I've grown up with Chihuahuas. I got my first one about 4 years ago and since that shes had two liters of pups. My dad kept one of the first ones. He was a long hair and we all loved him very much. Just last friday he got hit and dad is so upset over it so we're trying to get a male long hair to breed with Misty, my dog. Wish me luck sammie
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.
Jay - 2016-06-13 My Pugwawa or Chug is just turning 8 weeks old and whenever he has his formula he drinks all of it. he is really exited when we get home from school and he is very hyper he loves his squeaky toy and to chew and pull on my ear for some reason but he is very cute and he has little wrinkles on his face. and he really like to charge into our mirrors, he also likes to crawl under our couch. he also likes to play in my room he really loves it when my dad picks him up and holds him, and he doesn't really like it when you rub his tummy but when he is not in his play mood he like to give me kisses on my face,and he is really small right now.
Raji - 2016-06-04 Hi Robin Murray, My Chug is also a finicky eater. Try this: Add a tablespoon or two of wet food into her kibble with each meal (mix it well enough so the wet food is completely mixed with the kibble). It doesn't take much, and she will finish her entire meal in one sitting instead of grazing and picking at her food. I use Nutro's Small Breed Adult for my dog's wet and dry foods. She loves them and we have had great results with this method. Good luck! ***Lucy's FurMomma***

arlene - 2014-01-28 Hi, i have a chug tht my father rescued from the garbage disposer he brought her to me when she was 3mths old..my daughter named her beauty.. she is very playful and loves my daughter but unfortunately my daughter has asthma and lately beauty been shedding so much hair and im afraid im gonna have to give her away..it breaks my heart because i already have a year with her and i love her so much..so im writing here to see if this is normal for a chug and if anyone has any remedy or suggestons on what to do.. i know my daughters health comes first but when my daughter hears we giving her away she starts to cry my daughter has no siblings so beauty is her best friend.. :(
Clarice Brough - 2014-01-28 She sounds like a great pet, and I would try to alleviate the problem rather than anything else. Because of their heritage they are big shedders. You can't prevent her from shedding but regular grooming can help reduce the amount of hair that falls out. Regularly brush your chug to help remove loose hair. Bathing once a month will help also, but too much bathing can cause dry skin. Still you can use a wet towel and rub your chug's fur. The damp towel will also catch loose hairs.
Anonymous - 2014-01-28 thank you clarice..i will do that.
arlene - 2014-01-28 Thank you clarice, I will do that.. so chugs are big shedders..ohno!!! :'(
Alana - 2014-03-27 Hi Arlene. Before you get rid of your beloved dog, know that it is normal for Pugwawas to be shedders. They lose hair frequently, but if you brush them daily and wash them once every 2 or 3 weeks, they usually are just normal shedders. Do not get rid of your dog; it sounds like your daughter needs her in her life. Best of luck to you, Alana.
Barbara Maycott cash - 2014-06-27 Use flax seed oil. In her food. The SHEDDING WILL STOP. I HAVE AN ENGLISH BULLDOG. HER SHEDDING HAS subsided tremendously. Get it at walmart in the vitamin Area. It's a green bottle. It's only $6 .. In two weeks you'll see a HUGE DIFFERENCE.
mike - 2014-09-03 Barbara could you expand the use of flax seed oil by telling us how much you use and how often,
Ms CJ - 2016-02-20 I rescued my chug now 2 yrs old. I had allergies from her but taking my allergy pills helped me to overcome the allergies. Chugs do shed a lot but I brush my girl every day with a strong thicker type hair brush. Brush every day in the same place. For ex. bathroom or area that your daughter doesn't go in. My niece had & badly abused the little dog. I agreed to take her & find her a good home. Well as u can tell the good home became mine 10 months ago.
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.
