Pugs are easily susceptible to cold; hot and cold weather conditions repulse them. They are prone to allergies, and the short muzzle contributes to chronic breathing constraints, thereby making the Pug wheeze and snore at regular intervals. (Pugs suffer from poor ventilation.) Furthermore, pugs are afflicted with skin problems, mast cell tumors, Pug Dog Encephalitis (PDE), an inflammation of the brain that affects adolescent Pugs usually between the ages of 2 and 3

Living Condition:

The Pug is ordinarily well-suited to an apartment life. It stays idle and lackadaisical indoors, and a yard is not essential for them. A Pug usually fails to stand up to hot or cold weather in most of the scenarios, and should be kept indoors at a reasonable temperature


Pugs are brawny dogs with short, straight legs. They need to be taken on daily walks. While out on the walk the dog must be made to heel beside or behind the person leading the way forward,(this is essential as loyalty towards humans makes dogs set great store by them).Vigorous games keep them in good shape and regular exercise positively moulds their health. However, a surfeit of physical activities can backfire on their health, as they can then show symptoms of wheezing.


The smooth, shorthaired coat is easy to groom. Brush and comb with a firm bristle brush and shampoo only when necessary. Dry thoroughly after a bath so the dog does not get chilled. The creases on the face must be cleaned regularly. This breed is a seasonally heavy shedder


                        Pugs set a precedent as family pets because they get along well with other animals, like cats, other dogs, and even small children. Pugs are light-hearted and frolicsome. With their meaningful faces and snorty ways, they’re guaranteed to make you smile. If not, you probably need to pay a visit to a therapist.


                         Pugs tend to shed to an appreciable extent. Because of this nature of theirs, people unable to stand the sight are ill-advised to keep a pug as a pet. Dog hair and pugs go hand in hand. Pugs are voracious eaters. Hence, if a person is not too fond of bug-eyed manipulation, he/she should cast aside the decision of having a pug.
