Could Anyone Please Tell Me Where There Are Good Puggle Breeders In Scotland (preferably Near Glasgow). I Know All The Risks Affected With Bad Breeding And Designer Dogs And I Really Want A Good Breeder. I'm Willing To Pay A Higher Price For Quality.

It depends what you mean by quality. There are many very good mongrels aching for a good home with someone to care for them. Please consider adopting one of those "quality" dogs. Instaed of adding to the market for designer dogs.

Before I decide what dog I'm getting I will go to the rescue centre. I have decided that from an early stage. I'm meaning if I don't see the dog I want then I need to have a back up plan. Some of these dogs from rescue centres need special training etc. I already have another dog and I need to think of that dog. With a puppy I can socialize it from an early age with my dog. With an adult dog it will be harder. I was asking for breeder replys but thank you anyway.

Could you please explain what you think good breeding is? It makes the question extremely difficult to answer. The problem is that 'a good puggle breeder' would be an oxymoron by universal good breeding definition, guidelines and standards. There is a lot of information in the links below for you.
Someone breeding Pug/Beagle mixes is almost never going to meet the requirements for actually being a truly good breeder and the almost only comes in by discounting a few key and major points in the meaning of 'good breeder'.
The main requirement of being a good breeder and what it really means is breeding to improve your breed, a goal and a clear and well thought out plan to accomplish that (which requires a great deal of knowledge) and taking the necessary steps to do so. That isn't possible when breeding mixed breeds.
Someone that calls a mixed breed something other than what it is for sales purposes throws up another red flag in addition to breeding mixed breeds intentionally. Calling it a Puggle implies a breed which it is not, it is a Pug/Beagle mix and nothing more. Most have almost none of the elements you would look for in a good breeder.
There are many puppies to be found in shelter and rescue. If you want a mutt or a mix, that is the way to go in almost every case, not buying one. There is nothing wrong with a mutt or a mixed breed and not bad words and making up a name doesn't change what they are. The problem is with encouraging and rewarding the bad breeding that results in them and that has escalated the trend.
The majority of shelter and rescue pups can be traced back to things the breeder did or did not do or know as major contributors to the pet ending up in the shelter. Whether they come from the breeders hands directly or not isn't going to make a huge difference in a lot of those things. As far as the issues you are concerned a rescue pup may have, many of those usually relate back to the breeder and their breeding and placement practices so sooner or later isn't the issue and not all dogs in rescue are there for those reasons.
There are just way too many dogs being bred and placed irresponsibly and by people who breed for the wrong reasons and don't know much or enough about what they are doing. Some people just see them as disposable or quickly tire of them and the breeder didn't screen very well or make sure the pup needed to go back to them.
Almost all shelter animals are a result of poor breeding and placement practices. Very few dogs with major issues would make it through screening for adoptability without notes being made and special efforts for proper placement at a minimum. The new home environment plays a big role in what happens from there. Shelter or rescue dog rarely means bad pet for the right home and family. It usually means the breeder made some major missteps somewhere so why not skip the middle man if you're not making sure you are getting your pup from a responsible breeder.
If you want a good breeder you are much better off deciding on an actual breed and looking from there. Finding a truly good breeder of mixed breeds is almost impossible and difficult enough with pure breds. If you find someone you think may fit the bill or even get close you can shout me and we'll break it down and see what the good and bad signs are beyond breeding a mixed breed. :-) I had looked but couldn't find any near you.
I was able to find the listing for the breed parent club in Scotland for each (second and third link) but couldn't find a website for pugs. Both of the clubs here in the states have advisements about such cross breds (and also against code of ethics) and those are the fourth and fifth links for you. First link is how calling breeding a pug/beagle mix and calling it a Puggle originated (puppy mill). All the rest are about breeding, good and bad breeding ect. And most contain more links for you to check to help you out in your search for a puppy.
