 Japanese Chin / Pug Hybrid Dogs


The Japug is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Japanese Chin 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.

Japugs laying down, a purebred pug standing up

"The three dogs lying in the grass are Japanese Chin / Pug mixes. They are 10-year-old brothers from the same litter and their names are Bert, Ernie and Teddy. Their father, a purebred Pug named Pugsley is standing up in the picture. Their mother was a full Japanese Chin. They all have great temperaments, craving lots of love, companionship and belly rubs. They don't like excitement or loud people. They shy away from children, but love senior citizens. They don't tolerate long walks well, due to their short nose. They get winded after about 10 minutes. They are wonderful companions!"


Japug Puppies

"This picture was taken of my dogs Bert and Ernie when they were about 2 months old. Their father is a full-bred pug and their mother is a Japanese chin. They are well-mannered dogs with great temperaments. They don't like loud noises or loud children. They prefer snuggling up with me in peace and quiet. They crave human attention. I can't leave the room without them following right along!"
