Pugshire
(Pugshire Terrier)
 
Pug / Yorkie
Hybrid Dogs

 

The Pugshire is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Pug and the Yorkshire Terrier. 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.

"Here is my Pug / Yorkshire Terrier (Pugshire) at 4 years old. Bruno passed recently but he was an amazing dog. He was low maintenance and only shed a small amount. He would get about 3-6 walks a week. He liked to dig in the trash cans so we had to keep them up! He was a great cuddler, played with other dogs well, he stuck around the house when he was let outside, loved children, other dogs and all people. I feel that Bruno was an outstanding dog and very well balanced. He could go from sleeping/lounging to up and playing/running around. He loved the snow, and water on hot days. He was truly an amazing dog with a one-of-a-kind personality and will be greatly missed."

This is Cash my Pugshire puppy at 3 months old.

"This is Cash, my Pugshire puppy at 3 months old. He is a really smart, playful dog. The trick I think to these dogs is routine, consistency and time spent. He loves to play and go for walks. He is also very loyal; on a trip to the bush for a week at 4 months old he never took off for longer than 20 minutes or so, and always came back to see where we were. I do watch the Dog Whisperer and everything I have watched works, kennel training, potty training, eating habits, and dominance. He responds best to positive reinforcement; treats are not always needed—he just wants you to be happy with him. Everything I have tried from Cesar works in about a week of consistency and training. He was pretty much 90% housetrained by 3 months old and can do lots of tricks, walks well on a leash and listens to commands. I found with this playful, intelligent dog it is very important to get your dominancy asserted right away, ’cause he likes to challenge things, he needs to know who's boss. They're very cute like a baby, but remember they think like dogs."

Bandit, the Pugshire puppy at 5 ½ months old

Bandit the Pugshire puppy at 5 ½ months old—"His mom is a larger Yorkie and his dad was a Pug. He has grown to the size of a Pug with the looks of the Yorkie (and the temperament of a Yorkie!). The other pups from the litter look completely different. They look more like a Pug but the size of a Yorkie."
