A friend of a friend (against all my advice) went out and bought herself two $600 Puggles last year. Polly and Pippen are littermates and look like most Puggles, mostly puggy, but a medium brown color. Cute, but still BYB mutts. Well, you can guess what happened. Despite me telling them over and over to fix the dogs, Pippen got Polly pregnant. The puppies are now about 8 weeks old. Now, here comes the mystery. None of the puppies look like their parents. Every pup either looks like a pure beagle or a pure pug. No variation, no tricolor pugs or fawn beagles. They look just like grandma and grandpa must have. Does anyone know why? Is it in the genes that an F2 cross will look nothing like an F1? The best part? I got asked if it would be wrong to sell the puppies as purebred beagles and purebred pugs. She gave that idea up when I asked what people would think when they saw the obvious mixed breed nursing the babies. She claims Polly is going to be spayed after she weans them, but I'll believe it when I see it.
