Most pug types have similar personalities but when split into characterizations, it is usually done so by splitting the genders. If an owner wants a pug that is more playful and dependent on the owner, then one should invest in a male pug. If you have a feeling that it will get annoying having the little dog following you around everywhere (and it most assuredly will do so in most cases), a female may be a better choice.
A male is more inclined to “hang out” with the owner while a female will be more independent and most of the time does whatever it wants. One thing is for sure about pugs though: each and every one has a high energy level and a desire to be playful much of the time. Most types of pugs, male or female enjoy going for walks and getting exercise in order to help keep their bodies slimmer and healthier.
An ideal pug weighs between 14 to 18 pounds and a normal pug is expected to live 12 to 15 years. In general, most types of pugs are small in size but have the reputation for being somewhat obese. Many people that get pugs fall in love with the bulging dark eyes and wrinkled face that also happen to come with added health concerns. Happy owners do not mind keeping care of their pugs though, because the return is so great. If someone is looking to get a dog that is the ultimate companion, has a very high energy level, and loves to play with just about anyone, a pug would be the perfect fit.
