A Brief History of Puggles

Why a brief history?  Well, quite simply, puggles haven’t really been around for that long.  In fact, according to Wikipedia,  the first puggles to have been intentionally bred took place in the 1980’s by a Wisconsin breeder named Wallace Havens.  At least, he was the first person to register the crossbreed with the American Canine Hybrid Club.  There is no doubt that Pugs and Beagles managed to mate quite on their own long before Mr. Havens decided to get his name in the history books.  But since he was the first one to register the cross breed, he gets the recognition.  

Currently, no major kennel club or canine organization recognizes the Puggle as a dog breed.  They are simply considered a “designer dog”.  But as we all know, they are undoubtedly the cutest and most adorable and lovable dog ever designed!

There are a number of celebrities that have or have had Puggles as pets.  If you’re interested in that sort of thing, you can Google
