The Jug is a cross between the Jack Russell and the Pug. Small and stocky these little characters a quickly becomming a very popular choice for anyone looking for a great companion. They usually have a short coat unless crossed with a rough coated Jack Russell. Jugs make adorable, loving companions and are great little family dogs with huge personalities.
A combination of the two breeds will give you a Jug who has a fearless nature, yet is highly sociable and easy to train due to the high intelligence of both breeds.
Jugs tend to have puggish type faces that are flatter than the Jack Russells, with pug-like ears and a short snout. They may have leaner Jack Russell type bodies and will usually carry a curly pug tail. Colouring varies (depending on the parents) but the most typical jugs are either various shades of fawn or black. They are very endearing to look at and their cuteness and charm always guarantees a good deal of attention when walking them. They are usually between 25cm and 35cm tall.
