"Lu Lu is a Cairn Terrier / Pug mix. Her parents were both purebred dogs; her mom is a fawn Pug, and her dad is a fawn Cairn. She is a very tough little dog who enjoys lounging for most of the day."

Description

The Pugairn is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Cairn Terrier 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.
