(Pughuahua) (Chugg)

Chihuahua / Pug Hybrid Dogs

The Chug is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Chihuahua and the Pug. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Loki the Chug at 7 years old—"We rescued Loki when he was about 18 years old. He has a very definite Puggish personality. We joke that he has recently mastered the force. He can stare at the floor and food mysteriously leaps off of the counter to the spot he is looking at."


"Benji the Chug at 3 years old exploring Wales—we got Benji as a 5-month-old rescue. Despite his rough start to life, he never put a ‘paw’ wrong! We remain in awe of the fact that he is the first young dog we have owned who never soiled the house. It really highlights the fact that Chugs are indeed a type of dog that are exceptionally willing to please. Benji is a very sensitive type who loves harmony and peace in the household. He seeks to be with us at every opportunity, but has also benefited tremendously from his companion, Bella (a Chihuahua x Brussels Griffon). He loves to play with other dogs. Despite his small size and short legs, he is very keen to run and explore on walks and bike rides through the countryside."

Cletus, the Chug at 2 years old (Pug / Chihuahua hybrid)

"This is our Chug Cletus aka "our bubbie." He is 2 years old in this picture. His father is a fawn Pug and his mom, a cream Chihuahua. He is really playful and loves to sit on the couch with you and watch TV!! We gave him a teddy bear when we first brought him home and he still sleeps with it every night in his crate. Cletus loves the beach. He absolutely loves to run and play (and dig) in the sand. He is the size of a Pug, about 20 lbs. He is really friendly and loves children. We have both cats and dogs in our house and he gets along with everybody. Cletus is really smart—we have taught him some tricks and he loves to perform them for anyone who will watch (and give him a treat, of course!). We are really blessed to have Cletus in our family!!"
