What dog breed is this?
Puggle is a mix between the beagle and pug dog breeds. The name puggle is a portmanteau, following a naming trend in "designer dog" crossbreeding.
The first puggle was bred in the 1980s. The mixed breed was registered by Wallace Havens, a breeder from Wisconsin. He also invented the name. Several years later puggles became popular among dog lovers, and breeders started selling them commercially. Anyway, nowadays the puggle is not officially recognized as a breed and considered a designer dog.
Puggles grow to a mature weight of 15 to 40 pounds with a shoulder height of 8 to 15 inches They can be a variety of colors and patterns depending on the characteristics inherited from the parent breeds. The most common colors are tan, fawn, or black. Mixed colors are not commonly found. They may have a short nose like the pug, or a longer snout like a beagle. Puggles easily get along with people and other dogs. They are cute creatures with warm and fun-loving personality, which usually makes them good pets and beloved family members.
