What is A Pug?
Pug (AKC Toy Group) Height: 14 to 18 inches. Size: Small. Weight: 14 to 18 pounds.
Availability: Widely available.
History: One of the older breeds, the Pug is believed to have originated before 400 BC in Asia.
He was a pet at Tibetan monasteries and later traveled to Japan. The Pug then came to Europe,
where the endearing little dog was the pet of royalty in several countries and even became the
official dog of the House of Orange in Holland. A Pug saved William, Prince of Orange's life by
alerting him to the approach of the Spaniards in 1572 at Hermingny. Napoleon's wife, Josephine,
sent secret messages to her husband under the collar of her Pug while she was in prison.
When the British overran the Chinese Imperial Palace in 1860, they discovered several Pugs and Pekinese,
and brought the little dogs back to England with them. The AKC recognized the Pug in 1885 and the
breed has since become a popular companion dog.
Description: A small, square and stocky dog with a large, round head, short face, deeply wrinkled
forehead and a tightly curled tail. The ears are soft and velvety, rose shape preferred.
The eyes are prominent, expressive, dark and lustrous. The teeth should meet in a slightly undershot bite.
The back is short, with a level topline. The tail curls tightly, resting on the hip. A double tail curl
is highly desirable. The Pug's smooth, fine glossy coat gives him a well-groomed appearance even with
minimal brushing. Coat colors are fawn, silver or black with black mask and other black markings including
a black "trace" (a line running from the occiput to the tail).
Don't over-feed this little dog, as he tends to put on too much weight. Like many short-nosed breeds,
the Pug is prone to respiratory trouble, and should not be over- exercised, especially in warm weather.
After bathing, dry him quickly and thoroughly to prevent chill. Expect Cesarean sections if breeding.
The delicate eyes are prone to weeping. This breed tends to wheeze and snore, but, on the whole, is a
very easy-care dog.
"A lot of dog in a small space", perky, rambunctious, loyal, affectionate and loving with a happy disposition.
Playful and charming. Clever and mischievous with a heart-winning personality. Can be a bit willful.
Bores easily with repetitive training practices.
Children: Excellent with children.
Friendliness: Fairly friendly with strangers.
Trainability: Easy to train.
Independence: Needs people a lot. Loves attention.
Other Pets: Generally good with other pets.
Combativeness: Not generally dog-aggressive.
Noise: Not a barker.
Grooming and Physical Needs:
Grooming: A little grooming needed.
Trimming & Stripping: No trimming or stripping needed.
Coat: Short coat.
Shedding: Seasonally heavy shedder.
Exercise: Very little exercise needed.
Jogging: A poor jogging companion.
Indoors: Relatively inactive indoors.
Apartments: Good for apartment living.
Outdoor Space: Does all right without a yard.
Climate: Does well in most climates.
Owner: Good for novice owners.
Longevity: Moderately long lived (12 to 15 years).
