A puggle is all about balance. After all, a puggle is half pug and half beagle. The breed originated in the 1980s when people began breeding the two types of dogs together.
The characteristics of a puggle will depend on which dog traits they inherit from their parents, but in general, a puggle has a medium-short snout, tawny coloring, longer legs than a pug, and floppy, forward-folding ears. They have large, dark eyes that can often have the pug’s globular prominence and can also inherit the pug’s underbite.
The puggle’s coat is short, fine, and often soft and glossy like a pug’s. It comes in the colors red, gold / yellow, fawn, black. A puggle will typically have fewer wrinkles than a pug—but maybe keep some folds around the face—giving them adorably exaggerated expressions.
The puggle is a wonderful choice for a family dog. With the adorable squishiness of the pug and the athleticism of the beagle, you’ll have the perfect friend to bring along with you on your adventures. Puggles are high-energy dogs who need lots of exercise, so make sure to plan plenty of walks and playtime for them. Trust us, their energy will wear off on you!
