A Pug needs a medium PlexiDor dog door

The Pug is one of the oldest known dog breeds and has flourished since at least 400 BC. The earliest mentions of the Pug come from China, where the sturdy and cheerful little dogs were pets of the Buddhist monasteries in Tibet. A Pug generally weighs between 14 and 18 lbs, and needs a Medium PlexiDor dog door.

This is a lot of dog in a small package. Pugs are even-tempered, loving, charming, and often filled with mischief. They are curious and love to explore, but don’t need excessive amounts of exercise and can thrive almost anywhere – as long as they’re close to the family. The Pug’s family is its reason for living.

Pugs are generally happy. They’re happy living in the country or in the city, amongst children or with the elderly, and amongst other pets or as an only dog. They can be as happy in a little apartment as in a mansion, as long as they’re loved.

The dogs shed a little, but the short coat doesn’t need a lot of grooming. However, the wrinkles on the forehead and face must be kept clean and dry. Like all breeds with short snouts Pugs overheat quickly, so if you live in a hot climate or experience hot summer days you need to make sure the dog doesn’t get a heatstroke.

The PlexiDor Medium is the right size dog door for Pugs.
