  • Overview

  • Chug is a designer crossbreed between the Chihuahua and the Pug and it was originally produced in the USA in the early 2000s. Chug’s personality is like being goofy, running around all the time, or being loyal. This breed is very cuddly and playful but on the other hand it can be very territorial as well. Chug is a great watchdog; he will alert you at any time when he feels something suspicious. This breed doesn’t fit into a family with small children because, due to their tiny size, they can get hurt easily by excited children. With early socialization, Chugs can get along well with other pets if they are introduced to each other calmly and slowly. This silly goofball breed has a high energy level, so make sure they get enough daily walks and playtime. The size of the Chug is about 10 to 14 inches, and its weight is between 10 and 20 pounds.

  • Pug

    Pugs have a very amusing, distinctive look, with their adorable face wrinkles, bulging eyes, curly tail and pushed-back noses. Originally bred as companion dogs, Pugs have flourished as a breed for thousands of years. Throughout the centuries, Pugs have certainly retained their charming personalities and cheerful dispositions, and make perfect family dogs. They are always eager to be near their families and to please them in any way they can. These small-sized dogs are only somewhat active and therefore do well in living spaces small and large.

  • Chihuahua

    Chihuahuas are the smallest dog breed in the world, and are one of the oldest as well. They are ideal lap dogs, with loving and sweet personalities. Chihuahuas tend to attach quickly and strongly to their owners, and do best with older children because of their delicate bone structure and small size. These loyal, sassy dogs come in two varieties (smooth coat and long coat), and typically have a medium energy level that is perfect for living in either a home or an apartment.
