Playful Puggle (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
They are very playful and sturdy dogs apart from being very lovable and loyal. However, unlike other hybrid dogs, the Puggles do not have any specific health concern which is observed in purebred pugs. As this dog breed has long and elongated nose they also do not face any breathing problems. The Puggles have a comparatively short coat, a distinctive curly tail and velvety ears. They generally range between 8 to 14 lbs and are nearly about 12 to 15 inches in height. It is possible for you to find different colors in Puggles.
The difference between the first generation of Puggles and second generation Puggles: There are a number of people who are confused about the first and second generation of Puggle as they also have the question whether it is possible to breed a Puggle with a Puggle. The first generation of the true Puggles actually comes from a purebred beagle parent and only from a purebred parent pug. Usually, all the pups in the lot would be very similar in looks. Their size and coat color can however differ but for the most part, their physical characteristics are similar.
It is actually possible to bread a Puggle to Puggle or second generation Puggle which is same as you bread any other dog. However, this breeding will not give the same outcome as the first generation Puggle. If you are breeding 2 Puggles from purebred parents then you will still be breeding with a half pug and half beagle but the genetics would be a little shuffled during the second time. the pups would look very similar like the beagles like the Puggles or pugs that you started with and their color of a combination. There are a number of people who are using what is called a poetic license that includes the Puggles. Here, the Puggle is not a part of Chihuahua, Poodle or any other breed but a mix of pug and the beagle only. The second generation Puggle would just be the result when a true Puggle is a breed to true Puggle and no other breed.
