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