The pug is a breed of dog that has been known and loved by us humans for over 2000 years.
Known for its distinct features, such as a curled tail, its flat but wrinkly face and its big dark eyes, the pug has become one of the most popular dog breeds of all time. It's for no other reason than this that pugs have such great pun-potential, and this pug-packed list of puns about your favourite animal is the best way to showcase that.
Did You Know? The pug breed originated in China, around 2000 years ago, but the dogs were then regularly transported to Holland via trading ships. People absolutely love looking for 'silly pug pictures' and 'silly pugs videos' on the internet but don't be fooled, pugs are pretty clever. Pugs can even save human lives! In 1572, it was the sound of a pug named Pompey that kept Prince William from going near the Spanish soldiers, who were approaching to attack. Thereafter, the pug breed was linked to the House of Orange.
The average pug has a lifespan of between 12 and 15 years. Pugs are brachycephalic dogs, meaning their faces appear squashed in and, as a result, they're pretty big snorers. Both the male pug and the female pug may weigh between six and eight kilograms. Female pugs tend to be slightly taller than their male counterparts, with the female pug being 30cm on average, while the male pug may be 27cm on average.
The dogs are fairly laid-back but love attention, company and affection, making them sweet companions. Chinese emperors used to keep pugs as lapdogs, giving them treatment fit for royals too! Pugs aren't just cute companions for humans, the dogs tend to get along with cats too! If you're considering getting a pet pug, or maybe you've recently got a new pug and are considering a great pug name we think Basco, Bella, Charlie and Lola are great ideas. We also love Lucy, Otis and Pugsley!
