Puppies are a bundle of joy. More so when it’s a Pug puppy! These cuddly creatures love to be loved and crave for human attention. A short muzzled face, curled tail, deep chest and little snorting sounds make Pugs distinct from other purebreds.
Pug Puppies: How to Choose One
The popularity of Pugs grew manifold with Queen Victoria’s patronage of this breed. In the nineteenth century, Pugs became an integral part of famous dog shows in England.
When choosing Pug puppies, consider the following:
* Don’t judge a Pug by its stern face. They have a cheerful and friendly temperament and love children. They love to play and get excited easily.
* Pugs are very gentle and extremely sensitive to the tone of your voice.
* If you wish to keep your pet indoors most of the time, then a Pug is ideal for you.
* Pugs are great watchdogs and completely dutiful to their master.
* This cute breed is very friendly with other breeds and pets. However, they demand the full attention of their masters. In the absence of this, they will nurture feelings of jealousy and sulk in a corner.
* The height and weight of Pugs usually ranges between 10 to 14 inches and 14 to 18 pounds, respectively.
* Pugs are prone to respiratory problems due to their short muzzle. Knee problems and weak eyesight are common in this breed as well. Pugs feel uncomfortable under extreme weather conditions. Lack of physical activity can easily make them obese.
When considering a Pug puppy, look at the following:
* See how the puppy responds to your kids. While there may be no instant bonding, Pug puppies will usually be happy to see children.
* Ensure that the Pug puppy has a neat and glossy coat. Its bright round eyes should be fairly far apart and ears twisted.
* Pugs are usually silver, fawn and apricot in color. However, black Pugs are also bred by some breeders.
