What are pugs really like

black pugPugs are as cute as they look. In fact as far as looks go, dogs don’t come much cuter than the Pug. The Pug is a loveable, affectionate, playful little dog who simply loves the company of people. Few dogs that can match the Pug as a companion dog, which perhaps explains why, with an ageing UK population, their popularity is on the increase.

Pugs are sociable little dogs. They are excellent with other animals and children but also sensitive so they should never be treated harshly or shouted at.

Their somewhat stern appearance belies their true cheerful personality. They are not a dog best suited to a noisy environment.

While they may have the reputation for being a little wilful, they are not a disobedient dog – it’s simply their aristocratic upbringing. The Pug is an intelligent breed, and properly and correctly taught right from wrong they will happily fit in with their owner’s needs.

While they are a tough little dog which enjoys a rough and tumble as much as any dog, the Pug’s prominent eyes make them highly susceptible to injury. So while they love to play, care must be not to cause inury to their eyes.

The Pug makes an excellent companion dog. Like any dog they will bark when necessary, but they will not continue to bark without good reason. And having alerted their owner to the presence of a stranger or an unusual noise, any such stranger is ensured a friendly welcome.

In summary, there are few more ideal companion dogs than the Pug. The Pug is particularly suited to the quieter, older owner, although likely to be just as happy with a family mindful of the Pug’s more gentile side. They love people and crave nothing more from their owner than their companionship. They are definitely not a dog to be left outside. They need the company of people.
