    20,000+ are bred in Australia each year, for racing. Thousands never make it as far as rescue groups, unfortunately.

    I would maybe go for a small terrier breed. Or go to a shelter and grab a wee terrier mix of some description.

    I have a wee shih tzu/foxy x who is 1. Small 2. Runs for miles and 3. Adorable as all hell, see picture LOL. She ticks all the boxes. Her legs are only about 2 or inches long but she can go for ages, and keep up with the bike easily. And when we arent biking or walking she is happy to cuddle/sleep at home.

    Anyway, thats why I suggest something with maybe some terrier in it, they usually have lots of energy for running and they really like it.

    Funny I see a lot of pug x cavalier and pug x jrt at the dog park and they are seriously energetic and athletic. I am not sure about shedding though. You can invest further.

    Minis (mini schnauzer) will happily run with you as well as border terriers. Shedding is not a bit issue for minis (and border terrier...not 100% sure)

    All of the Pug x's that came through my rescue were very energetic too and nothing like a Pug, which is why they usually ended up in rescue. Most would have been easily classified as hyper regardless of breed cross... maybe it is a hidden temp gene in the Pug and only comes out when crossed with another breed.
    A pessimist sees the glass as half empty;
    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    Ok, I'm just reiterating my retraction of my 'pug crosses aren't cute' statement.

    Look at this little bubba! Available for adoption at Pets Haven (Vic) now. His name is Toad! Perfect!
