Description and characteristics of the Pug
The Pug is a small dog but with the appearance of molosse. Short on leg, his body is muscular and stocky. He is recognizable with his frowning and wrinkled face, especially on the forehead. Her large, globular eyes give the Pug a sweet, affectionate and preoccupied air that makes you fall in love with this little dog. It can be of several colors but its hair is always short, soft and smooth. The tail of the Pug looks like a little corkscrew.
Origin of the Pug
Originally from China, the Carlin has long been the favorite dog of good luck for mandarins and aristocracy. With the opening of the Silk Road to Europe, the Carlin arrived in England, Scotland, Germany, Italy and France from the 16th century. In the end, it was in England that the Carlin was recognized as a purebred dog breed.
Character and behavior of the Pug - Who is it for?
The Pug has the particularity of being very sociable. Obviously with his master he loves above all, but also with strangers. It is a very sweet dog, who enjoys being pampered, player and joker. He amuses the whole family with his snoring and purring. The Carlin adapts perfectly to the life of the family that he follows everywhere, in walk or in the house. He particularly appreciates the presence of children and since he does not need much exercise, he is also a very good pet for the elderly.
How to take care of your Pug: its needs
The Pug can live in an apartment, but it is necessary to be able to go out several times a day. On the other hand, it is a dog that fears heat and needs to be hydrated regularly in case of high temperatures. Because of its molosse origins, the Pug can be stubborn. His teachers must therefore educate him firmly from an early age so that this character trait does not take over.
The Pug does not need a particular diet. It can be industrial as homemade, from the moment it is balanced and well adapted to its age and weight. Its diet must be composed of 50 to 75% of meat. On the other hand, subject to overweight, it must be ensured that he does not eat more than his needs.
The health of the Pug
Pug's main health problem is related to his eyes, which are easily blushed and prone to inflammation. Their daily and thorough cleaning is therefore recommended. Pug is also susceptible to atopy (itching, nibbling, redness, ear infections, bad digestion) caused in response to the presence of eg fleas, mites, food proteins, pollen, etc. It can also be affected by intertrigo, a dermatological condition that is localized at the level of its folds.
