Diclomax sr Puggle dogs are considered hybrids. Diclomax sr This basically means they are a cross between two different purebreds. Diclomax sr In the Puggle case, diclomax sr this would be a Beagle and a Pug. Diclomax sr The Puggle can also be referred to as a crossbreed, diclomax sr even though this term can also refer to a mongrel - a dog that has only one known purebred in their genes.
Diclomax sr Unlike mongrels or mutts that are usually the result of an unintentional crossbreed, diclomax sr hybrid dogs breed, diclomax sr whether they began as mutts or not, diclomax sr is purposely bred to create a specific breed type. Diclomax sr Hybrid dogs like the Puggle are known as “designer dogs”. Diclomax sr Designer dogs are popular hybrids that have been purposely created using two specific purebred dogs.
Diclomax sr Of course, diclomax sr not all “designer dogs” are bred for the purpose of suiting the latest fad. Diclomax sr The Labradoodle is a good example of this. Diclomax sr Unlike breeding a Beagle and Pug for fashion, diclomax sr a Labrador and Standard Poodle were initially bred to create a hypoallergenic guide dog. Diclomax sr In other words, diclomax sr the original cross breeding that resulted in the Labradoodle was intentional, diclomax sr and is still trying to be perfected so it can be recognized as a purebred dog.
Diclomax sr Although most hybrids are selectively bred to create a breed that features all of the great characteristics of its two parents, diclomax sr sometimes there is no actual thought process in the creation of such breeds. Diclomax sr For instance, diclomax sr although Puggle dogs are very sweet and sociable dogs, diclomax sr they were bred for no other purpose than to be a family pet.
Diclomax sr They are not hypoallergenic and they are still prone to Pug breathing problems, diclomax sr which can be made worse because of their love for hunting that has been passed to them through their Beagle genes. Diclomax sr For reasons such as this, diclomax sr many purebred breeders argue that designer dog breeding is irresponsible.
Diclomax sr Despite what some breeders may think, diclomax sr the fact of the matter is that hybrid dogs are very popular, diclomax sr and often make excellent family pets and generally tend to be very healthy and happy breeds.
Diclomax sr It is also important to point out that a hybrid dog is not considered a “true breed” due to the fact that they don’t have an official breed standard. Diclomax sr For this reason, diclomax sr they are not recognized by any national kennel club. Diclomax sr In addition, diclomax sr not being a true breed means that each Puggle litter produced will be different each time.
Diclomax sr Nonetheless, diclomax sr even though Puggle dogs may not have a “true” standard to their name, diclomax sr the fact remains that this special hybrid is in high demand, diclomax sr and is loved by many. Diclomax sr After all, diclomax sr who says a dog needs an official standard to be considered a great pal and a one-of-a-kind friend.
