About the Breed

The Pug is a beautiful, small dog breed that enchants the world with its goofy personality and big heart. This lovely dog is one of the most ancient breeds in the world, having been around for over 2000 years.

The precious Pugs are originally from Ancient China, where they were raised on the lap of luxury. According to their extensive history, these animals were the lapdogs of Emperors during ancient times. They symbolized wealth and prosperity and were owned only by those in power. During their debut in China, Pugs could only be owned if they were received as a gift from the Emperor. 

The Pug dog, who is also known as the Mopshond, joined the American Kennel Club in 1885. There is also a club called the Pug Club of America that was founded for the breed in 1931.

Appearance and Grooming

A beautiful dog in every way, the lovely Pug has a very distinctive appearance. It is small, compact, and very sturdy-looking. Some of the features that these adorable dogs are recognized for include their black masks or muzzles, cute facial wrinkles, large, dark eyes, and short, curled tails. They have short, triangular ears, and a short double coat that is shiny and fine. 

As their breed standards dictate, Pugs can be fawn, black, silver, and apricot. Most commonly, they are found in fawn coloring. Black pug puppies, although in high demand, are quite rare.

Since these dogs are considered a low-maintenance breed, grooming them requires very little effort. They should be brushed at least once per week with a grooming glove, and given a bath every 4 to six weeks. 

Temperament 

Pugs are very relaxed, calm-tempered dogs. They get along well with everyone and aren't known to have any type of destructive behavior or negative personality traits. These adorable pooches love to be around people and thrive in the presence of their families. However, because of their sensitive nature, they should be socialized at an early age to avoid them becoming shy as adults. 

Pug puppies adapt quickly to their new environments and are just as quick to bond with their new families. 

Family and Companionship

Thanks to their sweet, goofy, and kind nature, Pugs make fantastic companion pets for any type of owner. They're great for families with kids and perfect for seniors. The Pug's nature is lovey-dovey, which means this dog is a stranger to aggression. All he wants to do is cuddle, be pampered, and receive attention from his favorite humans. 

Pugs love being with people so much that they rarely leave their owner's side. Because of their affectionate nature and need for companionship, they can become anxious if separated from their humans.

Exercise 

As a low active toy breed, the Pug requires very little daily exercise. Most of these cute pooches will do fine with one or two short walks per day and a game or two indoors.

Because of their short muzzles and short, fine coat, Pugs are not equipped to handle either hot or cold weather. They should be provided with a jacket during winter and kept in the shade during summer. Exercise should also be kept at a minimum to avoid over-exertion. 

Training and Socialization

These toy-sized, loving family dogs are first and foremost people-pleasers. They crave attention and can be trained easily. With training a Pug puppy, patience and rewards are a must. Although they can sometimes be stubborn, a delicious reward can bring their focus to the task. Positive reinforcement can also go a long way in training these adorable toy puppies.

They are naturally friendly and will likely require very little socialization training to be sociable towards others. However, it is recommended to introduce them to others while they are still young to help them become less shy and more outgoing.
