The Pug is one of the oldest dog breeds in the world and these days they are hugely popular. They say that once you are a Pug lover you won't be able to live life without one! Some people can't stop at one and get two or three of these cute little dogs.
Pugs tend to have square, compact bodies with deep chests and well-formed muscles. Their coat is short and glossy, and most often is fawn-coloured, but they can also come in apricot fawn, silver fawn, and black.
Pugs are great companion dogs that are easy to train. They are very loving and like to escort you wherever you go, even if it's just to the toilet. They are intuitive dogs that will comfort you when you are sad or will do silly things to cheer you up.
They know how to read your feelings, but will also communicate their own feelings to you through grunting, snorting and puffing around! If Pugs don't get what they want they can turn into divas on four paws. No other dog breed has this special way of communicating through their various facial expressions and verbal communications...Pugs are simply great entertainment.
Pugs are well suited to apartments and small dwellings and will cope without a yard. However, they do not cope well in hot or cold weather and therefore should be kept indoors at a comfortable temperature.
