about which size of the Poodle is used in the mix and how big the puppies have been in their previous litters.
How Generation Can Affect Poogle Size
With Poodle mixes and other hybrid crosses, we also must take into account their generation. Essentially, a Poogle’s generation tells us how they were bred and gives us a hint of their potential genetic makeup. Therefore, we might be able to predict their physical and personality traits with a bit more accuracy. As the Poogle’s size is very much influenced by the size of its parents, it’s possible to achieve more control over their size with different generations.
Before we take a look at all the possible Poogle generations and the estimated genetic makeup of each generation, we must note that currently they’re most commonly bred as first-generation pups. But as the Beagle-Poodle mix becomes more popular over time, we can expect breeders to start specializing in later generations of this adorable Dood as well.
|1st Parent||2nd Parent||% Beagle*||% Poodle*|
|F1 Poogle (first-generation)||Beagle||Poodle||50%||50%|
|F1B Poogle (first-generation backcross)||F1 Poogle||Poodle||25%||75%|
|F1BB Poogle (first-generation backcross backcross)||F1B Poogle||Poodle||12.5%||87.5%|
|F2 Poogle (second-generation)||F1 Poogle||F1 Poogle||50%||50%|
|F2B Poogle (second-generation backcross)||F1 Poogle||F1B Poogle||37.5%||62.5%|
|F2B Poogle (alternate cross)||F2 Poogle||Poodle||25%||75%|
|F3 / Multigen Poogle||F1B Poogle or higher||F1B Poogle or higher||Varies||Varies|
*These are generic calculations only – genetics are rarely mathematically accurate.
In large and giant-sized breeds, there’s usually quite a notable difference between male and female dogs. Generally, males are heavier and taller than females. However, with the Beagle-Poodle mix, don’t expect to see much of a difference between boys and girls, as it’s often the case with smaller-sized dogs.
Poogle Size Charts & Growth Patterns
Dogs tend to grow the fastest in the first 50% of their full adult weight. This can roughly correlate to the first six months of their life. As the Poogle is smaller than many other breeds, we can expect them to reach that milestone a bit earlier.
After reaching half their adult weight, a Poogle’s growth will gradually slow from there on. But before they reach their full adult weight, they will reach their adult height a few months before. During this growth phase, you’ll notice that your pup is already quite tall, but looks a bit lanky still.

Standard/Mini Poogle Size
The larger Poogle may sometimes be referred to both as Standard or Mini Poogle. These pups fall into the mini to medium-sized dog category. The larger Poogle usually reaches half its adult weight between 3.5 and 5 months old. They will then plateau at their full adult weight between 11 and 13 months of age.
If you’ve got a larger Poogle and would like to do a quick calculation to predict their adult weight, then try out this simple formula:
Mini/Toy Poogle Size
The smaller variation of the Poogle falls into the toy-sized breed category. Therefore they also tend to grow faster than the larger Poogle. We can expect the smaller Poogles to reach half their adult weight as early as 3.5 months old. They’ll then finish growing between 7.5 and 11 months of age.
For smaller Poogles, this would be a better formula for predicting their estimated adult weight:
Poogle Size: FAQ
Poogles can weigh around 10 to 25 pounds as adults with their height ranging between 10 and 15 inches. It’s important to note that the size of the Beagle and Poodle used in the mix will affect the size of their Poogle puppies, as both purebreds come in multiple different size categories.
A Mini Poogle usually weighs between 10 and 15 pounds and they stand about 10 to 12 inches tall at the shoulder. However, if a breeder refers to their Poogle puppies with a Miniature Poodle parent as Mini Poogles, then these pups will be slightly larger in size – ranging between 15 and 25 pounds in weight and 13 to 15 inches in height.
Poogle Size: Final Thoughts
Understanding the estimated adult size of your Poogle puppy is vital for many reasons. Most notably, this helps you be prepared for all of your four-legged pal’s needs through puppyhood and up until their adult years. Although the Poogle is usually a smaller-sized pup, there is quite a significant difference between smaller and larger Poogles. So, if you’re after a certain size, make sure to discuss this with your chosen breeder to ensure that you’re getting exactly what you have in mind. We hope you learned some useful facts about the Poogle’s size and growth patterns from this guide so that you have all the details you need to make the right decision.
