Pugs are some of the most controversial dogs when it comes to their breeding. However, with the right documentation breeders are allowed to produce pugs that are healthy, friendly and long-serving loyal companions. The best dog breeds are collected from different parts of the world and are crossbred, which is done by monitoring them health-wise, pedigree-wise and genetically. And that is what caught my attention about this lovely little breed…
Pug Expert is a site that is dedicated to helping out anyone who owns a pug or is planning to own one in the future. These types of dogs are not only affectionate and loyal, but also mischievous and playful when they want to be.
They are intelligent animals that can be trained, one of the main reasons why they are often adopted as therapy dogs. Besides their tough wrinkly look, they are actually very warm-hearted and love to establish a connection with their owner. Due to their nature, they offer emotional support but also love to receive as much attention as they give.
You will probably have noticed the high prices by which pugs are being sold, at least I, Kerry Smith, did when I adopted my first pug over 10 years ago!
But being some of the longest living dogs with lives of up to 15 years, you can be sure that when adopting a pug you are adopting a long-term companion.
The only potential downside to owning a pug is their potential health problems, some of which result from over breeding. The most serious one is Pug Dog Encephalitis (PDE), the cause of the disease is not yet known and it also lacks treatment. It is, therefore, a good idea to learn about other serious ailments before adopting the pug and get the necessary paperwork from the breeder.
As a long-term pug owner myself, my mission with Pug Expert is to provide you with a comprehensive guide on all things pug related and to provide you with tips on how to best look after them and their health.
