Species group: Mixed Breeds
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 pairing between the large Alaskan Malamute and the small Pug isn't all that common, but a few rescues have reported coming across this mix.
Appearance / health:
All mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, but with the Alaskan Malamute / Pug Mix, you truly do need to expect the unexpected.
Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of any mixed-breed dog, the Alaskan Malamute / Pug cross is a mix of two breeds that can be devoted to a consistent, kind alpha-- and rather stubborn towards anyone they perceive as a pushover. This animal might be best for the experienced dog owner.
