Pug General Appearance:

The Pug is a compact, square-proportioned dog with an average height of 10-11 inches tall at the shoulders, and an ideal weight around 14-18 pounds. Many pugs get overfed, and can weigh up to 30 pounds. Pugs are known for their round head as well as their flat, wrinkled face with a broad muzzle. A Pug’s muzzle is blunt and square and their bite is undershot. Pugs have large, center set eyes which sit prominently on the face and give them a soft, endearing expression. Their small, velvety ears are usually black and fall to their eye level.

Pugs have compact bodies, with a strong neck, and thick legs, and a curled tail, which can give the Pug the look of a big dog in a small dog’s body. The Pug’s coat is short, smooth, and glossy no matter the coloration. The black Pug is seen most often, but color can range from black to fawn, or sometimes silver. If fawn or silver, the Pug should always have a black mask and areas of black markings down the back.

The Pug’s coat is short, soft, smooth and glossy; coloring is black, apricot-fawn, or silver, with black mask and traces of black down the back.

Pug Temperament:

Pugs are an intelligent, even-tempered, and steady breed, but when they sense that it’s time to play they are charming, mischievous, and silly. Their energy level ranges from very active to the least active of dogs, so keep in mind that a “typical” Pug’s energy can be anywhere in that range.

Pug Fun Fact:

The Pug has a rich history! Pugs are one of the oldest dog breeds and have been around since before 400 B.C. The Pug was officially recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1885, and the first meeting of the AKC was in 1884.
