The Pug is often described as a lot of dog in a little space. These sturdy, compact dogs are part of the American Kennel Club’s Toy group, and are known as the clowns of the dog world because they have a great sense of humour and love to show off, although they are purebred dogs, you may find them in the care of shelters or rescue groups. Remember to adopt. Originally bred to be lap dogs, Pugs thrive on human companionship. They are very sensitive and, although they can make excellent flat pets, they will not like to be left home alone for many hours a day. Although these puppies have a stubborn side, especially when it comes to house training, they are playful and affectionate dogs who get along well even with novice parents. If you are looking for a loving, easy-going companion, this may be the breed for you.
Pugaliers are mixed breed dogs. The main colours of the Pugaliers are apricot, black, brown, ruby, grey, white, black and tan, and tricolour. Sometimes their coat is solid, but usually it is a combination of these colours.For grooming, one good brushing a week will probably be sufficient, although if their coat is more like that of their Cavalier parent, it may need two to three brushings a week.If your puppy inherits the folds in their fur from the pug parents, be sure to keep the fur clean and dry, as they are prone to developing skin infections.Pugaliers are prone to weight gain, and have moderate energy levels. Make sure your puppy takes several toilet breaks throughout the day, with active play sessions and short walks mixed in. Because the Pugalier is on the small side, they can be easily injured by over-excited children. Pugaliers are ideal for families of children of all ages, just supervise and make sure everyone knows how to play gently.
The Pugalier mixed breed may have existed naturally over the years, but designer breeders began intentionally mixing Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and Pugs in the 1990s, probably in North America.Although the Pugalier breed started out as a designer breed, some have ended up in shelters or in the care of rescue groups. If you decide this is the dog for you, consider adopting it.Check local shelters, look for Pugalier rescues, or check with breed-specific Pug or King Charles Spaniel rescues, as they sometimes accept mixed-breed dogs.The Pugalier is recognised by:American Canine Hybrid Club (ACHC)Designer Dogs Kennel Club (DDKC)Dog Registry of America, Inc. (DRA)International Designer Canine Registry (IDCR)
