    Default PUGS FUR...and some are JUST SOFTER then other..lol agree??

    all my pugs have a different set of fur on them.
    Zeus is soo soft he slips right through your arms if you do not watch it. he is silky smooth.
    Max is soft but has a more brittle coat then Zeus for sure
    Zeena is long haired for a pug actually and her heir is pretty soft...can not tell if she slips through my hands..she is too active..
    by far Zeus is the softest of them all...but then he double coated too....

    my little blind pug Otis is longer haired for a black put too but he is soft but not as soft as Zeus either..

    NOW the ears on all the pugs are soft soft soft...

    your pug/pugs?

    Moe is a very fair fawn, double-coated, and very soft.
    Anya is a darker, smuttier fawn, single-coated, and not very soft.
    Moe has about twice as much fur as Anya.
    And non-Pug people think they all look alike! Sheesh!

    Obi's fur is so soft, we call it "angel down". Ami's is a little rougher and longer and curly. My husband says she looks like she got a bad perm. They are both the cutest I've ever seen but I may be biased.

    I have heard people say they all look alike but pug owners know differently. They each have their own look and personality. And I love them all!

    I look twice to tell which pug is which pug here sometimes with the brothers but zeus is apricot fawn and max is stone fawn....and then I can tell. they are close to the same size..........but the fur is totally opposite to each other. max does not have the extra top coat like Zeus does.

    I have 2 pugs with completely different coats. Dorie has super soft fur that feels like mink and is always shiny looking. Piper, our rescue, came to us with a thicker more coarse coat. It seems as though it is getting much softer every day. We groom them weekly and comb her often. It could be that her diet is better now also. I started feeding them lean chicken and rice with vegetables for a digestive problem, and stopped giving them treats almost completely. She is the most beautiful little thing with a precious little face.

    In the dark I can tell which pug is which by the feel of their coats and also by the feel of their bodies and often just by the way they move and breathe.

    Roxy is the softest, as soft as the finest rabbit fur. She is followed by Cleo, also rabbit soft, even as she is being consumed by her terminal conditions. Bailey at 15 or 16 probably has the roughest coat, it was softer, but I think age is robbing her of the ability to digest and absorb the nutrients in her food, as it's a fight to keep weight on her despite a ravenous appetite and plenty of the best food. I hate watching them go downhill.

    The rest fall between but anyone who meets them invariably comments on how soft they are.

    Take care,
    Lisa

    Edie has longer fur than Dolly, its also a little coarser to the touch. Dolly's is much shorter and softer and can easily be ruffled both ways.

    Boo's is VERY soft, especially after a brushing. I could just sit and pet him all day. Diesel is soft but his fur is a bit coarser.
    Like you said Pat, they have such nice ears.

    Oh and, their bare tummy skin is really soft. I love petting their bare bellies!!
