Pug Personalities

Jul 13, 2008
Pugs are terrific dogs with a lot of personality. They are a toy breed, with a medium-small body, weighing in from thirteen to twenty pounds and are twelve to fourteen inches tall. They have a wrinkly face and big dark eyes that light up with they are excited. They have a lot of expression in their eyes. They are often companion dogs, but they have also been used as coach dogs, guard dogs and to accompany monks.

Though they have often been used as companion dogs because of their wonderful personalities, they have also been used as coach dogs and guard dogs. The name of Pug is said to have been derived from the Old English word Pugg, which was an affectionate word for a playful little devil or monkey. This dog is aptly named, if that is where it came from, as a Pug has a terrific personality.

The American Kennel Club officially recognized the breed in 1885. The Pug Dog Club of America was founded in 1931, and it has been growing in popularity ever since. He isn't considered common, but is also isn't rare. It is a favorite breed around 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.

These things make it a great addition to a family. He will stay a smaller size, and love to go for walks. While they aren't the greatest at being trained, they do try hard to please and will be fun to have around in so many ways.

If you think you'd like to get a Pug, consider getting one as a puppy, when they are tiny and adorable, with the wrinkles in their face already. There are many breeders that can sell you one with good breeding and that is healthy. Buying a Pug as a puppy ensures that it will be your loyal companion.
