The pug originated around 400BC in either China or Tibet. In Tibet it was a common companion to monks. Once having spread to Europe in the middle ages, it became a companion for royalty.
Positives
Pugs have a personality all their own. They "grunt" at their owners in their own little language, and are a delightful dog to have as a family member.
Negatives
Pugs need to be watched around larger dogs. As they will approach larger dogs, they are vulnerable to attack if such dogs are aggressive. Additionally this breed has known health conditions that have arisen as a result of selective breeding designed to produce a desired appearance. The flat, wrinkled face has produced a cute look on the outside. However on the inside this has resulted in compromising the design of the airway, making it a more labored process for this dog to breed than dogs not so designed. Additionally selective breeding has resulting in brithing issues, meaning it is very common for Pugs to require assistance with birthing, with many litters being born via ceasarian section.
