Facts - Overview

Here in our company, we are more than willing to provide future dog parents with all the essential Pug breed info. This is one of our commitments to ensure a happy and fulfilling relationship with your dog. In history, the Pug dog breed helped represent status.

The most notable features of Pugs include their prominent eyes and a flat face that resembles a human fist. This is why it is a common belief that the name Pug originated from the Latin word “pugnus”, which means “fist”. They are small and have burly bodies; perfect for living inside apartments and households without spacious areas. The bodies of purebred Pugs have coats with the color of either black or different shades of “fawn”. They also have a distinctive black “mask” that covers a region of the facial area. Of course, this mask is not noticeable in black Pugs.

When it comes to a Pug’s personality, they are known to be very loyal and affectionate creatures. They are cheerful, energetic, and also very intelligent. However, their playful nature can make them a little more challenging to train than other breeds. But once you get their attention when training, they can quickly learn impressive tricks such as play dead, rollover, high five, and the all-time favorite; sit.

Pugs show their affection by being close with their human companions. Expect them to follow you around, get between your feet, or jump onto your lap. This is one of their most adorable traits. Fortunately, it is easy to keep a Pug’s skin healthy for constant petting.Since they have a relatively short coat, grooming them can be easy with little maintenance.

Overall, Pugs are suitable for individuals and families who want a new member that’s sweet, easy to maintain, lively, and small. If you want to learn more, you can read more about their personality, grooming needs, and personality.


Facts - Personality

A Pug’s personality has a lot of childlike traits that most dog parents find charming. Although they are not built for fulfilling duties such as hunting or retrieving, they can easily be the best choice for the companionship they offer. They are full of energy, affectionate, loyal, and willful. Their small size makes them suitable for being carried and snuggled with. They are usually very friendly towards people especially if treated with love and proper care.

High Energy:

The first thing you may notice in a Pug puppy is their high energy. They rarely hide in a corner and shy away from human contact, especially if they’re well taken care of. This, in addition to their adorable appearance, easily makes them one of the best play partners.

Socially Sensitive:

If they want to play, they sometimes like to relax and just rest on your lap. They do this especially if they know you’re doing something else such as studying or watching a film. They are often laid-back when you need them to, or highly energetic if you want to play.

Affectionate:

They are rarely loud while playing, but they surely are full of energy. They can be comical, thanks to their distinctive features and expressive eyes. Furthermore, they love to hang around where there are people, especially to its owners.

Intelligent:

A Pug’s temperament is easy to understand. They want to use their energy to play, explore, and socialize.They are smart and if you know how to get their attention, you can take advantage of their liveliness to make training easier.


Facts - Care

Puppies, just like young children, require proper care for a healthy development. Thankfully, there is nothing difficult even for a new dog parent when it comes to Pug care. The Pug breed is regarded as relatively low-maintenance. They do not need a lot of space indoors and can also be walked or even carried outside. Thankfully, they are also a breed that isn’t “yappy”. Even though they’re playful, their energy is easily manageable.

When it comes to Pug puppy care, it is essential for them to get enough sleep for growth and overall health. Since they naturally have high energy, you need frequent play sessions in a cool environment. Remember that their flat snouts are not ideal for high heat and too much humidity, which is why it is encouraged to allow them to get their exercise indoors.

Be mindful of your Pug puppy’s eyes during play. Since their eyes are bulgy and large in relation to their faces, allowing them to play alone unattended might get them injured. Thankfully, they are very entertaining to watch, so you can take it as an opportunity to relieve your own stress. It is also important to monitor their food intake since they are enthusiastic eaters despite their small build.


Facts - Grooming

Apperance

Pugs have one of the most memorable looks in all dog breeds. They are very popular for families and dog shows. Their cartoonish appearance has also earned them a place in some movies and various animations. They have extremely short muzzles, bulging eyes, and wrinkly faces with an almost “worried” expression. They also usually have black or fawn colored coats, black “masks”, smooth fur, and silky soft ears.

Size and Weight

Being classified as a toy breed, Pugs are known to be quite small. The height of male Pugs can be between 12 and 14 inches while females stand between 10 and 12 inches. They can weigh anywhere around 13 to 20 pounds; limited to a maximum of 18 pounds for female pugs. Despite their size, they love to eat. This contributes to their stocky bodies. Problems related to their weight gain can easily be avoided by controlling their meals and treats.

Coat and Color

Their coat is smooth and short, but they also shed quite a lot. Their bodies are usually colored black or in any shade of fawn such as apricot-fawn, silver-fawn, and so on. They almost always have a black mask that covers their entire nose and mouth region. Along the length of their backs, there is usually a visible “trace” of black fur. When it comes to their masks, there used to be the “Morrison” Pugs and “Willoughby” Pugs. The Morrison Pugs have a more defined black mask on the nose and a clearer trace at the back. The Willoughby Pugs, however, have a less visible trace. Their masks also cover a broader area of their face than Morrison Pugs. As these two types of Pugs interbred through the years, most pugs today have a combination of their traits.

Grooming Needs

It is incredibly easy to learn how to groom your Pug. Given their short fur and small bodies, Pugs have no need for special trimmings. They tend to shed well themselves so there’s also no need to trim their coats. The use of fragrant dog soaps or shampoos is also not a crucial part of Pug grooming since they do not usually have odor. The only thing you need to remember is to brush them regularly.


Facts - Health

Would-be dog parents need to learn the proper Pug nutrition to make sure their companions remain healthy and lively. For a dog their size, they have a fairly long lifespan of 12 to 14 years. But since they are prone to weight problems, it is important to control their food intake to only ½-1 cup of high-quality kibble, twice per day. They may have tendencies to beg for more food since they truly love eating. This in addition to lack of exercise can easily lead to obesity. Aside from food, the next thing they desire is human interaction. So you should use vigorous play to give them exercise while staying indoors.

A common issue regarding a Pug’s health is their protruding eyes. Without proper attention, they might get eye injuries and irritations given their playfulness. Possible eye problems include keratoconjunctivitis sicca, proptosis, and entropion. Also pay special attention to their eyes when bathing to prevent soap and shampoo from getting in.

Finally, Pugs may suffer from hereditary health conditions such as hemivertebrae or “screwtail”that may also affect the spine. They could also develop necrotizing meningoencephalitis, which is an irreversible inflammation in the Pug’s brain. To help spot these potential health problems early, it is advised for you to perform weekly to bimonthly checkups.


Facts - History

Part of the joys of being a dog parent is learning and appreciating the long Pug history. The history of Pugs dates back to more than 2,000 years. Originating from China, they were the preferred companion for royal families as well as monks in China and various parts of Europe. They were also referred to as the Dutch Bulldog, Dutch Mastiff, and the Chinese Pug.

In the age of Chinese dynasties, Pugs were the favorite dog companions of powerful leaders and were also given as gifts. The popularity of Pugs eventually made their way into Tibet where they served as companions to monks. There was also evidence that Pugs also reached Japan from China.

In the 16th century, Pugs were introduced to Europe by the Dutch East India Company who traded them from China. Back then, Pugs were also called “Mopshond”, which is still uncommonly used to this day. The unique and apparently, royal appearance of Pugs made them favorites among royal families in Europe. They were also named the official dog of the House of Orange in Hollandafter a Pug supposedly saved the life of Prince William.

From then on, the Pug’s popularity in Europe and the rest of the world grew. Pugs were also known by many names aside from the ones mentioned above. Examples are Carlin, Dogullo, Mops, and Caganlino.
