The Pugwich is a rare hybrid breed so we must look to the parent dog to determine their lineage characteristics. The Pug originated in China and was prized by the Emperors of China. In the late 1500s when China began trading with the European countries, the Pug became known.The Pug quickly won hearts and became the official dog of the House of Orange in Holland after a Pug reportedly saved the life of William, Prince of Orange after giving him a warning that the Spaniards were approaching. The breed arrived in England in the early 1800s. Two purebred Pugs from were brought from China to England and used to strengthen the Pugs lineage. A pup named Click who was the first born of the union was an outstanding dog and is credited with improving the overall breed. Queen Victoria had several Pugs and had a breeding program for their development. The Pug first appeared in the United States after the Civil War and was recognised by the American Kennel Club in 1885. This royal small dog continues to enjoy a popular following to this day. The Norwich Terrier is a feisty, active small dog with a big attitude who originated from East Anglia, England. The Norfolk and Norwich Terriers used to be the same breed but had different ear types, and both were referred to as the Norwich Terrier. In 1964 the English breeders separated them, and the Norwich became the dog with the prick ears, while the Norfolk was the dog with the dropped ears. Another difference with the breed is that the Norwich was a rounded shape and quite stocky. They were used on farms to control the rats in the barns and to bolt foxes out of their dens. Small in size, they were ideal for flushing game out from their dens for the hunters to chase with their hounds. While the date when they arrived in the United States of America is unclear, the American Kennel Club recognised them in 1979.
