So, just what is a Miniature Bulldog?
Asien, rund 400 v. Chr.
The Pug is "a lot of dog in a small space". It is a stubby and muscular dog with a wide chest, straight, very strong front legs and well-muscled hind legs. It received its name Pug from the Latin word that means "clenched fist".
To communicate with humans Pugs make a grunting nasal noise, somewhat like a pig. Snuggled down at your feet snoring or being close to you, but unobtrusive, are some of its favorite activities. Some of the breed's talents include: watchdogging and performing tricks.
Silver, apricot, fawn or black, black mask and ears and black trace along back.
Fine, smooth, short and glossy. It is easy to groom. Brush and comb with a firm bristle brush and shampoo only when necessary. After bathing, dry it quickly and thoroughly to prevent chill. The creases on the face must be cleaned regularly. This breed is a seasonally heavy shedder.
The Pug catches cold easily and is stressed by hot and cold weather. This breed is prone to allergies, skin problems, and chronic breathing problems. The Pug is not the easiest whelper; expect Cesarean Section if breeding.
There is a chance of keratites (inflammation of the cornea) and ulcers on the cornea. The delicate eyes are prone to weeping. This dog tends to wheeze and snore, but on the whole is a very easy-care dog. It is important not to overfeed the Pug, as it eats more than is good for it, quickly becoming obese and living much shorter lives. To minimize the risk of your Pug developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a puppy from a reputable breeder.
