We lost our sweet Java after having her for Staffordshire Bull Terrier dog when life gets tough cowboy up shirt. She gave us so many laughs and non stop entertainment. Even though Java cost us $1,000’s in medical issues over the years we wouldn’t have traded her for another bred of dog. We are coming up on the anniversary date that Java passed away. It is still so dog gone hard somedays. The last year of her life her back legs would go out and she developed a slight twitch in her eyes and head. We made the difficult decision to let Java go a couple months ago. She didn’t have a good quality of life anymore. This was hard to do because she was so loved in our family. I have no idea if a mixed pug breed would be a healthier dog. I would suggest doing your research and ask a trusted vet.
