WHAT IS A PUGGLE?

cross between a female beagle and male pug. The intentional hybridization is the term used when you produce popular crosses
or do planned crossed breedings.
The breeder must start with the right dogs in order to produce a high standard breed of
dog.Breeders should use full blooded, registered if possible, beagles and pugs to get a good quality puggle puppies.
select female beagle should be used along with a select, quality pug stud in order to produce the best of this new hybrid
breed of dog.

breeding which is practiced among many purebreed breeders. You should get a very healthy,loving dog.
Its origin is hazy, but most believe the first puggle puppy was created during a jailbreak at a kennel.
A frisky male pug must have nosed his way to a female beagle and nestled down for the night. What resulted was a litter of
crossbred puppies resembling baby bloodhounds and aptly dubbed puggles.
But what may have previously resulted in a litter of throw-away pups will now sell at a pet store for
up to $1,000 a head -- almost $200 more than the price of a purebred beagle pup.

Description : Puggles are a relatively new hybrid dog breed produced
by mating a select female Beagle to a select male Pug- resulting in a very sweet-tempered, affectionate (but not yippy, hyper,
or insecure) pup that is very low-maintenance family-friendly (great with children and other dogs), loose-skinned, wrinkly-faced,
endearing in both personality and looks. Well into their adult lives, they exemplify the best of what dogs are all about-
loyalty, companionship, and affection; translating into a breed that is very eager to please its owner. It has been proven
over time that Puggle owners feel their Puggles change their own family chemistry for the better giving everyone a "lift"
by their happy, can-do natures. As well, they are durable, hardy dogs that can easily take a bit of rough-housing (boys love
them for this.) Girls appreciate their affectionate, lap-loving qualities. Puggles usually get to be 14-20lbs. as adults,
are 13-15" high at the shoulder, typically have a curly tail, are tan with a black muzzle or black- earning them the nickname
of "miniature mastiffs".
