American Pugabull

INTRODUCTION

The American Pugabull is a mongrel dog, a cross between the American Bull Dog and Pug dog breeds. Medium-sized, alert and loyal, these puppies inherit some of the best qualities of their two parents. American Pugabulls are also called Bull Pugs. Despite their unfortunate status as a designer breed, you can find these mixed breed dogs in shelters and rescues, so remember to adopt. These adorable pups fit in well with large families and also make excellent apartment dogs for active city dwellers They are loyal and playful, but very protective: if you are a family member, this pup won’t hesitate to protect you. They will alert you to any suspicious characters approaching your door. They will also alert you to any non-suspicious characters. Socialize them early with people and animals. Read on and find out if the American Pugabull is the right dog for you.

HIGHLIGHTS

American Pugabulls are mixed breed dogs. They are not purebreds like their American Bulldog or Pug parents. The main colors of Pugabulls are tan, cream, brown, brown, black, red, and white and are rarely solid. They are usually a mixture of two or more colors. This breed is not hypoallergenic, but their short coat makes them easy to groom. A good brushing, two or three times a week, should be sufficient. Because they tend to have a shorter coat, American Pugabulls are not particularly suited to extreme weather. They will likely need a coat in the winter, and dog sunscreen may need to be applied in the summer. Provided they are trained properly, Pugabulls are great with children and are very loyal to all members of the family. American Pugabulls do best with early training. They need a strong leader and may want to test you, but for a patient and consistent owner, their loyalty and desire to please will help make training easier. Pugabulls are prone to weight gain and have high energy levels. Make sure your dog takes several short walks a day with active play sessions in between. As long as pugabulls are socialized and trained, they tend to get along well with other dogs and pets.

HISTORY

The American Pugabull dog breed may have existed naturally over the years, but designer breeders began intentionally mixing American Bulldogs and Pugs in the late 1990s in North America. Breeders wanted to mix the two parent breeds to create the perfect companion dog. Mixing breeds can also help avoid some of the problems that come from inbreeding purebred bread dogs. They continued to create American Pugabulls as the demand for mixed breed puppies increased. Although the American Pugabull breed began as a designer breed, some have ended up in shelters or in the care of rescue groups. Consider adoption if you decide this is the breed for you. Check local shelters, look for Pugabull rescues, or check with breed-specific American Bulldog and Pug rescues, as they often help re-home a mixed breed puppy. The American Pugabull is less common and is considered a new and rare mixed breed. It is recognized by the Dog Registry of America (DRA) and the American Canine Hybrid Club (ACHC).
