What is a Puggle?
pug·gle (püg'gle) n.
a small hybrid breed of dog created by mating a pug and beagle; thereby producing an energetic hound having: a thickset body; a short-haired, smooth coat of fawn, tan, and black coloring; a deeply wrinkled forehead; short legs; a curled tail; and drooping ears.
Puggles grow to be 15-30 lbs. and approximately 13-15 inches at the shoulder.
Consists of short hairs. Puggles come in a wide range of colors. Fawn puggles are the most common, but some are tan, black, white, or tri-colored.
Puggles are sweet-tempered, playful, intelligent, social, and affectionate.
This breed gets along well with children, other dogs, and other household pets.
Puggles require low maintenance. The occasional bath, nail clipping, and ear cleaning are all that is required.
Puggles have a good amount of energy and love to play. They enjoy going on walks and running around. Puggles also love their downtime. They are really good lap dogs and love to cuddle up to you.
This hybrid is also fairly easy to train. Puggles can learn all basic commands including: sit, down, stay, settle, take it, leave it, fetch, roll over, and come. These dogs are small enough that you can even train them to use a litter box. They are good listeners and like to please you.
Puggles do shed as all dogs do. Their short hair and small size seem to minimize the problem.
Puggles do bark. Some more than others.
A Puggle is not a hypoallergenic dog.
Some Puggles do howl on occasion. They can inherit this trait from the beagle genes.
