The Puginese is a mixed breed dog, a cross between the Pug and Pekingese dog breeds. Affectionate, sensitive and independent, these puppies inherit some of the best traits from both their parents. Despite their designer breed status, you can find these mixed-breed dogs in shelters and breed-specific rescues, so remember to adopt. These adorable little pups make excellent flat dogs for people with busier schedules, as well as companion animals for small families or seniors. They are known to be a little skittish, so they will need to reside in a calmer, quieter home. They prefer indoor spaces and are not particularly “whiny”, but have been known to bark at strangers entering the house, making them excellent watchdogs. If you want a loyal companion and a small dog with a big personality, the Puginese may be the dog for you. AniMall24 recommends a carrier for travelling with your small puginese. You should also buy a dog brush and massager for your short-haired puppy.

The Puginese mixed breed of dog may have existed naturally over the years, but designer breeders began to intentionally mix Pugs and Pekingese in the early 2000s. It is not known why these breeds were crossed, but designer breeders continued to create puginese puppies as the demand for them grew, and although the puginese began as a designer breed, some have ended up in shelters or in the care of rescue groups. If you decide this is the breed for you, consider adoption. Search local shelters, look for Puginese rescues, or check with breed-specific Pug or Pekingese rescues, as they sometimes take in mixed-breed dogs and find homes for them.
