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