Your Very Own Pug Puppy

Wouldn't it be great to own your very own pug puppy one day? Having it look up at you with its big puppy dog eyes and its cute black, scrunchy nose. Before you decide to go out and buy your pup, there are a few things you need to know first.

Facial Structure

When choosing a pug puppy you have to look for certain features in their faces. The first feature you need to look at is they're ears. They have to be small but not too small. If they are too small you can usually tell as their ears generally not suit their face. If they are too big then this is also a bad thing. Same with this you can usually tell just by looking at them. The second facial feature you need to look at when buying a pug puppy is their nose. The nose you will be looking for can't be pushed into the pup's face too much as this will result in certain breathing complications later on down the track. This usually reduces a pugs lifespan by 2-3 years in most cases. The last thing you need to look at is the amount of wrinkles on their face. In the case of show dogs, more is better, however the more wrinkles on a pugs face again usually promotes breathing complications in the future.

Personality Of Each Pug Puppy

This is perhaps the biggest area needed to be discussed when it comes to buying the right pug puppy. What makes a good personality for each individual case. Firstly if you are planning on showing your pug, you are best off looking for a puppy that is not to outrageous as this will mean he/she will be harder to train for the ring. Judges are looking for well behaved pugs that respond to human commands at will. A pug with a naturally outgoing personality will not be able to control itself in the ring. You are better off choosing a pup that is more willing to listen to you. For example when you ask it to come, it comes. Simple as that.

If however, you are not planning on showing your dog in the ring and you would like like to have a pug that is friendly and outgoing, then I would suggest looking for the puppies that are always full of energy. They may not listen to your every command, but I assure you they will be a lot of fun to play with. I would probably recommend this type of pug puppy for a family with younger children. They will have a great time growing up together playing in the backyard.
