Puggle – Сute Friend with Improved Breathing

Puggle is one of the “designer dogs”. Behind the mixing of two breeds of Pug and Beagle – “Pug and Beagle” = Puggle – lies the hope for improving the health of adorable Pugs without changing their character. Handy Puggles are very popular as family dogs and make sweet companions for people of all generations.

Puggle: Mixed Breed with a Noble Purpose

The first crosses were made in the 1980s. By this point in time, the Pug was already clearly breeding: the nose was getting shorter and shorter, which increasingly led to breathing problems. The Beagle was supposed to give the new breed a longer nose and a stronger build. Today, there are both direct mixtures of purebred parents, and crossbreeds from the ongoing “breeding of Pugs”. Dogs from later generations of Puggles are considered more stable, hardy, and predictable than puppies from a direct cross between a male Pug and a female Beagle. At best, the Puggle is an active, lovable little dog with healthy nasal breathing.

Puggle Personality

Small hybrids are smart, playful, and active dogs that love to be with you wherever you go. The Pug has been bred for many years to be friendly to people, adapt easily, and get by with relatively little exercise. That’s why he always wants to be with his people. As a result, many Puggles have trouble being left alone. They have been known to bark and use their voice as protest organs. The Beagle combines an outstanding sense of smell, more enjoyment of movement, and a moderate hunting instinct. This may also be the reason why the Puggle is considered an adventurous master of escape.

Puggle Training & Keeping

Many owners say their Puggles know exactly how cute they are and use their doggy eyes to get their way. Humane as it may sound, there is some truth in this thought: the Pug, with its round muzzle, large appearance, and short nose, fits the child’s model. As a result, many people find it difficult to train a Pug with the same consistency and seriousness as training another dog. Both races are mostly cooperative but have marked independence and willingness to ignore the commands of their people. Make sure your puppy is well socialized and trained from day one.

The Puggle may not be the most athletic breed, but it does benefit from good physical and mental exercise. Avoid dog sports where there is a lot of jumping – a compact small dog is not designed for this. Search games, mantrailing, and dog tricks, on the other hand, awaken his enthusiasm for the job. Because both parent breeds tend to gain weight, mixed breeds also quickly develop weight problems. Long walks keep your Puggle in shape.


The short, soft coat of Puggles is easy to care for: regular brushing will keep shedding to a minimum in the home. Like Pugs, their eyes can be prone to inflammation, so it’s important to check them daily. The diet of mostly food-oriented dogs should be adapted to their needs.


Since both Pugs and Beagles are susceptible to some breed and hereditary diseases, it is extremely important when buying a puppy to look for a responsible breeder who breeds only healthy and genetically tested dogs. With proper care, a Puggle can live up to 15 years.
