A Pug is a with a wrinkly face and medium-small body. Pug puppies are often called puglets. The word “pug” may have come from the pugg, which was an affectionate term for a playful little devil or monkey. While most Pugs appearing in eighteenth century prints tended to be long and lean, the current breed standards call for a square, cobby-body, a compact form, deep chest, and well-developed muscle. Their heads, carried on arched necks, should be substantial and round, the better to accentuate their large, bulging, dark eyes. The wrinkles on their foreheads should be distinct and deep,. The ears should be smooth and soft, like black velvet and come in two varieties: “rose” (small, round and folded with the front edge angled toward the mask, giving the head a more rotund shape) and “button” (level with the top of forehead and folded at a sharp ninety degree angle). Breeding preference goes to “button” Pugs. The lower teeth should protrude farther than their upper, meeting in an under-bite.

Their fine, glossy coats can be apricot , fawn , silver or black. A silver coat is characterized by a very light colored coat, absent of black guard hairs. Some unscrupulous breeders call “smutty” Pugs silver. A “smutty” Pug typically has a very dark head, with no clear delineation at the mask, and dark forelegs. The tail should curl tightly over the hip; a double curl is considered perfection.

Pugs of different coat types shed to varying degrees, but they all shed quite a bit year round. Fawn Pugs, which have both an undercoat and an overcoat, are the most notorious for shedding. Pug owners have gone to great lengths to control this Pug characteristic. Partial solutions to the problem involve using special shampoos, supplementing or changing the Pug’s diet, or even trimming the Pug’s coat. Alternatively, regular coat grooming can keep the shedding down.

The silver variety of a Pug is much less common in the United States with Black and Fawn being the dominant colors. A Pug with a hard or woolly coat are considered objectionable by the AKC and are viewed unfavorably in shows. There is supposed to be a clear trace or black line extending from the head of the Pug to the tail. Additionally, moles and birthmarks are accepted and are not viewed unfavorably.

The stern expression of the Pug belies its true sense of fun. Pugs are sociable dogs, and usually stubborn about certain things, but they are playful, charming, clever and are known to succeed in dog obedience skills. Pugs are sensitive to the tone of a human voice, so harsh punishment is generally unnecessary. While Pugs usually get along well with other dogs and pets, they generally prefer the company of humans and require a great deal of human attention; they may become slightly anxious or agitated if their owner ignores them or does not play with them; however some may happily occupy themselves when the owner is away. In general, they are very attentive dogs, always at their owner’s feet, in their lap, or following them from room to room (so be careful where you step).
