Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.


Beagle/Treeing Walker Coonhound????

Hi guys!! im not sure but i think maybe we might have a Beagle/Treeing Walker Coonhound.In march we were given a Beagle named Max.The lady who gave him to us got him form a pet store. his papers just say beagle,(he is not registered) but everyone that sees him says he is big for a Beagle. My mother in law thinks he is Basset/Beagle mix, and a man we never met before said he raises Beagles think he is Beagle/foxhound mix.... personally i see quite a resemblance in the Beagle/Treeing Walker Coonhound mix. just wondering what you guys think??? it really does not matter if he is all beagle or a mix of something...he is one terrific just curious...his head is very small compared to his body and his muzzle is very long and narrow. he is about 15-16 inches tall and weighs about 40 pounds.

    Your mother-in-law may be the closest. He does have some basset qualities. Long ears for a Beagle, he looks large, and longer than tall. It's possible he's just a poor quality Beagle. Beagles come in 2 sizes and then there are the pet / show versions and the hunting versions. Like most Beagles, he appears to love his food and his naps, and is a bit chunky. 30 pounds for a male in tip-top shape is normal. A husky beagle could come closer to 40. I don't think a Fox Hound mix is likely. Fox Hounds are more active all the time.

    The ears may lean toward Basset, but in some of the pictures they don't look any longer than my Coot's ears. Rule of thumb for Beagle ear proportions, they should come to about the tip of their nose.Weight doesn't exactly say much, as you mentioned on Max's profile page that he's a chunky monkey and needs a diet. My dog, Coot is 4yr. Is a registered 15in beagle, and weighs 36 pounds of just about pure muscle. There has been discussion in my family that though he's registered Beagle there may have been some Basset in his history somewhere b/c of his stockiness. Coot has very dense bones & deep chested which is more common in bassets. There may be a taller hound in there because in 1pic he looks taller than Coot who's about as tall as a Beagle should be. Either way it seems you've found a great pet.
