Is the Beagle / Pug Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Puggle

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The cross between the Pug and the Beagle, the so-called Puggle, is an undeniable cutie. Playful, intelligent, and social, this mix can make a great family pet.

Appearance / health:
Mixed breeds show great variation in their appearance because they are not, after all, a standardized purebreed. But we can give you some ideas of what you might expect. Puggles tend to grow to a mature weight of between 15 and 25 pounds, and they typically stand 10 to 15 inches at the shoulders. While colors vary, the majority are fawn colored.Some Puggles may have a tail that is the length of a Beagle, but it may be curled like that of a Pug. Puggles may display an underbite, a trait from the Pug parent.

Behavior / temperament:
Puggles can be high-energy dogs, and require regular exercise, in the form of walks. Like the parent breeds, Puggles can exhibit a relatively high degree of independence, which trainers may find challenging. Some Puggles dig holes, howl, and wander off if they catch interesting scents, traits inherited from their Beagle parents. They love the company of their owners, and may get jealous if they do not get sufficient attention. When left alone for long periods, it may develop destructive habits such as barking or chewing. Since are smaller, many novice owners find it easier to train and socialize them. Some may have inherited a desire for hunting or chasing other animals and birds.

They learn fast. Positive training methods with less repetition are likely to work with them. Thanks to that Beagle heritage, some are known to howl.
