As a quiet dog, if muggin hears strange sounds or encounters suspicious things, muggin does not hesitate to bark to attract attention. This qualifies them to be a good watchdog. You should actively interact with your dog and help muggin get rid of his strong willed nature. If you see the idea that your dog is too independent, take muggin to the dog park regularly, where muggin can mix, play and learn from other dogs.

Muggin is a puppy, and his diet reflects his body shape. They need one to one and a half glasses of dry dog food a day. This kind of food should be rich in protein from various sources. Foods containing omega-3 fatty acids will help keep the small joints healthy and functioning properly. Like many small breeds, muggin dogs are prone to weight gain and obesity. If you let them eat, your idiot will eat too much, so if you notice that they gain weight when they grow up, reduce the amount of food you provide, or arrange a veterinarian visit to get some personalized guidance on healthy feeding. Many people believe that puppies need less exercise, but this is not the case with muggin! Their energy level is moderate, and they need 45 minutes to an hour of special exercise every day.

Muggin Breed History

The hybrid, known as muggin, is a new breed of dog with no detailed history. Muggin's two varieties are bred to create hybrids with a long history.

Many of the success of crossbreeding can be attributed to the marketing of these dogs as "designer breeds.". The development of designer variety is because some people want some characteristics of variety X and some characteristics of variety y. Therefore, designer variety XY development. To understand this hybrid, you need to know about the two purebred dogs muggin comes from. Mujin dog is the result of crossbreeding between purebred pug and purebred Miniature Pinscher or Miniature Pinscher dog. So we need to look at the origins of these two purebred species. They are also known as the Pinscher, Miniature Pinscher, Pug Pinscher, Pug Pinscher and the original Karin pinscher. Now, however, in addition to pug and Miniature Pinscher, there are other breeds that make up the gene pool of the Karin pinscher. Because of this, mukin and Karin pinsche were separated. The American mixed breed club has accepted the name of the pug min bin cross. Pugs were originally a Chinese breed, they were companions, not working dogs of any kind. In the Han Dynasty, they were royal dogs. At the same time, Japan and Tibet also have dogs that are very much like pugs. Pugs came to Europe through trade with the Dutch, who then brought muggin to Europe. They were named mopshond and attracted the attention of the European royal family.

Miniature Pinscher

 The shape of the Miniature Pinscher is similar to that of a Doberman Scheer, but much smaller. The ancestor of the Miniature Pinscher is unclear, although most people think the breed is old and may have existed for 2000 years. Nevertheless, detailed descriptions of the species only began to appear in the 19th century. It is believed that Miniature Pinscher comes from the Pinscher family in Germany; it is also believed that Italian Greyhound and Dachshund are part of the background of Miniature Pinscher. In the late 19th century, the development of mini pinscher was in progress, Pinscher krub was founded in Germany. At the beginning of the 20th century, mini pincers came to the United States, where muggin began to become popular. The mini pincers Club of the United States was founded, and the American Dog Club recognized this breed in 1929. Although the breed was originally used to control the number of mice, muggin is now primarily a companion dog. Pug originated in Han Dynasty of China, from 206 BC to 200 AD. 

Pug

The emperor of China owned the pugs and regarded muggin as a member of the royal family. Evidence of dogs similar to pugs was found in ancient Tibet and Japan. When the dogs were brought to Europe by Dutch merchants in the 15th and 16th centuries, muggin was named mopshond and welcomed by the royal family. The variety has been given other names: Carlin in France, dogillo in Spain, mops in Germany and cagarino in Italy. By the 19th century, there were two main breeding lines in Britain. One of them is the Morrison line, known to be built on Queen Charlotte's royal dog. The other was created by Lord and ravelobid eresby, based on dogs from Hungary and Russia. In Victorian times, people saw pugs on postcards, statues and paintings, and they were very popular. After the civil war, this breed came to the United States and was recognized by the American dog club in 1885.

The Pug was imported to the United States after the civil war. It was recognized by the American dog club in 1885 and was called pug. The origin of Min pin can be traced back to Germany hundreds of years ago. It's the house that protects them from all kinds of pests. Most dog owners think Minpin is much older than this, maybe thousands of years ago. However, there is no detailed history to support this. Most people believe that this breed comes from the German Pinscher strain. Maybe there are some Greyhound and greyhound on that line. They were once known as rehpinsche. This is their name when they came to North America in 1919 and renamed it in 1972. Mini pinscher club was founded in the early 20th century, while AKC recognized min pin in 1929. Today, mini pinscher is a family dog, a companion.
