5 Reason Pugs Are The Best Dogs To Own

1) Pugs Are One of A Kind


The Pug is considered an Oriental breed with ancestral ties to the Pekingese and perhaps the Shih Tzu. Centuries ago in the monasteries of Tibet, tiny yet sturdy dogs with large eyes and wrinkled, expressive faces were bred and kept as companion dogs. These were the earliest examples of the Pug dog breed. With a history predating 400 B.C., the modern Pug remains a good companion dog. From Tibet, the breed was introduced to Japan, then Europe, where it became a favorite in many royal courts.

2) Pug make excellent apartment dogs

 

Absolutely! Pugs are small indoor dogs that don’t require a lot of room to run inside or outside, making them ideal for apartment dwellers.

3) Pugs Are Great With Children

 

A thousand times yes! Pugs are among the most gentle and passive breeds of all. They will tolerate the prodding of a child, are not known to nip or bite and are quite protective of the family and home.

4) Pugs love attention

 

Pugs are people dogs. They like, and some say need to be around people in order for them to be truly happy. They don’t bark or jump up and down on you however, so a Pugs need of people basically shows itself in where you’ll find your Pug…At your feet, on your lap or quietly following you around. It’s one of their greatest charms! They are truly a persons best friend!

5) Pugs Aren't Particularly Expensive 

 

This depends on several factors. First, the price of a Pug pup varies greatly based on geographic location. Second, the quality of the Pug. A show quality Pug pup in the New York metropolitan area can cost upwards of $1500 from a well known and highly regarded breeder. While a pet quality Pug pup from a reputable breeder can cost $800 in the same area. In another state, the range can drop dramatically, depending on the availability, popularity and quality of breeder involved. The price of a Pug pup can range anywhere from $250-$2,000 depending on the three major factors listed at the top of this answer.

I have a Pug and all that I can say is that if he should pass before I do they better dig 2 holes. I couldn’t make it without him.
