Dog Breed:   PUG

View Pug Sculpture

"Multum in Parvo" - a lot of dog in a small space, is a very apt description for the Pug. One of the oldest breeds, this endearing little dog has its origins in the Orient although just when and how it came into existence is shrouded in mystery.

This breed, as it was first shown in 1861, was always fawn in color; a cross-breeding with some black Pugs imported from China in 1877 introduced the darker shades into the breed. The Pug has not changed very much from the first standard, which was written in the early 1880s.

The exact origin of the Pug is unknown but and object of speculation. One theory suggests that the breed dates back to Egyptian times. Yet, another suggests that it came about as the result from cross-breedings of small bulldogs.  However, the most likely theory is that the Pug is a larger, smooth-coated cousin to the Oriental Pekinese. Since the time of William the Orange in the late 1600s, the Pug has been a popular royal companion and fanciers suggest the name comes from the Olde English word "pugg" which meant "someone dearly loved."

By the 1800s, the breed was especially popular with women, as they were easily carried and made wonderful companions. Many Victorian pottery and porcelain likenesses of the Pug come to us from this time.

Height: 10 - 11" (25.4 - 27.9cm)

Weight: 14 - 18 lbs (6.2 - 8 kg)

Coat Type: The short coat is sleek, smooth and soft to the touch. Colors are silver or apricot-fawn with black markings on the face. The tail is often of the "screw" type and very active when the little Pug is happy.

Temperament: The Pug is an endearing friend who enjoys human companionship. He is eager to please and is easily trained. This dog does well as a town or country pet. He does not need very much exercise, unless he starts to become obese.

Special Interest: An alert little Pug saved the life of Prince William of Orange. The dog's insistent barking woke the sleeping Prince and warned of the approach of invading Spaniards. The Pug was recognized as the court's official dog and the Prince's tomb bears an engraving of William and his beloved pet.
