User added info

A Pugshire (also known as a Porkie or a Yuggie) is a mix between a Yorkshire Terrier and a Pug. They closely resemble pugs however, they are slightly smaller and their hair can grow a little longer than a pug's hair but not as long as a Yorkie's. The only ones I have seen thus far are the Fawn color (tan with the distinctive black snout/nose). They also have a short, thick tail that curls.

The Pugshire is very loving and loyal. It loves to be around people as well as other dogs that will accept it. It is energetic and playful but enjoys long naps as well. Generally, the Pugshire is a smart breed and is capable for independent thought. Owners need to be patient when training.

General Health

Pugshires require very little maintenance. Pugs shed and Yorkies do not. Luckily, Pugshires don't shed either. A bath every week or two with an oatmeal shampoo will keep their coat clean. Their hair can be left alone or trimmed down to a very short pug length.

Dog Training!

If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of DogProblems.com. Adam will do whatever it takes to help you whip your dog into shape. I've used them to help with my Great Dane as well as help friends train their dogs. It's the first place I go to help answer users Questions. Many training issues are too extensive to answer in this forum, which is why I refer a lot of the load to his site. Update: I've been using and recommending DogProblems for three years now. I, as well as my users, value the techniques we've learned. I get weekly emails from users who have become better owners from the information they received.
