Pugapoos are one of those hybrids that vary wildly in terms of appearance, especially the first couple generations. Some may have a straight coat, others wavy to curly; some will have adorable faces and curly tails like the Pug while others will look much like the Poodle. In general, they are small dogs (usually the Poodle parent is either Miniature or Toy) that weigh up to 18 pounds. Their coats may be solid or multi colored, typical colors include: black, fawn, apricot, beige, cream, silver, grey and blue.
Members of this breed are certainly smart little dogs that are trainable by first time owners. Pugs are harder to train than Poodles so if yours is more like the lovable Pug, expect training to take a bit more consistency. These hybrids are said to take to training pretty quickly and excel in agility events as well as obedience.
Your Pugapoo will be a bundle of entertaining joy to have around the household. They are indoor dogs that crave your presence and attention. That being said, separation anxiety is a possibility, however, they will fare better if they have another pet to pal around with. She will certainly make an appropriate guard dog and is never shy from being vocal. Not to mention, Pugapoos are excellent choices for families with kids and/or other pets!
Although this mischievous, entertaining pups are fairly energetic, their small size allows them to be easily exercised. A few short walks, occasional trips to the dog park, and playtime in a fenced yard (with toys) are all outings that can help him burn off excess energy. A small yard is appreciated but not required.
