Pug Breed Profile
The Pug has been referred to as Multo in Parvo meaning "a lot of dog in a small space." This breed is an even-tempered breed who is playful, outgoing, dignified, and possesses great charm.
In terms of appearance, symmetry and general appearance are decidedly square and cobby. A lean, leggy Pug and a dog with short legs and a long body are equally objectionable.
The colors are silver, apricot-fawn, or black. The silver or apricot-fawn colors should be decided so as to make the contrast complete between the color and the trace and the mask.
The coat is fine, smooth, soft, short and glossy, neither hard nor woolly.
This is an even-tempered breed, exhibiting stability, playfulness, great charm, dignity, and an outgoing, loving disposition.
The Pug may require more frequent walking or other exercise than other toy dog breeds. Despite their short hair, Pugs need brushing at least twice a week due to shedding.
