Pug

This small and sturdy breed originated in China during the Han Dynasty (206 B.C. to 200 A.D.) and graced the opulent homes of the emperors. It has been noted that even Marie Antoinette and Josephine Bonaparte also owned the beloved Pug. Pugs are typically 10-14 inches high, normally weigh 14-18 pounds, and generally have a lifespan of 12-15 years. They are great for apartment living, do well with new dog owners, and are an excellent breed for an elderly person. The Pug desires to please you more than anything else, and will entertain you with their amusing antics. Due to their being a companion breed and very sensitive they dislike being alone. Pugs are very affectionate to their families, great with children, friendly to strangers, and good with other pets in the home. This happy and faithful breed may be easy to train as long as they are rewarded in a positive manner for they are quite sensitive. Pugs are not intelligent intuitively, but are smart because they have a great memory, and are extremely adaptable. As with any breed early training and socialization is advised. Though the Pug has a short, smooth coat it is a double-coat and therefore there is a great deal of shedding. The breed is typically black, silver, or fawn-colored. They are easy to groom; regular brushing, and a monthly bath should be sufficient. They do need their nails trimmed routinely, as well as their teeth brushed daily.This is a playful and fun breed but is on the lower energy scale, so they would be more than happy resting on the couch with you. The Pug has a brachycephalic facial structure, and therefore doesn’t do well in hot, humid, or even cold weather. It is imperative they are watched carefully in such weather. Also, because of their facial structure they can suffer from oxygen deficiency, and also have a propensity to snore. Otherwise, the Pug is a wonderful breed to own and with routine veterinary visits, love, and care they should live a long and happy life.
