About pugs

Pugs were originally bred as companion dogs. They are charming and cheerful and are perfect for families. They are eager to please and love being near their families. They aren't very active and do well in all-size living spaces.

While everyone adores a wrinkly Pug-mug, it is important to keep these areas clean of excess moisture or debris. Cleaning their wrinkles with a cotton pad or baby wipes at least once a day will prevent irritation or even a possible skin infection.


Pugs are companion dogs that don't like being left alone for several hours by themselves. While they are an intelligent breed, their personality quirks of being stubborn or easily distracted can make training a challenge for a first-time dog owner.
