Apricot Pug: A Unique Coat Color

Silver Fawn Pugs Silver fawn pugs are known as the most beautiful coat color in the world. They have a silverish tinge to their coats and they vary from dark brown to black or even pure white. Their fur is very soft and silky, with long, flowing hair. They look like miniature snowmen! There are many different types of silver fawn pugs. Some are quite small, while others grow up to be medium-sized dogs. Silver fawn pugs come in all sizes ranging from tiny terriers to large huskies. They range in weight too, but the smallest ones weigh only around 5 pounds (2 kg). Silver fawn pugs are not just cute; they are extremely intelligent and loyal companions. These little guys love children and enjoy being petted and cuddled. They make excellent family pets because they are affectionate and loving. Silver fawn pugs are very social animals, so they do best when kept together in a household. However, they will happily live alone if necessary. Silver fawn pugs have been bred for years to produce offspring with the same coat color. This means that these pups tend to be more similar than different from each other. They are generally easy-going and love to please their owners. However, these dogs can be stubborn at times. Scolding is not an effective way to make them behave. Instead, use positive reinforcement. These pugs are also very sensitive, so they won’t respond well to loud shouting or anger. They do best in a calm household that keeps everything peaceful and organized.

The History Of The Pug

The pug is one of the oldest dog breeds in the world. There is evidence to suggest that pugs have been around for more than 2,000 years.

These dogs were prized by Chinese royalty in ancient times, and there are several famous paintings and statues of pugs dating back thousands of years. For many centuries, pugs were a symbol of wealth and status in China because only the rich could afford to keep them. During the Han Dynasty in 206 B.C., pugs were given as gifts to other royals as a sign of peace and friendship. It is also believed that pugs were brought to Holland around 400 A.D. by the invading Huns. By the 15th century, pugs started making their way to Europe where they eventually became popular among Dutch painters and Italian aristocrats. In the 1800’s, pugs became very popular in the UK and US. Queen Victoria owned several pugs, which contributed to their popularity. It is believed that her favorite pug was named “Imperator.” One of her pugs was even stuffed and is still on display at Windsor Castle today! The first pugs were brought to North America around 1832. During this time, pugs were used as catch dogs for wildlife such as otters and beavers. They were also used to hunt wild boar in Europe. During the 19th century, pugs became popular as circus dogs. Among the many tricks they were trained to do was jumping through rings of fire. It is unknown how many pugs died performing these dangerous acts. Thankfully, such cruelty is no longer allowed.

Pugs Today

Nowadays, pugs aren’t used for hunting or circus acts. These playful and gentle dogs make excellent pets for families with children.

They are also popular with elderly people. Pugs are fairly small, so they don’t take up too much room in the house. They don’t need a large yard to play in either. All pugs need is a little attention and they will be your best friend. Pugs are very intelligent and easy to train. It is believed that they were selectively bred for these traits. Owners of pugs in ancient times used to enter them in contests to see who had trained their dog the best. These contests were a lot like dog shows that we see today, except with more fighting. By the 19th century, pugs became popular in the US and were declared the national dog of France. During World War I, US soldiers brought pugs with them to Europe. These dogs were used by military police to help locate enemy mines and guard bases. The last known pug used by the military was General Patton’s pug, “Patton,” who was used during World War II. Pugs are still used as service animals to this day. Pugs are very friendly and like to stay by their owners’ side. This can sometimes get them into trouble, as they will insist on following their owners even if there is danger about. This has given them a reputation of being “yappy” or loud, but it’s just their nature to be protective. Pugs will bark when they sense that something is wrong or when they want attention. Despite this stereotype, pugs are actually quite calm dogs and rarely ever make noise.
