Hello, My brother Michael who lives in Sydney in Australia named his dog a Pug Cross with a Jack Russell dog Zephyr. My brother's dog is a tanned brown colour with small floppy ears that are coloured black with a black nose, a black line from her head to her nose and under her nose is also black. My brother got Zephyr when she was 6 weeks old for her daughter Verity's 2nd birthday and now Verity is 11 and Zephyr is now 9 years old. Zephyr Verity's dog is such a playful, gentle, happy dog that never bits a human, loves going for short walks, loves hugs from humans and loves playing with squeaky dog toys and brings them back to you once you have thrown them for her. Zephyr love you to squeak the toy before throwing it. Love from Natalie from Australia
