pug parents

Pugs are one of the most lovable of all lapdog breeds. With a signature appearance of wrinkles faces, short snouts and small, husky bodies, pugs have a well-earned reputation as being adorable dogs with big personalities! With pedigree origins dating back to China, pugs were bred to house the palaces of Chinese royalty. Since pugs do have flat-faces, breathing can be compromised by elevated heat or strenuous activity so be sure to keep your pug in an environment that is air conditioned.
