This small, somewhat hyper (in attitude) and nevertheless relatively active hybrid dog is squeezably cute. Pom-A-Pugs can be decent watch dogs as they are alert and only tend to bark when approached by strangers. They will entertain themselves by exploring constantly. These dogs will want to keep you nearby, however, and if you are frequently gone they will most likely develop separation anxiety.
Pom-A-Pugs are very intelligent dogs, and they are independent — to a degree (they will ultimately want to please you). They will try to get you to feed them all the time and have a propensity for becoming obese, so be careful with treat based training. If your Pom-A-Pug has a preponderance of Pomeranian over Pug, he may be on the cocky side with his clever ways.
This cute mixed breed is sure to be loyal, and depending on which parent breed is the dominant one, he may bark very little or perhaps whenever he wants something and you're not "on the spot" enough! Regardless, he'll want to be at your side most the day — except when he doesn't, at which time he will most likely be off exploring nearby. If he has a Pom dominant personality, however, he may not be very patient with young children.
The Pug is a rather sturdy dog that can handle a bit of rougher play than you might think, and if your Pug-A-Pom has more Pug than Pom, he may be the same. While he may rest in your presence and lead you to believe he's a bit lazy, it's when you're not watching that this hybrid tends to be more active.
