Schnug is a hybrid of a Pug and a Schnauzer.
Playful and alert, the Min. Schnauzer is a well-mannered companion. It
is less dog-aggressive than most terriers. It is clever and can become
headstrong, but is generally well-behaved. It gets along with children,
although can become a bit of a barker.
Pugs have a wonderful sense of humor to go along with their comical
appearance. They are show-offs and will do just about anything for
attention. They will readily accept strangers and do not make good watch
or guard dogs. They will play with children and other animals but should
not be subjected to heavy exercise. They are very sensitive to heat and
should never be left outdoors in warm weather.
A nice moderate walk each day or a romp in the back-yard will meet this
energetic dog's exercise requirements. Its wire coat needs combing once
or twice per week. Professional clipping every couple of months will
keep it looking like the standard.
They shed quite a bit even though their coats are short. The folds of
skin in their face should be cleaned regularly to avoid infection.
