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

A Pugshire (also known as a Porkie or a Yuggie) is a mix between a Yorkshire Terrier and a Pug. They closely resemble pugs however, they are slightly smaller and their hair can grow a little longer than a pug's hair but not as long as a Yorkie's. The only ones I have seen thus far are the Fawn color (tan with the distinctive black snout/nose). They also have a short, thick tail that curls.
The Pugshire is very loving and loyal. It loves to be around people as well as other dogs that will accept it. It is energetic and playful but enjoys long naps as well. Generally, the Pugshire is a smart breed and is capable for independent thought. Owners need to be patient when training.

Pugshires require very little maintenance. Pugs shed and Yorkies do not. Luckily, Pugshires don't shed either. A bath every week or two with an oatmeal shampoo will keep their coat clean. Their hair can be left alone or trimmed down to a very short pug length.
A Pugshire's ideal environment where they are loved and given attention. They love kids and other animals as well. They are playful and can't wait to see you when you return home. They love playing, going for walks, and snuggling afterwards. They are the perfect companion.
