1/20/06 No. There is no such breed. Pugs are not meant to be so small. The average weight is around 18 lb.s Mini Pugs are simply malnourished Pugs. Often breeders who sell these Pugs do not deworm them. So, they are malnourished and small when sold as puppies. However, when the new owner takes them to the vet and gets them dewormed and starts feeding them well, they grow to normal size. Don't be misled. There simply is no such thing as a mini pug. nicole
