Is the Pug / Jack Russell Terrier Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Jug

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Pug / Jack Russell Terrier is a cross between a pure Pug and a pure JRT, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. While every mixed breed dog is an individual, the Jug can be a bit more suited to more families than the high-intensity JRT, since the Pug parent brings DNA from a long-time companion breed.

Appearance / health:
This cute little mix can be surprisingly varied in appearance, with some individuals expressing more of the Jack Russell traits and others leaning more toward the Pug side.

Behavior / temperament:
You're mixing a terrier originally developed to pursue vermin with a companion breed meant to hang out with family. Which genes express themselves in any given dog is unpredictable. The Jug can be an excellent family dog, but some of them may possess the drive to chase, which means they might harass your other small pets. Thanks to the Jack Russell DNA, the dog may demand a lot more exercise and playtime than you expected.
