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
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. Moreover
temperaments differ among yorkies and some may not
prefer children like the others. However, if handled
with care and a lot of love, yorkies are sure to
give you back the affection and be great companions.
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
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.
The breed is active but they should
never be overexercised since they can develop health
They should get regular exercise like walks with
owners. They are robust, enthusiastic, and playful
and should receive ample scope to play.
Pugs have large eyes and are prone
to eye infections. Hence, they should be cleaned
regularly. Moreover, they are an allergic breed
and they shed. Pugs should be brushed regularly.
Owners should use a firm-bristled brush while brushing
them and their nails should be clipped occasionally.
Their coat do not require much grooming. They should
be wiped with a damp cloth to avoid dirt and infections
from setting in. Shampooing them frequently should
be avoided because chemicals might harm their coat
