Shug Dog

Shug Dog

The Shug mostly resembles and outgrown Pug in its coat texture, facial features, and color. This highly energetic dog seems a lot more toned down than its German Shepherd parent lacking its over-courageous nature. This loyal and affectionate dog always loves being surrounded by its people.

If it has acquired more of the Pug’s flat face, be overcautious while exercising him. Too much of it could leave it panting breathlessly.
