Pugs originate in China dating back to the Han dynasty. Some historians believe they are related to the Tibetan Mastiff. Pugs can be black, fawn, apricot fawn, sliver fawn and brindle. The most common is regular fawn. The traditional colors are black and fawn. Pugs are known for being great family dogs. They are great with kids. They are sometimes called “Velcro Dogs.” That means they are clingy and lap dogs. You shouldn’t leave pugs alone too long. They thrive on companionship. They’re very playful and affectionate! Since they’re part of the toy breed they’re very, very tiny. A full grown pug may weigh 20 pounds or so at most. They can’t lick you because of they’re short faces and short tongue. They make great apartment dogs because they’re tiny. They aren’t that active. You should take them for one to walks a day. The way they were bred makes it makes it hard to breathe. They don’t do well in extreme weather. These dogs aren’t hypoallergenic. They shed regularly. They shed the most in the Spring. Like all short faced dogs this can happen. Due to trauma pug’s eye can pop out if they’re sockets. But this is very rare! It’s very likely this would never happen. The same thing can happen to French bulldogs and breeds like that. They aren’t very athletic, they’re inside dogs. They also suffer from hip dysplasia. I’m not going to go into all that detail though. You might’ve been told pugs can’t swim. That’s not true. Like all dogs it’s innate for dogs to swim. They live 12-15 years. But that’s the shortest they can live. At the longest your pug should live 15-20 years.
I hope you decided if you want a pug!
