I have a pug/rat terrier mix aka mini-boxer aka pugat. Does anyone else out there have one? I am wondering if anyone else's is a stubborn as mine is. Paige (my puppy) who is going on 8 months is very smart but very stubborn. She house broke herself but if she does not want to do something hang it up becasue you will never get her to due it. Any tips on how the break her from being so stubborn?
In the long run I paid a lot more. I was unaware of the petstore issue and bought her from a petshop. The petshop told my husband and I that she had the hiccups and not to worry. We took her to the vet the next day and the vet gave her meds for a cold/kennel cough. A week later she was still not better and had to be hospitalized for phenomena. The hospital bills were alot. Luckly I was able to find the breeder who was nice and helped out with the bills. Knowing what I know now I would still buy her if I had to do it all over agian. She is the most wonderful puppy. She is Fawn with a light black strip running down her back. She is a people puppy and does not want to be left alone.
i've heard pugs can be stubborn but have not experienced it, she could be getting it from that. has she done basic obedience classes? have you read up on dog training? usually pugs are very trainable, i can't speak for rat terriers. if you haven't done it i'd recommend training classes.
hey! Casey is a fawn 8mnth pugrat terrier into everything .Just destroyed my daughters retainer.love him alot but have to stop his distruction.Have 2other dogs an american eskimo and a lab never had this tough of a time before.he loves the 3 cats but they are not thrilled with him.thought the other dogs would teach him some manners but they hide from him as he drives them crazy he never gives up.
No, classes but she does do/learn thing she just does not want to do the "come" command. She will shake, sit, stand, lay but will not come when called. She will come when she has a mind to or if there is food involved. For those that do have the pug/rat terrier mix what is the weight of your dog. Mine is 20 lbs which is a solid 20 lbs not a fat 20lbs.
Hi fellow Puggat people! I never even knew they actually had a "name". I got my 5 month old baby (Chyna) from someone who just had an "oops" between her boyfriends rat terrier and her pug. I bought her for $50...and you guys paid what??? Of course she has cost me hundreds since then (spoiled little wench!). She is also fawn colored with the black stripe down her back. She has the pug black mask on her face and the longest curly tail. She also has the longest legs...I call them her spider legs. Do all of your Puggats have these physical characteristics? She is also VERY smart and mischievous but she has done no damage to things not her own (so far). The worse thing she does is the biting and digging thing. She digs on my couch, on my body...she is so nuts. Do yours do that digging thing too? She also likes to perch on my husbands shoulder when he is sitting in his recliner. She is stubborn too....doesn't come when she is called. There are some pictures of her on my web site - www.fotfpets.com - if you'd like to see her. I'd like to know if yours resemble her and I am having a hard time finding any pics of Puggats on the web. One thing is for sure, though....EVERYONE stops and comments about how cute she is when we are taking a walk. They ARE adorable, aren't they?
Hmm, maybe I was wrong about my Toyota's mix? All you pug/rat terrier mix owners need to look at Yota's page and tell me what you think! lol! Please? As soon as I read Nessy's comment, "mini-boxer", I had to post because this little guy sometimes looks like one - when his ears are alert. =)
I just got a Puggat tonight. She is 3 months old. I would love any suggestions you have on training them! my email is email@example.com We have Roxie, and she looks very similar to Chyna. I will get pics posted soon. We bought her at a pet store and paid a lot of money! Yikes! Our friends have a chihuahua/pug and we fell is love with him. Can;'t wait to hear from you!
For Christmas this year (very early present) my boyfriend took me to the animal defense league where we got our puggat/ PugRat Terrier mix. He is tan with black around his nose and eyes and down his tail, with alittle white dot on his neck. At first we wanted a puppy but when we saw him it didnt matter that he was three years old. We named him Rocky. At the DL they told us that he was a terrier mix and he looked like he had some pug in him. Well of course i went searching online about it and for sure he is a puggat. He is wonderful!
He can be very stubborn though when he doesnt want to come, especially come inside.
One thing i really love is how he can jump, and oh how he can jump. He is completly house trained and only chews on things that are his. He loves to chew but he has not yet touch any of my shoes or other accessable items. He love to be held and cuddle in my lap. He loves other animals and all people.
An odd fact, we have only heard in bark 2 or 3 times. The first time we had only had him for a couple days and had been trying to get him to bark and he wouldnt but when out friend came by while we were sleeping at two AM and came in he barked only twice.
He is the love of mylife (to my boyfriends despair).
WHERE DO I FIND THIS DOG? i live in the brooklyn area of ny and am willing to travel to get one my fiace and i are in search of these "mini boxers" and are dying ot get one for my upcomming birthday ina few weeks.. any help???
There not a breed, they are a mixed breed. Your best bet is to go to http://www.petfinder.com Do a dog search and type in one of the breeds in the mix, it will bring up a list of them that are up for adoption.
People are like slinky's, not really good for much. But its still fun to push them down the stairs.
