7 Pros and Cons to Sharing Your Life With a Pug

Pugs have often been described as a whole lot of dog wrapped in a little package. The breed’s name comes from the Latin ‘Pugnum’ or ‘Pugno’ meaning ‘fist’ or ‘fight’. The name has nothing to do with the dog’s disposition, it refers to the Pug’s scrunched up face which resembles a fist.

These smart, compact dogs are in the American Kennel Club's Toy Group, and are known as having a fun sense of humor, a need to show off and a keen devotion to their master. 

1. Adapts well to apartments & small homes. A great indoor pet for older, less active adults. Can be good watchdogs but they won’t yap endlessly like some of the toy breeds.
