Jack Russell Terrier Pug Mix

From Liz: Boink, our 2 1/2 yr old Jugg is part Jack Russell Terrier and part Pug. She is a caramel colour and has the curled tail of a Pugg, which her Dad was purebred. Her Mom was a purebred Jack Russell. Boink is smart, stubborn and silly too. She loves to play, wrestle, go swimming in the river and play with big dogs at the Dog Park. She also LOVES TV shows with animals, especially horses and dogs in it. We have many dog movies for her and call them “Boink’s flicks”. LOL She is full of energy and although she is a spayed female, she is an assertive chic. She adores Robert and considers him the Alpha Dog. She thinks that she is the Omega Dog and second in command. And Boink treats me as the Low Dog. But she is loving and sweet to both of us. She was an abused puppy kept in a pen 24/7 with no exercise, no socialization and they broke her left front paw in a rage. It healed turned out, as she was not taken to a Veternarian for treatment. We have had BoinK since she was 1 yr old and she is a happy well adjusted dog today after much love and patience to build back her lost trust of humans. We renamed her Boink, as she can boink boink boink so high in the air. We are both retired and so Boink does almost everything with us except shopping. We adore her, as she has stolen our heart.

We heard that Juggs are now a recognized breed. She originally cost $350.00 according to the original owners. Has anyone heard either way? It really doesn’t matter to us, as we adore BoinK. Thanks. Liz and BoinK

    I also have a Jugg. His name is Pepe. He is 4 1/2 years old and you described him to a “T”. I love love love this new breed. :o) We bought him in FL for $175. I haven’t heard yet of the Jugg being recognized as a breed. But we now live in So Cal, and nobody has ever heard of or seen this mix. Some day our little Jugg kids are gonna be sought after as the best breed ever! hehe.

    I had a female dog that looked just like your dog, she died a few years ago and been searching for one like her. Does anyone know a breeder that produces puppies like this in USA?

    Very interested to identify any breeds within our dog. Yours is the closest by far we have found after a year of searching. He’s a chinese street dog (literally, adopted from the streets of Qingdao) but he moved with us to the UK this year (the expense!). He has exactly these furrows between the eyes (his frown) and a beautiful broadly curved tail which is quite long. His nose is noticeable shorter than your average JRT. He is quite a dense dog, very heavy for his size and VERY strong legs. See him here on my fb page and if you care to comment let us know what you think Thanks for introducing me to the concept of the Jugg.

    My dog, Toby, looks exactly like Boink! I was always told that Toby (who was a rescue dog) was a Chug — Chihuahua and Pug, but he doesn’t look like most Chugs I’ve seen.

    I had suspected that he might be part Jack Russell, because he can jump so high (well, could until he gained so much weight) and he’s so high-energy. Now that I see Boink, I think that he must be part Jack Russell.

    He is quite mischievous and, if there’s trouble to be had, he’ll find it! Thanks for sharing the photo of Boink.

    I’m not even kidding, our girl Dusty looks JUST like Boink. She is 1.5 years old. I wonder if they are related?

    Just wanted to touch base and let you know that Boink has lived with my wife and I for the past year and a half, and we completely fell in love with her at first sight.

    She is a beautiful, wonderful (bossy) little pooper who follows us around everywhere we go.

    She enjoys the cottage weekends, running through the field of high grass, swimming in the lake (although, due to her build and little stubby legs, we had to get her a life jacket), rides in the car with her head out the window, trips to the dog park (although she mostly ignores the other dogs until they come to her), watching movies (I totally know what you mean about Horse and Dog movies) and she even comes to work with us most days.

    She totally rules the roost around here, because once she stares at you with those eyes, and the little grunty noises she makes… how can you possibly say no.

    I’m sure you understand just how much when we say that “We absolutely adore her” and often wish that we had gotten to know her when she was just a puppy.
    She has completed our little family, and the three of us are living very happily sharing laughs and love.
