Description

The Pug-Zu is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Pug and the Shih Tzu. 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.

Lola the Pug-Zu at 11 months old— "She is a loving little dog, who is much loved and admired. We often get stopped by passersby asking what breed she actually is. She has fit into our family life with ease. Our son treats her as a little sister, although when she digs up the bulbs I've just planted in the garden to bury her little bones, I should be a little angry but I really see the funny side."
