Transcript of Puggle (dog)

By Ruby Rio :D Introduction The puggle is a cross bread dog,
it's a mix between a pug and beagle. This presentation is on the puggle and why we should get a dog let alone a puggle. Other Presentation I know I have done a presentation on dogs already, but this presentation focuses on the puggle more than a dog, although it does have some aspects about getting a dog. Why a dog? The main reasons we should get or adopt a dog are:
•Dogs force you to get out there and exercise
•They protect your house from intruders
•Studies have shown dogs help reduce stress and lower your blood pressure.
•Dogs are shown to cheer you up in as little as 10 seconds Appearence of the puggle :) The Appearance of a Puggle
The majority of Puggles look like the description below:
Weight: Ranges from 8 to 13 kilograms
Height: Ranges from 30 to 35 cm at the shoulder
Fur: Short
Fur Colour: Tan
Tail: Sort of sticks up with a curl-like motion
Ears: Their ears droop down (so adorable)
Snout: Black-ish and either long or medium Other Features Other relevant features to the Puggles are below:

Personality: The puggle has a fun-loving personality and cute looks. He gets along with kids and other dogs, and can make a great family pet. Puggles will bark, but they are intelligent and loving companions. Like all dogs, Puggles need to explore early and meet many different people, sights, sounds, and experiences. Experiences help ensure that your Puggle puppy grows up to be a well-rounded dog.

Lifespan: Puggles live for around 10 to 15 years

Trainability: Puggles are some-what easy and hard to train. Although they excel with intelligent, they dislike being trained and tend to bark. Puggles are hard to train because of their habit of getting distracted.

Grooming: Puggles are ridiculously easy to groom. They tend to love being groom and they barely shed or drool.
Friendliness: Puggles are extremely friendly, especially towards kids

Exercise: Puggles are playful and do like going out for exercise. 30 minutes of exercise per day is enough for puggle. Puggle (luckily) are not vigorous. They don’t do things with great strength or run straight through obstacles.

Health: Puggles do tend to put on weight so they do need to exercise. They can come with a wide range of diseases that belong to either the beagle or the pug. The diseases a Puggle can pick up are respiratory problems (Pug), stubbornness (Pug and Beagle), tendency to wander (Beagle), howling (Beagle), hip dysplasia (both), and eye problems (both). Majority of these are treatable and can be cured. Others like howling are gentic and you cant get rid of them.

Feeding: Puggles should have up to 1.5 cup of high quality dog food per day and that food should be split up into two meals. Puggles enjoy their meals and can easily become obese. Don’t leave food out all day; instead serve them two meals a day
Relationship towards humans: The Puggle is generally a well behaved dog who gets along well with children of all ages. Never be rough towards a puggle, because they will bite you.

Other things: Puggles can suffer from separation if they are separated from their owner for a long period of time because they are companion animals. Puggles adapt to any kind of environment, from an apartment with no backyard, to a house or a mansion, so it doesn’t really matter what type of house you live in. Puggle can make an excellent companion to anyone, including first-time dog owners, and will do well with children of all ages. They are friendly towards other pets, especially dogs. Puggles are smart, but they can be stubborn. Train them with positive reinforcement techniques, such as food rewards, praise, and play.

Bathing & Cleaning
We can wash our dog at the dog wash machine thingy up the road. Bathe them every week. We can go to a pet specialist for nail clipping and ear cleaning as they probably know the best way to do it and without annoying the dog. Where can we buy the puggle and how much are they? We can buy/adopt a puggle from the RSPCA, or a
well-known and trusted breeder. We can ask people
we know who own dogs, where they got theirs from. We do have to be careful where we buy it because some breeders get puppies from puppy mills and tend to be mutts. That means they turn vicious and attack people and others.

A puggle from a shelter is anywhere from $50 - $200 and a puggle from a breeder or a pet store (not advisable) is round about $300 - $600 When to get it? We should get it for Christmas :) Costs Here I will place all of the cost for food to furniture for the puggle Food Costs The Puggle Some of the food a puggle would eat are: (note, Puggles will not need the exact brand)

1 year – 45 minutes per day
All vaccinations
For a puggle frequent walks and playing in yards or parks will be plenty. What do we do with the dog when we are away? It is suggested that when you are away for a short period of time (2-3 days) that you put your dog in a dog kennel. If you are away for longer period of time (4+ days) that you find a dog sitter.

We could place our dog in a kennel, and the people who could maybe take our dog and look after are John and Maria or Mark and Jacinta. The End :D Total Cost The total cost for a puggle and all of the supply, furniture, etc. from a shelter in $627
A puggle from a trusted and well known breeder with all the supplies is around $887
