What To Expect When You Have A Pug

Jul 12, 2008
Having a Pug dog can be a lot of fun. Pugs are considered a toy dog breed, with a medium-small body. They weigh between thirteen and twenty pounds, and stand from twelve to fourteen inches tall, generally never getting bigger than that. Pugs have a wrinkly face and large, dark eyes that truly adds to their attractiveness and cuddliness. When they are excited, their eyes light up and have a lot of expression in them.

A toy dog breed, Pugs have a medium-small body. They weigh in at thirteen to twenty pounds, and stand from twelve to fourteen inches tall. Pugs have a wrinkly face and large, dark eyes that light up when they are excited. Their eyes tend to have a lot of expression in them.

It has grown in popularity over the years. It was originally breed in China, moving on to Japan and other countries, and eventually to England. Many of the monarchs in Europe have enjoyed this dog because of its personality, and it is a favorite among royalty and other discriminating people throughout the world.

Particularly during the first few years, Pugs have a tremendous amount of energy. They are often more difficult to train though, as they don't enjoy the training sessions because they get bored with them. They tend to be very rambunctious, but they are also very playful with a great sense of humor.

Having so much energy it would make sense for them to enjoy walks. They do, but can't get much outdoor activity, as they have short noses and tend to have trouble breathing with excessive exercise. They are also very sensitive to hot and cold temperatures.

Pugs are not aggressive dogs, and while they enjoy going for walks, they are sensitive to hot and cold temperatures and have a short nose which affects their breathing and limits how long they can spend outdoors exercising.

Altogether, the Pug dog can be a wonderful companion dog. It gets along well with humans and animal pets, making it an easy addition to any family. It will come to you ready to bond with its owner, and be fiercely loyal to that owner for a lifetime. It will be eager to please, have a lot of energy, and will often entertain you (or your friends) for the attention. While it isn't one of the easier breeds to train, it is playful and its clownish personality makes up for the lack of ease in training.

If you are considering getting a Pug for your family, you should check with local breeders who sell them healthy and with good breeding. If you buy your Pug as a puppy, it will be cute and little, with the adorable wrinkles already in its face. Bought so young, you will be its human, and it will be your loyal companion for a lifetime.
