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