Where to get Frengle Puppies
You’ll be able to find this designer dog anywhere you can adopt dogs, but it might be tricky. For instance, you can call your local animals shelter or rescue organization to see if they have Frengle puppies, adults, or seniors available for adoption. They might also have mixed breeds of that dog with another breed or two. Regardless, you’ll get a new furry friend while saving a dog’s life. Frk_hops…
If you want to get a true Frengle puppy and know where it came from, you can go through a reputable breeder. However, this dog breed is not recognized by the American Kennel Club, so you won’t be able to find ethical breeders through the AKC Marketplace.
You can research it yourself and be able to tell a good breeder from the rest because they’ll do the following:
- Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
- Ensure the puppies are up to date with all of their vaccinations
- Want to meet with you in person to get to know you and allow you to meet the parents and the litter
- Be able to answer all of your questions about the process, the breed as a whole, and the breeder’s experience and reputation
- Health screen and genetically test the dogs before breeding to ensure it’s safe (then get the puppies tested)
In addition, they’ll keep the dogs and puppies in their home, treating them like family. Also, they’ll have health documents and family tree history available for you to bring home upon adoption.
If you come across a breeder that does not do the above, then they are most likely a backyard breeder or a puppy mill. Avoid them as they are more interested in making a profit rather than finding the puppies good homes. Also, they don’t breed the dogs under healthy or safe conditions.
The average cost of this dog breed is between $200 and $700. The price may change depending on the breeder’s location, the breed’s popularity, the time of year, or the number of puppies in the litter. If you go through a shelter or rescue, the cost might be lower. Viggo…
Frengles are small to medium dogs that can grow about eight to 15 inches tall and weigh between 18 and 30 pounds. They also have a short and smooth coat that can come in many colors, such as:
- Solid or Mixed Variations of Black or Spotted
The Frengle is an excellent dog to have as part of the family. They’ll be perfect for families with children, seniors, or singles. For example, they’re loyal and affectionate with their family members. They’re great with young children, great around other dogs, and they’re great around strangers. However, they will need early training and early socialization, like any other dog. Luna…
Luckily, this breed is easy to train. However, they can be stubborn at times, but once you show them that you’re the boss, they’ll learn right away. In addition, this dog breed loves to chew. So, that’s unwanted behavior you’ll want to nip in the bud right away.
Overall, the Frengle is calm and gentle. However, if they take after their Beagle parent more, they’ll have loads of energy. They can live well in an apartment but might prefer to have a bigger house with a fenced-in yard where they can burn off their energy. Also, they’ll need a good 30 to 60 minutes of playtime and exercise per day.
Frengle Puppies – Veterinary Needs
As with all dogs, you’ll want to bring your Frengle puppy to the vet a couple of times during their first year. You’ll be able to track their growth and development and also keep them up to date with their shots and boosters. Then, for every year after that, you can bring them to the vet once a year for their annual checkup. Cooper…
Frengles have an average lifespan of about 12 to 15 years with proper care. They are known to get some health issues from their parents, though. For example, they are prone to getting the following:
With the approval of your vet, you can give your Frengle any dog food that’s appropriate for their breed size, age, weight, and metabolism. For example, this can be high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food. Fifi…
Due to their short coat, grooming is minimal. However, you’ll want to give them a bath once in a while to ensure they don’t smell and keep them as clean as possible. Also, they might shed a good amount, thanks to the Beagle, so you’ll want to brush their coat at least once a week. Also, be sure to keep up with trimming their nails, brushing their teeth, and cleaning their ears regularly.
