The mix of Pug and Jack Russell Terrier makes these adorable crosses stocky-looking. The only distinguishable difference is that they have longer muzzles. They have rounded skulls and curly tails just like a pug. They are usually small with a short coat and live between 12-15 years. Most jugs are between 6-8kg and 25-35cm.
Jugs are typically quite friendly, fearless, and truly affectionate. They’re also known to be naturally outgoing, energetic and full of life – which makes regular exercise critical. One of the traits that Jugs have inherited from Jack Russells is their innate ability to hunt. They are highly intelligent, which makes them easy to train.
Jugs are high-maintenance dogs in terms of their fur. With their excessive shedding, Jugs require regular brushing and combing. Such tender, loving care will also help maintain a shinier and healthier coat.
Jugs are the offspring of a Pug and Jack Russell Terrier. They are primarily bred to offervariety with a slightly longer nose than a pure-bred pug.
