Pug Temperament

Pugs have a keen, happy-go-lucky attitude. Animated, peppy and spirited, they are loyal, loving and affectionate with their family. Playful, lively and rambunctious, they are sure to keep you laughing. Highly intelligent, it bores easily without variety in its training. These dogs can be a bit willful if they sense they are stronger minded than humans around them. Pugs are sensitive to the tone of your voice, so harsh punishment is unnecessary. They need an owner who is calm, yet firm, and consistent with the rules.

Pug Health Issues

Brachycephalic Airway Syndrome: A medical term that relates to multiple upper airway problems experienced in short-nosed, flat-faced breeds. These issues are due to the physical characteristics of these breeds, such as narrowed nostrils, an abnormally small windpipe or an overly long, soft palate.

Hip Dysplasia: A common disease where a malformation in the hip joint results in the joint rubbing and grinding. This can lead to irritation, pain and impaired walking ability. 

Patella Luxation: An abnormally shallow groove in the knee, which causes the knee cap (patella) to slip out of position.
