I have a red heeler/husky mix. He's a little over a year. But He is a great dog to have. Before getting him when he was 3 months old I was so scared of dogs. But he's like my best friend now. He follows me around all day, and when I give my kids or my husband hugs he's right there trying to get a hug or rub to (it's so funny). But he loves to chew bones and his toys (I got him a new toy the other day and he destroyed it within 5 hours. My husband walks/runs him in the morning and I walk him in the evenings. He likes to play fetch on the stairs ( I throw his toy over the top of the stairs and he runs down and brings it back, he does it like 10-15 times before he gets tired). He loves people and thinks that when we have company they are supposed to rub and love him too.

    My compliments to you for getting a pup when you were afraid of dogs. So many are afraid of things and don't ever get the enjoyment because of fear. You overcame yours. Hats off to you

I have a chug that will be 3 n october, his name is jack. He is the light of our lives! However he does have quite a temper at times! Is this common in chugs? Just curious if this is common.

    I have 2 chugs that just turned 3 in July, a boy, and a girl. My Barney, goes crazy every time someone comes to the front door. It's as though, he's a completely different dog. His temper changes and he growls, barks, and won't let you come near him until he sees who it is, then he calms down. But as far as temper towards us and our friends, he's a sweet heart, and has never turned on me.

I want to buy a pomeranian but I'm not sure that it would be happy in a hot climate (Turkey)

I had a westie growing up. She was THE BEST dog ever! She was very loving and had such a personality! And though we didn't have cats when she grew up she had no problem in her later years when we did get one. I miss her dearly she lived until she was 17.

    They are good pups. Very intelligent, even tempered, not barkers, affectionate.

I have had pit bulls in the past, and still own two now. They are the epitome of what a dog should be. I encourage anyone that is interested in a dog that is loyal, energetic, and a good protection and family dog to get one.

    I think pitt bulls need and want very consistent and caring humans. They want to be with their humans but their humans need to teach them. They are energetic and full of vigor and strong and they need a human that is very consistent in expectations, training and loving. I think they got a bad rap (just like the dobie) but they need attention and care.

I actually use a q-tip to clean my pugs wrinkles. They work much better than anything else. They are very lovable dogs and love to snuggle. :D

We have a lovely tempered pair of Bull terriers, a white male named Hitler (3y) and Eva(2y), a brindle female. She had 2 puppies a week ago and only 1 survived. Do you think a small number of puppies like this is normal? They are both healthy dogs with more than enough energy, is it possible that something went wrong during the pregnancy? Her first batch was 5 puppies and only 2 survived, this is making me worry a bit.

    Have you talked to the vet? Do you know why the babies died? If not you might want to have the best determine the cause of death. The average litter for the bull is 5 but it is far from being unusal that they oinly have 1 pup. Is mom feeding the babies?

I have a 1 1/2 year old Chug and he eats like he is starving.. WHY? Is he lacking something..He is overweight..

    You would be able to tell if he is overweight. This pup is a little guy and I don't know if he would require being fed twice a day or not. You might want to have him checked for worms - just in case. Little dogs frequently eat like they are starving and this is a little pup.
    Ask your vet about feeding twice a day - and also check for worms.

My little chugs name is Snicker Doodle. I got her at 3 months old. Her mother was a pug and the father was a chihuahua. They were both show dogs when the puppies were born. Snickers was the runt they did not think she would live. I work at a hotel and when groups would come with their show dogs I fell so in love with them. One lady told me they had a new dog called chug pugs. I had to go on the internet to find out what they looked like and fell so in love with the dog. I told her I would buy one from her. I thought she forgot about it when she left hotel but a month or two later she called and said she was on her way back and did I still want one. I was so pleased. Then she said it's a girl. They have named her because they did not think she would live but she's fine and she was litter box trained before I got her and the owner gave her to me free. Snickers is so smart she's now 8 yrs old and still great. She got a little over weight but has been corrected. Health problems.... Snickers has three lumps on her body the doctor has checked them there is no pain. She's very frisky and loves everyone she meets Chugs are great but if the Chihuahua has long hair it can be alot of shedding.

    I have a chug and I know what you are talking about but do not no why so if any one knows why thay always feel hot or warm to the touch??
  • Charlie Roche - 2011-07-20
    A dogs body temperature is noramlyy 105 degrees and outs is only 98.6. The Chug is going to feel warm because of that. Also, the fur is extremely short and close to the body, so he feels sorta like a heating pad on low as there is no fur to insulate the body temperature from our hand. Strange though.
