Pug mix is a cross between a Pug and another breed. Nowadays a term designer dog is wildly used to name hybrid dogs that have been selectively bred. Most known Pug mixes can be called designer dogs, for they represent a combination of their parents' particular features and thus often look even more attractive than purebred dogs. Types of Pug Mixes All mixed-breed dogs differ from their parents by size, color and shape.
Pugs usually transmit flat muzzle and curled tail to the Pug mixes. There are three of them, which are considered to be the most popular and attractive. Chug is a hybrid of a Chihuahua and a Pug. This Pug mix is very charming. It is small and more refined than a Pug. Ears and curly tail are covered with gentle fuzz, or the whole body may have long hair.
The muzzle is very nice, it has become round and elongated, with big convex eyes and sympathetic look. In general, the appearance has become more interesting. Besides that, Chugs are amazingly friendly, for both parents are known as good companions for their owners.
Pugle, a mix of a Pug and a Beagle, turns to be also very alluring. They are approximately of the same size as Beagles, with short sleek coat and funny curled tail. Again, it is wonderful clever eyes and numerous wrinkles that prettify these Pug mixes and make them look pathetic.
As Beagles are hound dogs, Pugles are very brave, curious and devoted to their owners. The third type is a Bugg a hybrid of a Pug and Boston Terrier. These Pug mixes seem to have a head of a Pug and a body of a Terrier. Their legs are rather long, the body is strong and sound. The muzzle is very charming: it is rather flattened, which makes the dog breathe with its mouth and thus look as if it is smiling at you.
Buggs are very lively and good-natured Pug mixes. Advantages of a Pug mix As you have noticed, a diversity of appearance may be a real advantage. Pug mixes attract attention, for they are unusual, funny and very handsome. The variety of colors has also increased, as Pugs are usually silver, black or apricot and the new dog breeds make Pug mixes also red, tan, tricolor and even calico. Another benefit of Pug mixes is that they are considered to have better health than purebred dogs. It is proved that all mix-bred dogs are prone to many genetic diseases typical to this or that particular dog breed.
Therefore hybrids are stronger, sturdier and healthier. The result of such stamina is superiority of Pug mixes in such dog sports as dog agility, frisbee, obedience, flyball and other. They show great dexterity, quickness and cleverness, which help them to excel.
So if you want to have a dog, that will be healthy, uncommonly pretty and devoted to you, a Pug mix is a suitable variant.
