Pug Facts

Is the Pug breed right for you?

Pug puppy1. The Pug's clownish personality, playful nature and adaptability make him a fun companion in whatever you do.

2. Pug owners must take caution, as short-faced breeds are more prone to breathing problems, heat stroke and other health issues.

3. The Pug may be a little stubborn, but never aggressive and certainly always good-natured. 

4. The Pug owner does not need to be a professional groomer, but must be prepared to keep the Pug's short coat in top condition.

5. Weight control is an issue with Pugs, as they certainly enjoy eating and need their owners to set healthy limits.

I have always wanted a pug but they were always to much money. I do plan to get one one day though. Are they really bad? :)

Not true. They can be agressive and bite.
