Pug buddies discussing possible Pug names

We here at this website have been fortunate enough to have had more than a few encounters with this breed and were left with nothing but favorable impressions. Not only did we find them to be an affectionate dog, but also one that left us laughing on more than one occasion at their antics.

We’re sure that you’ve already noticed many of the same characteristics in your Pug and need us to go no further with our own impressions, yet there are a few facts about this breed that you might find interesting.

Did You Know…

*That the truest form of this breed began to arise in the 16th century in China? They arrived in other parts of the world thru sailors from the Dutch India Trading Co. that took this breed with them on their worldly voyages.

*It’s believed that at some point in their evolution they mixed with other small, compact dogs, such as the English Bulldog. Even Pugs get lonely for canine companionship on their long salty trips if you know what we mean.

*They tend to have minds of their own when it comes to training beyond the basics, as they might exhibit an occasional stubborn streak.

*They tend to overheat, as their spunkiness at times tends to be greater than their common sense. Hmmm, do Pugs have common sense? Were not sure, but we do know they have spunkiness!
