The short answer is no. Pocket Beagles are the smallest variety of the beagle breed, just like the toy poodle is the smallest variety of their breed. AKC recognizes the 13" and 15" beagle as standards, but the pockets haven't been on the scene quite long enough to make it to AKC. Eventually I am sure they will, but it's going to take more time. Other registries recognize a pocket beagle as being 100% pure bred beagle and the standard measurement is 11" at the withers. We can't really take weight into accountability here due to differences in diet, but on average I would venture to say the full grown Pocket is usually around 15-16lbs, of course that would suggest the dog is healthy, active and not being overfed or underfed.
Spring is in the air here at Perfect Pocket Beagles! I'm not sure who's happier about the warm weather... the kids, the dogs, or me! While the sun and green grass are welcome, the fleas and ticks didn't get them memo to stay away. So, don't forget to treat your pup for that. We use Advantage Multi, which is also a heart worm preventative and will de-worm your doggo at the same time.
