Like all other pugs, they have an iconic appearance and charming personality.

Let's find out what sets them apart:

Retro Pugs exhibit a compact physique.

On average, they weigh 15 to 20 pounds and reach a height of 10 to 13 inches at the withers.

While they do shed, it's not as much as some other breeds, so they're a good choice for anyone with allergies or who doesn't want to deal with excessive shedding.

Personality Traits

They love attention and thrive on human interaction, known for being great with kids and other pets.

That being said, they do have a stubborn streak.

Pocket Pugs or Teacup Pugs, are a smaller version of the traditional pug breed.

Due to their small size they're more prone to health issues, and they are also not officially recognized by major kennel clubs.
