Re: Any one else got a Jug puppy?

Hope this works. Brian is the little Jug and Mutley is the big sleepy lab!

Re: Any one else got a Jug puppy?

I do hate these Designer Breed names.. "jug"... yuk lol And what an odd cross to do!

Is he a rescue/accident or did someone breed him intentionally?

As to how big he will grow, neither breed get very big at all so i imagine you could bank on it being a small dog!lol What it will end up looks and temperment wise is anyones guess though...

Good luck with your pup, looking forward to seeing some pics of him!

Re: Any one else got a Jug puppy?

He was bred intentionally. There are lots about. We chose this cross because we wanted a small dog that would be good with the kids bit would also be feisty enough to keep up with a big lab. We go out for lots of walks with the kids! I personally love pugs but worry about them having breathing difficulties with such a flat face. He is already snoring like a trooper!

So far he is great, and we hope he will carry on this way! After having a lovely big lab for nearly three years now we do find he can be a bit yappy and he certainty takes after the 'lapdog' aspect of the pug!

Re: Any one else got a Jug puppy?

Unfortunately the temperment problems are why an alarming number of "puggles" have ended up in rescue. You cross a dog with a very high work and prey drive (beagle) with a dog with a non-existant prey drive (pug) you end up with a very unbalanced dog. Its sad that people breed some of these crosses without thinking about anything other than how cute they work. And i have nothing against crosses, especially working ones like lurchers and the gundog crosses, but people seem to cross anything with a pug these days just to get a wrinkly face

Thats great that he's doing so well.

I have pugs, and I also have labradors and i can assure you my pugs have no breathing difficulties and can keep up with the labs on the longest walks Its a very sad misconception that all pugs are unhealthy, properly bred ones arent..

Re: Any one else got a Jug puppy?

We have bought him with the best of intentions. We spent a lot of time researching breeds before buying both our dogs and have also invested a lot of time and money training the big one which has paid off as he is a beautiful well mannered animal.

At the end of the day Brian is just a mongrel with a fancy name and many mongrel dogs that I know of have better health and temperaments than a lot of in-bred pedigrees that I know of. Our pedigree lab was in the vets before he was six months old with elbow dysplasia!

You take your chance with any dog!
