Jugs are a playful, confident and happy breed. They have a robust nature, outgoing personality and minimal health issues when compared to the pure bred Pug. They are great with children and tend to get along well with other dogs, given they are properly socialised as a puppy.
Outgoing and sure of themselves, Jugs are affectionate individuals with a strong character. They are a very energetic breed, so will need firm and consistent training from their owners. Jugs make adorable, loving companions and are great little family dogs with huge personalities.
Jug Health Issues
Obesity: An excess of body fat, generally due to over nourishment and lack of exercise. More common in middle aged dogs, indoor dogs, dogs that have been neutered and food driven breeds.
Dry/Itchy Skin: Some dogs, especially those with a shorter coat, can be prone to dry, flaky and itchy skin. This can be helped by using an oatmeal based shampoo and conditioner. If this continues to occur it could be related to a food allergy or parasite, and should be seen by a vet.
Brachycephalic Airway Syndrome: A medical term that relates to multiple upper airway problems experienced in short-nosed, flat-faced breeds. These issues are due to the physical characteristics of these breeds, such as narrowed nostrils, an abnormally small windpipe or an overly long, soft palate.
