Pugs

Did you know that pugs originated in China, and they date back to 400 B. C. E? Some think they date back to 1000 B.C.E., but thats not true. Pugs are great companions, and there were like treasure to the Chinese. Some people in China thought that the pugs were destroyed by Emperor Ch'in Shih Huang, but thats not true either.

In 732 C.E. China gave Japan 1 pug. In the 16th century China gave pugs to the whole world. Also some pugs saved William the silent, and other men from the Spanish people. The Spanish people were going to attack and kill the men in their sleep, but the pugs are sort of good watchdogs and they woke them up so they didn’t get killed. Now at the bottom of William the silents grave there is a pugs carved there.

The first time all lot of people knew about the pug was in the 1800’s.The Pug Dog Club of America (PDCA) was made in 1931. An average pug can have a litter of about 2-6 puppies, they can live to be 12-15 years old. They do a lot of active things, but they're very intelligent, even though they may not look like it. There fur is fine, smooth, short, and glossy. They can be silver, apricot, fawn or black.
