Exercise

A moderate amount of energy needs to burn daily and it will be less if the breed retains more the Pug characteristics. Therefore, it is advised not to exercise more in high-temperature. Just a simple walk will be adequate to keep them healthy and happy.

Grooming

Jug Puppies do not require bathing every day. Their coat can be maintained merely by brushing twice a week with slicker or deshedder brushes. Though, regular brushing helps the coat to become shiny and supple.

Hi I have a Puggle cross breed, she has a very cute face and she�s a light tan color we called her Ginger because my son said she reminds him of ginger ! She�s a rescue puppy and son found her! Anyway shes older adult now and she has started to pee on the carpet�s , and I have tried everything, nothing has worked! She�s still doing it! And she also will take the dry food out of the dish put it on the floor and she leaves it there she will not pick it up or eat it, and one other thing is she knows she�s not allowed on the furniture but she goes on it ! And the barking at any noise and at anyone walking down the street,anWe sold d other dogs !! Now we moved last July!
