I decided it was about time I let everyone meet our newest family member.  As you can see she is the cutest puggle ever.  After falling in love with Honey (Ashlee and Jed's puggle) I decided I really wanted one. For those of you who don't know anything about puggles, here are a few facts.
pug·gle (pug'gle) n.
A small hybrid breed of dog created by mating a male pug and a female beagle; thereby producing an energetic hound having a thickset body, a short-haired smooth coat of fawn, tan, and black coloring, a deeply wrinkled forehead, short legs, a curled tail and drooping ears.
The Puggle appeared around seven years ago when a resident of New York crossbred a pug and a beagle and the rest is puggle history.
Puggles are sweet-tempered, playful, very intelligent, social, and affectionate.  Puggles truly do inherit the best of the Pug and Beagle and the combination makes for a truly remarkable pet.
Puggles generally grow to be 15-25 lbs. and approximately 13-15 inches at the shoulder.  Puggles can, of course be upward of 30 lbs, or as small as 12 lbs.  This depends on many factors such as the size of the parents, as well as the size of the litter.
