I have a super tiny chug. For sale $300 LeAnn Dupre
I am looking to purchase or adopt a very young pom so that it can get used to my family and myself as it grows. I would like one closer to where I live, which is Waverly, TN. I am on a fixed income so cost is a concern, but this would be mostly for my companionship and travel buddy. I would prefer a female as I have a male dog already and he is not crazy about the male cats next door or male dogs that have visited. I thought I had one, but turned out to be a scam. Only serious sellers/adoptions contact please. Deloris

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.
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! :-)
Jamairmae - 2016-02-04 I rescued a chug puppy from going to the pound a week before this pass christmas. His former owner soon contacted me through her uncle, (my long time friend) wanting hm back. Her uncle was asked to take him to the pound for her, but came by my house on the way. He mention he was on his way to take his neice dog to the pound, that looked sorta like one of my dogs. I told him to bringg him to me, since he said he was a great dog. I am so glad I did, he if a beautiful and smart dog. His house manners needed work, but by using my old dog cage as a training tool, he quick corrected hs house manners. Mostly because he hated to be seperated from my dachshund. Lol. He just loves him and has come to love my maltese shih tzu mix as well. He loves to play with stuff toys and balls, something my other dogs no longer care to do. My advice is to get a training cage to discipline him when he mess in the house or refuse to go out, until he gives in to tge process. He will, trust me. But, only leave him in the cage for 15 minutes or so before you take him out to try again and again until he gets on board. Do not accept him going in the cage, he must be taught thats part of the house as well and off limit for bathroom breaks. Set up a time tontake him out every four hours if possible at the sametime, if possible. A set schedule will teach him how long he has to the next walk. At some point he will alert you when he wants to go, you must get up and take him asap. Until the house manners has been learned, keeping him in the he cage at when you are away and at night will help him adjust to a schedule. Also, putting his scent on his toys will encourage him to play with them instead of your things, as well as giving him rawhides or those plastic chew toys to chew on when needed. Goodluck and be patient but consistent with him. After all they are like raising children. Always need attention. Lol
Jamairmae - 2016-02-04 I named my rescue Winston also, after he would not take commands from me by his previous owner's given name. Once I changed his name he took to retraining by me very quickly. Please see my training advice in using a wire training cage. To prevent constant damage to your home, until he understands that he will not be put in it if he don't go inside. If, be does into the cage he should go til his next walk. If, he refuse to go, back in the cage he should go til he does go outside. Praise him and do not put him in the cage, unless its bedtime or you are leaving home. The cage is part of the house, so don't accept him going inside the cage either. You must give the act a name for him to associate with, I use "nasty". Lol If, I say who did nasty in house "the guilty one runs for cover". Lol I bring him to the scene of the crime and say "(dog's name), no nasty in the house!!" And take him outside, or put him into the training cage until its time for the next walk (if its close to going within a hour or so). They will hate being in the cage, its like putting a misbehaving child in time out. Never abuse the time in the training cage and only use it fir training and/or when you are away from home. Also, for bedtime doing training. Immediately upon returning home or waking up the dog should be let out of the cage and taken out to potty! Once he knows that will akways happen he will adjust to being caged and to holding his nasty til he is walked. Which will eventually translate to holding it for all his walks, as long as they are frequent enough and consistant. He wants to please you and receive your praise. Goodluck. Only took two weeks to retrain my chug to my home schedule. They are very smart dogs.
Leanne - 2014-05-28 Hi, I have a 2 year old chug who will not wee or poo outside especially when it's wet. I take him out all the time and still nothing. When it's dry he sometimes goes out by himself so I know that he knows what to do he's just lazy at times. He wees up the table and I've tried putting vinegar up it which is meant to make them not ewe there again but still no joy. When I take him outside when it's wet he just stands there and shivers!? Help he is wrecking my house!!
Jamairmae - 2016-02-04 Hi, as I suggested above, using a training cage works wonders. If he refuse to go out or go out and refuse to go, put him in the cage. Also, give the act a name, I call it "nasty", which covers both pee pee and poop. I have trained many dogs, my own and other people's. Example: "(his name), no nazty in the house!! (the cage is also referred to as tge house)" This is once you take him to the pee or poop make him smell it and give him the command, immediately take him outside and make him smell the ground and tell him to do his nasty. As he moves around keep telling him to do hus nasty. It, he don't do anything, put him in the cage until you are ready to walk him again. Repeat this step until he goes. Take him over to the spot and praise him, by saying something like "good boy/girl (dog name), you dud your nasty good boy/girl!!" Only use that praise term for training until the dog understands what you want. The dog will soon long for that praise and will do whats needed to earn it, after all pleasing you is its goal. Lol Am so, use a command for scorning as well, using the same technique of returning him to the scene of the crime to ensure he understands what he did wrong. Association and then comnand is they connect the dots in training. Never reward them with food for this type training, a belly rub, hug or praise will be enough. Treats I feel should be given as a occasional treat, not for praise for training. My opinion. Good luck.
Anonymous - 2014-10-26 I have a chug that I adopted the problem is I live in OR were if rains a lot. The problem is He won't go outside to potty because it wet and damp out. I'm afraid he will potty I'm the house What can I do. It wasn't raining today but won't go out. HELP WHAT DO I DO?
Clarice Brough - 2014-10-26 You may want to housetrain your dog to go to the bathroom indoors. Check around the web, as there's lots of information about indoor training available. It's usually done with paper spread on the floor or litter in a box or other type of container.
Maddy - 2014-12-19 I agree, I have 2 small breed dogs and they are easy to indoor train. We use potty pads and they go only on the pads. They were very easy to train and as long as you change the pads often it is not unclean or smelly.
Janice - 2015-09-04 I rescued a 1 yr old chug from a animal shelter and he is a good boy when he wants to be other time's he is chasing my 2 cat's and getting in the trash can in the bathroom. I have trouble getting him to go outside after it's rained and the back porch is wet. So I go out with him.

Amy Sheffler - 2014-12-19 My fiance rescued a pug from a No Kill shelter several years ago. He was so severaly abused he was missing almost all of his fur and he had fleas so bad he lost 1 of his eyes so my fiance named him Uno. He didn't know how to walk on grass or even play. He never barked, gave kisses, or jumped up to greet us. Sadly Uno passed away last year and my fiance was devistated to say the least, So when we came across the chug I knew I had to get him a Chug puppy! If any one could let me know of any puppies in the Pennsylvania are I would greatly appreciat it. Thank You.
