pugThe Pug is one of the cutest and most commonly seen dog breed. One feature of this breed that you can instantly notice is the head which is covered in wrinkles like a small version of a Shar Pei or Bulldog. Pugs have an extremely short muzzle which looks scrunched up and ends with a small black nose. You will often see full expression from their cute faces and large, round eyes combined with small folded ears that give them an adorable and unique face. Despite their small size, the Pug has a broad neck with a dewlap that leads to a wide, square body. Pugs have short skinny legs and a curled tail that lies on its back. Short fur covers their entire small body. The most common fur colors are fawn and black, but they can also be silver or apricot. They have the appearance of a big dog, but a small dog at heart, the Pug is also an easy to please member of the family.

Pugs were probably developed in Asia around the fifth century BC but other theories assumed that Pugs ended up in England after British forces found the dogs in China during an attack. Not only that Pugs become very popular among artists it was also chosen to be a companion in monasteries as well as fashion accessories during the Victorian Era. In 16th century, Pugs finally arrived in Europe and they quickly became adopted as a favorite pet of the wealthy. By 1885 the AKC recognize Pug breeds which has a life expectancy of 12 to15 years.

Pugs are always sweet and cheerful and these little dogs thrive on attention. Pugs are also great for playing with children due to its gentle nature but strangers and dogs will receive the same playful and loving attention a family member would. Pugs are also intelligence which makes them highly trainable but also independent and stubborn. Sensitivity to punishment makes it important to not yell at Pugs or to use a harsh voice when correcting the breed. Colds, eye weeping, allergies and skin problems are some of the most common health problem of this breed. Due to their size, many Pugs find it hard to give birth naturally and need Cesarean Sections. Another important thing for owners to remember is that Pugs will easily over eat and become obese.

Grooming a pug is simple and not time consuming. Regular baths and brushing sessions are needed and you need to clean everyday the wrinkles on their face. Pugs are active and enjoy playing games and walking but they do get tired quickly. Since pugs can become obese easily you need to make sure they exercise to keep them fit and healthy. Pugs can’t withstand harsh climates so special care should be taken to prevent this breed from getting too cold or hot.
