Does anyone have a pugottie? Pug x Scottish Terrier?
If so I just want a little information on them. How big do they get? Good inside dog? Grooming? Anything you may know. Thanks.

No I do not have a Pug Scottish Terrier mix (mutt).
I do know that mutts do make good inside dogs, that is if his or her owner knows how to properly train a dog.
Since this is a mutt, there is no way to predict 100% how big one will grow, some may be as big as Pugs, some as big a Scottish Terriers, and some may be in between.
The same thing can be said about grooming, as Pugs have short hair and Scottish Terrier have longer hair than a Pug.
ANYONE that breeds and sells this mix or any other mix for that matter IS a backyard breeder or puppymill.
NO real, reputable breeder breeds mutts!!!
If you still are interested in owning this particular mixed breed, I suggest that you search for them in the following.
I should also add that adoption fees are much, much less than what ANY byb or puppymiller would sell (peddle) one for.

The identical factor are able to be said about grooming, as Pugs have brief hair and Scottish Terrier have longer hair than a Pug.

If you nonetheless tend to be intrigued in possessing this particular combined breed, I recommend that you lookup for them in the following. 1-800-save-a-pet website/cgi-bin/... petharbor website/ dogsindanger website/ petfinder website/ craigslist.org/about/cities.h...

You can't find information because it's Not A Breed! It's a mixbreed with a really stupid name. I mean really a "jug". A Jug is something you carry liquid in. If you want a JRT, then get one. If you want a Pug, then get one. Since your willing to purchase a mixbreed dog, which has no pedigree, just visit your local shelter to find a mixbreed dog who needs a home. edit: I have no problem with owning a mixbreed dog. Heck, I owned a wonderful mixbreed dog that was adopted. I do have a problem with these silly made up mixes. I mean, really, why in the world would any one purposely mix a JRT & a Pug. It makes no sense. And better yet, call it a Jug. Once again, look for a Pug mix or a JRT X in your local shelter. You'll find tons of these mixes.

I have a pugottie who is now 9 months old. He is an amazing dog. He looks a lot like a norfolk or cairn terrier except that he has a curly tail like a pug. He's got short legs and body style of a pug--stocky and muscular. He's 26 pounds right now. I don't find that he sheds that much. He's more energetic than a pug and although he's an inside dog we walk him a lot and play a lot of fetch! Maybe we got lucky, but he's all around great dog and great temperment. We also registered him through AKC. You can register hybrids with AKC if both parents are AKC registered.

Why, why,why? Okay. This is a mixed breed dog. You can't tell what it will be like until you see it. There are no guarantees with mixed breeds. If you like pugs, get a pug. Then you will know what the grooming requirements are, adult size range, etc. If you like scotties, get a scottie. If you buy a mixed breed, you are supporting irresponsible, unethical backyard breeders.
Think this is an ethical breeder? Then ask the following questions:
1. what are the breed standards?
2. What are you looking to improve in the breed by breeding the dogs?
3. What health checks are done on the breeding stock? Eyes? Hips?
4. What are the genetic heath problems associated with these breeds, and how are you choosing which dogs to breed to overcome these?
There are a bunch more, but I would be interested if the breeders can answers even *one* of these to my satisfaction.

I had a pug terrier mix and she shed a lot. I brushed her everyday but her undercoat was so thick that my house was full of dog hair. She didn't get very big about a foot tall. She was a little chunky though. Best bet is to research both breeds and assume that the dog will be a mixture of them both.

Well, let's use our noodle here....
It'll be bigger than a pug
But smaller than a Scottish Terrier
....maybe right in between! Just depends on the dominant gene, now doesn't it? Only God can determine that....
Just enjoy your mix and all the joy he brings to your life.
(Pugottie sounds like a fancy Italian dish)

Um, a WHAT?!
All I know is that they're high priced mutts with a fancy name - They are only sold by unethical Backyard Greeders or Puppy Mills that are out to make a buck. There is NO WAY of predicting what kind of dog they'll be since they're a Mixed Breed dog.
Stay away from them and anyone that sells them!
