Dogs of This "Toy" Breed Have Big Personalities and Are Good with Children
November 15, 2014
According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), “The Pug is well described by the phrase ‘multum in parvo’ which means ‘a lot of dog in a small space.’"
Pugs have a number of other names, the strangest of which is “Mops.” The breed originated in China, and is thought to have contributed genes to the English Bulldog, the Pekingese, and the King Charles Spaniel.
Pugs belong to the toy breed group, and enjoy the distinction of being the biggest “toy” in the category.
Unfortunately, due to the construction of their heads and faces, Pugs are susceptible to a variety of eye problems and breathing difficulties. They also often have difficulty regulating their body temperature.
The collective noun for a pack of Pugs is, of all things, a “grumble.”
