    We just brought home a male chi mix, (from the Animal Shelter) and after doing research - I'm convinced he is pug/chi mix. I too am from Dallas (just NE - Allen). We brought home this sweet little playful, loving boy from the shelter and now I'm discovering that it's considered a designer breed! I'll post pics if I can figure it out (just got here) and hopefully you can give me your opinions. He was a stray - but obviously has lived in a house before and used to being picked up. We think he's 4, - taking him to the vet today.

    My chihuahua just had chug puppies 8 weeks ago, two beautiful boys and two girls. Birthing them wasn't easy for her (my moms pug got ahold of her). Mama was a rescue who was badly neglected and ran away when her pups where only 5 weeks old. We hope she comes home. Originally I thought these chubby pups sucked her dry bc she didn't want to feed them in the end. In the meantime I have done my best to play mama duck since I'm home pregnant. They make bedrest bearable and are super easy! They are super smart, independent yet loyal, they snuggle so good and are adventurous in the most adorable way! Every where I go these puppies attract so much attention (my sons says they're chick magnets-lol). These are the smartest puppies I (or anyone) have ever seen by far! They burrow and 'protect' just like a chihuahua without the anxiety or yippyness! They picked up on potty training within 2 days and now they even sit (and I'm no expert dog trainer at all!). They have only had one accident between all of them, I'm amazed by how smart they are! Luckily I found a great home where both boys went together (couldn't keep them all witb a baby coming!) and I've decided to keep the girls;'Thelma' and 'Louise' even though I have so many ppl begging for one! They follow me like ducklings and are so attached to each other, they are great with my teacup chihuahua, kids and cats. Funny thing is I never planned on keeping any but thier personality won me over for life! I'm hooked! I might be interested in breeding them each once in the future, I live in auburn Washington, near Cynthia in Seattle ( if u dont mind waiting for them).I am also curious what a second generation might be like. Plus I have sooo many ppl wanting my girls and since I can't let go of them maybe I can hook them up with a great lifelong companion in the future! Best breed ever!

I have had "Hooch" for 3 years as I inherited him from an older family member who could not take proper care of him. He was so upset about the move he would not eat so I made him Meatloaf! It took a while for us to warm up to one another but he started sleeping with me under the covers and that was it! Now....... we are attached at the hip! He is so smart and a one woman dog! He only gets "barky" when someone comes to the door or approaches us on a walk. He is SOOOOOO affectionate & always by my side! I love him dearly and can't imagine life without my little red man with the floppy ears! ;-)

I bought a Chug about 4 weeks ago and she is absoloutley adorable. She is so friendly with everyone and everyone stops me, asks what she is and want to take her home. She is very clean and has had only a couple of "accidents", which was when we first got her. But even then she always used to go on puppy pads virtually all of the time but, now lets us know when she needs to go out so seems to be virtually house trained already (at 12 weeks).
All in all I think she is a very intelligent dog and seems to know what is acceptable and what is not in relation to biting and chewing. She has learned that chewing her toys is ok but she must not chew and bite people. She loves company and her walks and has such a great little personality.
I can highly recommend this hybrid breed as they seem to have the best of both dogs but without the individual breed problems.
A small full of charcter dog and I am so pleased I bought her.

My husband and I just adopted our 7 week old Chug last night. We've named him Emrys. He's the smallest dog I've ever had, but my husband has had a pug before. Little Emrys is joining our family of another dog, a Chow-Pei, and a Tortie cat.

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.
