    Default is this a pug mix?

    Hi everyone! I'm new here, with my 5 year old rescue pug, Captain.
    After looking up other pugs on the internet, the Captain looks like he might have some other breed mixed in. His forehead is not as wrinkly as other pugs, he has a ruff of long fur around his neck, and he's kind of long and lean. Everything else is definitely pug-like, though!
    Here are some pics:

    This was the day we brought him home, you can sort of see the long-hair ruff around his neck (and he was pretty skinny :( )

    We set up a webcam to watch him while we are out! He's got some long legs.

    And just for fun, possibly the cutest picture I have ever taken. He looks especially puppy-ish here:

    Thanks for looking!

    To me he looks like he probably has something else mixed in there, but I have no idea what! He is cute!

    This looks like a Pug Chihuahua mix to me.

    I can't be positive, but it certainly doesn't look purebred.

    He definitely looks like a mix...not necessarily saying his parents weren't both pugs because they very well could be but it could be somewhere in the family tree. Looks like some kind of terrier.

    The length and look of his muzzle makes me think pug-terrier mix? He sure is cute whatever he is. Congratulations!

    LOL Pug/terrier mix, the BEST of both worlds. (I have pugs and rat terriers)
    I'm thinking Pekingese Pug mix.

    He is lovely, I wouldn't worry about his background.

    we like his name!

    It does look mixed... my captain is long-legged and lean, and his nose is a longer than other pug lines. Hi is "pure" and his papers lead back to a midwest puppy mill where the dogs do run bigger (taller)... I keep mine lean, and he is happy and yours looks to be too! Enjoy!
