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