The Chug is a mixed breed dog–a cross between the Chihuahua and the Pug. Playful, loyal, and small, the Chug has some of the best traits of both of their compact, loving parents. Chugs go by several other names, like the Chihuahua Pug mix, Pughuahua, and Pugwawa. Even though they’re sometimes unfortunately thought of as a designer dog, the good news is there are plenty of Pug Chihuahua mixes available for adoption. You can always check a breed-specific rescue if you are specifically looking for a Chug. Remember to adopt! Don’t shop! Despite their tiny stature, these dogs have big personalities. They like to think that they are actually large dogs, and will act as such. Anyone who is thinking about getting this mixed breed should be ready for an energetic pup who requires a lot of attention. This makes them great family pets, but smaller children learn how to safely play with the small Chug. Fortunately, with some training, you can keep your Chug from getting too territorial, resource-guarding, or snapping if play with a tiny human accidentally gets too intense.
