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 - 2014-10-26 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.
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,
Deborah Buckingham - 2014-08-12 I have a beautiful year and a half old Puguawa girl. She's had a litter of adorable pups, the perfect mommy. well she's gonna be a mommy again. My concern is she sleeps a whole lot. ..She's only 3 weeks pregnant, is this normal?
Clarice Brough - 2014-08-13 Most dogs start to sleep a lot more when pregnant, usually it becomes most noticable about 2/3rd's of the way through pregnancy. Chugs have about a 63-day (9 week) gestation period, and some have been known to sleep alot throughout the entire pregnancy, so I wouldn't worry too much about it.
Heidi - 2013-10-24 I have a senior Chug rescued from a local Shelter. This baby started off very happy and very playful. After a week this poor baby has stopped being playful and sleeps constantly. She is not eating, and she continues to get sick not long after eating, but it is not food she is spitting up, it is bile. I have taken her to the emergency room and they said her blood tests show no problems. Please anyone, can you give advice to someone who knows nothing about caring for this little girl, she is so precious, and I fear I am losing her quickly.
J Barr - 2013-12-14 Possible food allergy. Will be a challenge but try starting with various forms of nothing but sweet potatoes for minimum of 10 days to see if any positive result. Resist temptation to add anything to make it more appealing!

KATHY - 2014-07-27 Try asking or taking her to the shelter where you got her. I would think that they would be familiar with her health, eating habits, etc.. Its at least worth the phone call, right? Best of luck with your Chug ... Hope all works out alright!!!
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!
