Pug

Overall the experience was good. Our puppy is fantastic and in excellent heath and temperament. We had a medical situation with the first puppy we wanted to bring home that we became aware of when the pre-travel vet check picked up on it. PuppySpot understood our concerns and we ended up finding and getting a different puppy from PuppySpot. One thing I did observe is that there was very little communication from PuppySpot during the process of finding another puppy after the first puppy situa...

Pug Characteristics

Pugs are actively bred as lap dogs and crave human companionship. They’re very sensitive, and though they're ideal for apartment living because of their size and personality, they will not appreciate being left home alone for long periods of time. These dogs can be a bit stubborn when they're being house trained, but overall, they're very affectionate and are perfect candidates for beginner pet parents.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Determined

Folklore states that the Pug's name comes from the Latin word for "fist" because his face resembles a human fist. The pug's face will bring smiles to nearly anyone who sees it, and its lovable personality will charm the rest. Their heads are large and round, as are their eyes. They have deep and distinct wrinkles on their faces. Legend has it that the Chinese, who are masters of breeding Pugs, prized these wrinkles because they resembled good luck symbols in their language.

 

Full-grown pugs typically weigh in between 14-18 pounds and stand around 10-14 inches tall at the shoulder. Often found with fawn, black, or white coats, their small and stout stature makes them perfect apartment companions and are best kept indoors. Pugs, like Bulldogs, don't do well in extreme climates because the shape of their nose makes it difficult for them to regulate their temperatures. 

 

Pugs are also known to enjoy eating just a little too much. It is important to monitor their diet and provide them with ample exercise, or else they are prone to excess weight gain. Pugs have a short, double coat and are known for extreme shedding. Regular brushing and grooming will be necessary in order to keep your pug clean and happy.

How dog-friendly is Georgia?

With its beautiful hiking trails, great weather, and pet-friendly laws, Georgia is a good place to bring a pup into your family.


Pawsafe, a reputable site for pet safety information, ranks Georgia the 17th most pet-friendly state in the country. They found that Georgia has the highest concentration of dog-friendly trails. Of the 1,188 trails in the state, 987 are dog-friendly (83%). Pawsafe ranked Georgia 12th for pet-friendly attractions and activities.


However, Safewise conducted a similar study in which Georgia was ranked as the 8th least pet-friendly state. Georgia took a hit for low pet-friendly rentals with only 27% of rentals accepting dogs and cats.


Both studies evaluate states for their animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails.

Is Atlanta a pet-friendly city?

Wallethub reviewed the 100 largest cities in the country to rank them by pet-friendliness. In their study, Atlanta – Georgia’s largest city by far – ranked 12th. Good job, Atlanta!


Specifically, the city was 56th for outdoor pet-friendliness, 11th for pet budget, and 25th for pet health and wellness. The city has the 5th lowest dog insurance premiums. It also has the 4th most animal shelters per capita.


A Trust for Public Land (TPL) study reviews the nation’s 100 largest cities to see which has the most dog parks. In the study, Atlanta is ranked 58th with 0.8 parks per 100,000 residents.

A few more statistics for Georgia’s dog lovers

Thirty-seven percent of Georgia residents own a dog. This is just below the national average of 40%. 


According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Georgia are German Shepherds, Labrador Retrievers, and Beagles. Georgia loves a working family dog! In Atlanta, the most popular breeds are Lab mixes, Chihuahua, Goldens, Shih Tzus, Pitbulls, and Yorkies. 


As a whole, the state seems to prefer dogs over cats. Georgia has a 1.15 dog to cat ratio. This is the 10th highest in the country.

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Georgia

Georgia saved 136,941 dogs and cats during 2020. This is 14,510 more animals than in 2019, but approximately 14,735 were killed the past year. Out of 159 animal shelters, only 60 have a no-kill policy. The overall save rate for the state is 82.7%. We like that Georgia seems to be going in a positive direction, and hope to see this progres continue.
