The Puggle is a hybrid or mongrel dog, a cross between the Beagle and Pug breeds. Although these dogs sometimes have the unfortunate status of “designer breed”, you can find them in the care of shelters and rescue groups. Remember to adopt. Puggles get along well with children and other dogs, and can be a great family companion. Just be aware that they may enjoy barking, and although they are intelligent and affectionate, they are not always willing to oblige when it comes to training.
