Characteristics of the Japug
As with all other hybrid / cross breeds, it is difficult to tell what kind of temperament and characteristics a japug will have as these could also significantly differ. The best way to get a clearer idea is to look at the parent breeds’ characteristics, the Japanese chin and the pug. In general the japus is a great companion dog. There are often similarities between the parent breeds and the japug. For example, they can be friendly, great with children and other pets, playful, affectionate, heavy shedding, relatively easy to train. Japugs can, therefore, be the ideal choice for many different types of family.
How much do Japugs cost?
It is not uncommon for cross breed dogs to cost less than their parent breeds. Furthermore, how much they cost can be highly dependent on their age, which breeder you are buying the dog and where they are located. The prices can vary between £300 ($450 US approx) and £800 ($1200 US approx). When you’ve found a japug you want to get, make sure to buy from a reputable breeder, and also don’t forget to ask to see the puppy’s parents. If the breeder, for instance, refuse to do this, this is something you should watch out for.
