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