The Pug is well described by the phrase "multum in parvo," which means "a lot of dog in a small space." They are recognized for their even tempers, playful personalities, and outgoing, loving dispositions.
This square and cobby breed comes in fawn, silver fawn, apricot fawn, or black, with a well-defined "mask" on his muzzle.
The Pug is one of the oldest breeds of dogs and has flourished since before 400 B.C.
Pugs are comfortable in small apartments because they need minimal exercise, but the breed can adapt easily to all situations.
A popular companion dog, the Pug also excels in the show ring. See More Galleries
