I bought a Chug about 4 weeks ago and she is absoloutley adorable. She is so friendly with everyone and everyone stops me, asks what she is and want to take her home. She is very clean and has had only a couple of "accidents", which was when we first got her. But even then she always used to go on puppy pads virtually all of the time but, now lets us know when she needs to go out so seems to be virtually house trained already (at 12 weeks).
All in all I think she is a very intelligent dog and seems to know what is acceptable and what is not in relation to biting and chewing. She has learned that chewing her toys is ok but she must not chew and bite people. She loves company and her walks and has such a great little personality.
I can highly recommend this hybrid breed as they seem to have the best of both dogs but without the individual breed problems.
A small full of charcter dog and I am so pleased I bought her.

My husband and I just adopted our 7 week old Chug last night. We've named him Emrys. He's the smallest dog I've ever had, but my husband has had a pug before. Little Emrys is joining our family of another dog, a Chow-Pei, and a Tortie cat.

I have a chug that will be 3 n october, his name is jack. He is the light of our lives! However he does have quite a temper at times! Is this common in chugs? Just curious if this is common.

    I have 2 chugs that just turned 3 in July, a boy, and a girl. My Barney, goes crazy every time someone comes to the front door. It's as though, he's a completely different dog. His temper changes and he growls, barks, and won't let you come near him until he sees who it is, then he calms down. But as far as temper towards us and our friends, he's a sweet heart, and has never turned on me.

    You would be able to tell if he is overweight. This pup is a little guy and I don't know if he would require being fed twice a day or not. You might want to have him checked for worms - just in case. Little dogs frequently eat like they are starving and this is a little pup.
    Ask your vet about feeding twice a day - and also check for worms.

My little chugs name is Snicker Doodle. I got her at 3 months old. Her mother was a pug and the father was a chihuahua. They were both show dogs when the puppies were born. Snickers was the runt they did not think she would live. I work at a hotel and when groups would come with their show dogs I fell so in love with them. One lady told me they had a new dog called chug pugs. I had to go on the internet to find out what they looked like and fell so in love with the dog. I told her I would buy one from her. I thought she forgot about it when she left hotel but a month or two later she called and said she was on her way back and did I still want one. I was so pleased. Then she said it's a girl. They have named her because they did not think she would live but she's fine and she was litter box trained before I got her and the owner gave her to me free. Snickers is so smart she's now 8 yrs old and still great. She got a little over weight but has been corrected. Health problems.... Snickers has three lumps on her body the doctor has checked them there is no pain. She's very frisky and loves everyone she meets Chugs are great but if the Chihuahua has long hair it can be alot of shedding.

    I have a chug and I know what you are talking about but do not no why so if any one knows why thay always feel hot or warm to the touch??
  • Charlie Roche - 2011-07-20
    A dogs body temperature is noramlyy 105 degrees and outs is only 98.6. The Chug is going to feel warm because of that. Also, the fur is extremely short and close to the body, so he feels sorta like a heating pad on low as there is no fur to insulate the body temperature from our hand. Strange though.

i bought a chug about 3 weeks ago. His names Simba and he's 11 weeks. For such a little dog he isn't half wild lol. He's such a loving dog when he's tired but so hyper active when he's awake. Does anyone know if I should be worried becuase he seems to shake and jump alot in his sleep? Thankyou.

    I think many pups do this. They are dreaming - probably chasing bears or something.
