The Puggle is meant to be the best of both the Pug and the Beagle. The Pug is meant to soften some of the Beagle’s independence and roaming tendencies. They are cuddlers and lovers of home and family.
Puggles have short and easy to care for coats. A quick brush session once a week with a rubber brush or a slicker and you should be set for another week. Puggles do tend to shed a lot though, so be prepared for that, you may want to increase the frequency of the brushing in order to mitigate some of the loose hair. Bathing should be only as needed since it can strip their skin of moisture.
Origin of the Puggle
The Puggle was another result of the 1990s designer dog boom in the United States. They were bred by crossing a Pug and a Beagle with the main objective of producing a companion dog that is a similar size but a more robust health profile, being less likely to inherit assorted health and behavior issues in the parents.
