Pom-a-pug

The Pom-A-Pug is a cross between a Pomeranian and a Pug. This designer breed is also called Pug-A-Pom, Pugapom, Pug-Pom/Pugpom, Pompug/Pom-Pug, and Pugeranian.

The Pomeranian is a descendant of large sled dogs that is regarded as the smallest member of the Spitz family that’s loved by many for its cute and furry Pom-Pom form, while the Pug is a short-nosed dog known to have been bred by the Chinese and called the Lo-sze which were kept as royalty pets. Pugs are deemed as today’s clowns of the canine world for their great sense of humor.Like with any designer breed, the resulting pup can be any combination of the qualities and characteristics of the pup’s parents.

Physical Appearance

The eyes of the Pom-A-Pug usually bulge a little like the Pug’s, and acquire its somewhat smooshed face. Its ears may stand up or flop, or each ear different from the other. The muzzle is relatively short considering the small noses of both parent breeds, and this queer pooch may have a curly tail. Their hair comes in black, fawn or tan colors. The coat of the Pom-A-Pug arrives in various textures such as medium length and smooth, medium length and semi coarse, short and smooth, or short and semi coarse. This designer breed is a low maintenance dog who is fairly easy to groom.

Temperament

The Pom-A-Pug has a high-pitched bark but typically does not bark too often. They serve as good watchdogs despite their small size, but remains to be a well-mannered dog. It can be very independent and playful, yet mostly laid back and relaxed. The Pom-A-Pug makes a great family dog for its loving, friendly nature and generally calm behavior towards people and other animals. They do well with kids, get along with other house pets, and is ideal for apartment living.

Health

Overall the Pugeranian is a very healthy mix, with less respiratory issues in reference to a short muzzle. This small dog would enjoy a good run around the yard but has the tendency to be lazy, and overeat if allowed which can eventually lead to health issues. Their skin can suffer from dryness during the fall and winter.

The average life expectancy of the Pom-A-Pug is 8 to 12 years, or even up to 15 years with proper care. A fully grown Pom-a-Pug weighs about 14 pounds on average, with an approximate height of around 8-13 inches and weight ranging from 5-16 pounds.
