Two Jug dogs are standing and sitting on a brown Pergo floor and a tan throw rug in front of a brick fireplace next to a person in a red shirt.

Jugs (Pug / Jack Russell mix) Loki and Dante — "This is Loki (red collar) and Dante (brown collar). Loki is 2 years old and Dante is 1 year old in these pictures. Loki weighs about 28 lbs. and Dante weighs about 20 lbs. We call Dante “Loki’s Mini Me.” Loki is from a Humane Society in Richmond, VA. Dante was bought from a pet store then given up by the owner after only a couple of months. These two dogs get along great and love playing together for hours on end. They both have the energy of a Jack Russell, but they also can calm down and cuddle like a Pug. They especially love sleeping under the covers with their heads on the pillow. The one unfortunate thing about these two dogs is that they both have hip dysplasia and will need surgery in the future, but it doesn’t slow them down."

A brown brindle with white English Boston-Bulldog puppy is sitting in grass looking up.
