Pug

Pug breeders in South AfricaPug

 

The pug is a toy dog with a wrinkly, short-muzzled face and curled tail. The breed has a fine, glossy coat that comes in a variety of colors and a compact square body with well-developed muscle. They have been described as multum in parvo ("much in little"), referring to the pug's personality and small size. Known in ancient China as lo-sze, pugs may have been responsible for the English Bulldog, the modern Pekingese and the King Charles spaniel. They have Chinese origins, but were popularized in Western Europe by the House of Orange of the Netherlands, and the House of Stuart of England, Ireland and Scotland. Pugs can suffer from a variety of health issues, including overheating, obesity and pharyngeal reflex. Two fatal conditions, necrotizing meningoencephalitis and hemivertebrae, are particular concerns for the breed. Care must be taken to clean the ears and the facial skin folds of these dogs. The breed is often summarized as multum in parvo ("much in little"), describing the pugs' remarkable personality despite their small size. While the pugs appearing in eighteenth century prints tended to be long and lean, modern breed preferences are for a square cobby body, a compact form, a deep chest, and well-developed muscle. Pugs have two distinct shapes for their ears, "rose" and "button". "Rose" ears are smaller than the standard style of "button" ears, and are folded with the front edge against the side of the head. Breeding preference goes to "button" style ears. Pugs' legs are very strong, straight, of moderate length, and are set well under. Their shoulders are moderately laid back. Their pasterns are strong, their feet are small, their toes are well split-up, and their nails are black. The lower teeth normally protrude further than their upper, meeting in an under-bite.
