About Pug

Country of Origin, History of the breed

This cute, sturdy breed of dog emerged in China around 400 BC. Pugs were kept as pets by Buddhist monks in China. However, later they made their way to Europe where they were kept by the European nobility as an integral part of European royal lifestyle.It was in 1550 that the pug was declared as the official dog of the House of Orange in Holland and saved the life of Prince Williams by warning him about the approach of Spanish soldiers.

During the Napoleonic Phase in France, Napoleons wife Josephine used her pug to secretly convey messages when she was imprisoned during the revolution.The pug was brought to England in 1860 and was registered by the AKC in 1885.

There are three different schools of thought regarding the origin of the dog. According to one group, this dog descended from the short haired pekingese. Others believe that they emerged as a result of a cross of the bulldog with another species. Yet another group go with the idea that they are a form of the French Mastiff.

Are they suited to homes with kids?

Pugs are usually fond of people and children. But owing to their size and the fragility of the structure, it is best for Pugs to be monitored when interacting with really young children.

However, if handled with care and a lot of love, yorkies are sure to give you back the affection and be great companions.

How to take care of the Pug Puppies?

Pug puppies require a lot of care. First and foremost these pups should be provided with a soft collar and comfortable crates,which should be soft and cozy. Moreover,these should always be easily cleanable since puppies are messy. Owners should never try to confine their puppies to the crates since they require adequate amount of exercise through out the day.

Basic hygiene like brushing them clipping nails, de-worming and vaccination should be administered from time to time. Healthy nutritional food should be fed. Puppies should never be overfed since they can become obese

If the pups have to be left all alone throughout the day, owners should select a comfortable spot within the house and place baby gates not only to prevent them from loitering around and getting hurt but also to provide them with a space of their own where they can play as well.

Pugs are alert and intelligent and can be easily trained. However, they lack patience and hence repetitive training techniques often bore them. Hence, owners should patiently deal with Pugs. Training techniques should be changed occasionally in order to make them disciplined. Obedience and potty training should be imparted from a very young age. They should be taught to heel, stay, go, sit etc. Pugs are friendly dogs and socialization might further enhance their ability to differentiate friendly and unfriendly behavior. They are unable to take harsh handling and should never be roughly handled.

Activity Level

The breed is active but they should never be overexercised since they can develop health problems.

They should get regular exercise like walks with owners. They are robust, enthusiastic, and playful and should receive ample scope to play.
