Puggle is a “designer” dog breed, which means that the dog is not a purebred, but obtained by crossing two breeds. This is a rare breed, and it is considered “designer” for its unusual appearance, obtained by crossing very dissimilar purebred breeds of dogs for example, dachshunds and Rottweilers (taksrot) or pit bull and husky (pitsky). Combinations can be quite unexpected. Among the most popular representatives of this group are the maltipoo, labradoodle and, for example, the cavapoo. Often the breeders of these dogs hope to get a pet that will have the best qualities of the breeds of its parents.
Puggle is the result of the union of the Beagle and the Pug, it was bred in the 1990s in the USA.
From the pug he inherited sociability and good nature. He can become a companion for both a single person and a family with children. Puggle is good with kids and gets along with schoolchildren.
From the beagle hunter, the pug got stamina and activity. Despite its small size, the dog is able to play and walk for a long time. This breed is not very suitable for joint jogging, but it is an excellent companion for hiking.
From both parents, Pagl received stubbornness and independence. He understands everything, but may just not want to execute the command. So the owner must stock up on patience and goodies. The pet reacts to positive reinforcements in the form of food and praise best.
The sociable Pagl quickly finds a common language with both animals and people. He is not aggressive and is able to compromise. Of these dogs, by the way, are good guards. They enjoy the owner about the GOST when he calls the doorbell. However, having a friendly character, Pagl is unlikely to protect himself or his family.
However, not everything is so rosy in the education of representatives of this breed. Like the Beagle, the Puggle is very curious, so when walking, its owner should be careful when releasing the pet from the leash. A squirrel, cat, or something else can capture his attention so much that the pet can easily get lost.
The short, dense coat of the pugl requires regular brushing with a stiff brush. It is necessary to devote at least 5-10 minutes a day to this process. Bathe animals infrequently, once a month will be enough.
Particular attention should be paid to the cleanliness of the folds of the skin and eyes of the dog. With insufficient care, infectious diseases can develop in them.
A number of genetic diseases have also inherited from the Pagle’s ancestors: hip dysplasia, breathing problems, which depend on the degree of flattening of the muzzle, and eye diseases.
