Behaviour and Personality

A Schnug is a cross between a Miniature Schnauzer and a Pug, and it is known for being very affectionate, intelligent, and friendly. It does not require a great deal of grooming, but it does need a good amount of exercise in order to stay healthy. It's a very trainable dog, but is not really suitable for being a watchdog, since it doesn't bark to alert owners about strangers.
