Pugshire

December 17, 2021

Today’s animal of the day is a Pugshire.  They love playing with children and getting along with other pets.

Characteristics

  • Pugshires are a mix of two toy breed dogs, so they rarely get more than 12 pounds and do not go beyond 15 inches in height.
  • Their medium-length fur coats come in almost every color, from brown, red, black and white, to silver, blue, brindled, or pied.
  • They require brushing at least once every 3 or 4 days.
  • Pugshires were a designer dog breed introduced about 15 years ago.

Temperament

  • Pugshires are specifically bred for companionship. They have a loving personality and are good-natured pets.
  • They get along well with children, adults, and other pets, provided they get socialized as puppies.
  • Training Pugshires requires patience as they are stubborn when it comes to housebreaking.
  • Because they are companion animals, Pugshires are prone to separation anxiety.
  • They are very active dogs that enjoy running, jumping, and playing.

Maintenance

  • Pugshires are very energetic. They require at least an hour of exercise every day, or they will become irritable and aggressive.
  • Because of their medium-length coat, Pugshires should get groomed at least once a week.
  • They have sensitive skin that dries out quickly, so they need to bathe in mild shampoos to avoid skin irritation.
  • Their teeth should get cleaned once weekly to prevent tooth decay.
