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.

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.

  • 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.
