From Wikipedia: Puggle is the name for a crossbreed dog with a beagle parent and a pug parent. The name puggle is a portmanteau, following a naming trend in “designer dog” crossbreeding.
“Puggle” dogs can also be named Bug, Buggle, or a Peagle. But, they are most commonly known as a Puggle. This dog is sometimes classified as a Designer Dog.
Wisconsin breeder Wallace Havens bred the first puggle in the 1980s. Havens coined the name puggle and was the first to register the crossbreed with the American Canine Hybrid Club, an organization that tracks crossbred dogs. Although Havens was the first to officially breed a puggle, the history of puggles dates back to the 1980s when U.S. breeders experimented with creating new dogs. By 2000, puggles were being sold commercially to pet owners wanting to own a different, distinctive dog.
No major kennel clubs or other breed registries – such as American Kennel Club, United Kennel Club, and Canadian Kennel Club – recognize puggles as a dog breed. Puggles are an intentionally crossbred form of mongrel, and have sometimes been called a designer dog
Puggles are great family dogs, they love to be around kids and are very friendly. They have characteristics of beagles, meaning they love to sniff for things and are excellent jumpers. Some of their pug characteristics include incredible land speed and a deep seated hatred of throw pillows. 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. The temperament of puggles generally combines the active and inquisitive nature of the Beagle with the companionable nature of the Pug. These psychographic traits make it a companion breed with lower required exercise needs, though on walks they do tend to become quite thirsty. They are sometimes called “nature’s space heaters” due to their high internal temperature and natural inclination to cuddle.
Although Puggles are great family dogs, they are not great apartment dogs since Pugs like to bark and Beagles are known for howling. Puggles tend to do both.
