Funny Jug Dog at the Seaside - YouTube

"Jugs" are mixed breed dogs - mutts - and you cannot say which characteristics of which breed will dominate. In other words, just because a pug is bred to a Jack Russell, doesn't mean that it won't have typical pug conformation and health problems. Further, people who breed these "designer dogs" usually aren't concerned about breeding better dogs, so the genetic health status of the parents is often untested and unknown. By continuing to purchase these glorified mutts, peoople are encouraging others to continue breeding dogs irresponsibly. Please consider finding a dog at a local shelter, rather than purchasing a "designer dog."

The answer is not the punchline to a joke, but the name of a new designer dog breed – the Jug.

Another factor to consider is whether Jugs can get along peacefully with other dogs. Chloe the Jug at 2 years old—"She is very loving and great with children, cats and other dogs. She takes after the JRT and is very high energy and very intelligent. Jugs should have access to a fenced yard as they love to run and dig. They will chase squirrels, rabbits, etc., so the yard should definitely be fenced."

It's called the Tug-A-Jug interactive treat toy for dogs.

DOGSTER WARNING: If you are in the market for a Jug, please be forewarned that this is not an established breed, and the chances that you will encounter backyard breeders or puppy millers trying to capitalize on this fancy mutt’s popularity are pretty high. As with any breed, please DO YOUR HOMEWORK and resist the urge to impulse buy. If you see “buy it now” PayPal buttons on websites hawking these dogs, this is a huge red flag and we implore you to run screaming in the opposite direction.

Thinking of Buying a Jug Dog in the USA


When it comes to buying Jugs, your options may be fairly limited because these dogs are still fairly rare. You may be lucky enough to come upon one at your local pet store, but you should consider whether that is really the best place to buy a puppy.The Jug is a recent addition to the growing list of "designer dogs". Jugs are bred from purebred Jack Russells and purebred Pugs. The Jack Russell is a small game hunting dog originally bred in the mid 19th century. They were used for hunting Red Fox and were known for their ability to dig into foxes' dens, exposing them for the hunters. The Pug is a short muzzled, thickset dog with a curly tail, originally bred around 400 B.C. in Asia. The Pug is not a hunter, but a companion dog.A Jug puppy is not a purebred dog, but a hybrid of a Jack Russell Terrier and a Pug. A relatively young mix, the Jug puppy can inherit any number of characteristics from the Jack Russell or the Pug. As with any breed of puppy, the Jug should be well socialized, trained and loved in order for it to grow into a confident, friendly and well-behaved adult.The initial costs for a Jug dog include the cost to purchase the dog as well as initial vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery, microchipping and various accessories.
