The Pugshire is a small mixed breed dog bred from the Pug and the Yorkshire Terrier. Since both of these are toy breeds, the Pugshire do not usually get bigger than 12 pounds and should not be more than 15 inches tall. They have a medium length coat that can be almost any color such as brown, red, black, blue, silver, merle, white, brindle, pied, or any combination of colors. They are sweet and loving pets that make good lap dogs and wonderful companion pets for anyone. They enjoy other pets and children but should be supervised with little ones so nobody gets hurt.
The Pugshire loves to run, jump, and play and should be taken outdoors for exercise at least an hour per day every day. If your dog does not get enough activity every day, she can get bored or anxious and some dogs will develop bad habits like aggressiveness and barking excessively. This breed enjoys playing catch, agility training, swimming, going for long walks, and spending time with other dogs at the dog park. Since the Pugshire is small, it is possible to give her enough exercise indoors when the weather is bad but it is best for them to get outside at least once or twice a day.
