The Pug Standard lists that a normal pug should weigh between 14 to 18 pounds, yet in reality pugs weigh anywhere form 12 to 25 lbs, or more.

if weight is an issue for your pug, please consult with your veterinarian. He will be able to judge what a healthy weight for your pug is based on its bone structure. Although, in my personal opinion many Vets like to keep all dogs very slim, and pugs are a stocky breed. They are not suppose to look thin.
