The Pug is a small dog breed with a curled tail and wrinkly, short-muzzled face, and under-bite. Pugs originated in China and were imported into Europe in the sixteenth century. The dogs have a compact body, strong legs, a deep chest, and well-developed muscle. The dogs either have “rose” or “button” ears. Rose ears are smaller than standard button ears. They’re folded with front edge leaning against the side of the dog’s head.
Pugs are rarely aggressive but strong willed. They can also be vivacious or quiet depending on their moods. They’re suitable for families with children. The dogs spend a lot of time napping and have a lazy disposition. They love to follow their owners around.
