Ginseng Puggle dogs are considered hybrids. Ginseng This basically means they are a cross between two different purebreds. Ginseng In the Puggle case, ginseng this would be a Beagle and a Pug. Ginseng The Puggle can also be referred to as a crossbreed, ginseng even though this term can also refer to a mongrel - a dog that has only one known purebred in their genes.
Ginseng Unlike mongrels or mutts that are usually the result of an unintentional crossbreed, ginseng hybrid dogs breed, ginseng whether they began as mutts or not, ginseng is purposely bred to create a specific breed type. Ginseng Hybrid dogs like the Puggle are known as “designer dogs”. Ginseng Designer dogs are popular hybrids that have been purposely created using two specific purebred dogs.
Ginseng Of course, ginseng not all “designer dogs” are bred for the purpose of suiting the latest fad. Ginseng The Labradoodle is a good example of this. Ginseng Unlike breeding a Beagle and Pug for fashion, ginseng a Labrador and Standard Poodle were initially bred to create a hypoallergenic guide dog. Ginseng In other words, ginseng the original cross breeding that resulted in the Labradoodle was intentional, ginseng and is still trying to be perfected so it can be recognized as a purebred dog.
Ginseng Although most hybrids are selectively bred to create a breed that features all of the great characteristics of its two parents, ginseng sometimes there is no actual thought process in the creation of such breeds. Ginseng For instance, ginseng although Puggle dogs are very sweet and sociable dogs, ginseng they were bred for no other purpose than to be a family pet.
Ginseng They are not hypoallergenic and they are still prone to Pug breathing problems, ginseng which can be made worse because of their love for hunting that has been passed to them through their Beagle genes. Ginseng For reasons such as this, ginseng many purebred breeders argue that designer dog breeding is irresponsible.
Ginseng Despite what some breeders may think, ginseng the fact of the matter is that hybrid dogs are very popular, ginseng and often make excellent family pets and generally tend to be very healthy and happy breeds.
Ginseng 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.

Ginseng Nonetheless, ginseng even though Puggle dogs may not have a “true” standard to their name, ginseng the fact remains that this special hybrid is in high demand, ginseng and is loved by many. Ginseng After all, ginseng who says a dog needs an official standard to be considered a great pal and a one-of-a-kind friend.
