It is very important to keep you Pug at an adequate weight. Unless your vet advises otherwise, you should try and keep your dog in the weight-range typical for his or her breed and gender.
By analyzing thousands of data points, we created the real-life Pug weight distribution chart. For a typical female, the weight ranges from 6.1kg to 9.1kg and for a male from 7.6kg to 10kg. That is, 13.4 lbs to 20.7 lbs for females and 16.8 lbs to 22 lbs for males.
The chart presents the percentage of the population that falls in a specific range. For example, the Pug weight is such that approximately 25% of the male dogs have a weight between kg and 9kg (between 15.3lbs and 19.8lbs) and 20% of the female dogs have a weight between 6kg and 8kg (between 13.3lbs and 17.6lbs).
