About the Cocker Pug
The Cocker Pug is a hybrid dog that is made up of a combination of two different purebreeds. It's a cross between the Cocker Spaniel and the Pug. We've found the best method for understanding the characteristics of the Cocker Pug is to read both of its ancestors descriptions taking note of their temperaments, size and general look.

Most Cocker Pugs have the build of a Pug but the fur of the Spaniel. They are larger than normal Pugs with longer front legs and most are considered top heavy.
Most are very smart but can be stubborn. Some may be very food motivated. They strive to please their owners. Training is fairly easy especially when praise and treats are used. They pick up on the temperament of their owners and may be hyper or lethargic depending on their environment.
