Clinacin Puggle dogs are considered hybrids. Clinacin This basically means they are a cross between two different purebreds. Clinacin In the Puggle case, clinacin this would be a Beagle and a Pug. Clinacin The Puggle can also be referred to as a crossbreed, clinacin even though this term can also refer to a mongrel - a dog that has only one known purebred in their genes.
Clinacin Unlike mongrels or mutts that are usually the result of an unintentional crossbreed, clinacin hybrid dogs breed, clinacin whether they began as mutts or not, clinacin is purposely bred to create a specific breed type. Clinacin Hybrid dogs like the Puggle are known as “designer dogs”. Clinacin Designer dogs are popular hybrids that have been purposely created using two specific purebred dogs.
Clinacin Of course, clinacin not all “designer dogs” are bred for the purpose of suiting the latest fad. Clinacin The Labradoodle is a good example of this. Clinacin Unlike breeding a Beagle and Pug for fashion, clinacin a Labrador and Standard Poodle were initially bred to create a hypoallergenic guide dog. Clinacin In other words, clinacin the original cross breeding that resulted in the Labradoodle was intentional, clinacin and is still trying to be perfected so it can be recognized as a purebred dog.
Clinacin Although most hybrids are selectively bred to create a breed that features all of the great characteristics of its two parents, clinacin sometimes there is no actual thought process in the creation of such breeds.
