Overview
The Pug has unknown origins which have triggered debate among Pug lovers. It is believed that this dog originated before 400 BC in Asia, however one cannot be certain. Some believe that Dutch traders brought this breed back from the East. It is said that this breed descended from a shorthaired Pekingese while others believe that it was the result of crossing a small Bulldog.
Character
The Pug can be somewhat sensitive to the tone of someone's voice, however recovers fairly quickly. Don't underestimate the size of this dog, he is very devoted and makes a good watchdog. This is a big dog in a small dogs body, making him very sturdy and very devoted. The Pug should never be timid, and should never show signs of aggression. He should always be friendly and playful.
Temperament
The Pug is a happy and cheerful little fellow that gets along with just about anyone. This breed can become very jealous at times, but does exceptionally well around strangers. The Pug does extremely well around children, even children that are prone to pestering a dog, as this is a very sturdy and hardy breed. He can do very well around other dogs, but should be socialized at an early age like other breeds.
Care
Grooming wise, the Pug does not require much maintenance. The muzzle area should be cleaned as this breed has the tendency to drool. Under the folds of skin should also be cleaned to avoid any dry or itchy skin. Bathing should only be performed when necessary, as it will remove the natural oils from the skin and coat.
Coat
The Pug has a very fine, short, and soft coat. The coat should be smooth and glossy and neither hard nor wooly. The Pug sports a distinct black and soft muzzle. The hair is slightly broken along the curly tail.
Training
The Pug can be willful at times but is eager to please. Making training fun will be sure to catch this dogs attention and keep it. A variety of training methods work best with the Pug, as they bore quickly. Making training fun will be sure to keep this dogs attention. This is one of the harder breeds to train, so consistency is a must. Obedience training at an early age is recommended to make training more efficient and easier at a later stage in life.
Activity
Pugs are lively little dogs, however they are relatively active indoors and do well without a yard. This breed does love long walks, but proper water should always be provided as this breed is prone to breathing problems and tires quickly. This breed is excellent for an apartment environment. The Pug adapts well to many different environments, and will take as much exercise as provided. However, he has the tendency to overeat and become lazy, so exercise must be provided on a regular basis.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Pug puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Pug I want a male pug. Is there anything I should know about male puppies? Do they spray and if so can it be prevented? Are the males aggressive over their food or space? I have 2 cats - are Pugs good around non canine house pets? Is it true they fight other male Pugs?

Dog's do not spray, they mark. Only dogs whom are not house-trained properly will mark. Using positive reinforcement training methods will house train your puppy quickly and effectively. Some non-neutered dogs have been known to mark inside the house, but again, it starts with training. But neutering your puppy at between 6 - 8 months old is the best thing to do for him. As for aggression, that all depends on breeding and how the puppy is raised. A puppy raised to be calm around food and introduced to cats correctly should have no problem getting along. As for being aggressive towards other male pugs, again it is all in socialization, training and having your dog neutered. Contact your local positive reinforcement trainer and sign up for puppy training classes and obedience classes as soon as your pup is old enough.

The Pug can be considered a 'first time owners' dog as long as the owner has done his/her research. This breed is a fun loving companion dog, but they can be a bit stubborn in the training department. Positive reinforcement training methods are the best way to train the Pug breed, this will get you the results you want as fast as possible. Contact your local positive reinforcement trainer to see if they have puppy classes available and if they do group or private classes. The Pug is a versatile breed of dog that can happily live with anyone from a young couple, to a family with kids to an elderly couple/person. As long as their exercise needs are met, an hour a day and they get all the cuddles in the world, they are happy.

Pug Mating I have a Pug. She is 1 year old ..but she is still so tiny. Can I mate her with a big bug as my daughter has 2 pugs she is breeding now? What should I do? She is 10 times smaller than the other pugs. I do not understand why she is so small..I am trying to read about pugs to understand them

Unless you are under the direction of a reputable, responsible, qualified and knowledgeable breeder, you should not be breeding. Since you have come to the internet to ask your question, I am assuming your daughter has no idea whether or not your Pug can mate. First off, your Pug is too young to mate to begin with. You need to wait until your dog is at least a year and a half, and a true breeder will only breed one the dam and sire are titled in at least one area such as confirmation, obedience, therapy, service or nose work. Second off, if your dog is abnormally small, then you should be taking your dog to your vet for a full work up. Brain damage can cause slow maturing, and in Pugs it is a common illness. Please advise your daughter to seek the advice of a vet and of a seasoned breeder. He/She will be able to help your daughter if she truly wants to become a real breeder, and a vet visit will help you determine the health of your dog.

First off, no you should not be breeding your dog. She is too young first off and second, if she is so small compared to other Pugs, she needs to go in to see a vet. She may have a maturing problem, but either way, do not risk your dogs life. Contact a local reputable, responsible, qualified and seasoned breeder of Pugs in your area to get your daughter to study under for a while. He/She will be able to educate your daughter in high-quality breeding practices so that she can help better the Pug breed.

First off, I'm sorry for your loss. Losing a beloved pet is very, very hard. Even worse when they are so young. Unfortunately, the answer is 'it's possible'. Breeding is a very real life-threatening thing, especially when the dog such as the Pug breed has complications already. However, it is up to your vet to say what could have caused her infection.

Why is my Pug puppy's butt red I noticed when my Pug poops I see this red thing around her butt (bleh!). I had her anal glands cleaned last Tuesday and vet didn't say anything was wrong. But what is it? It goes away after she finishes pooping (is it really her anal gland and isn't it bad if you can see it)

What you are seeing is the inside of your dogs rectum. It can happen when a dog pushes too hard to poop. Be careful, because if your dog pushes too hard, she could get a prolapsed rectum. Which means that a part of her rectum will be pushed out of her body and she'll have to go to the vet as that is very, very serious. Consider talking to your vet about adding water or soft food to your dogs food to add more moisture to her stool so she doesn't have to push as hard.

Pug Sneezing? insurance? opinions So I noticed in the last couple of days that whenever my pug puppy and I play,, her nose starts to leak and all of a sudden she'll sneeze and mucus will come out of one of her nostrils. Considering I've made myself paranoid by reading all possible health problems with pugs, I freaked and took her to the vet. Vet looked at her and said it's just because her nose openings are so tiny right now (she didn't have a fever or runny eyes). So not to worry and as she grows older her nostrils should enlarge and be easier for her to breathe. So just to get some opinions, anyone else have/had a pug puppy or adult whose nose leaks during play time? And also: insurance. Does anyone else have pet insurance? I know the general exam for her nose basically makes any insurance coverage for her nose and illnesses related to her nose ineffective. But if she ever gets hip displays and needs treatment done then the insurance should reimburse me hopefully. What's the best insurance?

The first thing to do is to trust your vet. If you don't trust your vet, then I would get a second opinion from another vet. Your pup's runny nose is a normal thing that can happen to some Pug puppies. Continue to monitor it and as long as the mucus is not yellow or red, then your pup should be fine. I could also shorten your play time and up the frequency of play. Such as instead of playing with her for an hour day, play with her for 30 minutes twice a day, or 20 minutes three times a day.

I would highly suggest insurance for your puppy. It can save you a lot of money in emergency vet bills and is a great back-up you can fall upon when a big ticket item is suggest from your vet. There is no 'one's better then the other' pet insurance in my eyes. They are all good, it all depends on the level of coverage that you want/need and how much you can afford. Shop around and contact your vet, as not all vets take all pet insurances. Make sure the one you buy is taken by your vet so you don't get stuck.

recently adopted pug puppy She's two months old and up to date on her puppy shots. When I took her to the vet he said she was healthy; great sounding heart and lungs, healthy coat with no fleas or mites. What I'm worried about is on the drive home she started sneezing and when she takes a nap after playing she coughs and sounds like she's wheezing. The vet said that's common and to just watch out for yellow mucus from her nose. My question is am I overstressing myself worrying? If its common then should I just follow the vet's advice to just watch for the yellow mucus? Has any other pug puppy owner experienced where their pug sneezed or coughed/wheezed when they slept?

First off, trust your vet. If you do not trust your vet, then get another vet. Secondly, do you snore when you sleep? Yes? So is your puppy. Because of the facial structure of the Pug's face, they tend to wheeze, cough, sneeze, snore and snort in their sleep and during/after exercise. They can not help it. It is a natural thing or the dog to do. But as your vet said, if there is yellow mucus coming from her nose, or she looks like she is in distress, then contact your vet a.s.a.p. But other then that, cherish this time with your puppy, they grow up fast!

generally the mateing time is on days 9-11-13 counting the first day of her heat as day1-breed 1x a day only -skip a day-then breed again untill shes no longer receptive-the only way to get a sure answer is to do a progesterone testing series starting on day 6-and every other day to determine her fertile cycle-as to what day she will ovulate on-we found out that our girl ovulates early and without progesterone testing we would have never known-we missed a few heats not knowing and finally resorted to doing progesterone testing-have the parents been tested for PDE and cleared?google it -its now being done on pugs to prevent the spred of this genetic devistateing disease-both male and female should be tested-you shouldnt breed 2 carriers as the puppies will be affected and this PDE will kill them-this is something new that just came out in the past few years -pug breeders should test before breeding

Pimple-like dry skin. Our three year old girl suddenly developed some pimple-like spots/rashes. They seem to dry up pretty quickly as we could not find soft ones. We live in Malaysia with an equatorial climate - hot and humid most of the time. Ventilation is good during the day and she sleeps with us in an air-conditioned room every night.

They do not tolerate heat well, breathing issues, and eye problems are a few of the more common health issues with Pugs. Be especially mindful if there's a cat in the house that isn't declawed because a Pug's protruding eyes are vulnerable to injury.

Yes, you should clean a pug's wrinkles. Because bacteria can collect on their food and water, and tgat alot of times it gets stuck in the folds, you should always check at leadt once or twice every couple of weeks, ir how muxh you feel is necessary. If you see any swelling, pus, or anything serious, then I suggest calling your vet.

usually i wait until the 2nd heat cycle before breeding-you want to make sure that shes health tested first -PDE testing is almost mandatory -it is a devestating killing disease pertaining to the pug breed -if you breed 2 carriers your puppies will be affected and can die -so both parents need to be tested before breeding
