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.

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!

Pugs and cats get along fine. There should be no worries depending on how territorial the pug is.

My pug puppy is 6 weeks old and his tail is not curly do you think it will become curly? He is a mix but I love him just like he is. I just wondered if their tails curl up later or if they are normally born curly.

as long aS THERE IS PENETRATION THEY DONT NEED A SO CALLED "tie" IN ORDER FOR HER TO GET PREGNANT-YOU MIGHT WANT TO TAKE HER TO THE VET TO GET A VAGINAL EXAM TO MAKE SURE THAT SHE DOESNT HAVE A STRICTURE PREVENTING HIM FROM GETTING IN-THIS WOULD BE SIMILAR TO A HUMAN FEMALES HYMEN-YOU ALSO NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY MATCH UP SIZE WISE THAT IF SHES TALLER THAN HE IS OR VISA VERSA THAT HE CAN REACH WHERE HE NEEDS TO GO-YOU MAy need to place either one on something to raise or lower them position wise-you can also try and hold him in place -generally its eaiser if you use 2 people as handlers-1 for each dog-if all else fails-theres always doing an AI at your vet

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
