I was having a discussion with a friend about my female puggle rain. I can't find anything on the internet about whether or not she should have puppies. She is just a puppy herself and I'm not planning on breeding her and this is not a request for a lecture on me getting her spayed so if we could leave that out of the equation.
I was just curious if female puggles can have puggle puppies.. Say if two puggles breeded, or if a puggle and a beagle, etc?
What questions do you have, that you could'nt find on the net? Since she is a mixed breed it would be very hard to tell what you would end up with if you bred her to another mixed breed. If you bred her to a beagle you would probably have puppies with more beagle like traits, but it would always be a guess.
If you want to breed her she needs to be on her 2nd or 3rd heat minimum. you do not want to breed her before that if she is young. The male needs to be at least 1 year old. You should find another puggle to breed with not another mixed dog but that is up to you. They are such cute dogs. If you are not going to breed her, then get her spayed asap. It is much healthier for her never to have to go through a heat or as few times as possible. Think about it thoroughly. It's a lot of work, taking care of the mom and the puppies.
If you breed together two dogs that are described as puggles (Beagle/pug)and they look very similar, then the pups will basically look the same. But nothing is for certain because its a mix breed, we don't know what the other dogs in the past looked like. Any dog shouldn't be bred before 2 years, by 2 years most serious illnesses/genetics will surface. Plus their bodies are not fully developed.
When I look up into the sky, I think to myself, Wheres the ceiling?
since puggles are something of the recent times you have to know the dogs pedigee. If Mama was a pug and dad was beagle, or vice versa you will not get puggles most likely. when people breed, they breed for "type" . Type means certain charcteristics the breeder deems favorable in either temperment or look, or a combo of both. Now if her pedigree shows that she was born of puggles whom through selective breeding have produced dogs that look and act similar to the parents, scientifically the dog is a "breed". Even though no registry/ or people in general recongize them. recongizes them. Does that make sense? basically if history shows that her ancestors produced parents that looked and/or acted like puggles, your dog will produce puggles. If there is no established constiency in the lines you will get variations of the pug and beagles. This is what makes papers that document lineage valuable. After the breed is established, the papers become less valuable, like breeding a lab to a lab, everyone knows, even people with no breeding knowledge that labs will have puppies that look like labs. I think that advent of these of these new "breeds" is a good thing. even though I question the motives behind the breeders at times. I think these new breeds will have deeper gene pools than our breeds of old. at least for now. Taking some of the demand away from dogs that are over bred. thus giving those dogs a break so to speak. but the sad fact selective breeding is: as long as we breed dogs that look like each other (dogs of similar genetics) together. They will inevietably have gene pools that get smaller and smaller. It's just a simple fact. This is even futher compounded by the fact we pool dogs out of the gene pool, that may have a simple gentic fault, like poor coloring or a missing tooth. The knee kerk reaction is to remove the dog from the lines. This does not sound like a bad idea. but done over and over again, it makes the gene pools even shallower. This could be prevented and by allowing breeders to use dogs with competely different genes ( dogs of other breeds) to replace the missing the dogs that were pulled for faults. This would deepen the gene pool, maybe adding some more unwanted genetics but the gain to the breed would be far out way the bad things. It also only takes 3 generations to get the original dog back if a new breed is allowed into the lines. So I think the dog community has responded to the problematic breeds by just creating new ones. another knee jerk reaction. The term "preservation" should not be allowed into a breeders vocabulary. What should be the term is "evolution" of the breed. It's goign to happen whether we like it or not. Look at dogs like the GSD, it's not the dog it once was. And that evolution came from breeders whom tried to "preserve" it. That preservation has lead to it's destruction.
I believe a dog's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment he holds dear, is when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle-with a ball in his mouth."
