Pugs, originating from China, are a small and distinct breed, known for their wrinkly, short-muzzled face and curled tail. They are available in four color types: fawn, black, apricot, and silver fawn. Compact yet sturdy, Pugs have a smooth, glossy coat that requires minimal grooming.Pugs are playful, yet somewhat lazy dogs, with an affectionate and sociable nature. Their charming personality and calm demeanor make them ideal pets for families with children. These companion dogs are intelligent, albeit a bit stubborn, which can be a playful challenge during training sessions. Despite their balanced appetite, Pug owners must be vigilant to prevent weight gain due to their lazy tendencies. Regular exercise and interaction are necessary to keep them physically and mentally active.
