60 Pug Mixes

The Pug has one of the best varieties in the designer dog world. They are crossed with other dog breeds of different sizes, body structures, facial features, and temperaments.

This variety makes for an exciting discovery of each of these Pug mixes. Many of them are acknowledged though by the American Canine Hybrid Club (ACHC) and Dog Registry of America, Inc. (DRA). 

We hope that as you go through this list, you will be able to decide on what particular Pug mix will fit you best!

The Affenpug is a cross between the Affenpinscher and the Pug. It is a small-sized dog that stands between 9 and 16 inches and weighs only about 7 to 18 pounds. 

Affenpinscher Pug mixes have a long lifespan, between 12 and 15 years, similar to their Pug parent.

The common colors of the Affenpug are black, sable, fawn, red, and cream.

It has a funny-looking appearance, taking after the brachycephalic features of the Pug while having the bearded look of the Affenpinscher. 

The coat of this hybrid is rough and wiry and would require brushing several times a week. The mustache of the Affenpug should also be cleaned daily after eating.

The Affenpug is charming, alert, and moderately energetic. They can also be spunky, stubborn, and territorial, especially when it comes to food. Early socialization training is important to address this behavior.

2. Pugkita (Akita & Pug Mix)

The Pugkita is a rare hybrid between the Akita and the Pug. Depending on the more dominant parent breed, it may grow between 10 and 28 inches and weigh 13 and 130 pounds. It can also live between 10 and 15 years.

Many existing Akita Pug mixes carry the snout of the Akita, avoiding health issues associated with short muzzles. 

Both parent breeds also have straight and double coats, with the Akita often sporting longer coats. That said, you can expect the same coat quality from their offspring.

If the mix takes after Akita’s behavior, training is necessary to avoid aggression. Meanwhile, if they take after the Pug, they will be very affectionate and would enjoy the attention of their human companions.

3. American Pugabull (American Bulldog & Pug Mix)

The most common color of this mix is fawn with black markings. They can also come in other colors depending on the markings of their parent breeds.

Due to their short coat, though, they do not thrive well in extreme weather.

The American Pugabull is very intelligent, playful, and protective. They make great watchdogs but tend to bark a lot.

They are also quite stubborn and dominant, so they need a firm leader to recognize as the pack leader.

The ears of the Bassugg are long but shorter than that of the Basset Hound.

Their bodies are mostly long and close to the ground due to their short legs. They have short and silky coats that are usually fawn, black, and tricolor.

The Basset Hound Pug mix is an adorable lap dog that is great for children due to its laid-back, friendly, and gentle temperament.

They do love attention as well, so they get lonely when left alone for a long time.

The Puggle is one of the most sought-after designer dogs mainly due to the popularity of its parent breeds, the Beagle and the Pug.
