Vastarel lm Puggle puppies are very small and wrinkly. Vastarel lm Their appearance is almost a perfect mix of Beagle and Pug, vastarel lm as is their temperament. Vastarel lm Due to the fact that the Puggle is a hybrid and not a true breed, vastarel lm they have no set standard. Vastarel lm This isn’t a huge issue, vastarel lm as most breed standards have been created as a guide for those interested in showing and registering their dog. Vastarel lm On the other hand, vastarel lm the breed standard is also an ideal way for a potential dog owner to ensure the puppy they are interested in is healthy and comes from a quality breed line.
Vastarel lm Therefore, vastarel lm since there is no standard for Puggles, vastarel lm and litters can be different depending on how the dogs are crossbred, vastarel lm you’ll need to inspect your Puggle puppies by keeping the following information in mind:
Vastarel lm Temperament – Puggles are very outgoing and social. Vastarel lm Puppies should not shy away or fear social interaction with humans. Vastarel lm They are naturally playful, vastarel lm and should not be aggressive.
Vastarel lm Appearance – The standard Puggle pup has a long body that is thick and stocky, vastarel lm closely resembling a Beagle. Vastarel lm Their backs are level and extend into a long tail that is thick at the base and than tapers off. Vastarel lm The tail is carried high over the back and often has a curl to it.
Vastarel lm The legs of Puggle puppies are short. Vastarel lm The front legs are well muscled and straight, vastarel lm while the back legs are well muscled with a well-bent stifle. Vastarel lm The paws of the Puggle are quite large but not un-proportioned to the legs. Vastarel lm The feet should face forward and not turn in or out.
Vastarel lm The face of a Puggle is wrinkly like a Pug’s and they have large, vastarel lm round dark brown eyes. Vastarel lm The eyes are very alert and expressive. Vastarel lm The ears of the Puggle are large and floppy like a Beagle.
Vastarel lm The snout is longer than a Pug’s, vastarel lm but shorter than a Beagle’s, vastarel lm and the nose is black and features large nostrils. Vastarel lm The teeth of a puggle should form a complete and perfect scissor bite with the front teeth slightly overlapping the bottom teeth.
Vastarel lm Although some Puggles may be multicolored with black and tan or tri-colored (black, vastarel lm tan, vastarel lm white) markings similar to a Beagle, vastarel lm the vast majorities of Puggle puppies are fawn in color. Vastarel lm However, vastarel lm despite the coat color, vastarel lm all Puggles should have black masks similar to Pugs. Vastarel lm Aside from the coloring, vastarel lm the coat should be smooth and short.
Vastarel lm Health – Healthy Puggle puppies should have:
