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