Five Reasons to Love a Pugel Dog
If you're looking for the ideal pet for an urban or suburban family, chances are you'll love a pugel dog. Often spelled puggle, the pugel dog is a cross between a pug and a beagle, and combines all the best qualities of both. The hybrid pugel dog is friendly, mild and playful - but that's just one of the many reasons that pugel dogs make great pets for a Anchorage AK family.
Pugels Are Playful
In general, a pugel dog inherits the mild, friendly nature of a pug and the energetic playfulness of a beagle. They are affectionate dogs who love to play and get along well with children. That means they aren't snappy or nervous, so you don't have to worry about your children when they're around a pugel dog.
Pugels Are Affectionate
Few dogs are more affectionate and loyal than beagles, and a pugel dog inherits that friendly, loving nature from its beagle parent. He'll probably be sociable and enjoy being around people, making him an ideal pet for a Anchorage AK apartment or condo dweller.
A Pugel Dog Is Low Maintenance
Both beagles and pugs have short coats that are easy to care for. Your pugel dog won't require daily brushing and expensive trips to the groomer for trims and fancy haircuts. He'll be adorable without all that expense. Just give him a weekly brushing - or more often during shedding season. Other than that, your pugel dog won't require anything more than basic care - nail trimming every couple of weeks, cleaning and drying his ears and a good brush with vet-approved toothpaste and brush.
Pugels Don't Need Big Yards
Unlike bigger dogs and more energetic small breeds, a pugel dog has fairly low exercise requirements. They enjoy exploring, but they don't need a huge yard where they can run for miles. That's yet another reason that pugels make good city dogs - they're essentially indoor dogs, though they do enjoy a good romp in the park.
Pugel Dogs Are Adaptable
Pugels are highly adaptable. They'll be happy just about anywhere as long as you're there with them. They like new people, and a new home is just another great new place to explore. If you've been putting off adopting a dog until you have roots, that's not a worry for a pugel dog.
You can buy a pugel dog puppy from a breeder, or visit one of the many pet shelters in [statetitle] to adopt a pugel that has been abandoned. Either way, you're sure to find an adorable, kid and cat-friendly pet who will rapidly become a member of your family.
