We just lost our 14 1/2 yr old longhaired sweetie pie 3 weeks ago. She was potty trained within a week, was not a barker and loved to cuddle. She was a huge part of our life and we miss her soo much! She stole the heart of everyone she came into contact with, young and old. We live in Pennsylvania and are looking for a sweet little long hair female in Pa, ohio, New York area. Can anyone help.

The Chug is a mixed dog breed, a cross between a Chihuahua and a Pug. Chugs are lively and loyal companions. They are very affectionate and expect lots of attention. They may or may not tolerate strangers or other pets and animals, and though they usually do well with children they may or may not be the best pet for young ones. They do, however, tend to make good watchdogs. When selecting a Chug, look for eye and respiratory problems.
Breed Type The Chug is a mixed breed. A cross between a Chihuahua and a Pug, the Chug is a popular hybrid.
Background The Chug has a short history, but it has already become one of the most sought-after hybrids around. Most breeders produce only first generation crosses to preserve the health of the Chug.
Description Chugs come in many different colors. Their muzzles are longer than the Pug's but more blunt than the Chihuahua's. They may have short or medium length hair. Their ears are often short and floppy. Sizes vary, but Chugs are always relatively small.
Care and Feeding The Chug needs a nutritious diet and it must be fed lightly to prevent obesity. Chugs are easy to groom. Occasional brushing and as-needed baths should be sufficient. Be sure to dry your Chug quickly after bathing, and take special care to get the ears dry. Chugs need regular checkups to stay healthy. Vaccinations are due as follows:
Some Chugs shed heavily. Regular vacuuming is essential during shedding periods.
Housing Your Dog Chugs should live indoors, and they do well in apartments. They have a hard time adjusting to extreme temperatures, especially cold ones.
Social Behaviors Chugs usually do well with children, but they may not be the best type of dog for young ones. They may or may not be tolerant of strangers and other dogs and pets.
Handling and Training Chugs are very smart, but they may be stubborn when it comes to training. It is important to be firm yet gentle for best results.
Activities Chugs need daily walks and play sessions to keep them happy and healthy. But it is important not to overwork them due to their tendency toward respiratory problems.
Breeding/Reproduction The fact that they come from parents of two different breeds makes most first generation Chugs very healthy. But if you breed a Chug with another Chug, it is important to check bloodlines of both your dog and any potential mate for hereditary illnesses. Eye and joint problems, and Pug Dog Encephalitis, are some of the more prevalent disorders to look for.
Common Health Problems First generation Chugs rarely have serious health problems. Of those that do, they usually consist of eye problems and respiratory difficulties. Your veterinarian can determine the best treatment for these ailments.
Availability Chugs may be difficult to find in some areas, but their growing popularity is making them easier to locate. Prices vary.
Joy - 2014-11-27 I just got two chug puppies. I got two so they could be together and plus they would never come apart. At first my mom only one but we agreed two would be best. One is her's and one is mine. There were six in the litter. My moms friend told us about them and on 11/28/2014 the puppies are going to get there first checkup. Mine has a little more Pug then Chihuahua. I got the fluffiest and biggest one. I did not get it because it was big and fluffy. I got it because it bonded with me and the other one bonded with my mom. I think the two will love it at there new home (my house). I got another dog since my other got stolen by his original owner. He said we could have him but then took him while we were on vacation. I was heartbroken for a while since he was my best friend. My mom hated seeing me like that so she said we could go get a puppy (yet we got two). The chugs are so cute and i think i made the right choice for a dog. I have started doing research because they are coming home tomorrow ( today is 11/27/2014 ).
Jane Dobos - 2014-11-09 I own a 9 year old pugwawa Hubble and he's a sweetie pie. He loves to go with me to work each day and he lives with his best friend Kaiser a golden/chow.He is my very first sm.dog I have always owned a breed that weighs around 45 to 50 lbs. And he loves to play tug a war. We love both our dogs i buy them blue buffalo dog food and make sure they go see the Dr. once a year. I LOVE MY BOYZ
Clarice Brough - 2014-11-13 What a great couple of dogs, and some great humans you are too:)
Amy - 2014-11-01 My baby is a 5 year old Chug named Winston Churchill who was a rescue from our humane society. He has been super healthy his whole life until the last few months. He has been having serious itching problems on his lower back and around his tail. We thought it may be fleas and treated that issue, but the itching is worse, especially at night. The worst part is that because of his mix he can't reach his back to itch himself so he does the itchy butt dance (funny at first but now I'm super worried). Does anyone know what this could be or what we can do for him??
Amy - 2014-11-02 Thank you! After posting this I spoke with my sister whose dog had similar issues and the vet prescribed steroids to alleviate the irritation. We are taking him for a check up next week and I'll post the results for others to see in case anyone has a similar problem with their baby too. We don't have childrenn so little Winston is like our son and I know many other families feel the same about their pets too. Thanks again for the help!!
Clarice Brough - 2014-11-02 Dry skin and itching problems can come from dietary allergies, fleas, bacterial infections, product specific allergies, or possibly a medical condition called seborrhea. It would be a good idea to get a check up by a vet to either identify the problem or help reduce the possiblities.
Anonymous - 2014-05-12 I just purchased a Chug pup. She is 10 weeks old. I am trying to train her to go outside to do her business. I am finding this to be very hard. how long does it usually take to train them?
Amy - 2014-11-01 My Winston had this problem too. I found that he refused to go when he was hooked to his leash, but once I took it off he went just fine. I know that removing the leash could be an issue for some with leash laws and such but just thought I'd share our success story if it may help! :-)
Carolyn - 2012-04-08 I have 2 beautiful girls. They are the light of my life. I may want to breed my older Chug but around here they are all related. Is there male out there close? Oklahoma.
Cynthia - 2012-05-08 Hello Carolyn, I have a male Chug and everyone stops me too. I would love to breed him, but unfortunately I am in Everett, WA. Did you get information breeding 2nd generation Chugs? I am trying to find information on line but can't seam to find any. Let me know!
Julia - 2012-05-29 I am in Dallas and I have a male chug!!
Mary Schannen - 2012-07-02 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.
Liz - 2012-11-09 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!
