Pugs are a breed whose origin is unknown. They are believed to have appeared in China, but their current appearance was achieved in England in the previous century. Pugs are one of the small breeds since the females grow to a height of 25 cm with a weight of 5 kg, while the males grow to a height of 30 cm and weigh 8 kg. Their lifespan is between 12 to 15 years. The pug’s body is compact, muscular and square-shaped. They are prone to putting on weight, so their food should be portioned. The colour of their coat ranges from cream to peach, grey to completely black. Dogs with a lighter coat always have a dark snout and ears. Their coat is fairly short and it doesn’t shed a lot, so they are quite vulnerable to the cold and when exposed to the sun for longer periods. The pug’s skin is quite sensitive and requires care. The folds on its head also require special care, especially when they are walked more often. Their ears should be checked and cleaned occasionally. Pugs are smart, curious and eager to learn, but they demand a creative training approach. They love children and the people they live with, but are also friendly with guests. They are a unique dog and a clown at heart with a brilliant sense of humour and a strong sense of pride at the same time. They are always ready for fun and games and they are happy to learn. They are very calm, adaptable and sociable. Pugs are emotional and intelligent and when they are up to something, they commit to it entirely. Above all, pugs should be raised gently, without harsh words, raised voices or punishment. Motivational and clever methods should be used to get the pug to obey. Training should start as soon as possible because older pugs are less ready to accept commands and their stubbornness starts coming through. This dog doesn’t require a lot of activity, but it needs constant company at home, since it can bark and become destructive when left alone. Due to their short snouts, or rather their “lack of one”, pugs have trouble breathing and snore when they sleep. This might seem like a problem at first, but with time, their “rumbling” grows on you. They are relatively good guard dogs because their bark will signal the arrival of a stranger. Still, when the pug realises that this is a trusted person, it will make friends in no time and gladly show off what it can do. Pugs make beautiful pets, especially for a family with grandparents who are babysitting grandchildren, since one to two walks a day are all it takes for their daily activity needs to be fulfilled.
