I have painted another set of pets for one family. This little pug might be a serious little fellow but I hope it will elicit a huge smile once the recipients sees this very special gift.
We've all heard it before, that a dog ages 7 years for each human year. However, in regard to toy dogs such as the Pug the aging process can surprise you.
Pug Dog Age Chart - The rate at which a dog matures is calculated on his size. Toys age at a faster rate than large breeds. Age equivalency is also based, roughly, on a dog's life span. A rough estimation in the way that a Pug ages is done in the following way:
According to PetPugdog.com
- 1 Years old = The equivalent of 15 human years
- 2 = 23
- 3 = 28
- 4 = 31
- 5 = 35
- 6 = 38
- 7 = 42
- 8 = 45
- 9 = 49
- 10 = 52
- 11 = 56
- 12 = 59
- 13 = 68
- 14 = 72
- 15 = 63
- 16 = 66
- 17 = 70
- 18 = 74
If you have had your Pug for a while, it may be hard to believe that your 12 year old dog is the equivalent age of 59 human years; however this is a guideline that refers to the breakdown of the body's ability to fend off disease, level of exercise a dog is able to handle and so forth. An owner can have a Pug in this teens that still loves to run around the park!
Well whatever age your pug might be he or she will most likely make for a stunning portrait. If you like to learn more about my portraits sizes and rates click below.
