Puggles have a great temperament. They are very sweet, playful, affectionate and social. They have a lot of energy and absolutely love to play. However, they also love to have their downtime. The Puggle makes a great lap dog; it loves to cuddle up with people. It tends to enjoy playing for a bit, but it quickly tires for a nap. It also gets along great with children and other pets. This dog seems to take the best qualities from both the Beagle and the Pug. Furthermore, Puggles are very low maintenance. All they need is an occasional bath, nail clipping and ear cleaning.
Training Puggles can be a bit slow because they are so hyper and playful. However, these dogs are eager to please and will learn with consistent training. Some Puggles will howl occasionally; they get this from the Beagle side of them.
Puggles are mid-sized dogs which make great housepets. Their size makes them perfect for living in an apartment, but they do need more exercise than other apartment dogs. It is a very sweet tempered, playful dog and makes a great companion. This dog is recognized by the ACHC (American Canine Hybrid Club).
