A little about the Pug


The Pug is one of the biggest personalities in the dog world. Small and compact, they are lively dogs, packed full of fun, who thrive on human companionship. They have a stubborn streak but are generally eager to please and love going on adventures with their humans. 




Despite being such a fun-loving dog, the Pug is predisposed to many diseases. These include: Pug Dog Encephalitis, Brachycephalic Airway Syndrome (including stenotic nares, elongated soft palate, and hypoplastic trachea), Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca, Patellar Luxation, Entropian, Legg-Perthes, skin fold dermatitis, Canine Hip Dysplasia, Seizures, Nerve Degeneration, Hemivertebra, Intervertebral Disc Disease, Demodicosis, and allergies.
