Mostly all dog clubs and the International Cynological Association determined the standard of the color of the beagle as “any hue of the hounds, excluding brown”. Only here “Kennel Club” the United States allows this coloring, causing disputes from dog breeders of the whole world about what color still admiss.

Today we will get acquainted with the colors that most of the Biglevod are recognized as permissible, as well as rare, but no less recognized shades of these magnificent dogs.

Basic colors

It is worth noting that for making the maximum clarity “Kennel Club” has already published the official adopted list of beagle colors in 2010, and in the editorial office it was clearly designated which colors were accepted as standard, and which absolutely unacceptable.

For most people who know or keeps bigley, is a three-color coloring: spin – black, fruit – white, all housing – redhead. Many call such a color classic.

And yet, on this variations do not stop, and the gamma constitutes a variety of, where it is difficult to call some one color faithful, and others are unacceptable. Everything is very subjective, and each Biglevold is proud of his hounds.

Several basic combinations allocate:

  • Bicolor+
  • tricolor+
  • Gray Tricolor+
  • Brown Tricolor.

    There are beautiful variations:

    • spotted+
    • Crap+
    • motley.

    It is worth considering their Read more.


    “Bi” means 2, that is, such a beagle – two-color, as a rule, white-red. Redhead color can be represented as muted, closer to yellow and bright, reminding, rather, red. Puppy will be born with pale spots that will be dark over time. Nose darkest. If the dog is light, then the mole is more intense.


    Colors are combined and interspersed the most bizarre, but here’s the tip of the tail will always have a white color. Spots have different sizes, and the dominant shade will add the bigger more and more unique combination.

    If white is more, the animal will look very harmonious and innocently, while the mixtures with black will add to the appearance of the appearance. By the way, the black either will not always be in its intensity – sometimes the color can be more pale, closer to gray, sometimes just coal, and sometimes even with a blue tide, which is also called the “Color of the Voronov Wing”. Nasal urge in the same way as in the previous case, black.

    Gray Tricolor

    Another three-color option – red-white gray. The gray shade itself is more often called blue, because the tint when illuminating or the sun creates exactly the impression. Puppy will be born white and gray, and an adult beagle will already change its colors – a redhead will add.

    Nose Middle Graphite Pencil Shade, Eyes Very Light, Sometimes Lemon Shade.

    Brown Tricolor

    These beautiful beagles, breeders have changed the gene that is responsible for black painting, and brightened it to chocolate. The eyes of these beauties are green, as if they have a bright brown pencil pod. Nose lobe too brown. Shades of this color can be so different that it is not possible to list everything – up to 190 tones! This is the ocher, and all the “types” of chocolate, and sandy, gold, and nutty, and wine, and many, many other.

    It’s a shame that such a variety of brown beagles has not struck the cynological community, and this magnificent color is not recognized as standard.


    Such a color is jokingly called the “torn tricolor” – due to how sharply contrast each other color on the animal. White is like a base, and it literally “bursts” black everywhere. Sometimes you can see only black dots or stains mixed with red.


    Very spectacularly, representatives of this coloring – and two-color, and tricolor beagles can wear different shapes and sizes of specks. First, as a rule, when the puppy was only born, it is impossible to see any inclusions, but they appear already on 5 weeks of life. But there are also crap puppies that are already born with such a wonderful highlight. Interesting detail also lies in the fact that the color of the paw pads in such grip dogs are solid dark, and the pink happens to all other beagles.


    Very unusual coloring. Different color intensity in these dogs create rabbit-motley color or lemon motion. The rarest shade – the plaque-motley, when all the basic black woollines.

    Basically, these hounds are found in the United Kingdom, where they are favorites from breeders due to their unusualness, and the tint itself, unlike global decrees, is included in the standard.

    Painting the dark dark, and the muzzle necessarily redhead. But Biglevods are not very clearly determined, where the boundaries of this variety. For some – when some wools are of the same color, and inclosure – another. Others are considered to be a motley staining, when black and redheads are evenly goes.

    This color is characterized by a certain feature of white, which can never be called clean. At the motley beagles, he is always either “dirty” or with all sorts of pastel impurities. The border of the white and the rest of the colors is very blurred.

    As we see, Variations of even several described types and subtypes The great set, and most often to avoid mistakes, only two basic colors are simply recorded into the pedigree documents: bicolor or tricolor. It is very rare to see additional explanations, but the owner certainly knows how the color of his faithful friend is unique, and will always explain in detail anyone who wants.
