Breed Information: PugBreed Description: The Pug has a square, compact body, strong muscular legs, a tightly curled tail and a flat, wrinkled face that bears a sweet expression and looks as though it's covered by soot. This is a loyal, affectionate, breed that can be clown-like in its antics and tends to get along well with both people and other family pets.

Group: Toy Group

Purpose of Breed: Companion

Country of Origin: China

Average Size: Dogs range from 12 to 14 inches and 13 to 20 pounds; Bitches range from 10 to 12 inches and 13 to 18 pounds.

Color(s): Typically silver, apricot-fawn or black, with clearly-defined black markings on the face.

Coat Type: The pug has a short, smooth coat of fine glossy hair.

Grooming: The Pug's coat is easy to maintain and only needs a vigorous brushing once or twice a week. This breed is a minimal shedder and requires standard care for ears, pads and nails. Eyes have a tendency to weep and should be examined regularly.

Exercise Needs: Pugs need only a moderate amount of daily exercise to maintain their physical health. They are a suitable breed for small homes or apartments. They do not tolerate heat well and should be briskly dried if wet.

Temperament: Pugs are outgoing and social dogs that enjoy the company of both adults and children. They are even-tempered, but can be willful and stubborn at times. They are cheerful, playful, clever and mischievous all at the same time. They are alert, loyal and suspicious enough around strangers that they will sound the alarm when they feel it is necessary.


Common Ailments: Susceptible to patellar luxation, epilepsy, breed specific encephalitis, eye problems and skin problems.

Life Expectancy: Averages 12-15 years.

Trivia: Napoleon's wife Josephine used her Pug, "Fortune" to carry secret messages under his collar to her husband while imprisoned at Les Carmes.

Milo, my 2 year old pug, was adopted by me after his first owner died unexpectedly and wasn't found for 5-6 days. Milo went in the cupboard, got into his bag of food and was healthy and happy when discovered. He's a survivor!
