The Pug (Chinese: 巴哥犬 ; pinyin: Bā gē quǎn ) is a breed of dog with a wrinkly, short-muzzled face and curled tail. Pugs were brought from China to Europe in the 16 th century and were popularized in Western Europe by the House of Orange of the Netherlands, and the House of Stuart. In the United Kingdom, in the 19 th century, Queen Victoria developed a passion for Pugs which she passed on to other members of the Royal family.
Pugs are strong willed but rarely aggressive, and are suitable for families with children. The majority of the breed is very fond of children and sturdy enough to properly play with them. Depending on their owner’s mood, they can be quiet and docile but also vivacious and teasing. Pugs tend to be intuitive and sensitive to the moods of their owners and are usually eager to please them. Pugs tend to have a somewhat lazy nature and spend a lot of time napping.
Average. Pugs that live a mostly sedentary life can be prone to obesity, though this is avoidable with regular exercise and a healthy diet.
