About PUGS

Pugs are one of the oldest dog breeds, apparently having originated in Asia sometime before 400BC.  They make a wonderful watchdog, alerting owners to strangers and yet they are not aggressive. The pug is a friendly animal who loves the company of children and others. He will be slightly jealous if he is ignored.

The Pug is characteristically short and stocky with its most distinctive feature being its head. They have large, dark eyes, flat little noses and wrinkly squishy faces. They are available in a range of colours from fawn to apricot, silver to black. Their muzzle always remains black. The pug is about 12-14 inches in height and can weigh about 20 pounds. They can easily gain weight if not encouraged to exercise as they are lazy dogs! They can live up to 15 years.

About KING CHARLES SPANIELS

The King Charles is a breed of small dog in the toy spaniel category. This type of dog has a silky and often slightly wavy coat. This breed also comes in a variety of colours - black and tan, solid red, tricolour, red and white. This type of dog has a silky and often slightly wavy coat.
The breed apparently came from the Renaissance-era in Great Britain and was a companion dog for royalty. In Tudor times, toy spaniels were know as ladies pets. Under the Struarts they were given the title of King Charles Spaniels and King Charles often had a few at his heels. He even wrote a decree in the house of Parliament  where animals were generally not allowed, that the King Charles should be accepted in any public place. This decree is still in existence today. As time went by, the King Charles went out of fashion and they were replaced by the Pug.

About POINTERS

The Pointer is generally an athletic and graceful animal. The distinguishing features of this breed are the head, feet, and tail. The pointer comes in liver, lemon, orange or black. Going back in time, Pointers were originally bred to work with hunters. They were used in the past along with retrievers to locate game for the hunter such as hares. Then the greyhound would chase them. Pointers are very mild-tempered and are happy living indoors with a family. They have a very low to non-existent aggression level and they very happily will co-exist with other dogs in the house. They are very good with children although their frame and bark might scare the little ones of the house or strange children.
