Lots of personality in a little body—that’s exactly what Pugs bring to the table. Hailing from China and popularized by European royalty, the modern Pug is a stocky, docile companion who just plain loves people.
Great for Small Homes
Pugs are borderline lazy dogs, and their classification in the toy group of breeds means they adapt well to apartment life.
There’s just something about that smooshed face and goofy grin that makes Pugs absolutely adorable and endearing.
Pugs are sometimes called the clowns of the dog world. These pups love to show off and play with their owners.
Great for Kids
Pugs adore kids, and unlike other small breeds, their sturdy bodies mean they won’t get hurt as easily by rough play.
Ready for Adventure
These stocky, portable pups might be a bit lazy, but they’re always ready to tag along on your next big adventure as your constant shadow.
Pugs are adaptable and forgiving dogs. Although they can be a bit stubborn with training, they’re always eager to please.

Questions & Answers
Pug prices are influenced by several different factors. These can include the color of the puppy (some coat colors are more rare than others), the breeder’s experience, location, and more. When you search for a Pug pup in the Uptown Network, you’ll have so many choices that shopping around for the best Pug puppies price is a breeze.
Absolutely! Pugs aren’t just small—they’re lazy, too! We say that as a compliment, though—one of the most endearing things about Pugs is that they’re equally ready to show off and take naps, making them a great choice for folks with small homes or limited time to exercise their pooch. Just remember that Pugs are prone to weight gain, so they need some exercise!
A generation ago, you were pretty limited when looking for a dog. If there wasn’t a breeder nearby, you’d have to pick a different breed. Luckily, the companies and breeders in the Uptown Network have extensive experience arranging travel for their dogs to major airports around the US, making your search a whole lot easier.
Screening breeders is necessary in this day and age where anyone can become an internet superstar with the right advertising. Part of our vetting process includes our extensive Breeder Pledge, which covers all areas of dog breeding expertise and animal care. Our Pledge is so tough that less than 10% of our breeder applicants are approved!
Finding a breeder online really boils down to how well the breeder does digital marketing. You’re not necessarily finding the best breeders, which is where we come in. Uptown Puppies independently reviews and vets potential breeders and businesses, meaning all companies with the Uptown Seal of Approval are REAL winners and true dog lovers.
Puppy mills have really been getting out of control lately, especially since the dog breeding industry is poorly regulated. The sad truth is that Pug dogs for sale from mills are far more likely to suffer from health or behavioral issues, many of which can cost owners a small fortune in additional vet bills. Adopt a Pug elsewhere and avoid the risk!
Pug mix puppies and designer breeds like the Daugle and Pom-A-Pug are all the rage these days, and provide even more variety when choosing your ideal Pug pup. While most Pugs come in one of several colors—several varieties of fawn and solid black Pug puppies—puppy Pug mixes can come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and even temperaments.
Pugs are a toy breed that originated in China, and were brought to Europe hundreds of years ago. The breed was popularized by the Dutch royal family, and recently began to explode in popularity. The breed’s amiable and loving nature is one of the biggest reasons that Pugs are one of the most popular breeds today. Grab a Pug dog for sale and you won’t regret it!
