About the Pug breed.

Pugs have been treasured pets of royalty for thousands of years, from China to Holland and beyond, and these regal canines have managed to retain their gentle, humble attitude as well as their happy-go-lucky temperament. Most importantly, they're happy whether you live in a humble home or rule over a castle here in Kentucky. With a Pug in your life, you'll undoubtedly feel like royalty—the tiara is optional.

What is a Pug?

Pugs are famous for their puggy and cute features and endearing lovable personalities. This breed is great for laid-back houses and those who enjoy to spoil their pets. Pug are a tiny bit naughty but adored by people who owns one. These are calm dogs who aren't prone to excessive barking, digging, or chewing. Pugs get along well with other dogs and are strong enough to be trusted around children. They enjoy being around other people and can be quite affectionate. They are good companion dogs, as their grouping suggests.

The Pug is one of the world's oldest breeds, with origins dating back to before 400 BC. The Pug is thought to have originated in Asia and is a descendant of the shorthaired Pekingese. They could be the offspring of a little Bulldog or a smaller variant of the French Mastiff, according to some. According to the AKC, the name pug is derived from the Latin word "pugnus," which means "fist," to represent the fact that a pug's face resembles a clinched fist.

Characteristics

Pug ears are small and delicate, either rose-shaped (where the inside of the ear looks like a rose) or button-shaped (where the inside of the ear looks like a button). Pug eyes are large, spherical, and protrude from the face somewhat, making them more vulnerable to injury. Pugs have dark eyes that glitter, but "when stimulated, they are full of fire," according to the breed standard. Their nose is black, and their muzzle is short and full of lovely creases.

Care and Living With Pugs:

Pugs are extremely easy to care for and have risk of becoming obese if their nutrition and activity are not regularly monitored. They do not perform well in hot, humid weather due to their short muzzle and must be monitored for heatstroke. Pugs do have a tendency to snore, which is due to their short muzzle. The prominent eyeballs are readily harmed and must be kept moist at all times. Pugs are a hardy breed that can live to be 14 or 15 years old.

Bathing (about once a month) and brushing (with a medium-bristle brush or a rubber grooming mitt) can control excessive shedding in pugs. And those charming facial wrinkles need additional attention since if they're moist and need bathing. After bathing, completely dry your pug's wrinkles and rub them out in between baths with a dry cotton ball. Pugs' nails must to be clipped on a regular basis, as they do not naturally wear down from spending a lot of time outside. Pugs can be prone to gum disease, so brushing their teeth on a regular basis is essential.

Pugs are relatively low-maintenance dogs if you devote yourself to them. They don't need much grooming, and they don't need much activity. You'll have a happy puggle puppy if you can give it the care what it needs!
