Temperament & Personality
The Pomeagle is the perfect companion toy dog, and they possess the typicalities of a complete apartment dog. A prolonged period of separation from the owner will change into anxiety, and frequent barking as these dogs are emotionally attached to their owner.

Supervision of the parents is required whenever these dogs are with children. Some of the dogs may inherit chasing and hunting abilities from the Beagle’s side. They are extremely curious and wants to investigate any new thing.
These Pomeagles need daily activities to maintain a healthy body. Take the dog for a short walk or arrange a play session for it every two days. If the dog coughs while doing exercises, the owner should immediately consult the Vet for any medical advice.
Brushing the coat regularly using a firm bristle will ensure that the dog remains clean and matt-free. Bathing, when they get dirty and smelly will ensure that the house stays clean and hygienic. If the dog inherits Pomeranian fluffy ears, then regular cleaning is needed to ensure that its ear does not get any infection.
