Woman reveals what a pug and German shepherd cross looks like: ‘gremlin’

Dogs come in all shapes and sizes, and new mixes can pop up owing to canines’ ability to copulate with one another.

One very unusual blend reduced a dog groomer to laughter after they came across a pug and German Shepherd mix.

Vanessa De Prophetis, who runs Perfect Pooches from her home, in Niagara Falls, Canada, regularly shares clips of her four-legged clients to her TikTok page, @girlwithedogs.

De Prophetis posted a clip to her page last month, claiming people have “never seen” a dog like this before, as she groomed an adorable mutt, aptly named Goblin.

She said: “I assure you that you have never seen a dog like this before. At first glance his body resembles a German Shepherd, but where does that curly tail come from? Place your bets on his unique mix, but you will never guess it. This is Goblin, and he’s a pug and German shepherd mix.

“Now you can use your imagination on how in fact this happened, but I personally would like to have a conversation with the individual who is responsible for this. While I assume this was an oopsie, somewhere out there there’s a very determined pug daddy who must be held accountable for making every owner from this litter laugh for the next 15 years.”

She raved about Goblin, saying: “I must admit he is exceptionally cute, in his own little gremlin way, and his personality is outstanding.”

De Prophetis, who’s been a professional pet groomer for more than 10 years, talked viewers through the grooming process, including sharing some excellent slow-motion footage of Goblin being blow-dried.

She continued: “After his bath, I towel him dry, and I spray him down in our quick dry spray and he is very excited to show you how adorable he looks, in the not so happy hoody. During his blow dry I noticed that my favorite thing about him is his flapping nostrils. While the pug part of him tried to stay positive, the German shepherd part was not enthused.

“And that makes for a frowning leprechaun. After he is dry, I de-shed this majestic mongrel, with the EquiGroomer, and then I clip his nails. Pugs are usually difficult for nail clipping, and naturally he had to give me some sass. So I gave him the finger.

“I spray this jolly man in our jellybean cologne and Goblin is all finished. He made me laugh for an hour straight. And that only continued as he bucked around my yard. Thank you so much for watching, I hope you enjoyed the goofy Goblin.”

De Prophetis’ video, which can be seen here, was jokingly captioned: “Ok, who photoshopped this?” It’s been seen more than 24 million times, as people fell in love with Goblin’s unique look.

Sweetums reckoned: “I refuse to believe this isn’t just two pugs in a trench coat.”

Sydney commented: “I feel so weird about this, he’s adorable but confusing.”

“I love this mostly because I know that pugs were genetically modified to be short and stubby and this is actually how they’re supposed to look,” Scarlett Tuck pointed out.

While Plague raved: “He’s beautiful. I’ve never seen such a great mix.”

Website 101dogbreeds explained this particular cross is known as a “shug,” saying: “The Shug dog is a medium sized breed developed by crossing the German Shepherd and Pug.

“Taking to both its parents as far as its physical trait is concerned, the Shug has a stocky, chubby look along with a deep, broad, chest, and a short-muzzled snout just as the Pug. Its ears may be erect like the German Shepherd or floppy as that of the Pug. Its tail also bears a striking resemblance to that of a Pug, curling comfortably on its back.”

Newsweek reached out to De Prophetis for comment.
