The Puginese is a Pekingese/Pug mix. Both parents are pure breds.
They have a medium coat and expressive faces. Although black and tan with a black muzzle is the most common coloring, other color combinations are possible. The Puginese has a small, thick, compact build with a long body and short legs, weighing around 18 pounds. Their faces usually resemble the pug with short set noses on a wide head. This hybrid breed is strong, lovable, intelligent and well behaved with children and other pets. They enjoy human companionship and strive to please their owners. Males and females do not differ in temperament. Although they can be stubborn at times, they have lots of charm and a comical, fun-loving, easy-going temperament.
