Pug

Pug


Height: 10-11 inches

Weight: 14-18 lbs.

Life Span: 12-14 yrs.

Breed Group: Companion Dogs

Overview
Pugs are playful, outgoing, loving, and very responsive to their families. They learn quickly and can do well in obedience classes.

Most get along well with children and strangers and are friendly with other animals. Pugs are a good choice for city families with children.

Appearance
The pug's coat is fine, smooth, soft, short, and glossy. Coat color is silver, apricot-fawn, or black with a black mask and small, velvety black ears.

Large, dark eyes are prominent on the short, blunt, wrinkled muzzle. The body is square and stocky, the tail tightly curled and twisted.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
Pugs need only a quick brushing once a week, though their head wrinkles need frequent cleaning with cotton balls moistened with water. A leisurely walk around the block suits pugs fine.

Origins
This delightful breed originated in ancient China, where it served as a loyal companion to royalty.

Special Alerts
It is especially important to obtain a pug from a reputable breeder.

Breed-related health concerns: deformities of the nose and mouth that can interfere with breathing, Legg-Perthes disease, patellar luxation, Demodex mange, eye and eyelid problems, susceptibility to heatstroke, bladder stones, urethral obstruction.
