The Puggle is a designer dog that is a cross between the Beagle and the Pug. Puggles tend to grow to a mature weight of 30 pounds unless over fed. They can be a variety of colors and patterns depending on the characteristics inherited from the parent breeds. The most common colors are tan, fawn, or black. Mixed isn't commonly found. They may have a short nose like the pug, or a longer snout like a beagle. The colors, body shape, ears, etc. will vary.
A Wisconsin breeder named Wallace Havens bred the first puggle in the 1990s. He also coined the name "puggle" and was the first to register the breed with the American Canine Hybrid Club, an organization that tracks mutt dogs. Although Havens was the first to officially breed a puggle, the history of Puggles dates back to the 1980's when U.S. Breeders experimented with creating new dog breeds. By 2000, puggles were being sold commercially to pet owners wanting to own a different, distinctive dog.
