Ask any pug owner and they’ll no doubt have a comedic story to tell you about their pet. Pugs are spirited dogs who love to play but are generally calm and relaxed in their indoor environments. Because pugs are people pleasers, they jump on any opportunity to be the center of attention. Fans of the breed say these small dogs are incredibly intuitive to their owner’s needs and emotions and are innately curious, which adds to their charm.

1. Pugs are the largest dog in the toy group

For those looking for a small dog that isn’t too small, the pug is a perfect size. They’re easy to carry around, yet they’re big enough to join in on fun and games safely. This breed shares toy group membership with the Chihuahua, Pomeranian, Pekingese, and the Maltese, to name a few, but it’s the largest breed in the group. Pugs are typically between 10 and 13 inches tall and as an adult and weigh between 14 to 18 pounds. Their physique is dense and muscular. They reach adulthood and their full size when they’re around one year old.
