Breed Details

General

The Daug is the result of cross combination of two pure breed dogs namely Duchshund and Pug. They are small in size dogs having characteristics of both parent breeds. To determine the characteristics of these hybrids, the best method is to study the parent breeds.

A comparative study of the parent breeds suggest that they are loving and affectionate dogs. They are suitable for families with older children as they may show pack leader behavior of the Dachshund.

They are loyal and intelligent dogs and will make good family pets.

Color

They are found in many colours like black, black and tan, brown and silver or a mix of these colours.

Coat

They have fine and wiry coat.

Personality

They are good family dogs. They inherit Pug's clown like traits that they use to amuse their owners. They are eager to please dogs. They would love to have attention of the family and would do any thing to get their attention. They generally get along well with children and other pets in the family but should be supervised as they may show dominant traits of the Dachshund. They would need early obedience training to become social with other pets. They are alert dogs that can make good watch dogs.

Care

They are low shedders and would need average grooming.

Training

They are intelligent enough to be trained easily but they sometime show stubborn and willful behavior specially towards house-training. This can be dealt with gentle and consistent obedience training sessions.

Activity

They are lively and active dogs that would need moderate amount of exercise.
