Characteristics of the Pug Cross Husky
The best way to understand what kind of personalities and characteristics a hug will have is by looking at the pure parent breeds; the pug and the siberian husky. As we all know pugs are typically friendly, great with little children and other small pets, loyal to owners, lively, but also at the same time can be couch potatoes. Although Siberian Huskies share some of these, such as friendly and they are great family dogs, there are other characteristics worth mentioning. For instance, huskies do not adapt well in small living space and intelligent.
Furthermore, due to their large size and the fact that they are classed in the working dog category, they are very energetic and require significant amounts of exercise. Some pug husky dog mix may be more similar to the pug while others may get their personalities from the husky side.

We rescued a hug as we were told from a man who wanted to get rid of her. He said he got her from a breeder but she was untrainable and too small of a breed for his small children. When we got her supposedly she was 8 weeks and 6 pounds but by how she got her canines she was more like 12 weeks. Once we got her urinary tract infection taken care of, fleas, malnutrition, and dehydration, she trained easily following our older rescue who was not quite 2 year LA, half border collie and rat terrier, who took over the pup like a mom. Nova is a beautiful brindle, 34 pounds, looks more like husky with husky fur but has the underbite of the pug. She is difficult to train, it's like she has Adhd. She seems to be here, there, everywhere. She loves to hunt animals and run outside but is completely lovable and a goofball. Fun to watch her. She does annoy her older sister who has the working dog breed and seriousness to her at times lol but after Mya has had enough she puts her in her place. We now have 2 very unique looking rescues that we love completely.
My hug is about 2 and half months old. How big do they get?
