    What is the Average weight for a Chinese Pug?

    I have a 2 year old female Chinese Pug and I was wondering what is the average weight for her? Also, she just don't eat a whole bunch I always leave food down for her. When she went to the vet in Jan. '07 she weighed 8 lbs is that average?

    Re: What is the Average weight for a Chinese Pug?

    I've never heard of a "Chinese" Pug, are they any different from a Pug?

    I'm assuming that they are just another fancy name for a Pug, in which case the average weight for a Pug from the AKC standard is 14-18 lbs.

    Everybody's got a laughin' place; trouble is most folks won't take the time to go find it.

    Your pug is very small. The standard is 14-18 lbs, but I have a boy that is 3 and 22lbs and NOT overwieght.

    If you can post pics for us to see we can tell you if she's underweight, or just smaller than average. Pics should be from at ground level from the side and front and from above so we can see the outline of her body.

    She looks healthy, but not like a purebred pug. I've never seen one with a rough or wired coat. Where did you get her? She's Adorable!!!

    Thanks. I bought her from a woman in Marietta, GA. I had been searching for a dog for about a month 2 years ago and found an ad in the Atlanta newspaper.

    She is cute! But that is a pug mix. I saw your other thread about a grooming kit for cutting a pug's hair and I thought: a pug's hair should already be short! Guess this explains that!

    hi hon,
    pugs are approx 14 - 18 lbs
    They are smooth coated. The one you show in the pic looks to be part terrier. From the sound of it, the breeder took advantage of you. how much did you pay for it, if you dont mind me asking

    I paid $395.00 when I first got her I was told by the seller she is a Shih-Poo. My neighbor has a Shih-Poo so I knew that Sheridan was not that. I also know she has no poodle in her. My mom has a toy poodle. I would like to know what type Sheridan is out of curosity. I love her (naturally) no matter what type of breed she is.

    She is a gorgeous dog, that is for sure. She looks to me to be part wire terrier. Absolutely adorable. I just wish people would stop designing these poor things. Im sure that she will be spoiled rotten by you though. She looks like she already is.

    I do spoil her but I think Sheridan's 'Daddy' is the world's worst to spoil her rotten.

    She looks like a cross between a pug and Shih Tzu. Both have the short face and it would explain the coat and the weight. Here's a site that shows what they look like. Please forgive the "designer" name.
