Home/Mixes / Pugapoo



When you have a smart and intelligent dog like the Poodle as one of its parents, the expectation from the Pugapoo gets high. It lives up to its parentage since it is endowed with a sharp brain alongside a loving demeanor. They could either be a mix of the Pug and Standard Poodle or even the Miniature or Toy Poodle.

Pugapoo is one of the most adjustable breeds that you would love to bring home. They are immensely receptive to unknown people and unfamiliar surroundings during the initial stage of their puppyhood. So, the onus lies on owners to give them maximum exposure through proper socialization training.
