Puggles



Description: The Puggles have become very fashionable dogs lately. As you probably know, a puggle is a cross between a pug (from whom it takes the curly tail) and a beagle (from whom it took the lean body).
Nowadays these kinds of hybrids are called „designer dogs”, a very chic name, I would say.
Being a mixed breed, it is not recognized by the AKC, but it is recognized by the American Canine Hybrid Club.
While many are against mixing breeds, it is also true that the genetic problems in a pure bred, due to recessive genes, are avoided in a mixed breed.
A puggle may inherit the parents’ traits in different degrees, but generally it is healthier than the pug and the beagle breeds.

Physical characteristics: Height: 13-15 inches (33-38 cm.). Weight: 15-30 pounds (6.8-13.6 kg.)

Temperament: The puggles are quite calm and have all the best qualities of a lap dog, and at the same time they are energetic, playful and cheerful. They get along well with children and other pets. They like to play and to go for a walk, but after that they need a little time to rest.

Health: In general, the puggles have less problems with the joints, the eyes and the skin, than a pug. They also don’t have breathing problems (like the pugs), because they have a longer muzzle, so they can stand heat better. On the other hand, they inherit some health problems from the beagles, such as cherry eye.

Maintenance/Grooming: Puggle dogs don’t need a lot of maintenance, as they are short-haired. They are average shedders. Every now and then, a bath and nail clipping. Make sure to clean the wrinkles on their forehead.
They require moderate exercise, one walk a day is fine with them; in case they’ve inherited the beagle's desire to run, make sure they don't get too tired.

Training: The puggle is very playful, that’s why it is a little bit difficult to train. They are intelligent, so they can learn many tricks, but they can also be stubborn. They must be socialized well when puppies.

Breeding, puppies: Breeding puggles among themselves is not recommended (unless you decided to create a new race!). Usualy, the breeders tend to breed just one generation of puggles, from a purebred pug (usuallt the male) and a purebred beagle (usually the female, so as to have less problems when delivering puppies).

Varieties: They can have many colours, the most common one is fawn, but they can also be black, multi-coloured or tri-colour.
