The short answer is yes. Pugs have a dense short coat that’s considered low-maintenance, however, it does shed about the same amount as most dogs. Fortunately, the Pug is a small dog that’s generally easy to care for and if you adopt one with a light-colored coat, you’ll find that the shedding is less noticeable than with a dark-colored Pug puppy.
Pugs are sturdy dogs that often live up to the age of 12-15 years. Like most dogs their size, they are prone to health issues like hip dysplasia, and obesity.
