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.

    They are cute. Seems to combine the best of both breeds.

    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.

i bought a chug about 3 weeks ago. His names Simba and he's 11 weeks. For such a little dog he isn't half wild lol. He's such a loving dog when he's tired but so hyper active when he's awake. Does anyone know if I should be worried becuase he seems to shake and jump alot in his sleep? Thankyou.

    I think many pups do this. They are dreaming - probably chasing bears or something.

Our chug is just the sweetest thing in the world. Won't sit or sleep alone so be prepared. He was very difficult to potty train tho, but finally got it! We wouldn't trade him for anything!

    Hello, We have a 9 month old chug. I noticed in your comments you said your chug was hard to potty train. Any suggestions??? Carly doesn't like to go outside and when she does she is so distracted with what is going on that it takes her forever to go!

I have a beautiful Chug that I got when she was 7 weeks old. She is now 12 weeks old. I love my Chug very much. I notice ever since I have gotten her, she is always very warm. There are times when I pick her up, her body feels very warm or hot. Does anybody know if this is normal for my Chug? Please let me know. Thank you.

    Yes this is normal. Toy breeds used to be used as foot warmers back in ancient times and they still run at a pretty warm temperature now!

    Good choice for a chug. What would you call him or her? You are lucky that you might get another dog.
    I have a puppy too. It's a spoodle called beckham. He's new and almost one! I hope you have fun with your dog(s).
  • rebecca - 2011-02-05
    You have to remember, that if there's any chance the new pup could get bit it would almost definitely be deadly, most people don't know that chives have a soft spot on their head their whole life, it comes from the chi side, we breed chugs but our first litter, my other dog bit one of the puppies in the head and pierced his brain, the vet said to put him down, but I felt guilty, and we found a doc at Cornell that performed a brain operation, it took week but he healed 100% with just a scar left. I just wanted to let you know, it will always be a risk. But good luck and I'm sorry for your loss.

Hi, I'm sorry about your dog. I adopted my Chugs @ the Humane Society. JZ is tan. Lyzy is blk/wht. They both very energetic, playful,& cute. When I got them they were 2 mos. old. Now, they're 8 mos. old. They're stubborn @ time but patience also helps. I learned how to train them from the internet. I let them play in the back yard and walk them almost every day. It's fun to watch them play with each other, hide 'n' seek, chasing the ball or toy... I think you can check it out @ the Humane Society in your area.

I have a Chion that was rescued from a Puppy mill when he was 2 years old. He was kept in a cage all his life. He is a lovely and affectionate dog despite all the problems caused by these terrible people.

Be warned...these dogs do bark at lot. They are very protective. And PLEASE make sure you are not supporting a puppy mill when you purchase your dogs. This breed can be found at shelters and rescues around the world!.

    I also rescue a Chion from a shelter, and she is very lovable four months puppy. We feel very luck in adopting her. Until now she doesn't bark a lot, but is very active.

    Just rescued a Chion and he is very, very shy. Not with me anymore...I took 2 whole days to bond with him. It's only been 3 days now and already he's let my OLDER children pet him. Yes, he barks...but not continuously and is a real sweetheart and snuggler. I think this is a wonderful breed! And I adopted him! Didn't buy him! There are alot of these wonderful little dogs out there that need homes.

My friend has a chorky. She's cuter than the one on the front page of chorkies.

We have a chug named Nugget. We got him when he was 8 weeks old and now he is almost 2 yrs...He is the most adorable dog with his stunning green eyes and cute little brown nose. He is about 8lbs and favors his chihuahua mother. He is so michievious but we wouldn't have him any other way. He loves to snuggle and burrow down under the blankets and sleep all cuddled up to me. He is very adventurous and loves to explore outside and loves to sun himself on the sidewalk. He gets along well with other animals but he does like to nip fingers and noses. I would recommend a chug as a pet for anyone.
