Pom-A-Pug

The Pug’s wrinkled features and Pom’s fluffiness combined makes the Pom-A-Pug an immensely appealing companion. These smart dogs are easy-to-main and a delight to keep because of their pleasant demeanor. Socialization and obedience training if imparted since the times they are puppies would help correct the small dog syndrome inherent in them.
