Q:

How long do Puggles live?

A:

The typical lifespan for a puggle, a pug and beagle hybrid, is 10 to 15 years. Some health concerns to look out for are hip dysplasia, epilepsy, pinched nostrils and hypothyroidism.

Puggles are friendly and adapt well to home environments, but they often struggle to accept basic training and discipline. Puggles thrive in environments where they receive plenty of exercise and have ample social opportunities. These qualities make them a good fit in homes with kids. At least 30 minutes of regular daily exercise is important to the physical and mental health of puggles. Their active lifestyles may contribute to hip and leg injuries.
